I've installed namecoind, created a bitcoin.conf with user and pwd, started the daemon which downloaded all blocks, then retrieved my address and entered it into the mining.bitcoin.cz account.

Is there anything else I must do to start the namecoin mining?

What is the username and password for?

Apparently slush's pool no longer supports merged mining according to "fourd00rgtz"?

See this post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1976.msg1764838#msg1764838

Try this pool for stratum based merged mining: http://mmpool.bitparking.com/pool

At namecoin's current difficulty level (seen here: http://dot-bit.org/tools/nextDifficulty.php ) it is going to be a long time until you mine a namecoin block going it alone unless you have an ASIC handy.

Thanks! I still don't know what is the username/pwd I had to create in bitcoin.conf for. Where to enter it?

I would really love to see Namecoin merged mining come back soon on stratum interface. FWIW I use Namecoins to register .bit domains and there is a lot of attention and activity in the Namecoin space recently... I might have to switch to another pool. Sad

Well, probably not a DDoS, just some weird issue on server. Seems to be fixed, I'll watch it closely for some time...

Edit: I also fixed that displaying bug in "Stratum connections" on Statistics page.

Im using BAMT and the old getwork protocol.  What would be the easiest way to get this stratum compatible?  

The proxy?  I tried that when it came out, but I couldn't get it to work.  I tried to put it on a windows machine and then point all my BAMT machines to the proxy, but that didnt work.  After some more reading this morning I realize that I need to install it on each BAMT machine.  Is this the case?  Im not sure how to do that...  I found some posts saying that it doesnt work well with BAMT.

I could also try to upgrade my miner in BAMT right?  I found some instructions here, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=127622.0 but that is a bit over my head.  Also, the link for the replacement mother doesnt seem to be working.

I'm guessing putting the proxy on each BAMT machine would be the easiest way out for me.  Any tips on how to do that?  I am a novice user.

I am using a bamt machine in conjunction with a separate machine running the proxy.  I have the bamt machine running two video cards.  And a windows 7 machine with none, but with the proxy running.

The bamt machine has to be pointed at the ip address of the proxy machine instead of the ip address of the pool.  And make sure the port is correct too.  That's all that matters.  You can have multiple user names all going through the same proxy.  You can have multiple bamt machines all going through the same proxy.

HIt me back if you can't make it work.  I've worked with the proxy quite a bit...

You also get paid better with stratum.  Currently the getwork doesnt get any share of the fees, and pays a higher percentage overall.  That would make up for your stales.

You also might want to check the shares on your miner vs the shares actually getting counted by slush.  I've heard of miners counting shares as stale when the pool actually counted them as legit.

aha. thanks for this info.
I am using Guiminer and I can see only total shares all. Only if i try to reset guiminer every time the block will be solved but..... waste of time.

Currently the getwork interface has ~10x higher rejection rate than Stratum, because of scaling issues in getwork architecture; and I'm not going to waste a time to fix it.

There were many "stale" shares because of today's morning crash of the server.

I'm currently looking into some unusual results from slush's pool payouts. Most blocks on which I complete work (shares) receive the appropriate payouts however some display shares completed but no payout amount.
A screenshot of this issue can be found at https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_G2Isi7ITVMR25OcnRBYXkwams/edit?usp=sharing .
worker name: brinebold.worker1
uasername: brinebold

Can anyone explain this behavior. Please don't just blindly guess though. If you can't test your theory or provide a definitive answer, please move along.

I don't think these are stale shares because the odds of every single one of hundreds of shares being stale in the same block and this issue occurring on multiple blocks seem incredibly unlikely.
I don't believe this is a case where no work was successfully submitted because I was apparently awarded shares by the pool.
I don't think this is a case of simply being rounded down to 0 because I don't meet the minimum for a payout because the division works out to more than other blocks for which I have received a payout.
I don't think there is a problem with that blockchain, for example, it was rejected by the bitcoin swarm, because other people received a payout for one of these blocks.
These aren't simply unconfirmed blocks because there are blocks that are confirmed that also have shares but 0 payout.

However, if you can find some way to confirm any of those theories, I'd be glad to try it.

That's probably happening because the last share submitted was during the beginning of that round, and there weren't any submitted toward the end of the round.

For example.  If I am mining with a nice video card and cranking out 1 share per second for the first hour of a round, then the power goes out and the round lasts for 3 hours, my reward will drop to 0, or almost zero because the shares are weighted to discourage pool hopping.  The shares that come at the end of the round have more weight than the shares that come at the beginning of a round.

I had that yesterday - a reward of none for a few hours but it git fixed after.

Why isnt cgminer working with:

"pools" : [
   {
      "url" : "stratum+tcp://ipv6.stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333",

A ping resolves fine, my ipv6 is fine.

It's obvious that you put Difficulty setting on pool's web-site to 128. That means that your miners will not send ANYTHING unless they collect at least 128 shares. Only after that they will send them to the pool to request some reward.
To resolve your issue - decrease difficulty setting to 1.

P.S. Yes, I know, that actually difficulty works in some other way, but it's the most easy way to explain its meaning and why its better to put 1 on slow miners.

I don't think that could not be the issue here. If I were completing shares but not submiting them, why would the stats page be showing that I have 384 shares. Even if the page only displays shares given instead of shares received, it would make no sense that I would pick up multiple sets of work without submitting the first set.

I have dropped my suggested difficulty from 64 to 1 though to test this.
