tested on a dual quad intel and im getting about 18Mhash/s Smiley

rock on !

I get 16 Mhash/sec on a single quad core.  So what are you doing wrong?

i just tested this on 1 core and i get 95-100 mhash but dont scale on all 4 core lol
O_O  What code are you using to get 95-100 mhash/sec on a single core?!  I want!  I want!

think you need to use the switch "-g no" to avoid using gpu.

The following patch will improve SSE2 performance slightly by eliminating one instruction. I recently submitted the same patch for cpuminer.

I imagine something similar could be done for the x86 asm, though I haven't tried it yet.

i probably didn't set affinity correctly... although now im playing a bit with ubuntu and doing similar tests

ok, i've tried opensuse 11, now ubuntu natty, i've played with amazon aws and i'm struggling

im a windows noob cos no matter what i try, i just can't get the little bloody penguin to play ball.

if its not compiling, its making, if its not making its due to some sub package not being installed.

sigh.. i lost count of how many virtual instances of linux i've run up to install bitcoin and then a miner of one description or another.
i can get bitcoin to work but not miner, i can sometimes get the miner compiled and installed but it dosn't run.

is there someone kind person out there who has a step 1 through 10 list of what to do on a specific vanilla distro?

each time i run up ubuntu for example, i fully update everything using adpt

I'm running bitcoin-miner on Ubuntu without problems, on 3 machines.
I just followed the steps above.
You can PM me for step by step help if you like rather than cluttering up here with back-and-forth.
Sometimes the error msgs make sense to a programmer and I happen to be one...

great Smiley i'll set up a fresh install tonight and run through the steps above and pm you the error msg's... they'd make sense to you more than me as im a windows weenie lol

Tried for quite a while to run this on Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit.

I eventually got it to compile by editing the asm files and removing the IF statements mentioned on pages 10 and 11 of this thread. However, it seg faults after compiling. I think this is due to needing 32-bit libraries, I found the guide earlier in this thread by mathx, but I couldn't quite get it working. Ah well, since CPU mining is pretty much pointless I'm gonna give up and stick to gpu mining Smiley

EDIT/UPDATE:

Gave up on 64-bit.. if you're gonna run it with 32-bit libraries then I don't think you'll get a speed increase anyway!

I finally got it running on my 10.04 32 bit system. Basically I downloaded a 32-bit 11.04 liveCD, booted it up. Installed the required libraries and downloaded the source code, this compiled fine. Then I just copied the binary over to my other system - all works fine.

I think this is probably the most simple way of doing it if you are desperate to stick to Ubuntu 10.04 and/or avoid installing gcc-4.5 Smiley

Anyway, I'm now getting ~13-14 MH/s from my Q9550.. not exactly huge, but I'm not paying the power bill Smiley

Don't know if you are actively improving this or not, but would be awesome if you could make it so it auto reconnects, shouldn't be too hard i don't think. Depending, as of yet I'm not sure if it disconnects when the screen saver comes on or the PC goes idle, but if it is ... would be great for a fix Shocked

Love the App, please keep developing it! this is the Only CPU miner that works for me.

Other than having to install the required libraries and JWasm, I had no problems building v0.10 on a 32-bit Ubuntu 10.10 system. Running it on my 64-bit systems was a non-issue with ia32 libraries installed, but building on a 64-bit system took some tweaking.

Comparing the 32-bit Ufasoft bitcoin-miner to the jgarzik minerd using sse2_64, I'm seeing about 10% improvement. On the 32-bit system which did best using the cryptopp algorithm, switching to Ufasoft's miner produced about 30% greater Mh/s. Granted, this is still CPU mining, but the delta is interesting.

Obviously, you'd need the Linux source for the miner.

For a 32-bit Ubuntu 10.04 or later system (gcc 4.4 is default in 10.xx, 4.5 in 11.04), the required 32-bit C++ build libraries are:

Code:
sudo apt-get install libcurl4-gnutls-dev libpcre++0 libpcre++-dev gcc-4.5-base g++-4.5

If preferred in the above command, you can use either the OpenSSL (libcurl4-openssl-dev) or Mozilla NSS (libcurl4-nss-dev) version of libcurl instead of GnuTLS.

For JWasm, I simply extracted the binary to the build directory, made it executable and added the current working directory to the path:

Code:
chmod +x jwasm
PATH=$PATH:./; export PATH

If it isn't the default and you get a compiler version error, to avoid having to change the entire environment from gcc 4.4 to 4.5, rocksalt's method of specifying the compilers in the command with the CC= and CXX= definitions works best:

Code:
sudo CC=gcc-4.5 CXX=g++-4.5 ./configure && sudo make && sudo make install


With 64-bit systems, instead of creating a chroot environment to build 32-bit binaries, you can just add the necessary dev files and make a few tweaks. First, make sure the 32-bit sources are installed:

Code:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs libc6-dev-i386 g++-multilib

This isn't pretty, but it works - in configure, search for JASMFLAGS and add "JASMFLAGS=-elf" immediately after the section shown to make it appear as so:

Code:
if test x$build_cpu = xx86_64 ; then
JASMFLAGS="-DX64=1 -10 -elf64"
else
JASMFLAGS=-elf
fi

JASMFLAGS=-elf

Make sure the compiler is going to generate a 32-bit binary and run configure:

Code:
CFLAGS=-m32 CXXFLAGS=-m32; export CFLAGS CXXFLAGS
./configure

The real sticking point is the curl header file curlbuild.h - it has a fixed defined value that will prevent a 32-bit compile. We can fix that for now by editing it.

WARNING! This isn't going to hose your system, but it might cause issues with further compiling efforts if you don't undo it after building the 32-bit miner.

Code:
sudo sed -i 's/SIZEOF_LONG 8/SIZEOF_LONG 4/g' /usr/include/curl/curlbuild.h
sudo sed -i 's/SIZEOF_CURL_OFF_T 8/SIZEOF_CURL_OFF_T 4/g' /usr/include/curl/curlbuild.h

In order to reverse this action, simply do the following:

Code:
sudo sed -i 's/SIZEOF_LONG 4/SIZEOF_LONG 8/g' /usr/include/curl/curlbuild.h
sudo sed -i 's/SIZEOF_CURL_OFF_T 4/SIZEOF_CURL_OFF_T 8/g' /usr/include/curl/curlbuild.h

If curlbuild.h isn't there, you either don't have libcurl installed or it's somewhere else. Just search for the file and replace the relevant lines.

Now you can compile successfully.

Code:
make && sudo make install


Out of curiosity, I'd like to find out whether there'd be a statistically significant increase with a native 64-bit implementation. Too bad I haven't touched assembly in years...

Was there a post saying .14 was released?  I didn't see one.

Thanks for the comment so that I now know.

What are the differences between .13 and .14?
Thanks,
Sam

Does this miner support the Radeon HD 4670?  I haven't gotten it to work yet.  I there a listing of GPU's that it will support/work with.

Random question:  Is there ever going to be a readme or a --help option implemented to show the available options to set in Ufasoft Miner?  It would be nice to have some way of remembering the options after I use another miner with its own.  Please add a --help or readme?

if you run the exe in cmd prompt it loads up all the help text and doesn't instant close Smiley, after which you can set it to run. for me i just made a shortcut and added the info i use to the target field in properties, double click the shortcut and auto starts it :3

Nice to see some asm here.

I've overlooked some code and maybe there's some little improvement possible,
for example to exchange opcodes like "cmp" with "test",
'cause "test" only sets the flags and is faster in execution than "cmp".
If it's not, i apologize for my comment.

1. CMP only sets Flags.
2. TEST is analog of AND for flags.
