Hello everyone, I'm using old jgarzik miner (CPU only) to mine with 1 cpu thread and poclbm python miner to work on the GPU. I'm using deepbit.

I've set up two workers, jgarzik works on CPU mining, and finds a share every hour (that's really slow! I know).

the other worker uses the latest m0chil python gpu miner and it's using full GPU and 100% of one CPU core (cause the latest nvidia cude implementation) BUT IT DOESN'T FIND ANYTHING!

I get 4.8 Mhash on a Geforce 8600GT and 0.9 Mhash on one AMD X2 +4400 core using sse2_64 algorithm.

My problem:
why does the cpu worker find a share every hour, and the gpu worker is not finding anything, even though it has 5 times the cpu power?

Thanks in advance.

update:
I tried using new gpuminer implementation from ckolivas. but it's giving me a segmentation fault:
ckolivas-cpuminer-b66aa45$ ./minerd --gpu-threads 1 --url http://pit.deepbit.net:8332/ --user myuser --pass mypassword

Then I tried again using ./minerd --gpu-threads 1 --url http://pit.deepbit.net:8332/ --userpass myusername:mypassword

fixed! All I had to do was to rollback the last commit:

https://github.com/m0mchil/poclbm/commit/3d43c4e4c2c476cf367822868202f02d168d6f3b

It seems that the new code:
#define Ma(x, y, z) amd_bytealign( (z^x), (y), (x) )
is not the same as the old code:
#define Ma(x, y, z) amd_bytealign((y), (x | z), (z & x))


I changed the code back to use the old one. Now my poclbm uses "amd_bytealign((y), (x | z), (z & x))" , and the gpu started to get shares. Everything runs as it should Cheesy

Update
My bad. it's not finding anything Sad . It got 3 accepted solutions the first 15 minutes, and then it just stayed there.
