Primecoin pool mining windows vista
Anyone looking to mine this should have it set up before difficulty hits It may not get there or it may take a long time, but when it hits 11 there should be a bunch of blocks really quick.
Primecoin difficulty is not linear -there will be a higher block frequency from Not sure if I should bother though Worst case scenario, you can check your cpd against the calculator here http: I think it is as good as any other coin, as long as you hit blocks reasonably close to the estimated. I seem to get more blocks than estimated, but lower on 10 chains. I don't know why. Another update to the miner is available.
I purchased licenses to run a 2nd computer with 4 mixed cards 5 days ago. It has more than paid for the upfront cost and has been getting 2 - 3 blocks per day. Dev is making very good improvements in mining hashrate.
He is making improvements and releasing updates every few days, it seems like. Yeah, it's really nice I gotta find a way to run my 3 x cards at once. So what are the cpd now anyway? I haven't checked for better gpu clock and I haven't tuned cpu or ram yet either. There are updated files at the download website. Download and see what you get. Oc gpu core to If the free miner needs cat Try installing 4 or 5 cards and then start installing cat Then shutdown, plug the extra 1 or two cards and boot.
Go to device manager and find the hardware device with a question mark your extra gpus , right click and install them using the driver inf inside the folder where the amd catalyst extracted its contents.
Should be able to recognize at least 5 or 6 cards depending on the Os win 7 5, win 8 6. Well 2 cards run a bit slower than one: D Seems like xpm is the most profitable coin for high end amd cards atm I will look and see if I can figure out the pool and client tonight.
If anyone else gets it going, let me know and I will join in and try it out. I am not going to have time for this tonight, for some reason my wife has plans for me all of this weekend. Did anyone here get a server set up for this? I don't even have an os that will work. I will mess with it a bit. I think a trustworthy pool would be awesome He has integrated madmax's improvements for a doubling of cpd, as long as they are calculated in a similar way.
I will try it out overnight. I am at 21cpd with 3x x. I am trying to compile and figure out the pool, but I don't have time to finish tonight, maybe tomorrow. I am still working on getting the pool running. There are a ton of deps required, that I am still installing.
I will post if I get it figured out. If you are interested in extremal's pool, pm him and he will send it to you. Info in this thread: If you can make one, I'll donate a day of xpm to you, and pay a fee of your choosing. You're using madmax's miner right? I am working on it, maybe i used the wrong version of ubuntu or something. I have been installing dependencies all morning. Will let you know if I figure it out. I now have 2 xs on primecoin right now getting about 6.
Anyone have a rough idea of x power or should I just leave them on something else? At what level would it be best to switch to solo? I run my xs on Extremals pool with madmax's miner. My Other rig with mixed gpus- , x2, run clymore's solo. Madmax's was much lower cpd on the mixed GPU rig, but close on the xs.
On claymores solo I get 6. Right now I only have 9 active connections to the network, how many are you guys running? I googled for some nodes and added those and a seednode but that's all I've connected to so far. I'm lucky to get 8 connection on any wallet on a good day.
Pretty sure that you can mine to a wallet on your LAN. From what I'm seeing here, I'm guessing Primecoin is doing better than Myriad. So, given that I've got 1 machine with 2 and 4 X, and 2 machines with 2 each, what is the best way for me to mine primecoin? All computers are on the same LAN. With those cards I would run claymore's solo, but keep an eye out, hopefully someone will release a no fee solo miner with decent performance. Is it a percentage, or up front fee?
I guesstimate a profit of 0. It goes right to your wallet, then you wait for confirms. So your blocks are about 7. I got 6 blocks yesterday. Calculator is pretty close. Solo is only good if you get a lot of connections in your wallet, otherwise stick with a pool Did you start this torin? I would be curious to know your status and the income from this. Since I moved my x rig 21cpd to Extremals pool with madmax's miner.
I have earned 4. I will leave them both as is, until tomorrow, but I seem to get more solo. Also, as far as nodes, my rig that is running solo has 12 connections. I think this is more relevant the slower your connection. My main rig usually only has 8, and is usually luckier than average when solo mining. Is anyone else running, extremal's pool? I get latency and was wondering what others get. I just got set up.
Weird thing, my Vista machine started out an error, and reported estimated cpd of over and started getting less. I'm assuming it will eventually level out to 3cpd.
I've got 9 connections now and I've had as many as 11 when downloading the blockchain. But I've got FiOS too.
The profitability calculator said I should get a block every. Did you go with claymore's solo? I take it the primecoin-qt wallet is the official one, or do I need to get a different wallet?
