Heya pooler, long time. Any chance updating this for stratum? Thanks, bud.

I've been thinking about it lately, but right now I am busy with more urgent projects.
I have just finished adding Stratum support to my pool, and now I am working on the new release of the Litecoin client.

I believe he is very busy atm, working on other projects, one main one, litecoin client.

Install Xcode from the app store, go to preferences and find the tab where you can install commandline tools. Then download and install the latest macports package.

In the terminal run:

sudo port -v selfupdate
sudo port install wget
sudo port install openssl

you should be able to run it then  Smiley

I would love to use the command line miner (minerd) but someone has to tell me how to run it in windows. I have it running on my Linux (Ubuntu) box just fine with Pool-X but I am embarrassed to say I have never done this for Windows. I tried inputting at the command prompt:

"minerd"

"start minerd"

"/minerd"

"start cpu-miner"

"start [entire file name as downloaded""

Wtf is wrong with me? Besides the fact that I am Win-tarded

Err, help!?

Well first you need to navigate to where the Windows binary is, then you execute it with the same arguments you do on linux.

Code:
minerd [arguments]

I dont think I have ever used a Windows (cmd) command line before. I use a Linux terminal all the time and I used to use command lines all the time on my Commodore 64 but I really dont think Ive ever used it in Windows.

I would a total tutorial on how to do that and I doubt anyone is going to take the time to explain it and tell me exactly what I need to type to get it installed and running. I guess I will have to go buy a "CMD for dummies" style book at barnes and Noble next time I am there.

If you're using Windows 7, you press the start-button and there in the search box you type "cmd" and press enter. There you have windows command line. That's a start.

After that:
cd "pathToTheFolder" (enter)

Open the directory where your miner is.

In the directory window of the miner, hold shift, right click in the window, click open command window here.

minerd --url pool-url:port --userpass username.x:password --threads x

x for threads would be the amount of cores or threads you'd like to run. So if you have a quad core, and want to only use three cores, you'd use --threads 3. If you want to use 2, use --threads 2, so on so forth.

Also for windows, you can make a batch file.

Open the directory where your miner is, right click new txt file, hit ctrl-a, rename the file to cpuminer.bat . Click yes, you want to rename the file extension. Once the batch file is made, right click on it and click edit or open with notepad. Insert the following. but with you pool url & port, and your username password and how ever many cores/threads you like to use, replace the x with a number.

minerd --url pool-url:port --userpass username.1:password --threads x

Once the proper info is filled in the batch file, click save and close it.

Double click the batch file, it will start mining, also you may create a shortcut of the batch file to your desktop, by right clicking the batch file, create shortcut to desktop.

Hope it is clear enough to do, if not post back, and will help with what ever problem you're having.

Edit:
Also it is best to use mining proxy along with poolers cpuminer to take advantage of stratum protocol. If you want to do this hollar back, we'll go through the steps for that.

Holy cow, thanks a lot!

I am going to try this shortly and let you know how I make out.

Interestingly enough I had forgot that I took to the forum to complain. So I entered "cpu miner windows command line" into the search bar. I then saw the response to me own whining. Totally forgot that I even asked for help

So, again, thanks. And I will let you know how I make out ASAP. I spent my whole life using windows. Then I migrated over to Linux a few years ago and never looked back. Now Im Win-Tarded, I cant do anything on the OS

Something when wrong with compiled windows version of pool-cpuminer-2.2.3-win64.zip!

Using the current for windows 7 64bit, I earning less than version 2.2.2-win64.

I suggest you double check this and in the meanwhile put download link to pool-cpuminer2.2.2-win62.zip back on!
