Hey! How's that API going for external miners? I might invest some time and see if I can figure out how to CUDA. Tongue

One block from my 8350, no blocks from my other one running @ 3 cores, none from my Intel i5 in last 24 hours or so.

Is there a way to combine the hashing power of the pcs together?


When you mine, they are essentially working together, however there isn't a way to point them at one daemon yet, that would require an external miner or change to the core code.

Does anyone use Chemisist's rebuild?
Quote
I've git cloned it and recompiled it on the smallest droplet (512MB 1 core) an hour ago. Didn't even had to re-size it to more memory, temporarily creating and destroying swap file for compilation, compiled while still mining.

Excellent results, it's doubled pps to previous version. It varies 250-350 pps. Recommended.

Same. Getting 300-450pps




How do I compile that?

I have the original Sunny build with the sieve update in my VPS'

Thanks for the input!
Well, somebody has to wright the full howto, so since there are no other volunteers...

First, it's easier to create the new smallest droplet. If you want to do it on the existing one you can do it also, I'll make cleaer the difference.

Create smallest droplet (512MB/ 1 CPU), select your region, select Ubuntu 13.04 x64. It has no desktop, we don't need it and desktop may make mining just a bit slower. Connect to a droplet console.

First change the root password, it's awkward to use default DigitalOcean password, hard to remember, type:
Code:
passwd
and enter the new password twice.
It's not recommended to work as root under linux, you can easily mess things up. Create a new user and make it a sudoer so it can do what root can, but safely. Enter a new password for the user and few enters, no need to enter other info:
Code:
adduser <newusername>
Make a newly created user a sudoer:
Code:
adduser <newusername> sudo
Now logoff and login again as a newly created user for the first time:
Code:
logoff
Then install all the apps and libraries you'll need in one step, -y at the and saves you for having to confirm things:
Code:
sudo apt-get install git build-essential libssl-dev libboost-all-dev libdb5.3++-dev -y
If you already had a droplet earlier, you begin here. Remove the previous source of the primecoin, if you created new instance skip only this one step:
Code:
rm -rf primecoin
Now get fresh software from Chemisist repo on GitHub:
Code:
git clone https://github.com/Chemisist/primecoin.git
Create temporary swap file and mount it as swap, this avoids compilation errors which are all due to the lack of memory, 512MB is not enough for compilation:
Code:
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=64M count=16
sudo mkswap /swapfile
sudo swapon /swapfile
Move where the action takes place:
Code:
cd ~/primecoin/src
Compile the software, this takes a while, go get a cup of coffee:
Code:
make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=-
Unmount and remove the swap file, we don't need it for normal usage:
Code:
sudo swapoff /swapfile
sudo rm /swapfile
Create directory for wallet, configuration and logs:
Code:
mkdir ~/.primecoin
Create configuration file. For newbies, just type the first line, you'll get a prompt for second and third line:
Code:
echo "rpcuser=ARPCUserName
rpcpassword=SomethingReallyLongOK
gen=1" > ~/.primecoin/primecoin.conf
Move newly created executable to it's permanent place, where it will also be in the path:
Code:
sudo mv primecoind /usr/local/bin/.
Go home and start mining:
Code:
cd ~
primecoind --daemon
Watch the statistics and also get info about newly mined blocks:
Code:
watch 'primecoind listtransactions & primecoind getmininginfo'

This should be it. You should have 300 pps in a few minutes. Tips are appriciated.


getting error couldnt find libdb5.3++-dev

Try apt-get install libdb-dev Smiley

Anyone else getting remote desktop connection issues? 1104 in Remote Desktop for windows, VNC just connects and quits..
1006  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: [XPM] [FASTER!] Mining PrimeCoin using DigitalOcean (VPS) on: July 12, 2013, 03:55:27 PM
My suggestion is to look for other providers.  Wink

ca. 0,01 per hour per instance

What provider is that? Smiley
1007  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: [XPM] [FASTER!] Mining PrimeCoin using DigitalOcean (VPS) on: July 12, 2013, 03:14:45 PM
I would be happy to keep paying.  But seems they do not want my money for mining.

Exactly! I think that due to their overselling model (which is necessary for good pricing....) they just can't support people using 100% of a resource. I'm sure we'd have the same trouble if we were using all 640GB of SSD space on the 20 core plan, or all 1GBit of the shared connection all the time, or the full 96GB of RAM on the 24-core plan. It's a matter of balance.
1008  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: [XPM] Primecoin v0.1.1 Release - Windows Build Ready on: July 12, 2013, 03:13:12 PM
Awesome! Linux binaries soon? Smiley (Compiled on Ubuntu great, CentOS is a nightmare, and all of my servers take forever to resolve dependencies and such xD)

Linux build is being prepared. Should be available within 24 hours.

