Thanks very much, but i believe its not as simple as that, I dont use my CPU to mine (1090T @ 4.5 ghz under water) as they are useless, I use my 6990.
I believe it goes along the lines of having to boot up the bitcoin program in server mode, then start the gui client, then create a username and password with the solo utilities, then somehow connect the GUI miner to the Bitcoin wallet to download block data so you can solo mine.
I know i can just click generate bitcoins in that respect
Many thanks for the reply however!
ah. i had no idea, from the information in your first post.
ok - you have two program choices where bitcoin is concerned: 'bitcoin' and 'bitcoind'.
they are essentially the same, and you may only run one of them at a time
. they both use the same bitcoin.conf file to configure options. the only difference between them is that bitcoind runs the daemon by default (hence the 'd') and bitcoin doesn't (and must be started with the daemon option to provide that functionality.

if you're solo mining, you need a bitcoin.conf with just two lines: rpcuser=, and rpcpassword=. and then you start your miner using those same credentials. was that what you were asking?
