Has anyone tried Catalyst 14 beta? I just upgraded my Ubuntu Linux system to 14.04 and it had been working fine before on Ubuntu Linux 12.10 using older (maybe 12.x) catalyst drivers.

I think it can still generate short ones ok of 4chars ish (has output them but I haven't imported/validated to check), but I'm getting suspicious of it taking too long to generate some slightly longer ones that says a few hours to 50% and yet after multiple attempts with multiple address-searches (using -f and -o options to read from/write to a file), probably around double the quoted time to get 50% chance in total (or well over the 50% time on one run, near it again on another completely restarted run, and several more runs of many minutes on various others), it hasn't output anything. Either I'm really unlucky or the software's not working properly... Can't be sure which yet.

what is the reason that address generation for 1address has bigger difficulty than 1AdReSs ?
afaik vanity gen randomly generates private keys and check if they match pattern we are willing to find?
both patterns have the same number of signs to look for, so what is the reason that it is easier to find pattern with small and capital letters?

It isn't actually related to uppercase vs lowercase.  There's a pretty technical reason for the difficulty differences which has to do with the hash of the public key and how that gets encoded into Base58Check.  Check out this stack exchange post which explains it for the most part:

1address has 8 characters , 1AdReSs has 7 characters, so it takes more difficulty.

Hi,

the vanitygen windows binary hosted at http://www.bitcointrading.com/files/vanitygen-0.17-win.zip is infected with malware!

https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/326f4695a2983b42e61996b904ef6d217cdf26a6968a86d14a7818fec0ad7ac4/analysis/1396505046/

Beware, as more recent versions of the binary could be infected, too.

I didn't find out the purpose of the trojan but I think it runs a mining tool in the background.

Maybe someone is able to do a more detailed analysis to identify infected systems as the trojan comes with rootkit functionality (http://www.yac.mx/en/guides/trojan-horse-guides/20140225-how-to-remove-Trojan/Achet.N.2-through-yac-virus-removal-tool.html).

Cheers!

Thanks for the heads-up.  Probably shouldn't use that, regardless.. it's outdated.

Yep - best to compile from source.

Lol, i guess he didn't notice he typed address wrong.

PM me and I'll create a video tutorial for you.
Check out my Youtube channel here for examples.
I can also do pretty good Photoshop jobs, PM me.

I'd imagine he only typo'd it in his forum post (replacing their actual desired vanity with a generic 'address' one and screwing up on that) Tongue

Vanitygen uses the OpenSSL random number generator.
Is it safe to use Vanitygen after the uncovering of the Heartbleed bug in OpenSSL? Is it affected and/or it has been fixed?

Yes, it's safe - it's not a service or client that deals with TLS HeartBeat at all, OpenSSL is pretty much only used to generate the key pairs.

Note that I don't think it actually stores these key pairs securely in memory (nevermind if you output it to a file, of course) unless you use the 'prompt for password' option, so if you've already got a trojan on your machine and that thing happens to look for (ocl)vanitygen and tries to pilfer things, it would know the keys to your vanity address - but at that point vanitygen's storage methods are probably the least of your worries Smiley  But at least that's unrelated entirely to OpenSSL and the heartbleed bug.

Having trouble with oclvanitygen.

Command I enter: C:\Users\x\xx\Vanity\oclvanitygen.exe -v -i -p 0 -d 0 1slamma

What I receive back:

What am I missing or doing wrong?

Not sure..
Did you build it yourself, or downloaded?
If you downloaded - which one? (if all else fails try all 3 listed earlier)
In a command prompt, if you type 'dir', does 'calc_addrs.cl' show up (I know you say it is, just trying to eliminate some Windows bits)?  If 'yes', try executing from the command prompt (if you haven't been).  Also try executing it as Administrator, just in case you've got some whack permissions going on in your user folder.

Note that this error is very specifically about not being able to open the file for reading, so is unrelated to any hardware issues.

I downloaded from the original post. I didn't know there were updates to the code.
Tried as administrator and received the same error.

Do I need to point to the calc_addrs.cl file somehow?

No - should work 'as is', and 0.22 should definitely be working.

The only time I can get that error to show up, even though the file is in that folder, is if I launch it from a different folder.

e.g. say I'm in c:\Users\ and then enter the command "c:\Users\Me\SomeFolder\oclvanitygen.exe ..."
If I cd over to c:\Users\Me\SomeFolder\ and then enter the command "oclvanitygen.exe ...", all is fine.
So are you sure you're starting it from that folder, or are you starting it from a different folder?

I'm really bad at command line prompts, so I right clicked cmd and run as admin. I then go to the folder with oclvanitygen and drag and drop the exe into the cmd which loads the path for me, then I add the commands after the path and hit enter.

Wow, could anyone tell me how to get my gpu up and working? I've tried uninstalling my drivers, reinstalling 12.10 catalyst drivers, 2.7 amd app ask runtime, and yet when I use oclvanitygen, it still only uses my CPU to mine. Why is that so? The Opencl devices are both 0:... And 0:...

Okay, that's probably (hopefully(!)) the issue then.  In a command prompt, 'cd' over to the appropriate folder, then run from there.
