Hi everyone,

I've just started Bitcoin mining but Im having a problem getting started...

Firstly I'm using a Mac on OS X Lion
I have a bitcoin client setup for managing my bitcoins etc
I have registered with ABC pool
I've downloaded RPCminer and when I open it I get the standard terminal window to enter parameters
However I keep getting the error "Could not retrieve work from RPC server" and "CURL return value = 22"

I assume I'm entering my parameters incorrectly, any help please?!

Thanks!

Unless your Mac has an ATI 5XXX or 6XXX card your going to be disappointed by the mining speed.

You would probably get more attention to your problem if your topic title was more descriptive and not just "HELP"...

Sorry, can't help about your problem, I'm no miner and mac's  ain't my thing Tongue

Command line based mining can be a bit of a bother to perform and for that reason I have not tried. There is a GUI based miner that runs in windows and if im not mistaken there is a windows emulator in Mac OS'. You can try running the GUIminer in that emulator but im not sure if it would be choked back by the OS. As someone else said unless you have a 5xxx or 6xxx card you will likely be disappointed in your mining speed. I have been mining for over a week with a GTS 250 on my downtime and average 36 MHash/s but I will have my 6950 tomorrow which I hope to be mining at least at 350Mhash.

Mostly likely connections are being blocked by a firewall.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

We can't know if you are entering parameters incorrectly if you don't post what command line statements you are using.

Note that you must go into the abcpool control panel and create a worker (a seperate logon) also, the worker username and password is what you must use as your user/pass for the miner software.
