@Elmojo: you forgot to add at least some of the following arguments, otherwise the header wouldn't show:
-D -T --verbose

Here's a sample of what it should look like:

Yeah, I put in all the args.
It looked just like your example, until it crashed the GPU driver, then it went crazy.
By the time I could get control back, that's the part I could copy/paste.
No, because when you use -T you will not get that output you pasted ...

However, the problem is CUDA related (from the -n output)
nVidia mining, not ATI mining - in case anyone didn't notice

I did, that's why I suggested the ufasoft miner.

Not having ADL support and not needing failover, since he's mining to localhost, there is not much need to use CGMiner, regardless of where the problem lies.
Sam

Hi guys, thanks for staying on this for me.

@Kano:I promise I DID use the -D and -T args. I can make a video if that will help.
I'm updating my GPU drivers to the latest Beta right now, so see if that has any effect.

@Sam: I'm not interested in trying another miner, since I plan to get a good AMD card, and have heard great things about cgminer.
I'll try the new drivers and report back.

I see a bunch of stuff about SDKs flaoting around. Do I need to do anything with that or does that only apply to Linux/AMD/whatever?

That was probably going to be one of the next "suggestions" someone was going to make.  When you get the AMD GPU CGMiner is definitely what you will want to use.

I see a bunch of stuff about SDKs flaoting around. Do I need to do anything with that or does that only apply to Linux/AMD/whatever?

I like using the AMD Catalyst 11.6 which includes the OpenCL SDK 2.4.  That seems to work pretty good for me.  But if you get one of the newer GPU's you may need to get a newer Catalyst version.  Post that question again when you get said GPU and someone will, I'm sure, have a more informed suggestion for you.

Good Luck,
Sam

I have never upgraded SDK, always used original 2.4 from LinuxCoin final, but still have problem with every newly compiled cgminer (those compiled one month ago still works fine)

Hi Con,

in be8ad579 you fixed some missing includes in the modularized logging module. Was this required for Windows or OS/X builds?

I'm asking because I always perform full builds of all potential configuration combinations on my Linux system before I commit and never saw a problem with that missing include. Do you have some automated build scripts to check commits for regressions and QA? I'd like to ensure that my future modifications do not break anything before I issue a pull request.

Thanks,
Zefir

That applies to mining ...

Again, I have no idea about nVidia and CUDA but I even typed your google search for you and found this page:
http://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads

No idea if you need something else to mine, but no doubt the fact that your NON-ATI miner doesn't work at all probably means you are missing something to make it work ... and at a wild guess it may be that? (I don't know)

Thanks for doing that search for me, I don't think I'd have ever thought to search for that particular string.
I'd downloading the GPU compuing SDK and the CUDA toolkit. They're massive downloads, about a gig between the 2.
It seems odd to me that we'd need development tools to run miners, but I guess I'll add that to the list of things I don't understand about mining! lol

It seems to me that if I were going to mine with an NVida card with the CUDA stuff already installed I would use a mining program that was built for that purpose, until I got a my AMD GPU that is.

Sam

I agree completely, is there one?
I have guiminer, but can't find a way to get it working with P2Pool, and I think that's the right pool for the future of BTC.
If you know of a more appropriate CUDA miner, I'd love to hear about it!

Your making me look like I'm plugging someone else miner on the CGMiner list.  I'm really not trying to do that!!!!  I'm just trying to get you mining.  I don't know if it will work for you but it's worth a shot. Smiley

I read through the  the Ufssoft thread, but there doesn't seem to be any lilnks to the 0.27 version for windows, only 0.25.
I'll give it a shot.
Don't feel like you're directing me away from cgminer. I'll be back on it as soon as I get my AMD card! Wink
I tried the CUDA SDK files, they made to difference. cgminer still crashes the GPU driver upon launch.

Yeah, I did. There appears to be an error on the project page.
It shows info for version 0.25, but when you download and run it, it's actually 0.27.

Thanks to everyone for the tips and help.
I'm up and running on P2Pool with Ufaminer right now.
I'm hashing faster than ever (~150Mh/s) and no stales so far. Smiley
I'll be back to cgminer as soon as I get my grubby mitts on a decent AMD card.

rpcminer-cuda is the only CUDA miner, I think.
But rpcminer doesn't support longpolling or any other advanced features.
OpenCL miners are a little bit slower.

cgminer does it - but it seems no one who uses it knows what is required to install to get it working Tongue

I have a question regarding the SDKs..

For HD5xxx users the SDK 2.1 is the fastest and I would like to use it.
Does it already contain all the functions we need for CGMINER, supporting GPUClock, Memory and Fan settings?
Is this related to SDK or driver version?

Driver has those functions. 11.6 or greater driver. SDK 2.1 should be fine.
