Yes, this will be great milestone in the History of BitCoin!

Not a W7 issue, using it right now (64bit) and with nvidia 8800gt (cuda) and no khash drops when in background.
I thought he meant that the ATI Streaming SDK v 2.1 didn't take on his Windows 7 box.  I had the same problem with 2.1 and 2.2, which is why I'm running 2.3.

That's was precisely it.  I'm stuck with the 2.3 SDK, though I've tried for days to downgrade...  I'm not in the mood to slick my OS...

I doesn't seem to be "building the kernel"...
Did you get it to work with the older kernel?

No, I haven't been able to isolate the issue.  I tried to downgrade to the ATI SDK 2.1, but it didn't take on my crappy W7 box.

Also, I'm way out of my league tweaking .cl files. Grin

I'm happy with my 50Khash for now...

I got my 1.23 BTC, which will be worth $2,856,092,198.89 someday! 

I enjoyed helping the experiment.

Running much more smoothly today...
8  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: New mining pool for testing on: February 01, 2011, 01:31:50 PM
Over the next week or two, I am testing some new mining pool software.  If you can spare a miner for an hour or day or three, testing is greatly appreciated.

Happy to help...

I see at least 2 issues there.  The first is that you don't have a "Target = " message, which means you have not successfully retrieved work from the RPC server.  The second is that you don't have a "Build program rval=" message, which means the kernel is still being built.

Did the previous release of the OpenCL miner work on the same machine, and does the current CPU miner work on it?  Did you extract all the files in the archive to a new directory, not just over the old ones?  What graphics card do you have?

I did get the "Target =" message, it just didn't get in the paste.

Yes, the old OpenCL miner worked flawless, and the current CPU miner works too.  And yes, new directory for the new miner clients...

I have an ATI Radeon HD 5500 Series (Redwood) with Catalyst 10.11 drivers and ATI Stream 2.3.

My system is a W7 box with a AMD Phenom(tm) II X2 550 Processor

11  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / GPU to hash metrics on: January 19, 2011, 07:43:09 PM
Are the number of Stream Processors the most effective specification to directly relate a specific GPU to hash/s metrics?

For instance:

My ATI "Redwood" has 400 stream processors and can push about 36,000 khash/s.  (@90 khash/s per stream)

An ATI HD 5970 can put out 560,000 khash/s with 3,200 stream processors (@175 khash/s per stream)

My NVidia Quadra NVS 135M has 8 stream processors (hahah!) and does 950 khash/s  (@~120 khash/s per stream)


Other metrics don't seem to matter that much, i.e. GPU memory and memory speed, GPU clock speed, bus width, etc.

Okay, finally got it to work with CUDA.  I had to set a GPUGRID option to 16.  I'm trying additional options and tracking each.

From the looks of it, there's a timeout reached before my system can fully allocate resources.

BitCoinPurse, you have to use correct worker's login.

My logins for slush were just fakes for fun.  Are there other worker logins?  Where do I find/set those?
14  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: RPC Miners (CPU/4way/CUDA/OpenCL) on: January 17, 2011, 04:42:30 PM
Trying CUDA on my laptop...

Quadro NVS 135M.  I have the 260.99 drivers and the 3.2 Dev Drivers.  The miner starts and does it's initial config, then errors out after a minute with:


..\..\src\cuda\bitcoinminercuda.cpp(147) : cudaSafeCall() Runtime API error : the launch timed out and was terminated.


These are my launch params:

15  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: RPC Miners (CPU/4way/CUDA/OpenCL) on: January 16, 2011, 04:35:23 PM
Once I installed the ATI Stream SDK (v2.3) for my ATI Radeon HD 5500 Series my GPU mining finally worked!

I went from around 2,500khash/s (CPU) to an amazing 30,000khash/s (GPU).

Unresolved problems:

2. Where do we get a Japanese person who know manga and bitcoins? There is also the issue of no known Japanese bitcoin using community.

Satoshi Nakamoto?!?
17  Economy / Trading Discussion / Exchange Market *Special* Report 29 July on: July 29, 2010, 11:25:38 PM
Today we witnessed a major shift in the two BTC exchange markets.  Bids now outweigh Asks by a margin of about 3 to 1 on GOX (Ask Volume: 3686.57  Bid Volume: 9420.01), and a quick glance at the offers tables at the BCM show many more bids than asks.  It's pretty clear that exchange prices are rising after a slump at the beginning of the week.

Doesn't the US government track all packages and shipping?  Wouldn't they notice if a bunch of packages where shipped to or from a particular address without any corresponding traceable money transactions?

LOL!  Thanks for the morning laugh!
19  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Shipping Options on: July 28, 2010, 12:09:10 PM
Use fixed rate postage boxes from the US Post Office.

If you do trade them for BTC, make sure to arrange the transaction through a middleman
