Hey guys I just bought a 6950 and I'm having trouble getting it started with poclbm. I have tried both ATI stream 2.1 and 2.3. When I hit "start Mining" the bottom bar says:

"[1]                ATI Stream              Starting"

Nothing happens after this. I have tried it with no flags and with "-v -w128".  Here is my console output:

Running command: poclbm.exe --user=censored --pass=censored -o -p 8332 -d0 --verbose -v -w128
Listener for "Default" started
Listener for "Default": Wrong platform or more than one OpenCL platforms found, use --platform to select one of the following
Listener for "Default":
  •    AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing
Listener for "Default": [1]   ATI Stream

After a while it does say "shares: 0 accepted      connected" but it won't actually starting mining.

Any help would be appreciated


Edit: Ive also noticed that during this time my CPU usage spikes from idle to around 60%.

I've got exactly the same problem.  New 6950 (unmodified), brand new Windows 7 install.  OpenCL appears to be working fine, as confirmed by a test of Luxmark.  Gui hangs at "0 accepted".

I initially thought the problem was conflict with other NVidia card, but that seems to be a separate issue.  Interesting symptom is that choosing CPU instead of 'cayman' produces the same result.

But the poclbm-mod.04.20.2011rev2 command line version seems to be working fine at 278Khash/s. Download, edit "sample-start" to have correct login information, and double click.
