Luke just go away already. I already told you I'm outta here, so dunno why you're still whining.
THIS!
Shh! Let us longer speak of He-who-shall-not-be-named.

Quick question: Luke-Jr just undone changes I made in the P2Pool wiki page, saying:
Quote
cgminer is pretty much deprecated at this point
Why would he say that?
You cut the quote off:
Quote
cgminer is pretty much deprecated at this point, and the commands added here don't even work with it
So ... you gonna leave that comment there and prove what everyone is saying about you ... or remove it?

I suspect you wont change it Smiley
Or will do the usual word games you play.

Yes most people who understand english understand the meaning of the word 'and' ... though in well written english you don't put a comma before 'and' ...

Now for my comments on the actual issue:
The amusing side about it all is to simply look at the wiki and see what's been done.

Firstly: the funniest part of it is clearly logged as is the case with the wikipedia software anywhere:
https://en.bitcoin.it/w/index.php?title=P2Pool&action=historysubmit&diff=28709&oldid=28414
On 14th July Luke-jr decided to change the web page from mentioning cgminer to only mentioning his cgminer clone.
... rather than adding his miner to the page. Nothing unexpected there - typical of him.

He typically has this opinion of himself being all important and this is part of the reason why we usually only refer to him as Jesus in the #cgminer thread ...
He's very religious and thinks he's god Smiley

Next he changed the page coz he didn't like the fact that p2pool is more decentralised than his pool (which it is) so he hid that statement and made the page now incorrect:
https://en.bitcoin.it/w/index.php?title=P2Pool&action=historysubmit&diff=30018&oldid=28709

Next Hahahafr tried to fix the 14th July change by adding cgminer back in there - which is of course correct - thanks to Hahahafr for noticing that and fixing it
https://en.bitcoin.it/w/index.php?title=P2Pool&action=historysubmit&diff=30982&oldid=30018

As usual though, Luke-jr lies about shit all the time - as here it's even documented - on 19-Sep - Luke-jr rolled back Hahahafr's change - thus putting the p2pool page back to not mentioning cgminer - with the statement as per this discussion
https://en.bitcoin.it/w/index.php?title=P2Pool&action=historysubmit&diff=31023&oldid=30982

As usual, he is also playing word games.
One of Hahahafr's changes used the wrong option - that is no longer necessary - so rather than correcting it (remove "--submit-stales") Jesus-Jr uses that as an excuse to lie about shit like he usually does and undo the change removing cgminer from the p2pool page.

Sigh - having to deal with shit like this should make it clear why things are the way they are.

It's nothing new.

His agenda is some sort of power/control of BTC (which has been going on for a long time) and he believes his religious ideals are reason for him to take control and make things only how he thinks they should be - his belief is that he is righteous.
I make this comment in all seriousness.

Wow. That's very, very dissapointing.

But yes, to be expected from the 2nd coming.

Also Luke, you shouldn't be so embarressed about your picture going up. The acne will clear up and facial hair will kick-in once you're through puberty.

Since the current version of cgminer is apparently pretty stable and this thread is clearly an argument playground right now, I would like to take a moment to correct this.  Perhaps you don't use a comma before and in GB English (and IIRC, you are in Australia, where GB English is presumably what is used), but in US English you do (and I don't know or care where Luke-Jr is, he isn't involved in the above quoted portion of your post).  In US English, I know you do, and the sentence in question (if it were a sentence) appears grammatically sound...  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coordinating_conjunction#Coordinating_conjunctions

Heh, the more things change, the more they stay the same  Roll Eyes Nuff said.

Anyway unfortunately for some (one?), I'm not dead and was not going to abandon cgminer, but family comes first. Things are still bad there but I'm finding my feet again.

I'll look at the stratum protocol at some stage soon.

My current git is 2.7.5n (at the moment - but it keeps going up)

Ill give it a go.

Other possibilities I can think of are:
1) Some problem with your curses library
2) Some default cgminer.conf file setting some unexpected setting
3) Different version of windows
Otherwise - no idea.

Thanks kano...

Okay, I spent all night reading the other thread that started the bounty to get ckolivas working on scrypt support for cgminer. I also read the cgminer readme twice. I learned a lot of stuff, and do not know what the problem could be yet.  

I haven't made too many changes, but I fear it could be that solo mining on secondary computers are glitchy, or there is something awry with my computer.

