Hi all, I'm trying to join a mining pool. I installed the Ubuntu stuff following the instructions on the Mining How To sticky. Both programs run when I type them in the command line. I created an account at BTCGuild and am trying to connect there to get started. When I try to run either phoenic or poclbm using this syntax:
./phoenix.py -u http://worker_name:worker_password@btcguild.com:8332/ -k poclbm DEVICE=1
or
./poclbm.py -d1 --host=btcguild.com --port=8332 --user=worker_name --pass=worker_password

I get <password> command not found at the prompt.

What am I missing.

Thanks for the help!

This is probably the most corner case thing ever. My password contained a special character than Linux's console didn't like. Changed that and now have 'Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC.' I assume this is because I don't have all of the blocks yet?

thx!
