People starting to mine should know that by now block finds are rare even on i7 3770k @ 4.4 !
I used to find a block a day and I have found none during the last 72h...

Can someone confirm that -hp7 works? Didn't find a block since 24hrs.

Can someone of the "big players" could confirm that -hp7 works fine for them?

I might not be a big player but I can nevertheless confirm that hp7 works fine - if you mean in terms of solving blocks with it. I can confirm that for both mikaelh's 64 bit binary for linux and the 64 bit binary for windows.

Anyone have any luck getting this to run on the Xeon Phi?

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/xeon/xeon-phi-detail.html

Phi are coprocessors, and probably require specific coding to utilize them. On the other hand, intel might've designed them to be virtualized by certain OS so that they can seamlessly be used as 'normal' CPU by any processes, but I doubt it.

From your link:

Quote
Ease of programming Intel® architecture

Applications can support both Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors which use common languages, models, and tools, including:

    Familiar and standard development tools—no need for learning new languages or tools
    Intel® tools like Intel® Cluster Studio XE, as well as many tools from other vendors
    Popular approaches such as Message Passing Interface, OpenMP, Fortran’s DO CONCURRENT*, Intel® Threading Building Blocks (Intel® TBB) , and Intel® Cilk™ Plus

It sounds like it could be done, but someone would have to sit down with them and develop the code, then do tests.

You don't need a source package. You are missing the library itself. The package should be called miniupnpc on CentOS. Try yum install miniupnpc

Is it already too difficult to get some results?

I'm mining with an i7 and get ~800-1000 pps. But didn't find anything in the last 20h  Sad

I think it might be already too difficult. I'm running on OS X 10.8.4, and I set up an Ubuntu OS in VMWare Fusion. It's running around 600-700 ops, has gone through almost 80,000 blocks in 24 hours, and there's nothing produced so far. I'll let it keep running for a few days. I understand that luck is a major factor, so maybe lady luck will visit me.

Why not run native? you could probably get better PPS than that. and the code compiles fine native OSX.

The simplest answer to this question is that I was able to find a great guide (like "Mining Primecoin for Total Dumbsh*ts") for Linux, but not one for OS X. I understand the very broad concept of compiling code, but I am not familiar with actually doing it. Smiley

You can compile the binary without upnp:
Set USE_UPNP:=- by editing the file "makefile.unix" in the src-directory:
Code:
# :=0 --> UPnP support turned off by default at runtime
# :=1 --> UPnP support turned on by default at runtime
# :=- --> No UPnP support - miniupnp not required
USE_UPNP:=-

It's on RPMforge. See this link how to enable this in yum:
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/RPMForge

Then, you can install using the command you've tried above.

I assume that you are using the binaries. If you did compile it yourself, see masterOfDisaster's comments on how to disable UPNP completely.

Thanks but thats not a current enough version it installs libminipnpc.so.5

I may have to try to compile this myself, but doubt I will go to that effort I was mainly going to use it to test this new system for a day or two.

Looks like there's an issue with the Linux Qt binaries in the HP7 release. They use dynamic linking for all libraries instead of static linking where possible. I will update the Linux binaries soon.

Oh yeah, there are still the glibc and libstdc++ dependencies. Those are quite hard to get rid of. For now your best option is probably to compile it yourself. You can try taking a few pointers from my guide here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=259022.0

That only shows how to compile the daemon though. You'll need to install the Qt development packages in addition to compile the Qt client.

Does anybody have a recommendation on how to keep my keypools in sync?  I just noticed that when a block is mined it makes a new address that doesn't show up in getaddressesbyaccount "".
Although, I can still do a dumpprivkey on it.

Where can we report feature requests now as the github account is disabled?

mikaelh, would it be possible to add the 5-chains value to the mininginfo rpc call and/or add a separate rpc call for it? Just like for getprimespersec. That would be really handy for measuring performance!

That's already done. It's called (get)chainspermin.

A setsievesize command isn't really possible with the current code. OTOH, setsievepercentage is possible.
