Since 2013 this thread was home for Smelter, the first public GPU miner for (then hot and great) Quark coin. Time passed, Quark almost faded away, open-source miners catched up, OpenCL code of Smelter got published and now old good Smelter for Quark algo is retired. Now I'm returning to this project to make an universal, versatile and hopefully the fastest miner. Currently it's way behind sgminer and friends in area of usability and GPU control. (At the moment of writing it's just ugly, to say the truth)

The current 0.7 version is released with WhirlpoolX kernel and can mine only Vanillacoin.
This version is free, there is no hidden fee, enforced donations or speed reduction. Also there is no solo mining (use Stratum proxy if you really need it) and Linux version (wait, it's going to be release)
Tested only with single 280x, but those cards should work:
   Juniper (6770, 6750, 5750, 5770)
   Pitcairn (7850, 7870, Curacao: 265, 270, 270X)
   Tahiti (7870, 7950, 7970, 280, 280X)
   Hawaii (290, 290X)
   Tonga (285)

[TODO: collect and put here reported hashing speeds; my 280x gets ~540MH/s with overclocking]

 Download zip archive, unpack, edit cmd file with pool address, username and password and launch edited cmd.

To get the best performance first find the best worksize for your GPU by changing '-W 64' in .cmd file to -W 128 or 256, select the best value, lower memclock and start to raise core clock. Keep an eye '5s:' speed, it catches up quickly.

Code:
Program options:
  -? [ --help ]           This help message
  --copyrights            Print libraries copyright message(s)
  -o [ --url ] arg        pool url (ex: -o http://pool:port )
  -u [ --user ] arg       Pool username
  -p [ --pass ] arg       Pool password
  -w [ --worksize ] arg   Worksize
  -g [ --gputhreads ] arg Threads per GPU
  -D [ --debug ]          Enable debug output

There isn't much to be configured. User can play with worksize (64, 128 and 256) and number of threads. To flood the screen with tons of diagnostics use --debug. Before claiming that I violated GPL, take a look at 'smelter --copyrights' output. To exit, use control-C or type any letter and then ENTER.

Of course I gave you bad advice. Good one is way out of your price range.

Wanted to check if NVIDIA cards may be of any use, but I get:
"The procedure entry point clRetinDevice could not be located in the dynamic link library."
Updating the driver...

Edit, updated from 320.00 to 320.86, no change, driver is supposed to support OpenCL 1.1, is it too old?

Answering myself:
Looks like it may be the old nvidia opencl driver that is the problem:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15456987/opencl-could-not-find-clretaindevice-in-dll

It happens when you use the C++ bindings header file with OpenCL 1.2 header. For instance, when you run an application compiled with AMD SDK (OpenCL 1.2) on NVIDIA platform (OpenCL 1.1 only).
As fast and dirty work around, you can just edit the AMD SDK cl.h header and undef "CL_VERSION_1_2" preprocessor symbol. If you are not interested to 1.2 features, it should fix your problem.


Any chance of a quick and dirty fix?

No Sad
I work now on Primecoin miner. With all respect to mtrtl, the release of his reaper-prime was a fiasco. When my miner will be ready (let's hope it will:)), I'm going to release it to the public and get some profit. Apparently, taking preorders or donations is a wrong way, and this Quark miner was created to test waters with profit-splitting scheme (and also give miner host some real-world testing). There is some copy-protection embedded in precompiled kernel and I cannot implement it for NVidia cards without actual hardware in my hands. So no, don't expect NVidia support soon Sad

Would prefer a finished Quark miner with pool support, before getting another new miner...
At 12.5% fee, you should get the cash to buy a mid-range NVIDIA card in no time at all.

Right now it produces almost equal hash rate on my CPU and GPU. I am still doing CPU mining to avoid the royalty. However, as it is just a preview, I think there is still great potential to improve this miner.
I personally like open-source miners, and in this way more people can be involved to improve this miner further. The author can still accept donations and offer early access to donors, like what the author of XPM GPU miner did.
Even though right now the price of Quark is cheap, but I believe it has great potential. The GPU miner will not kill it; rather, it helps promote this coin and discourage botnet miners.

With profit splitting miner I'm getting my reward at the same moment as the owner of hardware. I'd be happy to take preorders/grants/donations in advance, but it's really, really bad idea. Just take a look here:

I think it's fine as long as the fee isn't too big and it's clearly stated and proven in the source code...Problem is, yeah, sharing the source code would make this pointless.

