1  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Getting the most out of CPU mining on: February 28, 2011, 03:39:55 AM
I'm on Ubuntu.  Would switching to something on Windows really be faster?

I'm legitimately asking, not being sarcastic.
2  Bitcoin / Mining / Getting the most out of CPU mining on: February 28, 2011, 03:33:06 AM
Hey there,

I'm just wondering if anyone would be willing to give me any suggestions (beyond buying a new computer) to improve my hash rate.  I have a Intel Core Duo 2.28 w/ 3 GB L3 cache.  Unfortunately I'm sitting on a ATI Mobility 3400...so no GPU mining for me.  I'm running jgarik's (I think that's his name) miner and only getting roughly 300khps with 2 threads and the cryptopp algorithm. The 4way algorithm seems to be popular, but I can't get above 200kbps with it.

There was a fellow on the new pooled mining thread saying I should be getting proof of works every 6 minutes or so.  I can't get 1 in 6 hours...more like 12 or 13.

The economics of cpu mining are VERY bad - especially if you are paying the electric bill.



I'm not. So...I want to take this for all it's worth.  It's called "utilities included"..and it's a beautiful thing.

Have been getting RPC errors and the following error message at the site for a few minutes now:

Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'MongoCursorException' with message 'couldn't send query: Broken pipe' in /usr/local/www/apache22/data/_auth.php:33 Stack trace: #0 /usr/local/www/apache22/data/_auth.php(33): MongoCollection->findOne(Array) #1 /usr/local/www/apache22/data/acc.php(2): include('/usr/local/www/...') #2 {main} thrown in /usr/local/www/apache22/data/_auth.php on line 33



Yep..it's boinked.

How often should that happen? I've been running for quite some time (13 hours or so) and that's the first time that's happened. Just CPU mining...
3-8 times per minute on a single GPU, once in 6 minutes on modern Intel CPU and once in 8 hours on p3-class old CPU.

This is not happening for me.  I'm running an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor P8400 (2.26 GHz, 3MB L2 Cache) with 64-bit Ubuntu (10.10).  Using jg's cpuminer...cryptopp algorithm

Any ideas?

What does "PROOF OF WORK RESULT: true (yay!!!)" mean?

Are CPU miners not supported? It's okay if not. I just don't want to continue messing with this trying to make it work.
Just tested jgarzik's CPU miner and it worked fine for me.
Try to use -P key and see, what it's trying to parse. Then copy it and send to me by private message, i'll try to resolve.
BTW it's deepbit.net, not www.deepbit.net. But works anyway.

Sent! ..At least I think..my outbox is always empty even after I send a PM. It bugs me. But yeah...I think it should be in your inbox!
Got it. You are trying to connect to port 80 instead of 8332.
Use http://deepbit.net:8332 as URL

I'm using the newer CPU miner...

Code:
* Connection #0 to host www.deepbit.net left intact
JSON decode failed(1): '[' or '{' expected near '<'
json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds

Any ideas?

I also just finished my first article...still waiting to get approved and make some BTC!

Hey there,

I think I'm interested in writing for you.  I've been looking at this for a few days and stumbled across some registration/login page for writers, but I can't seem to find it again.

Was I dreaming? If so, how do I get involved? I already know about the deadline and all.

Alright, Thanks!

Code:

It does.

Hey..there is no blame here at all. I'm just stating the obvious.  I'm actually trying to get in on the action myself.

Hey there,

I was wondering if I could get a point in the right direction here.

I'm using an ATI mobility HD 3400 (super beefy, I know), have ATI STREAM SDK installed using the .deb files floating around.  When I try to start DiabloMiner I get:

Code:
ERROR: OpenCL platform ATI Stream contains no devices

I've tried export DISPLAY=:0 and export DISPLAY=:1 (the latter of which was just a stab in the dark)

Any suggestions?

I don't agree that mining is a sideshow for Bitcoins right now.

Please read the https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/FAQ because it seem that you are asking basic question about how bitcoin works.

Thank you for the suggestion. I've read this several times, however, and I was really just trying to find out where all this is headed. That's all.

No, it is because it guarantees that there will be no more.

So....I'm trying to make this make sense using real events.

Are we in a "gold rush" stage with Bitcoins? Where eventually the difficulty will get so high that the rate of new mints will be SUPER slow? So then..the "bitcoin veins" will dry up and people will have whatever they have and won't likely be able to mint new ones...? Then...people will have to do business to actually move them around?
