So I just installed a 6950, installed ATI and OpenCL drivers.  I get the same error when trying to run either GUIminer or via command line poclbm;

2011-06-03 20:47:01: Running command: poclbm.exe --user=XXXXXX --pass=XXXXXX -o localhost -p 8332 -d0 --verbose
2011-06-03 20:47:02: Listener for "Default" started

2011-06-03 20:47:15: Listener for "Default" shutting down


Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

You sure your backend bitcoind is working? Try mining with a pool for an hour and see if the same thing happens. I doubt it will.

Figured it out.

You need to add flags to the  Miner console

-v -w128 -f60

In the Extra Flags: section.

Hope this helps all of us new miners!

-f is the desktop framerate you want. If it's a dedicated mining desktop, set it to 1. I normally set mine to 20 and my computer if perfectly usable.

IE. Lower desktop framerate = more mh/s.

Yes, I am youtubing as well~  6970 Lightning OC'd to 970mhz core clock = 330 Mhash right now with -f60, good enough for me.

Can mine and play on PC.