I think the profit sharing scheme makes sense. If the results are good and people like to use it, they naturally pay for it. If you try it a bit and don't like the results, you don't need to pay for it. Payment scales with the software's productivity.

(I'd also like to mention my interest in an Nvidia version.)

Well, Smelter can be audited even without source code. There is no extra network connections, all generated blocks can be seen in the block explorer, wallet debug log can be examined. Good idea would be to run it in restricted environment with empty wallet without any funds.

Right, good call...at least for solo mining it should be easy to monitor it.
I'll give it a shot as soon as I get a proper gpu again mate.

Around 40% of scrypts usage (atleast on my 7950)
[Following data pulled from HWinfo]
Quark: Core 57W Memory 14W Combined 71W
Scrypt: Core 135W Memory 35W Combined 170W

These powers are measured after VRM modules so total card consumption is higher, around 200W in scrypt  and  85W in quark. (Rough approximation with bad multimeter)


Hopefully the miner gets updated to support GCN cards as soon as possible, I'd be more than happy if it would pull 2.5MH/s with 200W power usage, but as performance of 6000-series is great,over 2.5MH/s with 6970, I'm hoping for over 4MH/s when it gets optimized ^^

Good work on the program.  I tried it for a couple hours crunching Quark and scored a block with it getting 1.2MH/s with an XFX 7970.  Looking forward to the improvments and optimizations that will come with future versions.

I think the idea of a percent fee is an excellent idea akin to pool operators.  The 1/8 (12.5%) fee is fine for the first few early versions to make development worthwile but I think something in the 2-4% would be much more reasonable once it is more widely released with a wider user base.

7970 is mining LTC at 700 Kilohash/s - it is about 0.68 LTC/day or 0.0082 BTC/day. 1.2 Mhash/s Quark mining  is about 5000 QRK/day or 0.0051 BTC/day and 12.5% to author. So it is more profitable to mine LTC or FTC, then Quark with GPU.

Am I right?

I wouldn't say it's robbing to get paid for what you do, 12.5% of income is alot but consider this: you wouldn't get any income if he wouldn't have shared his miner, on 6000-series gpus it's highly profitable even with the fee at the moment

That's correct. My trick with groestl hash works well for VLIW5, but not for GCN Sad

I think the idea of a percent fee is an excellent idea akin to pool operators.
Thank you! (And there is no risk of 51% attack from me Smiley)

Obviously, skimming 1/8 is highway robbery.
12.5% of mined Quarks is a lot, but I hope that 12.5% of mined Primecoins will be generous. I'll lower royalty percent in the next Quark kernel.


Of course I gave you bad advice. Good one is way out of your price range.

When can we expect to see a new version?
I haven't been able to mine as the intensity is way too high to be run in background.

I hope to release new version tomorrow. (The kernel was done on August 2nd, the first smelter version was ready on October 15th. You got the idea about the development speed Smiley)

They are in my wallet Smiley I'll lower royalty a bit in the next version.

Of course I gave you bad advice. Good one is way out of your price range.

New version is ready, download it here
Royalty decreased from 12.5% to 10%
Kernel speed improved for ~40%, from 1.04 to 1.47 MH/s on my 6770
New command line options
-w - worksize, can be 32,64,128 or 256
-g - number of GPU threads
-i - intensity, measures as milliseconds to run the kernel. Don't worry, 100 is pretty small value Smiley
Happy mining!

Worse than expected Sad
Quark and Securecoin fall faster than I can boost the kernel, I'll wait and watch exchange rate before putting more work into Quark kernel...

Which flavor of Linux do you use? Actually, smelter is developed on Linux Smiley I must check that nothing GPL'ed gets into the binary and setup VMs for most popular distributions.

I think 10% is a fair cut for a capable gpu miner.
10% is a fair cut for the only gpu miner, a good competing miner will force me to drop the royalty. Or improve the speed Smiley

Simple build miner and link with all static libraries gcc -static (libc, libstdc++, boost, curl, openssl & e.t.c. ) ... 
(Or build two versions static+dynamic linked)

Great update!
Got a 32% boost AND a fluid desktop, awesome  Cheesy

Running at following settings:

I can keep it running at all times with no effect to my work/media experience and that's why I'll keep it running 'till the end of the world Smiley
When I want to play something I just pause the miner with Process Explorer and when I'm finished I'll let it to roll again.

