Okay, here's another N00B lost in the woods.
I've tried to follow the instructions but may have screwed it up somewhere.
And this may be where: I'm using PinguyOS which, if I understand correctly, is basically Ubuntu 11.04 with improvements.
I like it a lot better than the Ubuntu distro but am willing to switch if it proves to be the problem.
I have 2 5770 cards and used SDK 2.1
The good news:
When I enter ./poclbm.py with no options, it reports my CPU
I can check temps, clock and fan speed as well as affect fan speed.
So, all appears to be working.
Not so good news:
I decided to use BTC Guild and Eligius...(no, that's not the bad part)
According to BTC Guild's How to Connect page, my command line should look something like
./poclbm.py -d1 --host=nl.btcguild.com --port=8332 --user=worker_name --pass=XXXX
(they do note that they don't actually require the password)
And I believe Eligius wants something like
./poclbm.py -d1 --host=mining.eligius.st --port=8337 --user=<YourAddress> --pass=x
When I try to execute the command, poclbm gives me errors telling me that --host is not an option.
After using the -h option, I tried --server and got past that to discover that it thinks I want to use the --port, --user and --pass options which I only want to send to the server.
Actually, I don't know if port is for this end or the other.
--version reports 2011.b7
Any guess as to what I've done wrong?
