I want to mine namecoin, after some posts readings and software operations, I just get messed.

I download the packaged namecoin software, and upzipped it into an folder, I can see 4 files list there:
libeay32.dll
libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll
libstdc++-6.dll
namecoind.exe

And in with the cmd line, I started namecoind.exe first time, and it print out information for bitcoin.conf setting up. Follow some posts, I copied the below four lines into bitcoin.conf:
rpcuser=my_user
rpcpassword=my_pass
rpcport=8336
daemon=1

and start the namecoind.exe again, and it shows bitcoin server starting. Some posts said that we would wait several hours with sync to the internet, yes, I have waited for 16 hours, but here are no further progress anymore.

Now I think here must be something wrong.

So how should I set up the conf file? Use arbitrary username and password is OK? How should I choose the port? what's the daemon meant for? Will it prompt a new cmd window and daemon process for us to input?

http://bitcointalk.org/?topic=3878.0

have a look at this, its a good GUI miner.

basically...

1.Download GUI-Miner
2.Register at one of the mining pools
3.Make sure you create a worker with the pool in your account
4.setup the gui-miner with the details of the worker
5.mine
5.profit!!

Thanks for your kindly help, Seraphim401.
I want to mine with your mining pool, with bitcoin-miner, how should the cmd line be?

It's not my mining pool  Grin.
Just use Guiminer and choose:

Server:Other
Host:Whatever the pool specifies
Port:Whatever the pool specifies
Username/Password:the one you created in the pool

My favorate NMC-pools:

The namecoind.exe runs as a daemon.
If you're running windows open another cmd window and navigate back to the namecoin folder.
Than type 'namecoind getinfo' if your conf file is setup right you should see it spit out your address,balance, block count, etc.

As far as mining is concerened it's the 'same' as bitcoin. You just need to get you payout address (which may be a bit trickier)

To get a payout address from namecoind, just open another command prompt and type:
Code:
namecoind getaccountaddress ""

This will give you the address of the default account.
You can ask namecoind for another address by issuing the following command:
Code:
namecoind getnewaddress

If you want to see how many blocks are downloaded, just type:
Code:
namecoind getblockcount


If you like to get some more info than just the block count, maybe you can try:
Code:
namecoind getinfo

If you want to check the complete list of commands type:
Code:
namecoind help

With this you should be able to get started...
