Hi Guys,
I am opening this thread because I am having issues with DiabloMiner.
When I launch the application I get ERROR: Cannot connect to localhost: Connection refused. How do I solve this?
One more thing.... I read that I have to insert in my bitcoin.conf my user and password... but where do I get them? Do I have to register somewhere or I can just put anything?

My OS is Debian Sid 64bit

Bye and thank you very much.

You must mine at a pool. Where do all this people trying to solo mine come from? Is the mining tutorial aimed at solo mining or something?

Hi nmat,
Could you please tell me where I can find this pool that you are talking about?

Choose one of the pools from here. You can register at http://deepbit.net  for example. Now add your user/pass and the pool URL to the miner. See here for instructions: https://deepbit.net/help.php

Since you seem to be casual mining, don't forget to take a look here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison
Find your GPU card on that list and then input the Mhash/s value here: http://tpbitcalc.appspot.com/

You can now see how many bitcoins you will earn per day (probably not many...)
