I shouldn't need 'dummy plugs' to get the other adapter to work, should I?

Maybe you shouldn't need it, but it probably wouldn't hurt either.

I use Catalyst 12.1 with two GPU's and if I don't use a dummy plug I'll have weird problems that the plug seems to resolve.

Well, not just p2pool but any non-pps pool will be making you more money after you've found the block. So proportional, DGM, slush scoring, smpps etc etc all will increase their returns to you as a result of you finding it.
I don't know of any other pool that rewards the finder of the block with an extra subsidy though.

But your not going to get more pay just because it's a higher difficulty share, are you?  You'll get the same pay if it's a 4M diff share or an 8M diff share, right?  I believe that was the original question.

True. It was a little difficult to tell which part he was asking about.

For P2Pool, it only matters if you were shooting for a higher diff share to begin with. Then you get a bigger slice of the reward for your higher diff share, but since you'll be finding less of them, it is still supposed to balance out.

Just getting a high diff share alone won't do it.

So, if you were shooting for a share at 702.33721188 or above, and hit a  2267613.78728177 diff share, your share is credited with the ~702 value... but if you have overridden your mining to look for diff 2000.00000000 shares or above instead, and hit that ~2267613 diff share, then your share is credited with the 2000 value.

Keeping track of that 2267613 is just for e-penis credit Smiley

Con, can you tell us anything about the progress with BFL ASIC support?  Please choose one of the following:

1.  I can't talk about it, I'm under NDA.
2.  I've logged in remotely to their servers and have poked around a little.
3.  I've logged in remotely and have already begun creating code for BFL's ASIC to work with cgminer.
4.  I have no plans to log in remotely to BFL and won't do anything until they send me some real hardware.
5.  I have real hardware in hand and am working on the code.
6.  I won't support BFL ASIC because I won't develop for them for free and they haven't paid me yet.

Thanks for all the hard work on 2.8.7, it rocks!

It seems there is small anomaly with the .config file. If I have multiple pools in the config file AND I'm using the stratum+tcp:// uri AND the stratum+tcp:// pool is not the first line in the config file, then the stratum+tcp:// pool is reported as dead.

If works fine if you are using stratum with http and letting cgminer redirect to the stratum uri - just not if you explicitly call out stratum+tcp.

Sorry if this has already been addressed, but will cgminer support namecoin merged mining with GBT/stratum pools?  Will a local namecoind instance be required for this since work is checked locally for GBT?  Thanks!

As far as the pool supports it, yes, and without local nmcd.
For example, BTCGuild is Stratum and Merged NMC/BTC, so i am going for 2.8.7 after the positive reports here.
Slush0's Proxy stopped working for me, so my 2.7.6 miners have switched to another pool instead, because stratum was buggy under win7.

Thanks - there's some thoughts in the Slush thread near the end that merged mining will die with GBT/Stratum, but DrHaribo of Bitminter says there's no issue.

Quote
14:43 <+DrHaribo> both GBT and Stratum allow you to change the generation transaction
14:43 <+DrHaribo> but the server can tell you to include the merged mining data
14:43 < hardwarehank> ok glad you have a handle on it
14:43 <+DrHaribo> so there is no problem
14:44 <+DrHaribo> but I agree with Slush that the namecoin project seems dead

Can anyone tell me if they are running Linux what combination of Catalyst and SDK they are using?

I cleaned everything off and am using Catalyst 12.8.

When I install SDK 2.5 and compile against it, cgminer (2.7.7, 2.8.5 and 2.8.7) all segfault on startup (also trying to see how to leave the debug symbols intact for gdb so I can be of more help).

If I install the SDK 2.5 manually (so as not to overwrite the OpenCL and the amdocl64 library (I am using 64 bit Debian Squeeze) then cgminer says 'You have SDK 2.6.+ which performs poorly with this kernel (phatk)'. Does everyone use the diablo these days?

Still only getting the one card noticed by cgminer.. any help with that would be much appreciated.

Since April I've been running driver 12.3 on top of SDK 2.6 (both manually installed). Ubuntu 11.10 64bit, AMD 7970.
Cgminer uses poclbm kernel, of course.

I use Catalyst 11.12 and SDK 2.5 on Ubuntu 12.04 (phatk kernel). It took me a long time to figure out how to install both of them properly. Unless you're using 7000 series cards, I'd recommend this combo.

No NDA, no physical hardware, no remote access, not even a protocol document to work from. Nothing has been done yet. Will start once I at least get protocol docs.
