Here comes a new version! Sorry for the delay...

https://github.com/nicehash/excavator/releases/tag/v1.2.11a

- added support for TITAN Xp
- added algorithm CUDA lyra2rev2
- added API method message
- bug fixes & improvements

Personally, I worked really hard to make AMD support as reliable as possible.
It took me forever to fix all these bugs, but I think it's worth it. Enjoy!
Why were the command line parameters cut? It is common practice, and much easier to utilise miners via comand line params.

I would have kept the command line parameters, but djeZo is a purist and excavator is really his child, so...
I suppose you could ask him to restore the command-line parameters.

I was wondering if I should use ROCm instead of the infamous AMDGPU-PRO for the upcoming Linux support for excavator.
ROCm definitely seems cleaner and more efficient... What do you guys think?

sorry  How to run it on Linux?

I cannot install Microsoft Visual C++, it requires install wine.  I think Wine allows run unsafe software
from Microsoft Windoze - it cannot be used on miners servers.

I cannot found  .deb or other type of releases for linux
please show me if they exists.

Author, will you add Equihash and other algos optimizations for GCN1 cards?

The Linux version is not available yet.
I am still working on hardware acceleration for it.
It seems like I could get some extra help from AMD engineers.
We will see.

Dual-mining and the Linux port are my priorities now, but I will definitely get to GCN1.

Ok, thanx. I'll wait until you have a time to get to GCN1. Hope that it will be in not so far...

Zawawa, I'm relatively new to Ethereum Mining - I've only been doing it a couple of months.
I've tried your Excavator miner and I have to say I'm impressed!
I did some benchmarking with my computer which uses dual GTX 1060 6GB Nvidia graphics cards and while it's 2% slower compared with ethminer, I saved a whopping 12% on electricity using excavator compared with Ethminer, making your miner the more efficient miner by 3%!
Plus, your Excavator miner is a darn sight more stable compared with Ethminer too!

Kudos to you, good sir!

PS.  There's an bug with dag generation and share submission.  After about 4 hours of mining, Excavator generates a new DAG cache, and then the next dozen or so shares are rejected with errors, "Share above target" or "Job not found"

Actually, it's a lot more than a dozen shares.  Checking the output, 791 total shares, 720 accepted, 69 were rejected with "Share above target" - that's a 8.72% failed share rate.

2 were rejected with "Job not found".

More optimizations by dropky are on their way. Very impressive, actually. I am looking into DAG generation right now.

I am facing the following situation, maybe somebody else has found a solution or know what I should look for: all my six 1070 are mining zcash as they should, until excavator crashes (it can take a few minute, or hour or days sometimes) - however when excavator resumes, in the same window, I sees only 5 of the 6 cards. Even if I restart excavator it does not see the other card. Funny thing is - the card is present in device manager.
For the card to reappear, I need to restart the rig, and it's there until excavator crashes again...


Any ideeas?

Guys,

are there going to be any more optimisations for equihash and GTX 1070/1080Ti?
Or the focus now is to have more algos on Excavator?

Dial down your overclock. THis is just the driver failing and crashing for that specific card.

Thanks for the tip - I did, and it seems to work for now.

As a fairly recent miner, only 4 months since start, I would like to aks you guys this: How do you clean your rigs? How often? Does it make sense to clean it? What method do you use?

I have filters in my case so that helps a lot and you can use a wet cloth (wring it good) to clean the fan blades.

djEzo said we would be working exactly on that after the Linux port, which should be ready very soon.

Electric dusters like this one helps a great deal, especially with open-case rigs:
