Finally put my code up on github.

https://github.com/uncle-bob/quarkcoin-cpuminer

I'm looking for suggestions or ideas. Groestl-Hash seem to be the deal breaker right now. It's taking up as much time as all other 5 hashes combined. Any speed up for Groestl would be a win. Currently the V1 release confuses the compiler slightly less and is a smidgen faster. However I think this code is currently the best option for speeding up beyond that. It's still around twice as fast as the default miner.

Added bonus, almost everything for quark now fits a single function. While it won't fit on a GPU until the code size is reduced and memory is shrunk, it's just yet. Consider this my last update for cpuminer.

I wrote this cause I'm greedy, and so I leave my tipjar.
BTC: 1DaSUSqcr13G4QJYamsecW6yHh95QTT39R
QRK: QQRNpg7aGHcvgEFvXEk1DoCtLydboVsAzf

Is this faster than the other quarkcoin cpuminer?

By a long shot, yes. I get an 85% speedup from using it.


So do you know how to solo mine with that miner?

Yes. I can post a guide when I get home. Smiley

Is it normal that my QRK address doesn't show up in the p2pool payments page?
Been mining (with accepted shares) for a couple of hours but I don't see my address in their payment page nor in the block explorer and no incoming transactions.

I cannot get it to compile. I'm on Ubuntu 13.04 and I get stuck at:

"checking for pthread_create in -lpthread... yes
./configure: line 5534: syntax error near unexpected token `,'
./configure: line 5534: `LIBCURL_CHECK_CONFIG(, 7.15.2, ,'"

Any help would be appreciated.

I had the same error when compiling quark itself it is due to curl not being properly installed

I'm surprised I didn't find this post. I had libcurl-dev installed, but it wasn't working. This has fixed it. Is there a guide anywhere to build Windows binaries? The readme isn't helpful at all.

hold on a min, are people saying the uncle bob miner is  85% faster than the http://stonefoz.myfastmail.com/cpuminer-quark.zip one?

are there any detailed install instructions for linux or follow the same install guide for the uncle bob one as the stonefoz one?

it's the same, there is a binary posted about 3 pages back that someone was nice enough to make. If you feel adventures the source has been moved to github.
Compared to the original miner though, it is about 85% faster, uses SSE2 along with ASM for two of the rounds.

I can upload a binary as well if there's interest.

That would be great, I would like to see it tested on something not AMD first. There is a "makeprofile.sh" script. It now has enough warnings that I worry it may have issues if not tested. Looks good right now, but the goal is fast, not necessarily good. Anyway, if the middle two lines match anything else the script prints out, at least two hashes where done correctly....


Oh, and there is a new option.
./configure CFLAGS="-msse2 -O3 -DCHEAT"
needs testing but the idea is that it's faster to just try a new nonce that run groestl twice. Anytime that section is found to be needed ran, it just give up. Half of the hashes end up being garbage. But, it now does more than twice the speed, for a net gain. EXPERIMENTAL, need to be ran to see if actually improves payouts as it may be losing shares. Still runs that section when required, but never twice.

cloned the git repo, and got an error message:

Thoughts?

Thanks!

Logging-in as root to do crypto shenanigans?  Grin

Might need to settxfee 0.01 or more based on how many inputs you get on the wallet.

Can anyone share their experience on yield and profitability (relative to BTC) over time ?

Is this even relevant to miners at present ?  With the rapid decease in block reward, it would not seem too prudent to sell at present.

As Coinchoose is at present unable to list Coins with a hash that is not Scrypt or SHA256 , that limits the exposure of the coin.

I think this coin has been one of the most stable in price and hash since i have been watching alt coins. I wouldn't sell any of mine for fiat until the reward has halved a few more times and these are starting to get quite scarce. I have traded some for primes although actually i wish i had not now since prime has sunk since i bought them and this has continued to rise.
