It looks like you're using Linux yes?  If so, here's a simple guide of how to get it working provided by user nonnakip:

It looks like you're using Linux yes?  If so, here's a simple guide of how to get it working provided by user nonnakip:

I spend several hours getting oclvanitygen working with AMD Radeon 7xxx on 64-bit Linux - Ubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 14.04. In the end only the following is needed:

  • Ubuntu drivers
  • vanitygen patch
  • 1 userspace library file from AMD APP SDK v2.7

I created a minimal instruction text file. Maybe this will save someone some hours of searching the internet.

You should add a note to remove *.oclbin, since ppl with problems already have a compiled OpenCL binary and it wont be regenerated unless the file is missing.

First: I'm very sorry for my English! Second: Sorry if I post my question in a wrong place.

I have a Piperwallet and I want to add into it the code to generate "Choco-paper wallets". I meant paperwallets for the chococoin altcoin.

I know that I have to handle the code of the vanitygen's commands to adjust the properly generations of the privkey and pubkey of the chococoin.
I looked for some examples and I understood all of them. But when I try to do the same with the chococoin something goes wrong. 

If I do a Pub/Priv address generation for Dogecoin:

Code:
./vanitygen -X 30 D

and I get valid Pub/Priv addresses:

But if I try to do the same to generate a valid Pub/Priv couple of addresses for the chococoin it fail:

Code:
./vanitygen -X 16 7

Because the privkey of a chococoin address must begging with 8.

What is that I'm doing wrong?

Thank for any help.

The decimal code for an address that starts with 8 is 17, 18 or 19; not 16.

Check these out.

Are the privkey of said coin compressed or normal ones?

I did a check on the source of the generator @ chococoin(.)org and it seems this coin does not follow the vanitygen software.
When using the -X prefix the following settings are made active
Code:
case 'X':
addrtype = atoi(optarg);
privtype = 128 + addrtype;
scriptaddrtype = addrtype;
break;
The address type is set to 15 (0x0F) and the privtype to 143 (0x8F)
The source code has these numbers fixed at 15 (0x0F) and 224 (0xE0)
I added a test section in my code, change the following:


Code:
while ((opt = getopt(argc, argv, "CLvqnrik1eE:P:NTX:F:t:h?f:o:s:")) != -1) {
Add a option for C
The add add the following case with conditions
Code:
----.... snip ....----
case 'C':
addrtype = 15;
privtype = 224;
scriptaddrtype = 224; // I'm not sure what number this must be...
break;
and rebuild the project.

this is the result

Since I don't have a choco-wallet you will need to verify if this private key generates the correct wallet.

Hi all!

vanitygen parameter "-F" in what format pubkey need?

"pubkey" is already the default.  The -F parameter would be used as following:
.exe -F pubkey 1...
.exe -F compressed 1...
.exe -F script 3...

Each bitcoin address is the result of an encoding of a hash the public key.  That public key can be expressed in two ways, uncompressed (equivalent to X and Y coordinates) and compressed (equivalent to X coordinate and a sign, from which the Y coordinate can be derived).
Say you generate '1abc' using both (don't actually use these keys/addresses!):
Uncompressed (default):
Code:
vanitygen.exe -F pubkey 1abc
Difficulty: 4553521
Pattern: 1abc
Address: 1abcCjhme96hnPDe3pDc3Ch1EnEj5Rjv7
Privkey: 5KG6rYdSopgYo1rejJAdPfbS6RgqhtAecg7EA19mJi9P9s2Ftru
The private key for an uncompressed form always starts with a 5.

Code:
vanitygen.exe -F compressed 1abc
Difficulty: 4553521
Pattern: 1abc
Address: 1abcRZRi2Gh4tZHJNbAyVyjSRx8uB67jk
Privkey: L2i2dzuR7CtDTkXQeh2m9jKiBtuxFNTTCHobBb3bySaHhxDFf6WK
The private key for a compressed form starts with a K or an L.

