Did you install the new GUIMiner in the same place as the old one? "The directory name is invalid" probably means it's looking for phoenix.exe in a folder that doesn't exist. Check the "Ext Path" on the miner and see if it's still correct. If that doesn't work you can also try deleting your Phoenix miner info and creating a new one pointing to the right place.

Prevoius guiminer, apart from phoenix connection problems, ran fine for me.

I downloaded the newest one today (and deleted all files from previous versions), and when I wanted to run it I got the message 'Errors occured: see the logfiel xxx for details'

This is the log file, anyone know what's wrong?

Code:
 File "subprocess.pyo", line 621, in __init__
  File "subprocess.pyo", line 830, in _execute_child

EDIT: just tried back the previous version.... and it doesnt work either!
I'm running a HD 5850 and HD 6850 atm, going back to stock settings doesn't help.
OS: Win 7 Pro 64-bit SP1
mobo: Asus P5Q-E

EDIT_2: all right, managed to run it if I don't click 'ok' on the error message, and after I switch from Phoenix to poclbm
Anyone can help? I'd really like to be able to run phoenix againa, because poclbm is too heavy for my CPU (Q9300@3.25) - 25% load.

Very happy with the performance on my HD 5870 with the latest update.  I can get identical speeds on poclbm (~450 mhash/s) as I can on phoenix's phatk, except poclbm is drastically lighter on the CPU than Phoenix is.  Great work, definitely worth a tip.

How do you get that much (450 mhash/s)? I can only get about 400....

Jumped up from about 290MHash/s to 305MHash/s with my 6870 using the new version..nice 5% extra Smiley Going to try the backup pool option..but little bit nervous about that, since the functionality will be tested when the main pool is off and that time I may be somewhere out of PC.
Does anybody have any experience if it works? Up to now I've read just some "it doesn't work well" posts.

i upgraded to the latest version from a few back (may) and use opencl miner. now my hashrate is much faster ! im getting 20mhs more. thanks. donation made.

same here ... on 5870 went from 369MH to 389MH just by upgrading guiminer package !
Thanks. Sent donation too.
here's a tip - i saw that if i mine on CPU too i get more on the GPU ... a few more MH/s strange but cool...

Ok, thanks, problem fixed, but now I have a different one. :p

My 5850 miner (on phoenix) doesn't seem to be accepting any shares (it shows "0 (0)"), but when I login to slush, I am actually getting some shares accepted - but I also get some rejected.

It looks like this:

2011-07-01 is 25% slower on nvidia in OpenCL.
Same here.

Damn you. I was trying to get that bug off my monitor. :p

I have a small problem since I bought my new HD 6950. When I try to watch any youtube video while mining the computer freezes and I have to restart. Is this normal or is there something wrong with my new card?

Secondly, with the latest guiminer 20110701 the mining speed decreases in my case by 5 Mhash/sec. Lucky I still had the other version.

Can you try inserting the card into another PCI-E slot?

Today I had to switch my HD 5850s (both the same, just put gpu#1 into pci-e slot where gpu#2 was, and gpu#2 - vice versa), because my PC froze 2 mins after starting up. It's working fine for 6h now.

Too few information..Do you monitor the card's temp? CPU and memory clock is default? Underclock the memory(use msi afteburner) to about 320 to 350 mhz(try different values each card is different) to decrease the temp. Then you can try to overclock the gpu to get better MH/s values.
Try few versions of ATI SDK and graphic drivers too.

Is the source code available somewhere? I would love to make it work with bitmon.me, I already made a simple start_miner that runs phoenix and send hashrate to bitmonMe, but to make this work with GUIMiner would be brilliant.

Kind regards

So the summary tab is updating reeeealy slow (at least for me). It refreshing like every minute or so. "Connecting..." also shows up from time to time even though the worker is mining fine/shares going up. Any way to speed up the update rate?

Too few information..Do you monitor the card's temp? CPU and memory clock is default? Underclock the memory(use msi afteburner) to about 320 to 350 mhz(try different values each card is different) to decrease the temp. Then you can try to overclock the gpu to get better MH/s values.
Try few versions of ATI SDK and graphic drivers too.
The temperature is normal, max 65C, but the activity is 98%. I don't plan to overclock at all, I am satisfied with my Mhash/s, and I have a 3 year warranty that I don't want to risk. And my computer works normally, I can use the internet, it has about 12 hours since it started mining and it didn't freeze, but like I said, it freezes in about 1 second when I start any youtube video. The weird thing is that the sound of the video freezes a few seconds later.

Dunnno if it's a bug or not, but if -v (verbose) output is enabled, shares are only showed in the console, but not updated in the stats for the specific miner. It stays as Shares:0 all the time.

Trying to set deepbit as backup, but how to do it, when username contains @? Eg --backup=abc@gmail.com:password@pit.deepbit.net:8332 won't probably work, because it thinks that  "gmail.com:password@pit.deepbit.net:8332" is the whole hostname?

I want to use guiminer for a local pool.  ... bitcoins with guiminer.

Yes you would run the bitcoin client with the -server flag, configure a username/password for that bitcoin client running in server mode (in the bitcoin.conf) and then on guiminer you would choose other, enter the lan ip of your machine with the bitcoin client in server mode, the username and password, and any flags. repeat this on other machines you want to be in your local pool.. aiming them at the lan ip, username, password etc. also consider setting rpcallowip= to the local lan ips  in your bitcoin.conf
 
here is the post that got me going: https://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=10438 (in the FAQ on the original kiv post Wink )

I have a small problem since I bought my new HD 6950. When I try to watch any youtube video while mining the computer freezes and I have to restart. Is this normal or is there something wrong with my new card?


If I'm not wrong, it's OpenCL AMD bug...
Disabling flash hardware acceleration fix the problem, at least for now.
If you play hardware accelerated videos, the clock of the GPU AMD / ATI is lower, 400MHz GPU / 900MHz RAM,
and then also slows down the mining.

I have a serious problem with the latest Guiminer (and all versions below):

When my mining pool is not available the gui is permanently trying to reconnect.

During this operation the cpu usage goes up from <2% to 30-50% and shortly after,

phoenix.exe crashes (I also tried using poclbm, same effect!). This often leads to a full crash of my mining rig in case of a unavailable pool
server.

Can you please address this issue?

THanks alot!

I still get this error since ver 05-21 to 07-01. I can't save. Well, I can, my settings ARE saved, but the asterisk stays in the tabs and I get notifications when exiting about it. Guiminer.exe.log says:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "guiminer.py", line 1648, in save_config
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc1 in position 13: ordinal not in range(128)

I have a feeling that the bug happens because guiminer does not do full unicode parsing (at some point) when it does whatever it does under the Users folder. The unicode character 0xc1 is for Á, which is the letter I have in my windows user account name, and it is exactly character 13 in the directory path of c:\users\(my account name). Also, on my other machine that has a standard ascii username, this does not happen. Win7 x64.

edit: Also, this may have been mentioned before, but why are the passwords blanked out when you can still see them clearly under the console?
