Can someone tell me if the BM-Client works with Win8?
When I want to start bitminter, Java (newest version) crashes with the following error:
"Recource could not get loaded http://bitminter.com/client/bitminter.jnlp

This is usually caused by antivirus, firewall or bad proxy settings. If you are running AVG or McAfee those are especially problematic. You could try whitelisting javaws.exe and javaw.exe with your security software.

Check whether your java proxy settings are ok: http://www.java.com/en/download/help/proxy_setup.xml (use direct connection if you don't need proxy)

Thanks, I understand now and I am on board with my soon to be 7+ GH/s  which will be the equivalent of 7 MH/s I'm afraid in a few months.

Welcome! Let's try and see the glass as half full and mint some coins Smiley Bitcoin price looks to be on the rise again.


Thanks for you help.
I disabled Kaspersky and it worked. It`s kinda strange because before I upgraded form win7 to 8 it worked well with the same settings.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

i know this is a weird question but does bitminter start on startup without the user having to log in?

BitMinter client has options to start working automatically when you start the program, but it won't start up at boot or login by itself.

In Windows you can drop the shortcut in the "startup" folder on your start menu, on another OS you might set up to run the command "javaws http://bitminter.com/client/bitminter.jnlp" automatically when you log in.

It's amazing how many people are buying miners from Butterfly Labs and turning around and selling their order on eBay the next day.
The prices people are paying for Avalons is insane. Yesterday one went for $50,000:

Here's an Avalon that's bid up to $30,000 today:

Hello,

I've been trying it out the bitminter java app on my osx laptop.  It appears to be mostly happily getting and completing work units(except occasionally it appears to complete all the ones I have) but I don't see any accepted or rejected proffs of work on the server.  It maybe isn't uploading them?  I'm not sure how to tell if this is a network issue with my connection?

Any help would be appreciated.

I looked through most of this thread but did not see what I need to know.  Can someone tell this stupid Windows 7 user how to harvest namecoins into a wallet OR how to convert them into bitcoin?

I am a real idiot, so please provide step by step instructions.  Thanks in advance.

Sadly the MacMini does not have a OpenCL compatible graphics card.  If it has the integrated Intel Graphics (your's does) then it's a no go.

On a unrelated note.  What just happened in the blocks?  99.9% for 10 hours then one solved in minutes using 44Thps?  Glitch in the matrix?

hi i jus done a lil dummy test where i connected to ur bitminter it seems to log on an connect it is mining atm on my cpu as i got a a lame graphics card ( please over look my ignorance i only got into bitcoins a week ago or more)  when it says no open cl compatible does it mean the graphics card in my laptop needs to be different or that i need to upgrade sum software regarding? i'm only doing this to get a feel for it (usin cpu or gpu if possible atm) i knw asic is the future of minning bt we all know thers so very limited availability of asics. however in the future will your bitminter pool work with asics from butterfly( if they ever come) or even other asics. thanks to all in advance for ur help.

 you can run a 2011 mac mini with the amd 6630m gpu.  use firefox it will push 50Mh for hash.

I have a 2011 mini with the gpu.

 no newer mac mini the 2012 there is no 2013 will run  as the gpus are hd4000 integrated.

this mini will run  bitminter if you use firefox at 50Mh

this is your mini

http://store.apple.com/us/configure/MD387LL/A? 

if you run in firefox you may get it to hash at 2Mh waste of power

I am a real idiot, so please provide step by step instructions.  Thanks in advance.


step one;
 sign into a site that takes namecoins and will trade them for bit coins
I use this site

https://vircurex.com/

you need to take screen shots of the pages and copy down the name you sign in with the password etc.
once you are signed in you setup 2 wallets
one for bit  coin  one for name coin
 
   then go to bitminter
1)  okay step one go to the bit minter page and sign in
 2) go to  my account  then go to account details
3) then put the namecoin wallet address you made on the vircurex site into the bitminter namecoin pay to address
4)set a low transfer limit at first so if you made a mistake you will not lose a lot of coins
5) lets say you earn .001 name coins each time you make a block to start set the transfer limit at .004
 6) after you get to .004 the coins will transfer to  vircurex
7) once you see the transfer happen set the limit higher like .2 this way the transfers are one every couple of days
8)send me a pm If you want to give me an email I will try to give you more info with screen shots and the like.

Hello all new users who joined and welcome to the pool. Thanks for the kind words, guys.

i realy like this miner but with my ATI 4870 it is to slow. It only get´s around 85 till 88 Mhs. With GUIminer poclbm and this flags -d 0 -v -w 128 -f 1 i get 104 Mhs.

I'm not sure what has caused this. It's normal for different miners to vary a bit, but that difference looks very large.

I am only making namecoins. How can I make bitcoins too?

You get paid bitcoins when we get a bitcoin block. It's just that we get namecoin blocks more often since their difficulty is lower.

I've been trying it out the bitminter java app on my osx laptop.  It appears to be mostly happily getting and completing work units(except occasionally it appears to complete all the ones I have) but I don't see any accepted or rejected proffs of work on the server.  It maybe isn't uploading them?  I'm not sure how to tell if this is a network issue with my connection?

Apple OpenCL breaks sometimes. It shows a crazy high hash rates and never finds any proofs of work. Reboot your Mac and it will work properly again.

A 10 hour block can happen, that's just bad luck. The other block took just 1 second to complete. In such extreme cases the hashrate estimation gets way off from reality.

Which graphics card do you have?

The pool server already works great with ASICs. There are users in the pool mining on ASICs already. I am working on adding support for BFL SCs in BitMinter client. I aim to have this finished and stable before BFL customers receive their ASICs.

I am running an ATI 6670 and an ATI 4850.  Both are running with a monitor attached to each.  However, unless one of the cards is disabled in device manager in the control panel, none of the bitcoin miners will open.  They just crash.  Again, it instantly works when one card is disabled.

"xxxx.exe has stopped working".

It's the same for ALL of the miners (CGminer, GUIMiner, BitMinter, poclbm).  Bitminter doesn't start and produces an error log.

# Problematic frame:
# C  [amdocl.dll+0x57bee]
