I'm unable to start_mining.

I synchronize the blockchain with bitmonerod, and then I use simplewallet to start_mining, but I get:

In the bitmonerod terminal:

I'm using Ubuntu 13.10, and I've followed the instructions in the OP. The cpu is an old 8 core intel i7 860

Any idea of what I'm doing wrong?


Not sure what the issue is; if you can generate a wallet and sync the chain though, you can start mining in the daemon to your address directly though with the following command:
start_mining <address> <number_of_threads>

Btw i have to add that i am mining this way for a day now and it works just fine. So i dont have to check all my computers every day. Only thing i would like to ask is what happens in a 51% attack if you mine this way? Isnt it like sending coins to the address so epsecially now that the coin is new the attack can be used to double spend or something when mining this way?

Im actually for prolonging the emission period to as long and fair as possible. If this coin is in fact intended to become a viable option with mass adoption in mind, 4 years is just not long enough. I have been mining (Bit)monero from day 2 and wouldnt mind if my stash gets halved (although I wouldnt mind if it just getting halved from here on 10000 blocks in the future either Wink ). Any way, we should discuss first and have a vote for it and we should have it soon because the earlier the easier, the better.

As smooth stated, this is a hard fork change and will be difficult to implement and get consensus on.  But it can still be discussed.

Any change to the emissions schedule is a hard fork, but some are much easier sells than others. While I don't agree that the reverse stock split is "taking coins away" I definitely understand that people will see it that way and it will be hard to accomplish realistically, so we should do something else.



Why dont we cut the reward in half 10k blocks from now so everybody keeps their booty and coins will be distributed more fairly after that? Only 0.1% of all Moneros are in existence at this point anyway, I read. So its hard to call this insta mine by any standards imo.

I updated the info on The CPU Coin List to show the new name.

Why was Monero chosen as the new name?
It is "coin" in Esperanto.
This, plus people did not like bitmonero. And finally, this would be 4-syllables words, to cumbersome (ideal is 2-3 syllables). Oh! And it was not chosen, it was voted (well, that's a sort of choice, but I want to emphasize that it was democratic, although there was not a lot of person on IRC).

Also it is said to be close to the word for money/coin/currency in many other languages.
Many other latin languages. Esperanto has a tendancy to confuse "universal" and "latin-based".

That being said, I confirm it:
French: monnaie
Spanish: dinero

and 4 more threads to follow, so I got a bit upset of the mess I found.
This also show how young and dynamic this it. Consider any scrypt/shacoins out there. In a way, this is very mature/boring/ordinated: everything in one single thread.

So, although I can understand how it can be confusing, I see there an energy I don't see in other bitcoin-based coins (although some are very dynamic but more money-oriented than discovery-oriented).

Monero: the first crytocurrency to bring bank secrecy and net neutrality to the blockchain.HyperStake: pushing the limits of staking.

There is broader commonality among languages than that. For example, Russian is not normally described as Latin-based, yet its terms for money and coin are also similar.

Universal is certainly not true though, you are right about that.

Do we have a giveaway fund for new users? Good idea? Bad idea?

Seems like its really hard for them to get their first coins on their own with mining now given there is no pool yet.

Has anyone successfully gotten the daemon and wallet to compile under Windows? I am trying to compile a more optimized version for higher hash rate (AVX 64 bit) and am stuck in CMake trying to get Boost libraries linked properly:

Are you using compiled boost libraries for msvc11? (aka v2012).

I am giving away a few to new users if they PM me.  However, giveaway threads are technically banned.

"That other coin" is doing a giveaway. I think the threads are only banned if people get paid for posting. If they sign up on a web site or PM, etc. then it is apparently allowed.

Looks like it didn't finish compiling, so the daemon executable is not there yet. Did you follow these steps?

Make sure you have correct dependencies:



On *nix:

Dependencies: GCC 4.7.3 or later, CMake 2.8.6 or later, and Boost 1.53 or later (except 1.54


Sounds like Boost issue.  Maybe you Boost 1.54?

Boost can be a pain to install and include properly in Ubuntu builds earlier than 13.10.

If you run Ubuntu 13.10, the setup steps work perfectly with no need to check dependencies. I'm saying because I spent a couple pointless hours trying to install in 12.04 until I decided to follow to the letter, updated 12.04 > 12.10 > 13.10 and then everything installed smooth and easy following the steps in that post.