Solo or poolmine with the latest version?
It's solo

E: Tested Intensity's effect to performance, short 60 second rounds, so it's not 100% waterproof, but it shows to me that going over about 20-30 doesn't give a considerable boots: (yeah, it's low resolution data but it tells something)

Really, desktop smoothness took more efforts than kernel tweaks, but it well worth it

Most probably your GPU is not supported. Sorry, no efforts were put into UI, error diagnostics and such things. Well, that's preview and I hope to improve my miner in the future.

Oops, there is a problem. Seems that Hemlock (59xx) support is missing from my ATI SDK. If you mine any other coins with 5970 with cgminer or reaper, what are the names of .bin files in miner directory? If they are named Cypress_something.bin there is a hope to resolve the issue without too much efforts.

The code went through massive refactoring (if everything is OK, nobody will notice Smiley), no kernel updates, statically linked linux x64 binary added, new command line switch --debug for troubleshooting.

Guess what will happen if I release all the code under BSD/MIT license? The end of free miners era, that's what - every kernel author will wrap their cl code into my monetization framework. Now this scenarion is prevented by GPL, it protects cgminer and reaper from such hijacking.
Regarding Quark mining kernel - it eventually be released, but give me some time to roll out new miner for another coin Smiley

So my GPU's are mining at 5.2 Mh/s. How often should I find a block at that rate on average?
Let's see, Quark difficulty is 128, one 1-diff share gets 2^24 hashes, so on average it should take 128*16777216/5200000 = 413 seconds to find a block.

any news on the fixed miner version for ATI 5970?
Run new version with --debug, it will produce a lot of debugging garbage messages, I hope there will be some hints to solve this problem.

Royalty is 1/10, shouldnt it be 1/8?
I reduced my royalty, 10% is lesser than 12.5%

This are the results of the debug for my 5970
Thank you, I'll take a look at it. Something is wrong with OpenCL or with a way I use it Smiley

Of course I gave you bad advice. Good one is way out of your price range.

Another usage update for shits n giggles:

I have been using Version2 (not the latest update) for a while now and it seems to run as long as I want without issues on system#1 (Windows7 64 4x MSI 7950s total 5.9Mhash/s) and system #2 (Windows7 64 2x PowerColour 7970 + 1x PowerColour 6970 Total 4.7MHash/s) but tends to freeze up within 30minutes on system #3 (Windows8 64 1x XFX 7970 1.7MHash/s).  Not sure why it isn't happy on system#3.

Or he could just stop being greedy and release a modified version of cgminer like YaCoin does so you can compile it yourself.
Guess what will happen if I release all the code under BSD/MIT license? The end of free miners era, that's what - every kernel author will wrap their cl code into my monetization framework. Now this scenarion is prevented by GPL, it protects cgminer and reaper from such hijacking.
Regarding Quark mining kernel - it eventually be released, but give me some time to roll out new miner for another coin Smiley

So my GPU's are mining at 5.2 Mh/s. How often should I find a block at that rate on average?
Let's see, Quark difficulty is 128, one 1-diff share gets 2^24 hashes, so on average it should take 128*16777216/5200000 = 413 seconds to find a block.

any news on the fixed miner version for ATI 5970?
Run new version with --debug, it will produce a lot of debugging garbage messages, I hope there will be some hints to solve this problem.

The end of free miners era ? ahaahahahaa

Miner seems to be gpu-clock limited atm. I've been hitting 1.4Mh/s with a 7950 set at 1000/1250. Intensity of 100 (or thereabouts).

Seems the same error as with 5970, a crash inside clBuildProgram(). I'm looking into it.
Code:
logDbg << "Building from binary " << strBinaryFilename << endl;
try
{
WRAPOPENCL::clBuildProgram(program, 1, &paramCreate.device, NULL, NULL, NULL );
logDbg << "Building from binary done: " << strBinaryFilename << endl;
return program;
}
catch(const SMError &err)
{
logErr << "clBuildProgram call failed, error:" << err.what() << endl;
logErr << "Build log:" << endl << SMCL::GetBuildLog(program, paramCreate.device) << endl;
}

Not with current Quark price, it's too low Sad

After my last post I am now tending to get eventual freezes on any system with a 7970 in it anywhere from 30 minutes to 8 hours after start.  The 7950s run for days with no issues.

One thing I like about Smelter is that is is obvously much less stressing on teh video cards than running Scrypt miners.  They stay 50-60oC with no additional fans blowing on them.  For me this is great as it is quiter and cooler and my wife doesn't freak out having them running overnight.  So I can scrypt in the day and smelt at night...

Scrypt and smelt! Cheesy

Can you help me out with settings for 7970s? I couldn't get it to run, do I need any extra dependencies or libraries for win 8?

