The Diablo miner works pretty well. Strange that my MBP's 330M gets about 1800khps and my MB's 320M gets 5200khps. Any idea what the cheaper one is doing so much better?
Does the rpcminer author provice binaries?
Can the bitcoin.org client act as a miner? I see that the conf file can have username/password added to it.
Thanks again for the help!!
That is strange. I get 7500-7800 khash/sec with the 330M in my MBP. I am running a version I downloaded in early February, but I don't recall using any strange options or having to install anything. I use "DiabloMiner-OSX.sh -u user -p password -o mining.bitcoin.cz -r 8332" with slush's pool.
Yes, you can use the default client as a CPU miner and also add the hashes from the Diablo's miner using the server mode and the conf file as you saw. Just point the "-o" to localhost or to your ip address.
OK, now I'm getting about 7000k like you and figured out why it was low before. If I run the BC CPU app then start Diablo I only get about 2000k. Even if I kill BC Diablo never climbs. I have to reboot and start Diablo and never start the BC client and then it gets 7000k.
Did you find the same thing?
Odd thing is that this isn't a problem on the MB with the 320.
Thanks for the info!