I don't think there is any other XPM wallet other than qt. But I was told that I don't need the wallet to solo? I Must have mis-read. Use official Primecoin wallet with this miner. Of course you can change settings in "primecoin. It is very important to have a lot of connections in Primecoin wallet, otherwise you will have many orphaned blocks.
So if you have only 8 active connections, you need to allow incoming connections, check related topics about it. The answer was no. I can't find that post though: Ahh so then I mis-read. You need a wallet for solo, but not for pool mining. I must have been really tired when I posted that question lol. Correction, I got 2 in the first half hour.
One has just cleared the confirms. The other should be in a few minutes. D Soloing is fun I hear: Thanks, I'm not sure what is going on though.
I've got 2 primecoin windows that show about the same average cpd numbers, and the scrollback only goes back to about the half hour mark. But it took another hour to show up in my wallet for one, and the other hasn't yet. It is still immature, and has about blocks to go for maturity. I guess the other was an orphan. You can see them in the wallet. They should show up right away. Look in the transactions tab. It will show how long until confirmed. Ok, I looked it up in the blockchain explorer, and I still had the block in my scrollback The other client that looked like it had one seem to be having a glitch on it average cpd calculation Mine are only pulling about 3.
Got another block overnight, so about 15 XPM in 8 hours or so. Yeah it's taking forever. I've had a payout of 10 from the hours I was at ypool with 25 more waiting to payout. I'm now doing solo and in less than 24 hours I've earned about 45 xpm, but not a single one is confirmed yet all are immature. I currently have 20 active connections on my prime client but if anyone has a big conf file with a ton of nodes please post it up: Also, overnight for some reason my primecoin-qt lost connection to the network apparently all of my rigs weren't doing anything despite it being on and connected to the network.
Had to force close the qt and re-open before they connected again. It does take a long time to confirm, though block time is up pretty high due to the miner improvements, so around 48 hours is pretty close.
Well, the two blocks are about halfway mature, but no new blocks since last night. I've got 15 connections to the network, so I guess it is just taking its time. I have about 35 cpd total from 2 rigs. I have only picked up one today, but got 5 yesterday.
I've mined 5 blocks so far today with about 35cpd across 2 rigs. I mined a couple yesterday but also was on ypool for multiple hours and had down time for an undermined amount of time over night this morning.
Can you beat that? Well I've mined about 40xpm today with approximately 6. Which amounts to approximately. Pretty impressive if curecoin is giving. Oh, nope, that's with an r9 , 3 r7 s and an i7 It's not directly proportional with scrypt mining, but you get a rough idea Those are my top three picks anyway It's a good idea to diversify risk like that.
Are yo guys selling asap or holding? XPM i assume you are talking about? I'd be selling most of it for now. Wait for a floor and a trend reversal before holding or buying. With the new miners and perf increases, I'd expect a lot of dumping till it's no longer profitable. Seems like a really good choice for windows users I'm mining triple vert atm. This is a more accurate way of calculating solo mining profitability guys: I got home and found that all my computers were down for about 10 hours.
It was a long power outage, at least half an hour, my UPSs didn't keep things up. Still nothing since the first 2 blocks. I checked this morning and I had 15 active connections. If I haven't gotten anything when I get home in 10 hours, I think I may switch to curecoin, or something else.
Even taking into consideration my 10 hours of downtime, I'm looking at over 55 hours running Clyamore's miner with no block with 8 cards. Is it possible I'm doing something wrong?
Solo is alll luck my friend. You need to switch to the new 11ch miner now Google is not enlightening me. Are your stats going up? I got 3 yesterday and 2 so far today. I sold all my xpm made about 60 or so in a couple days. The luck was too annoying. I have or so now. I think I will hold, hoping for a rebound in the price This is what I see: Looks like it is working. I'll let it run until tomorrow, then I'm switching it over to curecoin. So, I've got about 22 XPM. Hopefully my luck will improve a bit.
I have only gotten one today. I suspect that the quickly increasing difficulty and weak price has pushed the profitability down on this. I would be curious if anyone has run the numbers lately. Don't know if it was luck, or what. Got the most blocks in one day, that I have gotten since gpu mining primecoin started.
Too bad the values of some of my chosen alts have gone down so much today. Madmax released the solo mining pool server thing. Been using eXtremal's pool on one rig, pretty cool My connection is a bit poor, running solo doesn't work so well.
Look at the bitcointalk search for primecoin GPU and I should pull up the relevant threads. I have gotten 10 block yesterday and today. Most of them is on my Xs. Using the latest claymore solo miner.
It seems to be good at 11 chains. I got 6 of them. Beeeeer has GPU mining for xpm now. Folding right now lol.
