According to the logfile, I'm using the 'beta' 1.0 version (Even though it's the one from the non-beta link on the page). I can't make this thing work for the life of me. One of two things happens.
Yeah, they are both "1.0 beta". I will change this soon.
1. I log in successfully, see briefly 'GPU Device 0 has no space left, wating for confirmation' or something like that (it's not there long enough to read), then the screen goes black, and the computer restarts as if it had a BSOD (And windows considers it one, it makes a minidump).
Hmm, I've never heard of this before. Since it crashes the whole system, I guess there's no crash dump left by Java on your desktop. Can you run other miners ok? Are you using the latest nvidia drivers? I would guess this is a crash in the drivers.
2. The 'Proceed' button on the log in doesn't work. I can click it forever to no avail.
I'm using an AMD Phenom II X4 965 for my CPU and an NVidia GTX 460 as my GPU. The prospect of 100+ MH/s was enticing (I can overclock even higher than the value listed above and still see stability)... but it doesn't look like the client will work.
EDIT: Just noticed this is now popping up whenever I click 'start'
2011.08.26 [15:55] Unable to load settings: java.io.IOException: For input string: "
Sorry, there's a bug in there somewhere that I haven't been able to find yet. On rare occassions some users would get a completely blank login window. I put in additional error checking, which is causing the message you see about being unable to load settings. I guess this could be related to the "proceed" button not reacting. I will look into that. Hopefully I can finally squash this bug.
You could try deleting the BitMinter muffins, then restarting the client and trying again. Java WebStart muffins, on Windows, are located somewhere like:
Muffins are kind of like browser cookies. It's where the BitMinter client stores its settings, like username and password.
As a general note about nvidia and 100+ Mhps: you have to turn off vectors, otherwise there will be a performance hit. And vectors are on by default (I'm going to change that for nvidia GPUs).
EDIT2: It now is claiming my card doesn't support OpenCL... but it certainly does. Both the official page and GPU-Z say it does, at least.
2011.08.26 [15:59] Device drivers for GeForce GTX 460 (#1) does not support OpenCL 1.1. Unable to detect whether the
work group size is optimal.
Perhaps the wording of this message should be changed. What it means is that your nvidia drivers only support OpenCL 1.0, not the OpenCL 1.1 interface. This means BitMinter is unable to detect optimal work group sizes for your GPU and warn you if you use a sub-optimal one. Not really a big deal, so it can just be ignored.
Nvidia had an OpenCL 1.1 driver in beta for over a year, without 1.1 support making it into the regular drivers. But I believe I read somewhere that the latest nvidia drivers have OpenCL 1.1 support, or that the next release will. Can't find where I read that now, though.
