Feathercoin-qt.exe CRASHING


  • | Tip kujina

    Hi

    I have been having problems with the feathercoin client while using it for solo mining. It crashes (quits) often!

    os: Windows Server 2003

    My feathercoin.conf

    [quote]rpcuser=user
    rpcpassword=pass
    rpcallowip=192.168.0.*
    rpcport=9337
    port=9336
    daemon=1
    server=1[/quote]

    I’ve used [u]litecoin-qt.exe[/u] on the same server and its never crashed.

    Whilst I doubt this will solve the issue of feathercoin-qt crashing whilst mining; I recommend you run feathercoin-qt as your solo mining server and use poolers cpu miner to mine your blocks.

    I’d also recommend setting rpcallowip to be localhost 127.0.0.1
    [code]rpcallowip=127.0.0.1[/code]
    and then running feathercoin-qt as a ‘server’ directly with an argument rather than relying on the conf.
    Just a simple shortcut to feathercoin-qt with ‘-server’ as it’s argument.
    [code]feathercoin-qt.exe -server[/code]
    [code]“X:\FeatherCoin\feathercoin-qt.exe” -server[/code]

    Now all you have to do is point poolers cpu miner to either localhost or LAN IP.

    Thanks for the response! I’m not familiar with poolers cpu miner but its only for cpu’s right? I’m using gpu’s and a combination of reaper and cgminer (have been doing the same with litecoin).

    Same rules and principals apply. Think of feathercoin-qt as your serverhost or ‘pool’. Just point any and all of your miners on your network (or local computer) to the server / ‘pool’. 😉

    Thats what I have been doing, I have a server computer (not mining) that runs the client software, its worked perfectly when mining litecoin with litecoin-qt.exe. So something must be wrong.

    What does daemon= do? I dont have the the feathercoind.exe in my folder but this only if you want to run a non gui version correct?

    Is there a standard rpcport port for feathercoin I see another persons config is using 9332?

    Well from reading here:
    https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Bitcoind#Running
    and a little general knowledge about daemons.
    I’m “guessing” that having the daemon on just means it’ll shove feathercoind into a service. Most likely irrelevant for you and I though.

    And the port can be whatever you want as far as I know, I used this as my .conf when I was solo mining for a little while:
    [code]rpcuser=ShadowEW
    rpcpassword=password
    rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
    rpcport=9332
    daemon=1
    server=1
    gen=0[/code]

    But, I’ve not encountered any stability issues using Windows 8 and feathercoin-qt. x:

    Edit: Unless I’m just skim reading too quickly, the documentation for Feathercoin(-qt) isn’t too helpful either. https://github.com/FeatherCoin/FeatherCoin/tree/master/doc
