Your p2pool could be connected to forked nodes?

I don't know how this connected to forked nodes, i'm using the default configuration... what i'm doing wrong? and how can I avoid those forked nodes?

Thanks

Right now you can't avoid them if you are using p2pool.
Use a different TRC pool
or do solo mining (if you are a fast miner).
The correct chain has 175038 blocks now.

Hello everybody.

I recently updated my p2pool installation to 13.2 and my TRC client/wallet to the last available 0.1.3-44 and this started a multitude of problems and malfunctions.

- My p2pool shortcut command is: (...program path) --net terracoin -a myTRCpublicaddress
- My TRC client/wallet shorcut command is: (program path) -datadir=Y:\Terracoin (I use another data dir than the default)
- In my default TRC datadir path and in Y:\Terracoin directory I have a notecard called "terracoin.conf" with this text:

server=1
rpcuser=(myusername)
rpcpassword=(mypassword)
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1

Something wrong is happening after do these updates, there are no shares, no orphan, no dead..., no payments, a lot of block-stales detected and everything has stopped working normally.  I deleted and rebuild the TRC client and p2pool share blocks but still the same issue.   I use CGminer 2.11.4 for mining and the program connects and shows good the accepted shares as always but it's like not connected.  

I never had problems with p2pool and TRC, What can I do?


MINX you are on right chain if you are on -44. The problem is high difficulty blocks as chain heals from the mandatory upgrade and the prior attack. p2pool as a whole is on the wrong chain, that's a lot of hash power going to waste.

There is a patch needed, I think, to mine on new p2pool network for correct chain. See this post:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=176424.msg2816945#msg2816945

He's running a node with new client and correct chain. A TRC-friendly asic just joined one of the other pools to help get some of these high difficulty blocks off our back.

Uhm, sorry for the noobies question i give here, but i guess i need something sorted out about P2pool. First of all, i always used Slush's pool, so i used cgminer and the same string everyone is using and mined away. Yesterday i read about p2pool and went to the website p2pool.org and all i saw on the mainsite was

Quote
Mining for Bitcoins on P2Pool.org is quick and easy. Simply point your miner to the provided URL and use your Bitcoin address as the username and payments will be sent there automatically. Use settings below to start mining BTC!

Pool URL:   http://p2pool.org:9332
Username:   Bitcoin Address
Password:   Anything

So i did that and it worked for some time. In the meantime i read more about it and the wiki says that i have to run the Bitcoin client and have to connect to my own localhost with the p2pool client. BUt the site clearly stated that i can run it as stated in the above quote.

I am using OS X with a compiled cgminer and all i did was using the string

Quote
cgminer -o http://p2pool.org:9332 -u {my wallet string} -p {choosen password}

Am i doing it wrong or am i working the good way?

Most people run their own but using a public one like you are is also a good idea. That way you don't have to set it up or run Bitcoin.

Well, that sounds ok Smiley but am i not stealing shares from slower miners with my miner because my difficulty is still 1?

And when do they pay out? I mean, it is weekly, monthly or wen you have reached a certain goal like 1BTC? As i said, i am a noob in p2pool mining and all i want is doing the right way to give everyone the best outcome. But like it seems now it pays better then Slush's pool or is there some kind of sneaky thing behind this story?

Sorry for all my questions Sad

No you aren't stealing. I run 22ghs at diff 1. You get paid instantly when a block is found. Sometimes none in a week, sometimes 3 a day. You get virgin coins.

Coins with no history. They are made in the generation coinbase and paid directly to you. Most pools the generation goes to the pool, then the pool pays it out.

Ah ok, learned again something today Smiley

But what is better...doing this:

Quote
Install Bitcoin. If you have it running, close it. Run TextEdit. Press the Cmd, Shift, and T keys at the same time. The editor's toolbar should disappear; this is required for plain text editing. Write:

rpcpassword=(A password. You don't have to type it yourself - so it can be random.)
server=1

Save the file as "bitcoin.conf" on your "Bitcoin" folder, which is inside your "Application Support folder", which is inside your "Library folder", which is inside your home folder. Run Bitcoin.

Download the latest source from the P2Pool thread. Extract the file. Run Terminal. Type "cd " (with a space in the end), then drag the folder where P2Pool is to Terminal, then press enter. Type "python run_p2pool.py". Run your miner (cgminer?) and connect it to 127.0.0.1:9332 with any username and password. Wait a few minutes. If P2Pool shows "Local: X H/s", where X is higher than 0, then P2Pool is correctly working. Although your miner should show it's earning shares, it could take a few hours until getting your first P2Pool share. Don't worry; this doesn't limit your earnings.

Or just simply pointing my miner to the URL they give me and go with the flow? And how can i add more difficulty? Is there an option to put in the string cgminer -o http://p2pool.org:9332 -u {my wallet string} -p {choosen password}??

Don't use p2pool.org as they are running an outdated version of p2pool that's forked from the rest of the pool. If you're gonna use a public node, look for one that's running 13.1 or newer.

Difficulty is set by the pool, not in the miner. It's pool-specific how they figure out what difficulty to tell your miner, or if you are running your own p2pool I assume there's a way to set it (or maybe it's dynamic). I don't use p2pool myself, but there won't be a cgminer option for it directly. (Some pools let you pass instructions on what difficult you want in your username or password field.)

So simply running my own server is the best thing to do? And i have set a new p2pool which is located in my country and i receive a lot less rejects now. But they do not have many users, so i guess finding and finishing a block isn't top notch i guess Sad

If you are using a node that is on the main version, it doesn't matter how many users are on it.  We're all on the same team, working for the same thing.

Ah, at the end it is the same as using Slush's pool then? Is there a good thing which i should take in mind to switch over to a p2pool? Or is staying with Slush pool eventually the same?

its p2pool, it dosnt matter at which p2pool instance you mine on (well there are some faulty ones out there intending to steal coins)...
the best way is to run p2pool locally

Statistically, using p2pool will be the same as solo mining over time, minus whatever amount you choose to donate to the author (or whatever the node you are using is charging you).  The higher your hash rate, the lowest the variance, and the quicker that will statistically even out. 

Running a local node isn't that hard.  Try it, if after a few days it doesn't seem to be working out, there are a number of reliable public nodes out there.

Lastly, whatever you do, I recommend having backup pools in your mining configuration.  Just don't cross pool types, it isn't guaranteed to work.  That is, if your main is a p2pool node, all your backups should be p2pool nodes.