I have not had to do anything extra to get it running on the 7970s but as I mentioned it does seem prone to freezing after some time on any of my systems that have 1 or more 7970s on them.  The only optional flag commands I use are -g 2.

I don't know if it is the XFX vs PowerColour or Windows8 vs Windows7 but the system I have the most trouble with is Windows8 with a single XFX 7970.  Smelter freezes a lot on it but it always starts up fine.  If I start it running before going to work this system will have always frozen at some point before getting back home.  The Windows7 PowerColour system can usually go 8hrs+ but the few times I have tried to let it run 24hrs/day it will freeze at some point.

What brand of 7970 do you have out of interest?

A friend has two msi 7970 ref pcb, older revisions. 925/1375 stock clocks and driver 13.4 with win 8 64.
I can't get it to start and mine. Maybe my conf is wrong?
Can you post your quarkcoin conf and the smelter cmd?
Thanks! I'll tip ya :p

Hi. When to expect the development of miner? With the growth of the received many users, solo mining there will be no result. Need a miner, working with the pool.

That's kind of sucks. This can be adapted for a pool, if someone wanted to take that challenge on.

I finally got rid from the last pieces of GPL'ed code in my own miner and can now release it to the public. This miner is not free, a royalty of 1/8 (12.5%) is deducted from every mined block. (Coinbase transaction have 2 outputs, so I get my fee at exactly the same moment you'll get your coins).

Download link:https://mega.co.nz/#!QMMEFBYY!AgH4OGrKaRHkRjiVfVXXzxBHbTIlgdD5o3ak2VFuU78

Edit quarkcoin.conf (or Offering.conf, or securecoin.conf) file of your wallet to enable solo-mining, put your own username and password there:
listen=1
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
rpcport=8772
server=1

Edit sm.cmd from downloaded archive, put your own username, password and wallet address there:
smelter -o http://127.0.0.1:8772 -u username -p password -a QNiGvoYctyMwzV1ZjNbjhEoKdQVzFKsmVw

This is pre-alpha software, expect all kinds of bugs to be found, don't hesitate to report it here!
NVidia and old/rare AMD cards are not supported. Please, give me some time to iron out bugs Smiley

Where is this quarkcoin.conf file located exactly? Searching the computer finds nothing. Nothing in the wallet data folder or the folder that launches the wallet executable.

It does not exist by default, you must create it at %appdata%/Quarkcoin/quarkcoin.conf (wallet data folder)

what card gets the best hashes?

Radeon 5000 and 6000 series cards run great. The best single die gpu would be 6970, I think

That's really nice!
It equates to around 73 quarks per day and 14 SRCs at current difficulty. (Minus the 10% royalty)

This seems to work pretty well. My 5850s get about 2.5MH/s each. If the reported hash rate is accurate, then SecureCoin is the most profitable coin to mine with GPUs now. Not sure about the reality yet; I've only found one block, and it has been about 7 hours. With my total of 18MH/s, I should be getting a block about every 2.7 hours. We shall see.

Meant to be 200. The intensity scaling for Smelter has a bigger range than cgminer or guiminer.

Looks like someone beat the OP to the catch on a QRK GPU miner that connects to a pool!

I just found this tonight, and it appears to be very recent. Not sure if I trust it yet, however....

Re: ScarletRose miner - it does show a hash rate of about ~700-800 and has activity but AMD Catalyst shows 0% GPU activity whilst it's running AND the hashrate on my Quark CPU miner seems to more than halve.

No other GPUs, on board or otherwise in this system.

Oh and qcore64.dll was still active in Task Manager after closing the ScarletRose miner.... no thanks.  I wish I could get Smelter working but I still have the "couldn't connect to server" issue.

Re: ScarletRose miner - it does show a hash rate of about ~700-800 and has activity but AMD Catalyst shows 0% GPU activity whilst it's running AND the hashrate on my Quark CPU miner seems to more than halve.

No other GPUs, on board or otherwise in this system.

Oh and qcore64.dll was still active in Task Manager after closing the ScarletRose miner.... no thanks.  I wish I could get Smelter working but I still have the "couldn't connect to server" issue.

yup, exact same here. it's gone

Looks like someone beat the OP to the catch on a QRK GPU miner that connects to a pool!