This is generally how wallet clients etc. recognize which form to use, and that's important because of what I mentioned earlier.  Let's say I use the private key 5KG6rY, once with the correct uncompressed public key, and once with an incorrectly assumed compressed public key:
Code:
private: 5KG6rYdSopgYo1rejJAdPfbS6RgqhtAecg7EA19mJi9P9s2Ftru
public key (uncompressed): 04C57E907AEC9BA14D377EA1627672197A87D38A0BB12A390B1504FF9A6A941772D052906B5A5AFB908E096C1C884C0E14096BB47EAC617C99DEDADBC4AE5241F7
hash: 065A9D7AD12CA8C1962FB0E21C4E92DB86BE137E
address: 1abcCjhme96hnPDe3pDc3Ch1EnEj5Rjv7

Code:
private: 5KG6rYdSopgYo1rejJAdPfbS6RgqhtAecg7EA19mJi9P9s2Ftru
public key (compressed): 03C57E907AEC9BA14D377EA1627672197A87D38A0BB12A390B1504FF9A6A941772
hash: D4BEAF01D5E007F63FB28BF262DF1E9E3A68132B
address: 1LPtgbhspbUKVxmntmRSYzUMkpkZiHJH6w

So you can see that if you make an incorrect assumption, you end up with the alternate (non-vanity) address.
( You'd probably be searching quite a while to find a private key that yields a vanity prefix in both uncompressed and compressed, let alone the same vanity prefix Smiley )

As a general rule, you should probably be using "-F compressed", as the blockchain ends up being smaller if everybody used compressed public keys (even if it does get negated by dust, comment spam, tumblers, etc.), but either pubkey or compressed will work.

The "script" one is a parameter you can ignore unless you really want to muck about with BIP13 type transactions Smiley

( Note that the above applies to Bitcoin addresses - if you're generating for an altcoin, the -F parameter may or may not apply depending on that coin's details. )

Good afternoon.
Thank you for an answer.
but I however to the end understood how to use pubkey.
here line with the key over brought by you.

You don't actually specify a public key, it's just the word "pubkey":
Code:
vanitygen64.exe  -F pubkey 1abc

If you are trying to generate a vanity address for somebody else, and they gave you a public key to use for a 'split key' generation (the way the vanity pool websites work, or at least should work), then you actually need to use the -P parameter:

Code:
vanitygen64.exe -P 04C57E907AEC9BA14D377EA1627672197A87D38A0BB12390B1504FF9A6A941772D052906B5A5AFB908E096C1C884C0E14096BB47EAC617C99DEDADBC4AE5241F7 1abc
Difficulty: 4553521
Pattern: 1abc
Address: 1abcwLjVjwdqf6PeEmNiBhNoARTZSn193
PrivkeyPart: 5JnhiD6kAxkQiWBmJqupkS5qR2PFUwCQWq1DAyqcWj2wkU1HYqz
They would then combine the PrivkeyPart with their PrivkeyPart to get the Private key for the generated vanity address.

do u mean u want someone to "hire" so he makes u the 1bitcoin address? if so just go to this website https://vanitypool.appspot.com/

it uses ur public key to generate ur new address.but keep in mind 1bitcoin or even longer will takes some time to finish.

Use split key, no trust involved. See my signature.

'1bitcoin' isn't that small, but yes.. there were/are actually several services.
serviceURLdistributed?Split Key?additional notes
Vanity Poolhttp://vanitypool.appspot.com/yesyesEasily the most popular.
Vanity Address Market Placehttp://vanityamp.com/yesyesDown for maintenance
Vanity Address Requesthttp://vanitypool.thruhere.net/noyes*Shut down after allegedly being hacked, involving the split-key generation being offered as part of the service.
BitcoinVanityhttps://bitcoinvanity.appspot.com/noyes*Shut down after allegations of swiping users' funds, involving the split-key generation being offered as part of the service.

gadman2https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=270180.0noyesforum user service
devthedevhttps://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=347591noyesforum user service, currently not in operation?

Distributed = It's a service where people can use VanityMiner (part of the vanitygen package) to 'mine' for vanity addresses that other people want, and take a share in the reward that that person has paid the site.  Note that although these are commonly called pools, it's actually a distributed effort with winner-takes-it-all (minus the site's cut), so you don't get a payout based on your contribution even if you didn't find the vanity address.

Split Key = Requires or allows you to send in a Public Key of a Private/Public Key pair in order for the service to generate a vanity address without them being able to spend from that vanity address.  I cannot emphasize enough that you absolutely shouldn't use a service that doesn't offer this, and you shouldn't use a service's self-generated keys, as you can't easily be sure that they don't store the corresponding Private Key themselves (or have their site hacked to do so).

Also note that most of these will cost you some BTC in order to get the vanity address you want, and some may not even bother and simply say that your requested vanity would take too long.  The distributed ones are generally automated, so they don't much care what length you use, as long as you pay Smiley
