[Guide] FeatherCoin - Start mining!


  • Regular Member

    i found this and it seems awsome almost like GUIminer i use for NVIDIA 9500 gt card now i have not seen it do anything though. Since i am using the GPU i have it as worker .1 will i need to have the CPU be worker .2 ? ALso on the tab " Mining Pool Status “” it has 4 things listed on there but i think they are for litecoin, can this be used for Feathercoin mining? Im just getting worried it is still showing 0, this screen shots taken like 10 minutes after i started it

  • Thankyou for the tutorial!
    It seems very clear on what to do.
    so I did it step by step but I can’t seem to make it work.
    I’m trying the cgminer for GPU mining. (ATI 6770) made an account on d2, made the .bat file with my data in it. but when I click on it. it opens a command prompt for like half a sec and closes again. I can’t figure out where it goes wrong… as I did every step of the tutorial. any suggestions!? 😞

    Update:
    Downloaded AMD APP SDK. as it said in another tread that this is probably the solve for the crash.
    But unfortunately it still does. I managed to make a screenshot of the quick CMD promt and it stated:: cgminer.exe: --scrypt: unrecognized option
    tried different versions of cgminer that didn’t work eighter…

    Update:
    Got it! it seemed to be a problem with the cgminer version and the .batfile that was giving the “unrecognized” message



  • Maybe Pin/Sticky this.

    Looks a good point of reference.

    well I tried this just to see if I can get CPU mining along with gpu miner did not think it would be problem. I did download, extracted and typed in the 4 pieces of info it asked for. Clicked start and has been at " 0 " for like 10 minutes or longer. I only keep getting [2013-12-31 17:06:16] json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds

  • I have a few questions,
    what do you put into the .BAT file you make. the tutorial doesn’t mention.
    Also what do you name the file “???.BAT”


  • Moderators

    It mentions it but could be clearer,

    the cgminer.bat file is just to run the GPU setting 100%, so you can use full power. then cgminer.exe

    e.g.

    cd\cgminer
    setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
    cgminer.exe

    It seems that, with the latest forum issue the post got a bit messed up…
    Will edit now 🙂



  • This is a brilliant guide. I’m gonna sticky it if that’s ok?

    If it’s not, un-sticky it.

    There is some good information in @Sheepson 's guide, which is now out of date, but could be used in a new guide with updated links.

    Sheepson contributed a lot to early FTC mining.