Download link:  http://rghost.net/50746534

I just found this tonight, and it appears to be very recent. Not sure if I trust it yet, however....
as others have found out too:

SCAM ALERT

1. Libsnd is a email tool.
2. Qminer gets detected as a backdoor
3. You can give it any username/password combo you want, it doesn't care of authenticity
4. Fake stats
  1) No gpu usage at all, cards power consumption same as in idle
  2) qcore uses cpu to mine something, or just to cover it's steps, but the shown khash/s doesn't correlate in any way to either cpu, gpu or integrated gpu speed.
5. Libsnd starts to send data to a russian email server (smtp.yandex.ru)

So if you've run this, on a machine with a wallets, I suggest you to move coins away from your current wallets!
Your coinmine passwords are compromised too, so change them as soon as the site comes back.
Some have fallen to this, atleast the account shown in miner window, if it's legit, has gotten some balance to it :/

Hello,

i downloaded and used the scarletrose-thing around 11:00. I just synced my Quarkcoin Wallet and found a transaction to QXVK7V3vEEMPe8DaVTyqcSbDJ6WKGzcPHS
I just wanted to start with a crypto and now lost my whole balance

Status: 1177 Bestätigungen
Datum: 07.12.2013 11:58
An: QXVK7V3vEEMPe8DaVTyqcSbDJ6WKGzcPHS
Belastung: -17.9964 QRK

I could kick myself Sad I just wanted to trade something around, now my trust and work is useless

SCAM :/

Sorry for you loss  Sad
I just finished analyzing the app' doings and atleast in my crapbox it did the following,
1) Grabbed the dummy wallets, (bitcoin, litecoin, quark)
2) Sent them to russia
3) Started mining with the cpu and sent the shares to a kimisufi server.

It did not create any files or install watchers or keyloggers so you should (I take no responsibility thou) be safe when you delete the files and create a new wallet.

Did more research and the server that it sents the the shares is this: ks211165.kimsufi.com:6010
and when you access you get redirected to http://www.coinmine.pl/yacp/
So he is mining YaCoins...
If he is the miner with highest hashrate in the pool he has a power of three 2600ks in his control.

Here is a capture of the program doing it's dirty work, cought it red handed Smiley

and here it's getting job from pool:

You lost the most in this pulloff :/
So far he has gotten 1,6k quarks of this and who knows how many bitcoins, litecoins and whatever coins...
Block explorer:
http://176.221.46.81/address/QWu8maYVxDAmLG9VUyq7kdRQXLP8jksTNM

[Yeah, this is a fair bit OT but... (Speaking words of wisdom, let it be / Let it be, let it be / Let it be, let it be / Whisper words of wisdom / Let it be)]

E: His bitcoin donation address is empty so far, he hasn't moved anything there yet
E2: Simple googling with that qrk address shows us that he has posted the same shit in some russian forums, good thing is that it didn't catch a flame and burn everyone with no encryption

Although i and others lost something, i am somewhat happy for your posts. Thank you for your Work!

And you are right, its lost. It will be the best to arrange with it and look forward. Luckily deleting is enough, and luckily i did not have any bitcoin or litecoin, what i had was my main Treasure, lol

Keep on being awesome macmac__!

Well from the logs in the pictures above I thought it had corrupted the files
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\tzres.dll
C:\Windows\System32\WSHTCPIP.DLL
So I am hesitant to say just deleting is enough  Cry
moral of the story is lock all your wallets, quarks were the only one that I have much in that wasn't locked and now well doesnt have anything

It's a shame about the ScarletRose scam.  I know we were all looking for something that was (at least for now) too good to be true.  I imagine smolen is probably snickering at us all right now  Wink

A question about smelter, then, specifically worksize.  When I am pool mining with scrypt, I notice that when I raise my worksize the pool server notes a higher share rate even though my hashrate is less than if I lower my worksize.  Is the same true with solo mining for QRK or SRC with smelter? I notice a hashrate drop of 40% when I increase my WS from 128 -> 256, but will this translate to a 40% drop in block discovery rate or does the worksize compensate for that?

I have managed to find 1 block of SRC with smelter, so I am definitely looking forward to future development of this project.  Keep up the good work.

Both files have a "last changed" Date in 2009 and 2010, so there could not have been a modification or am i wrong?

Nope, it doesn't corrupt the files,
it just opens them to access the dll's features.
WSHTCPIP.dll is a WinSock Helper plugin, used in networking.
Tzres.dll is used to manage timezones.

Changing files last modified date back to what it was before is easy.

Is there a specific location I should be saving Smelter and its files to in order to avoid the "couldn't connect to server" issue?  Should it be in with the Quark QT wallet or something?

btw - I didn't get stung by that nasty Quark Stealing fake miner even though I downloaded it. I guess I'd deleted its files before it took the opportunity to steal from my formerly unencrypted wallet.

