tried running the primeminer on the beeeeer thread but it crashed on me. Anyone have it working with any of the jhPrimeminer versions?
it crashed because the server was down .. should work ok now servers back up

in the op
http://www.ppcointalk.org/index.php?topic=485.0 is a .diff file attached to the post.

it will fix the getwork protocol for mumus 7.x ...

The less technically inclined will have to live with pre compiled win binaries (cough me cough) Sad


I'm in the same boat, i can't code.  I tried using the various jhPrimeiners with beeeeer, no luck since they all used getwork.  I'm trying out beer bc apparently it's better for smaller (single cpu) miners. and it's always good to support new pools. xolo's miner seems to work about as fast as ypool's, I''m getting ~1.5xpm/day on my 6-core.  some ppl said they got 3x more mining at beer, do they have jhprimeminer patched with the diff file?  or is it just more stuff that's over my head lol

my latest linux build will work on beeeeer, but it has way more invalid shares than their miners which use getworx.
Im trying to port getworx over to my miner, unsuccessfully so far, because my c++ isnt that great yet!

I've gotten 6.42xpm in four days, but I only mined for short intervals, I'd estimate 12hs per day.

so you're getting way more ~2x more than I am.  are you using any special settings? what cpu do you have?

I7 3820 at 4.3ghz, compiled the primeminer myself using hp10 optimizations posted in mikaelh's linux compilation guide.
Getting 2 chains per day, vs the 1.2 chains per day windows build gave me.
Settings I cannot post them right now since my pc is off and I didn't install ssh to connect via putty yet (lazy lol) That's why I don't mine 24/7 yet :p
I'll post them here for you later today.

is mining in linux any better/faster than windows?  or linux in a vm?

Depends, for me it is...since I compiled the binaries myself and optimized them according to my cpu type/arch.

Stock settings are good, try compiling your own optimized binaries for linux first. Then worry about tuning the miner.
Mikaelh's stock hp10 settings are rock solid, but more focused on findings blocks or 9-10 chains, so it won't be as good for pool mining where smaller chains count.
You can try the ones I'm using, add these at the end of the batch file: -sievesize=1500000 -primes=2000000 -sieveextensions=7 -bits=10 -TargetInitialLength=7 -sievepercentage=5 -chainlength=10

Due to the issues some people have been having with my jsonrpc mod, I have made some changes to my repo.

https://github.com/tandyuk/jhPrimeminer

The master branch is now a plain fork of Rdebourbon's 3.3 for linux.
This can be downloaded using "git clone https://github.com/tandyuk/jhPrimeminer.git"
All the extra headers have been removed, and I have updated the readme and makefiles accordingly.

My json rpc code has been moved to its own branch, and can be downloaded by instead using
"git clone --branch jsonrpc https://github.com/tandyuk/jhPrimeminer.git"

As always, donations are greatfully recieved.

Happy mining Smiley


Hi, i'm not sure if tandyuk follows this thread, but i'd like to suggest a small patch to his code. I had problem when reconnecting after my network went down. The code seems to wait for 30 secs before reconnecting only on the first try, then tries again indefinitely without waiting and thus consumes lots of machine resources needlessly, and never reconnects at all. Adding "Sleep(30*1000)" at the end of the reconnect loop, just as it's done in main() when it first connects, solved it (at least on Mac OSX, will try on windows/cygwin on monday, at work). The patch follows:

Code:
diff --git a/src/primecoinMiner/main.cpp b/src/primecoinMiner/main.cpp
index f91e0ae..c66e314 100644
--- a/src/primecoinMiner/main.cpp
+++ b/src/primecoinMiner/main.cpp
@@ -1442,6 +1442,8 @@
  workData.xptClient = xptClient_connect(&jsonRequestTarget, commandlineInput.numThreads);
  if( workData.xptClient )
  break;
+ std::cout << "Failed to reconnect, retry in 30 seconds" << std::endl;
+ Sleep(1000*30);
  }
  }
  // has the block data changed?

Is there a way to incorporate that into the code?

thanks in advance,
Girino.

I'm missing something here.. so hp10 is the regular primecoin client, primecoin-qt.  I got the newest one, hp11 (win64).  isn't it just for solo mining?  how do you connect to a pool with it?

on another note..

HOLY SHIT in the high performance thread, someone named "blackboy" is using dedicated servers to get ~8% of the total primecoin supply.  500 8-core opterons, a block every 20 mins or so.

That's why we need gpu mining...otherwise xpm price is a victim of corrupt sysadmins and botnets.

Let me guess what happened since then ... he reinvested all he had made to buy more VPS time and has lost everything after the XPM price tanked. Dust to dust.

edit: I found the linux optimization thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=259022.0
it's all still solo mining tho.  are you somehow compiling the beer miner or jhprimeminer with hp10 optimizations?  if so, are there instructions for that?  i would prefer windoze instructions so I won't have to re-do my whole setup

There is some strange:
Having two processors: AMD phenom 2 x6 1090t and AMD FX-8320. Phenom giving for 1/3 more shares (using 5 cores), than FX using 7 cores. Why? FX is so slow?
No overheat. Tested on jhPrimeminer 3.3, 7.1 (with AVX for 8320). Result is the same.

I have read this topic, but I not very good in english and not find answer.

I've posted v3.3 of my miner today.  It can be downloaded from here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sq24hzo993afy9c/l7icP0KiuM

This is mainly a bug fix release. Fixes include:
2/100% primorial decrement overflow
Over aggressive thread watchdog
Chain counters now only show chains which could be valid shares. Also changed to Valid/Total instead of Total/Valid as per many requests.
Fixed a memory leak on new block detection.
Removed original primorial multiplier adjuster that kept changing primorial even after a user chose to disable round sieve adjuster.
BiTwin filter was incorrectly checking CC2 length instead of CC1 for odd length BiTwins.
Fixed GetWork mode (currently disabled on yPool though).
Added back a removed setting that actually helped some CPUs with cache / memory performance.

these all appear to be for 64bit

is there a miner for 32 bit systems?

I have the same question. Now there is also http://www.rpool.net/

Are any of these any better then ypool? Why do people like them so much? Do you really mine more XPM then on ypool?

How I've earned 0.088 BTC for making few forum posts on LetsTalkBitcoin

I would never go back to ypool my XPM per day doubled overnight on beeeer .. Oh one day it tripled!

Over 30 days on ypool I was lucky to get 2-3 XPM a day due to their aggressive weighting system, basicly if you dont hit 9 chains and above your payout is sh*t
So I switched to beeeeer my XPM is now 6-7 XPM a day one lucky day I got 9!

So screw you ypool!