I will post what my current configuration on my machine is.  I just hope I can revert when I make any changes. I admit, some things in that other thread went over my head.

My everyday work/media computer:

  • GPU (device) 1: AGP  - ATi Radeon HD 46xx - 1 monitor (DVI [#2]) - my "main display"
  • Mainboard: MSI  (MS-7599) - two USB3 channels, but 1 gets disabled with my PCIex16 GUP

There is no cgminer.conf file.

I don't know what other info to provide.

I know I can upgrade the Catalyst to 12.8 but not sure if it doesn't work out, how to get back to 11.12 (which I know works for BTC mining).
But how do I know what SDK I have? What are curses?

To recap my problem... cgMiner is running Solo mining, but from a different computer on the same home network, but it does not "show" the header, and does not update the window. However it DOES hash as confirmed with the pool I try it with by itself.

ckolivas, titiez, if you can read this, what is going on? I would like your input, even if it's "I dunno". Thanks.

EDIT: I upgraded the catalyst from 11.12 to 12.6 and i can now see the "header"

So basically - it sounds like a combo of 1) and 3)
For some reason curses isn't working, and when you disable curses (-T) it works fine.
When curses is enabled (no -T) mining works fine but the screen doesn't display properly.
Pointing directly as some curses problem.

However, since it is mining, if you enable the API, any tool (including miner.php with cgminer) should work fine also.

I have only been on these forums for a short while and interested in bitcoin only a while before that but I am starting to see that too based on his comments on different threads. Nothing is right unless sanctioned by him .. or should that be Him? Cheesy

Hi,

I just want to report that it seems cgminer 2.7.4 and cgminer 2.7.5 have an odd bug when used for GPU mining Litecoin with BAMT 0.5c. You cannot get more than 5-10 khash whatever the GPU is and whatever the settings are.

I've used the 2.6.1 version of cgminer, and everything went fine.

Shutdown signal received.

There is no cgminer.conf file.

I don't know what other info to provide.

I know I can upgrade the Catalyst to 12.8 but not sure if it doesn't work out, how to get back to 11.12 (which I know works for BTC mining).
But how do I know what SDK I have? What are curses?

To recap my problem... cgMiner is running Solo mining, but from a different computer on the same home network, but it does not "show" the header, and does not update the window. However it DOES hash as confirmed with the pool I try it with by itself.

ckolivas, titiez, if you can read this, what is going on? I would like your input, even if it's "I dunno". Thanks.

Since you went to the effort of really trying hard and providing lots of info, I will try my best to decipher what your problem may be. Fortunately it's a little bit more than "dunno" but not certain.

AMD/ATI in their usual wisdom decided that their SDK version number would tell you nothing about what fucking version it actually is. They did the same with the driver and the SDK

You have
Code:
CL Platform 0 version: OpenCL 1.1 AMD-APP (831.4)
Which from memory is the pre-release of SDK 2.6 that came with the december 2011 driver (11.12). 2.6 SDK is the minimum required to do scrypt mining.

"curses" is the software component that gives you the running menu and "header" as you called it, and it's never getting to that stage.

The one thing about your setup that may be the cause of your problem is this:
Code:
1 ATI RV730
I have a suspicion that the scrypt kernel may not even run on that particular hardware in any form with the settings you are choosing.

This is what makes me suspicious:
Code:
[2012-09-20 09:25:18] GPU0                | (5s):0.0 (avg):153.3 Kh/s | A:0 R:0 HW:0 U:0.0/m I:12
 [2012-09-20 09:25:18] GPU1                | (5s):0.0 (avg):0.0 Kh/s | A:0 R:0 HW:0 U:0.0/m I:12

You'll see that GPU1 never actually gets going. There's a good chance the code just gets stuck waiting for this device to respond and it never happens, and meanwhile the rest is already underway with GPU0.

I doubt a driver update will do anything for you, but I suggest you try mining with just GPU0 by adding something like
Code:
-d 0 --remove-disabled
(edited was -D 0 but meant to be -d 0)
and see if that gets it going. There's a good chance that GPU1 will be so bad at scrypt mining even if you do get it working that it's not worth it.

I've used the 2.6.1 version of cgminer, and everything went fine.


BAMT has no support for later versions of cgminer and they've officially dropped support for it I believe in the next version.

Primary developer/maintainer for cgminer and ckpool/ckproxy.
Pooled mine at kano.is, solo mine at solo.ckpool.org