Smolen is pulling his hair being out of all recent events on altcrypto world Smiley

The best indicator is reported hashrate, adjust your settings for the best hashrate, there is no "compensation" or any other accounting tricks. Quark kernel uses too much registers, so increasing worksize lead to so-called "register spill" and GPU power is wasted on useless memory <-> register file transfers.

The ability to specify which gpu to mine would be great..I use my 5870 for normal activities and my second card for mining.
Already in my TODO list Smiley

Help needed. On the latest verison I see that -I is set to 200 is this a typeo or actualy ment to be 200
Meant to be 200. The intensity scaling for Smelter has a bigger range than cgminer or guiminer.
Intensity value is time for a single clEnqueueNDRangeKernel call in milliseconds. 200 ms is a good value for dedicated mining PC, but you'd lower it to gain better desktop interactivity.

Any idea how to use a pool?
Currently Smelter is for solo mining only, don't expect pool server soon Sad

Downloaded the latest version of smelter, edited the sm file, and get "couldn't connect to server"
Try adding "--debug" option, may be there will be a hint in log messages. Error diagnostics in Smelter is rudimentary, I know Sad

Of course I gave you bad advice. Good one is way out of your price range.

yes, there is no common build available

My sapphire 7950 used to mine around 1,45Mhash/s at 1050/1400 clocks at 1.1v
3570k running at 4,2GHz got to 750khash/s

Mining SRC or QRK is pretty much waste of time considering network speeds and block rewards, if one without botnet wants those, best way would to buy them and mine something more profitable´or usable (like curecoin ^^)

After 2-3 hours miner work, speed suddenly drops to "0". GPU load is also 0%. Helps only restart miner. What could be the problem?

I really want to get this working and I've tried so many times and failed due to the "Cannot connect to server issue". I've decided to delete everything and start again, hopefully someone can tell me where I'm going wrong!

1. Downloaded Smelter 0.3a from http://rghost.net/49940688
2. Found the folder where my Quark QT wallet is installed and extracted the 3 files from the zip into this folder:
  • smd.cmd
  • smelter
  • smelter.exe
3. In the same folder I created quarkcoin.conf, Offering.conf and securecoin.conf and added the following information
Quote
listen=1
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
rpcport=8772
server=1
4. Checked the smd.cmd file to make sure it had the same username/password. I didn't alter this file, even left the original wallet file is as this is just a test.
5. Double clicked smd.cmd.... Smelter opens.... Error: curl_easy_perform() failed: Couldn't connect to server

http://i43.tinypic.com/2d0ynt4.png

HELP! PLEASE! I'm going insane

6. Added --debug to the smd.cmd file and ran again and got the following:

You have your Quark wallet open right?  It has to be running and up to date. Smiley

Also your smd.cmd file shows 8385 as port while your config files shows 8772.  They have to match to connect.

Also your .conf files should be in the respective coins appdata folder not in teh smelter folder.

Hey Smolen,
Thanks for your work on these miners.
I'm not sure how I feel about the 1/10th reward share at this time (as I'm not able to run the miner), but in theory I think its a viable business model.
That being said I have a decent Radeon 4850 and a Nvideo 280 GTX. Not new by any standards but decent ass cards.

Unfortunately I'm getting the errors:
Failed to read source file: ./quark0td/kernel/kernelQuark.cl
SummonProgram failed
ThreadHost::Thread() unexpected exception:clCreateKernel call failed

Any chance of getting this to run on my rigs or is it a lost cause?
I've tried v2 and v3.

Hey Smolen,
Thanks for your work on these miners.
I'm not sure how I feel about the 1/10th reward share at this time (as I'm not able to run the miner), but in theory I think its a viable business model.
That being said I have a decent Radeon 4850 and a Nvideo 280 GTX. Not new by any standards but decent ass cards.

Unfortunately I'm getting the errors:
Failed to read source file: ./quark0td/kernel/kernelQuark.cl
SummonProgram failed
ThreadHost::Thread() unexpected exception:clCreateKernel call failed

Any chance of getting this to run on my rigs or is it a lost cause?
I've tried v2 and v3.
Certain Radeon series don't work. Oldest reported working GPU is a 58xx.

Aww man, I was expecting to be rolling in Quarks now!  Is the effort of this cumulative in some way, ie if I switch it off now will I have lost some progress?

Very hard to get solo Quark or SecureCoin blocks now.  Best use for Smelter on a single GPU now is Cthulu or Frozen and hope one of them gets worth something...hopefully Cthulu.