Awesome!
1009  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: [XPM] Primecoin v0.1.1 Release - Windows Build Ready on: July 12, 2013, 03:06:00 PM
In v0.1.1:

  • Improved built-in miner performance
  • Minor GUI display fixes

Credits to those who also contributed to this release:

Mike270
pankkake
Reed G. Law

This is not a mandatory upgrade, but for miners it is recommended to upgrade.

Instructions:
  • Backup wallet, record your balance.
  • Uninstall v0.1.0.
  • Set up v0.1.1. Double check you balance is correct when client starts.

Have fun!

Well first off im using a generated visa card with 0 balance and getting the biggest instance I can get. They keep telling me its because ive been flagged by their fraud detection system or some shit. They ask me questions trying to verify my identity. Which I fake it but they don't buy it. lol

Every time I basicly tell them good job running off a customer Ill go somewhere else. rofl

I have been using a vpn and a vps ive been creating accounts on. Its not IP, they are flagging for other stuff.
Wow you really are a complete fucking tool.  You are openly admitting that you have been defrauding them and plan to continue to do so.  Don't be such a fucking jerk and pay them for the resources you are using.  
Just FYI the mods of the forum have been notified of this and will be passing your email address and list of your login IP addresses to digital ocean.  I suggest you go hide in a corner somewhere for a while.

+1

some of us are actually paying customers, and then we have assholes who ruin it for the rest of us.
Agreed. I've paid for around $100 in digitalocean services for mining, I think cheating them with these coupon codes is terrible. The coupon codes are to get people interested in their service, not to be abused for high-usage instances. Sad
1011  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: [XPM] [FASTER!] Mining PrimeCoin using DigitalOcean (VPS) on: July 12, 2013, 03:03:29 PM
I've had plenty of accounts banned, and I've never used a coupon code once. I've paid them around $100 worth of money from paypal and a real credit card, and they keep banning my account, saying I violated the ToS. The first time, I agree, as I made a bunch of accounts to get many drops, and I later read the ToS (more carefully, anyhow) and making multiple accoutns on the same payment method without prior notice to them is against the TOS. However, I then made a subsequent account with a credit card instead (different payment method) and got banned as well. Their twitter mentioned mining is fine (for now), and they refused to tell me the violation. I made another account with another PayPal (a good friend of mine's), and that account got locked and suspended and flagged as suspicious.

It seems to not be related to the coupon codes. I'm thinking they can't truly handle the computing power they sell at that price, and of course practice overselling (which isn't a bad thing, normally!). However, I wish they had a way to pay a bit more and get DEDICATED resources, so maybe for $2.38 an hour or something you could get a full 24 cores dedicated to you (which is probably a full node for them). However, unless they go down this route, I think mining accounts will keep getting banned. It's unfortunate. They asked me for details about myself. I gave websites, names, facebook, location, public twitter handle, and public business handles on an account I made with a different payment system, which according to my understanding of the ToS is perfectly acceptable. They locked this account as suspicious.

I think I'm done with digital ocean.

Did you make all of the accounts from the same ip? That might be the problem. My account is fine for now.

Nope, have switched IPs 4 times.

Hello! This bounty is for a working, good-speed implementation (faster than a cpu of equivalent price by a few times, at least) of a primecoin miner for GPUs. Either CUDA or OpenCL is fine.
Requirements: Binaries for windows and linux, as well as source code released publicly.

If any mod (or admin!) would be open to holding the escrow account for this bounty, I'd be happy to send over my 400XPC and post that address in OP so others can donate.

Bump. Smiley

Just a reminder, DigitalOcean 16-core instances get around 2500-2600 primes per sec, and cost $0.72 per hour.
Try 32-core EC2 instance  Wink

How much per hour? I might give it a try Tongue

For those of you who want instances with 16 cores, make one with 8 cores, and then resize it.

Overnight, each of my 16-core instances got 7-8 blocks Cheesy (8 hours maybe 9? Smiley )

I've just started an 8 core droplet and I'm getting anywhere from 700-1200 pps. I will probably to a 16 core at night but if it really creates an average of 1 block per hour you can make around 10 800xpm per month which can later be converted to nearly 50BTC . This means that your profit is $3k.

Well, with rising difficulty and GPU miners at some point, that won't hold true for long. Sad
