Hey I am very new to the world of bitcoin (and fairly new to linux for that matter) and found the entire concept pretty interesting so I was thinking about setting up a "hobby rig" for mining. Right now I am just using my CPU (dev 0) as proof of concept until I get it figured out, will probably invest in a decent GPU if I can ever get this to work...
Apologies in advance, I know that this has probably been covered a million times but I tried searching around the forums and couldn't find anything helpful.
I am running Ubuntu, I used this guide http://forum.bitcoin.org/?topic=7514.0
to set up my miner. Install seemed to go flawlessly. Using poclbm to mine.
I have created an acct on Deepbit and entered the command below into terminal, username and password has been redacted, of course. sudo ./poclbm.py --frames=1 --worksize=128 --host=deepbit.net --port=8332 --user=<username> --pass=<password> --device=0
My processor then revs up wide open and begins cranking out hashes.deepbit.net:8332 20/06/2011 17:33:01, Setting pool <username> @ deepbit.net:8332
deepbit.net:8332 20/06/2011 17:33:12, Using new LP URL /listenChannel
deepbit.net:8332 20/06/2011 17:33:12, LP connected to deepbit.net:8332
deepbit.net:8332 2358 khash/s
Although when I log into my deepbit acct to check my totals, this is what I get<username>*
Workers not connected
Balance is updated once per hour
Average speed in last 5 minutes
I let the miner run in terminal for a few hours today but still get nothing when I check my account on deepbit.