Thanks Hilux, you rock.  I hope someone creates a QRK pool GPU miner soon though I guess Smolen isn't too motivated as she/he might lose their cut that they skim off at the moment.

I'd never heard of Cthulu or Frozen crypto coins before. I think I'll leave Smelter running on Quark and just hope I'm lucky - just under 2MHs doesn't seem too bad.  How many million (!) QRK could I expect to receive if I found a block?

My 5750s get about 1.38MH/s each; my 5850s get about 2.5MH/s each. (I overclock them.)

All my cards together amount to about 18MH/s, and I find plenty of blocks--about what I should according to the estimates on pools. Of course, there is a huge amount of random variance in solo mining. Some days I find twice as many as I should, other days I find just one.

It is still the most profitable use of these cards, but that may change soon, as the price drops and the difficulty rises.

I'm running a 5830 and get ~1.8Mh/s and have been running it overnight every night for about 5 nights. I found my first block last night and got 14.4QRKS Smiley

I'm thinking that I should try and overclock my card. It's currently at GPU 825MHz Memory 1025MHz running at 65 degrees. I'll have a play around and report back.

You'd get a lot more CPU-mining with a pool. You could then use the GPU to mine litecoin or any other scrypt based crypto.

Ooo I came down this morning to see what Smelter has had two blocks accepted over night. Easily a personal best for me. I saw the Quarkcoin QT wallet system tray note flash up with a transaction but unfortunately it vanished as soon as I moved my mouse. Looking in the transaction history of the wallet shows no transactions though  Angry

I checked my cmd file and the wallet address is correct. I closed and reopened my Quark wallet and it claims to be up to date. Where'd my QRKs go Sad ?

not quite sure what im doing wrong here but it would appear that my cards want to mine at 20GH-70GH for 3 attempts then the miner crashes.

it seems like something is wrong due to getting such high rates!

has anyone discovered this?  (its almost like when you forget to include the --scrypt when mining with cgminer)

any help would be great thank you :-)

The accepted value in Smelter is for blocks solved, not shares accepted.

Law of averages states that you will get x amount of QRK/SRC per day over the long run, when comparing the same hash rate to the pool.

The 1: [Number] refers to the number of blocks that have passed by since you started Smelter.

It most likely unable to send the actual amount because it was designed for Quark and not Particle. So you only get the donation amount and not the full amount

Thank you. Well I've had 3 solved blocks now that have resulted in payments of 14.4, 7.20009 and 7.20.  To be honest I'm wondering whether it's worth it.

6.1k is version1 posted from OP and v2 is 6.5k

It most likely unable to send the actual amount because it was designed for Quark and not Particle. So you only get the donation amount and not the full amount

How to solve the problem

Just my 2 cents.

I wonder if we can get this to work on a pool with ypool.net xptProxy.
Source: https://github.com/jh000/xptProxy

Its used to mine dogecoin and "converts" the protocol into json.
Currently it supports sha-256, scrypt and primecoin algos.
There are no arguments to provide and connects by default on ypool.net port 10034 and rpc port 8332.

I made some changes to the source to allow arguments such as pool port rpcport.

main.cpp(int function, modified)
Code:
int main(int argc, char** argv)
{
printf("\xC9\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xBB\n");
printf("\xBA  xptProxy (v0.2b)                                \xBA\n");
printf("\xBA  contributors: jh                                \xBA\n");
printf("\xBA  local protocols: getwork(8332)+longpoll         \xBA\n");
printf("\xBA  algorithms: scrypt                              \xBA\n");
printf("\xBA  params: xptProxy.exe pool port rpcport          \xBA\n");
printf("\xC8\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xCD\xBC\n");
printf("Launching proxy...\n");

char* poolURL = "ypool.net";
if(argv[1])
{
poolURL = argv[1];
}

proxySettings.poolPort = 10034;
if(argv[2])
{
proxySettings.poolPort = atoi(argv[2]);
}


proxySettings.rpcPort = 8332;
if(argv[3])
{
proxySettings.rpcPort = atoi(argv[3]);
}
// init winsock
WSADATA wsa;
WSAStartup(MAKEWORD(2,2),&wsa);

