Hm. I appear to be generating; I use setgenerate true.

But nothing appears to be mined after about an hour.

Difficulty already high?
It was high at launch. Not that many total blocks have been found. I have 1 block myself. Just keep it running in the background, you'll find something eventually. Tongue

Mining with the Linux client does not work. I get 0 primes per second even though my processors are pegged at 100%...

Odd, how long as it been running? I'm getting ~40 on an ancient Xubuntu rig.

Man, if PrimeCoin managed to punish for using cloud instances and server-class CPUs, that's an incredible feat, must have obfuscated it quite well! Curious to see how this develops. Smiley

It's necessary though because if not then everyone will eventually switch over to the cloud and the coin dies due to over centralization.

Several minutes now. It even mines at 0 pps on the testnet. My windows box works just fine though at ~130pps.

And primecoind (both the download from sourceforge and the compiled source) are maxing out all my cores at 100%

Not sure...
Only thing I can think of is your blockchain is bugged and not seen as synced. It's compiled and synced flawlessly on a couple linux boxes now, so I'm not sure what could be wrong on your end.

Found one block during the night. Why is primespersec this inconsistent?

still only two block ..  got two though Smiley  

My primespersec is inconsistent as well..   I mean mining always is isn't it.. pretty sure that steady number you always see in any miner is only the average kh/s  my I7 here is between 100-275 the highest ive seen at this point

Can someone help with Linux instructions?  I have it built fine, but when I run primecoind it's complaining about needing to set the RPC password.  Howeer I have already created the necessary primecoin.conf in /home/myuser/.primecoin

any ideas?

Found one in 6hours with a Xeon E5620 2.4G using 3-4 core ( 10-60 pps)
and     one in 9hours with an i7 L620 2.0G laptop using  2-3 core ( 5-30 pps)

So how do I check which primes I have found? And can I name them?  Cheesy

If http://www2.crypto-expert.com/primecoin/ is to be trusted, a little while ago there were 44 connections mining and 20500 XPM already released.
If most of us are getting 1 or 2 rewards at 20XPM per reward... we can estimate we have mined 2640 XPM (estimate based on 3 rewards per connection).

so... Where did all the other rewards go? Pre-Mining by the creator(s)?

People just started mining and people had mined and stopped before. It's a bit silly to estimate, honestly. I doubt Sunny King would premine and not disclose.

24207.8

Track this number and determine the hourly/daily inflation rate.

If the average person on this thread gets 20/40 XPM a day then we could estimate a total amount of coins that could exist after 24 hours of mining.

24207.8 coins would be impossible if only the known people who posted in this thread are mining. They would have to be insta-mining with cloud instances, Amazon E2, etc. I highly doubt SunnyKing would pre-mine but if 24,207 is correct then it's possible that at least 1000 people received 24 coins making the number very possible over 24 hours.

It would mean around 1000 coins are generated per hour. This fits with the block size. But I don't know, let's give it a few days.

If a block takes over 2000 blocks to mature, does that mean no one can send a transaction yet because no possible block is mature enough?

Btw is anyone is concerned about people using virtual machine instances. The easiest way SunnyKing could disable that possibility would be to exploit what virtual CPU's cannot do. They cannot create truly random numbers and cannot do entropy or encryption very well because of this. Maybe coins can use the Trusted Platform Module/Trusted Computing?

If a block takes over 2000 blocks to mature, does that mean no one can send a transaction yet because no possible block is mature enough?

That is to keep people from dumping the coins. Effectively it's impossible to pump and dump XPM. I hope other coins do similar.

All it would take to make any coin pump and dump proof is to randomize the time people receive their rewards. If everyone gets their rewards at the same time everyone dumps at once. So by making it where anyone can receive the reward at any random time makes this less likely. That is just my speculation for why it could be done but SunnyKing has to go into a bit more detail because this coin is a bit esoteric rather than exoteric.
