Hello,

This is my first massage on the forum. I started reading about bitcoin a few days ago, the idea is great. I'm also interested in mining. I'm running on Ubuntu 11.04, I have bitcoin software installed, and also installed the latest version of poclbm. It seems that all software is installed right, bitcoin software is working, and I got my first receiving transaction from Bitcoin Faucet.

But when I run "poclbm" to start mining, I get this message:

Code:
20/08/2011 08:53:33, Setting server (xxxxxxx @ xxxx.xxxx.xxx:nnnn)
Exception in thread Thread-1:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/threading.py", line 552, in __bootstrap_inner
    self.run()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/threading.py", line 505, in run
    self.__target(*self.__args, **self.__kwargs)
  File "/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/m0mchil-poclbm-076f85c/BitcoinMiner.py", line 63, in mining_thread
    self.load_kernel()
  File "/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/m0mchil-poclbm-076f85c/BitcoinMiner.py", line 164, in load_kernel
    kernel_file = open('phatk.cl', 'r')
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'phatk.cl'

But then it keeps running, and I get these messages:

Code:
xxxx.xxxx.xxx:nnnn 20/08/2011 08:53:34, LP connected to xxxx.xxxx.xxx:nnnn
xxxx.xxxx.xxx:nnnn 20/08/2011 09:03:33, long poll: IO error

xxxx.xxxx.xxx:nnnn 20/08/2011 09:30:38, LP connected to xxxx.xxxx.xxx:nnnn
xxxx.xxxx.xxx:nnnn 20/08/2011 09:40:37, long poll: IO error           
xxxx.xxxx.xxx:nnnn 20/08/2011 09:40:38, LP connected to xxxx.xxxx.xxx:nnnn

This means that the minner is working I guess... but I really don't know for sure. Is it really working? Can I check that it's working in any way?

Thanks to all, and I'm sorry for the newbie questions...

Transactions can optionally carry transaction fees. Whoever mines the block which ends up containing your transaction will get the fee. The Bitcoin client will sometimes force you to pay a fee when it thinks that no miner will accept your transaction otherwise.

I had the same problem with the latest version of poclbm (from git). Try the latest release version.

OR: try the latest phoenix (that's what I switched over to.)

Did I help you? Tiny Donations always welcome : 15Zk7DoFYJ7hESpZzmix1WLkomTMGW81c2

Thanks! I installed Phoenix, and now I'm seeing real work done. Great! I'll keep reading to understand more.

Thanks again!
