SSD installed.

Just under 30 seconds to write the blockchain to disk.
It was just under 45 seconds on the same machine with a HDD.



And even faster if you have ramfs !

ramfs is a volatile non-persistent virtual disk in RAM.

hey i started trying to mine monero today .... i think something is wrong with my miner
i tried ALL the ports still give me same results with the error on low diff shares
im using AMD 7790 with windows 7 64x


Just for info, but I think you will get a faster response on IRC. Just use this link: http://webchat.freenode.net/ , set your nickname and set the channel to monero. If you are in the channel, just state your question and most of the time someone will help you immediately.

Privacy matters, use Monero - A true untraceable cryptocurrency

Don't worry, I will open a new thread (and link to it here) with results on installing a SSD in a machine and the change in time required to write the blockchain to said SSD, in comparison to writing to a magnetic HDD, all other factors being unchanged.

It's called science.

If you are testing Monero on actual configurations go ahead and post it here. To see the effect I'm describing -- where disk speed stops mattering to a large extent if you have enough RAM (and eventually, at all) -- you will have to include a range of RAM sizes from 4-8 GB and perhaps somewhat higher on Linux.

Honestly, anything below 8GB RAM is so 90th...


certainly for us, but 4GB is the most common in the mainstream market.
and IMO, it's not a problem because there is at least two solutions: new wallet with db (in the future) and mymonero.com (right now)

At least one more is the current node with ssd.  David reported that worked acceptably well with 4gb.

thanks smooth!

i'm up and running.. nice to see more p2p nodes, very encouraging sign...

You know you are right. There do seem to be more nodes. At least more connected to my nodes. I'm not sure what is the reason but yes a good sign.

@liteon,

I don't think W0lf's cpuminer cares much for AMD cards  Smiley
Don't know if Kahir is still looking for help or not, I responded on IRC but it appears that he dropped shortly after asking around for help.

Does not work if I type russian words in path to .keys file. lightWallet automatically closed and then "don't see" .keys file. It's bad. I will not use.

I've just found one article mentioning Monero, good news is its being mined all around the place:

Quote
There are “mining” machines scattered all around the place, all dedicated to producing Monero, a cryptocurrency based on the CryptoNote protocol rather than Bitcoin’s source code. Asked why Monero, Heartline replied: “It’s just where the money is right now.”

http://www.straight.com/life/777136/decentral-vancouver-incubates-bitcoin-community

Thanks, nice found. They know how to keep their place warm for free!

Monero's privacy and therefore fungibility are MUCH stronger than Bitcoin's. 
This makes Monero a better candidate to deserve the term "digital cash".

Yea! Example - C:\Гpeбaныe пoляки\wallet.bin.keys. lightWallet does not work with this path. Sorry for russian words in post, it's required now.

Thanks for the feedback. It currently uses python 2.7, which afaik doesn't handle unicode strings by default, which I think is what this would fall under. I will see if I can correct this before I make the next release. I think one thing I may have forgotten to mention in the README.md is at the moment it automatically selects English as your seed language when you generate a wallet, as well; that is another thing I will change before another release.

Running 8-8-6 on OSX 10.9.5 and just downloaded the latest blockchain.bin.  All files were installed to "downloads".  Having issues running bitmonerod from a terminal using blockchain.bin download.  Just keeps trying to synchronize the entire block chain from scratch.  Any advice?  Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure about mac, but since it's unixy, I'd guess you should put the blockchain.bin file into the .bitmonero folder, which would be a hidden folder in your home directory, at least that's where your default data directory is on linux.

Alternatively, you can launch the daemon with the --data-dir flag and specify where you want to store the blockchain (and where it should look for it).

Yes, put it in .bitmonerod in your home directory.

I finally moved the majority of my coins off of Polo and into my wallets.  I am now less of an idiot. Tongue

I then sent some coins to a MyMonero account that I am giving as a gift to somebody.  I sent them the story and info via snail mail.

The most sane thing to do. I've settled up a VirtualBox Win64 machine just for that. After MtGox-ed and Vircurex-ed (twice) I am very sensitive with the money/coins I have into the exchanges. Undecided

Chaos could be a form of intelligence we cannot yet understand its complexity.

Wallet working very well. Thank you very much, jwinterm, good work! Smiley Syncing very fast, change existing wallets, import it in lightWallet very easy! Very important - use only 1.3 Gb of RAM, none 4 Gb!
But  Wink what's the red rounds when right click on the wallet))
