I don't recommend using this option as the default seed should be secure and random enough and if you use this option to use a seed from a static file, someone else with the same seed could generate the private keys for the addresses you create.
Option -s uses a random file as extra input. If you search for the same prefix twice, you don't get the same result.

Are you sure its extra input and not replacing the RNG data that is normally used?

samr7 indicated the following in the initial post:
Quote
Nonetheless, if you feel the default RNG is unable to provide numbers that are sufficiently difficult to guess, vanitygen can be directed to seed the RNG from an external file using the -s option

That line seems to indicate its seeding entirely from the external file and not just using it as additional data.

Yes it definitely adds to the random seed and definitely doesn't set it to some initial value. I've been searching for an easy way to mod it so it would search sequentially so I could get the 51st bit in that 32 BTC challenge thread.



By the way I launched a Vanity Generation Service at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1748422.0
Basically I offer free easy vanity generation and charge for harder to find vanities. So if you have a very slow CPU and want a basic vanity I can find it for you instead.

IF this post is considered spam, I apologize and will remove it.

Just wondering if there is anyway to disable the CPU checking when using GPUs on oclvanitygen.

It seems that any GPUs connected to a 1x PCIe slot run at 50% the speed compared to the main GPU thats connected to the 16x PCIe slot.

Seems like there is a bandwidth bottleneck creating the slowdown.

So I recently spend three hours or so generating a new vanitygen address on my Notebook that run on AMD graphic processing unit. Before it reaches 50% it show something like

Code:
Match idx: 0
CPU hash: [removed]
GPU hash: [removed]
Found delta: [removed] Start delta: [removed]

I Googled for this 'error' and it seem that this only happen when the GPU code do not match with the CPU code, hence not showing us the private key. The vanity address I was trying to generate was 1nTech.

I couldn't find a fix for this problem online - other than using my CPU to search. I followed an advice and generate short vanity address to see if this problem will occur or not, it does not occur and I manage to get the private key - for example 1111.

Anyone have any fix for this?

(I tried upgrading my AMD graphic processing unit but somehow my Windows have 'blinking' issue so I revert the upgrade.)

 A while ago, OGNasty told us about https://lifeboat.com/oclvanitygen which will run with the latest radeon drivers.
Perhaps you could try that version instead.

So, does anyone else have/had an issue where olcvanitygen never finds a matching key, and just continues searching regardless of how easy the request is?

Yes, in regex mode with an invalid "prefix", which is to be expected.

I would recommend cryptoglance as it is free and the lay out is amazing.

https://cryptoglance.org

been using for a while now so if you have any questions pm me Smiley



vanitygen isn't a miner in the sense of mining blocks on the bitcoin network, but rather one that "mines" private keys, until you find one with the prefix you want or you stop it. CryptoGlance AFAIK doesn't support vanitygen, nor does it really need to as people don't make huge farms or even have a dedicated miner for vanitygen, since the need for vanity isn't a lot.

Does anyone know how to get OCLVanitygen to work with 2 r9 290x cards?  I am using the lifeboat version.  Everytime I try to run the .bat file that I created, it just opens, list the specs of the cards and just closes.   I tried to install the old catalyst v. 12.7 software as some suggested earlier in the thread, but it doesn't work at all.  For reference, I have the new crimson software installed.

Any help would be really appreciated.

What arguments are you passing to oclvanitygen? If you want to use multiple cards, you have to pass both device IDs with -D similar to the following:
Code:
oclvanitygen.exe -D 0:0 -D 0:1 1test

Try opening up a command line prompt and running it so you can see the full output of the command. If you are in a recent version of Windows, you can shift + right click in Windows Explorer and select "Open command window here" while in the folder containing oclvanitygen. This will allow you to view the full output and any errors that it may be showing.

I saw someone else having this issue and they mentioned that the following worked:
1. Open "calc_addrs.cl" with text editor.
2. Go to line 180 and change __constant bignum bn_zero; to __constant bignum bn_zero = { 0 };
3. Run with -S option enabled, otherwise it will throw out hashing mismatches instead of privkeys.

Could someone direct me to where exactly this lifeboat vanitygen is? Can I download it from github or am I missing something? Also could you link me to where it's explained what is does/if it's different/why it's better? Googling just keeps coming up with reddit post after reddit post but no real information for me...

I recently transfered 11 inputs from a vanity addy, and it made me realize the transaction gets quite big, which requires higher fees. Using vanity addresses instead of compressed addresses also adds more to the already large number of unconfirmed transactions.

I just found out Lifeboat supports compressed keys, which are 15% faster to find (source: README in this zip) than regular keys! But it's specialized for AMD, and available for Windows only. So I can't use it.
The last version of vanitygen is 4 years old now. It would be very nice to see an update that includes compressed keys. Unfortunately I don't have the skills to chance the source myself. It might be a relatively small change to add compressed keys.
