Is there a list of pools which will offer merged-mining at I0Coin block 160K?  Coinotron maybe?  NE1 else?

I am also waiting for one, especially so if you can merge mine all 3, bitcoin, namecoin and i0coin together.

Looks like ixcoin is going to merge mine soon too.  bitparking said they will merge mine.  coinotron, said he would, but also said he would not if there was not interest.  If they don't merge mine, I suppose the pool is going to merge mine anyways and take all the extra coins.

Is there no way to check if any pools are merged mining and keeping the coins for themselves?

If we decide not to implement mm it will be because of instability of mm proxy or other performance related issues. For example existing version of i0coin client has weired tendency to crash our pool every 2-3 days. I don't have time and resources to debug i0coind.exe. If we find that there is too much problems with mm btc + i0c we simply won't introduce it.

Are you running any custom patches? What OS? The i0coind on my linux server running on my pool has never crashed or hung.

Currently I'm using yours previous version. Windows Server 2008. Thought I had similar crashes when I used "original" i0coind version. ( without fixes). Also I redownloaded blockchain. So I see only 2 possible sources of problem pool's wallet and i0coind. I must add that I'm running on the same server ixcoind. It is version compiled on August 31. It has worked without any crashes since then.

Check the value of coinbase transaction.  To merge mine the merged chain's prior block hash needs to be in the coinbase field.

For a PPS pool which provides no block data ... there is no way but then again w/ a PPS pool you are being paid a portion of the reward you are simply being paid a flat fee (pay per work).

To test merge mining I've put up http://mmpool.bitparking.com. This will merge mine btc, nmc and i0c as a PPS pool. You'll need to register a user id to use with your miner, and associate nmc/btc/i0c addresses with that userid. Once you've created a userid you can't change those addresses. You can leave an address blank to not mine that particular chain. Let me know any issues/suggestions. It's pretty basic, I'm in the midst of rewriting my pool software so this is a temporary hack with my old pool software.

Thanks doublec!  When I get home from work, I'll join this.

Do you recommend getting a new address for each chain for this pool?

Namecoin addresses seem to be the toughest to come by.  It might be easier now, but we'll see.

Didn't know if using the same namecoin address that I used for an Eligius pool would cause any issues.

Rock on!

Reusing the same namecoin address should be fine. As long as you have access to funds deposited in that address of course!

The alternative method (which is much easier) is just to use exchange deposit address and send NMC directly to the exchange.  Bitcoinparking (the exchange) changes addresses on each deposit so you can't do that there but BTC-E, Cryptoxchange, (and likely others) use a static deposit address.