hostent* hostInfo = gethostbyname(poolURL);
if( hostInfo == NULL )
{
printf("Cannot resolve '%s'. Is it a valid URL?\n", poolURL);
exit(-1);
}
void** ipListPtr = (void**)hostInfo->h_addr_list;
uint32 ip = 0xFFFFFFFF;
if( ipListPtr[0] )
{
ip = *(uint32*)ipListPtr[0];
}
char ipText[32];
sprintf(ipText, "%d.%d.%d.%d", ((ip>>0)&0xFF), ((ip>>8)&0xFF), ((ip>>16)&0xFF), ((ip>>24)&0xFF));
// set default proxy settings (todo: Add config)
proxySettings.poolIP = ipText;
// init xpt proxy stuff
xptProxy_init();
// start json server thread
printf("Starting JSON-RPC server on port %d...\n", proxySettings.rpcPort);
jsonRpcServer_t* jrs = jsonRpc_createServer(proxySettings.rpcPort);
if( jrs == NULL )
{
printf("Failed to open a server on port %d, try again\n", proxySettings.rpcPort);
return -1;
}
CreateThread(NULL, 0, (LPTHREAD_START_ROUTINE)jsonRpc_run, jrs, 0, NULL);
// start processing xpt clients
printf("xptProxy ready to accept connections!\n");
xptProxy_mainloop();
return 0;
}

After the changes it compiles and runs successfully with "xptProxy ypool.net 10034 8332"

I also added all the quark files/algos to the project and they needed no changes at all
Got the files from miner, https://github.com/Neisklar/quarkcoin-cpuminer
Files: blake.c, bmw.c, groestl.c, jh.c, keccak.c, skein.c, the respective sph_headers.h and sph_types.h

The file wich actually exports quark hash and verify functions(quark.c) gives a missing function error

After the quark hashing functions can included without errors i think there are just some minor changes to do at xptProxy itself to actually recognize the algorithm.
A simple search shows:
xptClient.cpp
Code:
else if( xptShareToSubmit->algorithm == ALGORITHM_SHA256 || xptShareToSubmit->algorithm == ALGORITHM_SCRYPT )

xptProxy.cpp
Code:
if( xpc->algorithm == ALGORITHM_SCRYPT )

Not sure if the protocols are the same but maybe some one more skilled can give this a try?

I think something is wrong with the wallet code Smiley Posted response with technical details here, let's hope Particle developers will take a look at it.

Of course I gave you bad advice. Good one is way out of your price range.

If you guys are still looking for a (backup) pool try:

https://qrk.suprnova.cc for Quark

or

https://prt.suprnova.cc for Particle.

I'm testing new stratum/vardiff code there, would really appreciate some more power than few cpu's in there.

If you need a pool for an other coinbase, message me.

Hi all

Are there any details on what cards don't work or do work with settings & performance ?

I'm looking to put a new low profile card into a slim pc that i can dabble with smelter & quark based coins. Seems to be 7750, 6670, 6450 & 5450 low profile cards available mainly 1GB & a 2GB 6450.

p.s. Also if vital info could be edited into the 1st post it would make it a lot easier for everyone to find the latest version, for example, instead of having to read the whole topic looking Wink

I'm trying to mine frozen w/ a 5850, smelter crashes almost immediately. Is this a compatible card?

I am currently trying to mine Offerings with smelter, while I was successful with getting it to work with frozen, I can't seem to find the error here:

offering.conf:
Code:
[...]
listen=1
rpcuser=1
rpcpassword=x
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcport=1928
server=1
[...]

And calling smelter with open wallet (same directory as .conf, of course) and:

Code:
smelter -o http://127.0.0.1:1928 -u 1 -p x -w 64 -g 1 -i 200 -a QQcS8oJyWH2UiTZUN6qBZjYBWXtWFzhC4J

getting the following result:

Code:
Path/to/smelter>smelter -o http://127.0.0.1:1928 -u 1 -p
 x -w 64 -g 1 -i 200 -a QQcS8oJyWH2UiTZUN6qBZjYBWXtWFzhC4J

And so on, resulting in a crash. Did I mess up the config?

i can´t get this miner running with my r9 290. any advices?

error v2:
Code:
smelter v0.2 (c) Smolen
Royalty: 1/10
Failed to read source file: ./quark0td/kernelQuark.cl
SummonProgram failed
clCreateKernel call failed!


error v3:
Code:
smelter v0.3 (c) Smolen
Royalty: 1/10
Failed to read source file: ./quark0td/kernel/kernelQuark.cl
SummonProgram failed
ThreadHost::Thread() unexpected exception:clCreateKernel call failed
Smelter doesn't work with Hawaii (290 or 290x) GPUs yet.

Any idea on when we might get Smelter working on the 290's?
(I will be using my CPU for Quarks and the 290 for LTC until then.)
