[Dev] NeoScrypt GPU Miner - Public Beta Test


  • | Tip daimyo

    Sorry daimyo,

    not any longer. I just aquired a Sapphire HD6870. Just have to wait for delivery. For figuring what is wrong in the CL-kernel that one should be sufficient.

    For the nvidia vs. ATI battle: I do not favour any of the two. Both are evil, not participating on the Linux kernel. But to get OpenCL enabled Intel-HW my funds are too limited. A Xeon Phi would be marvelous, if anyone wants to donate 🙂

    Andre, is that what you mean https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYWzMvlj2RQ 😃

    not participating on the Linux kernel.

    I suspect Valve will help force their hand on this issue.


  • | Tip vehre

    That’s the rather rude opinion of Linus. 🙂


  • | Tip null

    Does anyone want to edit the main post here?

    I have no idea what’s involved to get up and running on the testnet etc so I can’t really write it.

    We need all the links to precompiled and uncompiled versions, all github links and a noobie walkthrough for the precompiled ones.

    We had finish early test, Results in line with expectations.

    I builde a p2pool for neoscrypt , Today It can work normal. It support stratum. 🙂

    cgminer.exe --neoscrypt -I 13 -o stratum+tcp://pool.ftc-c.com:10554 -u Pm9nMjHhgH7stU4qcAZHXS1dHj6bVEGhrx -p x 
    

    I use the lasted version (3.7.4exp), my AMD 7850 card have about 20K/s hashrate.

    Is this only working for pool mining right now? I can get Lizhi command line to work but for some reason can’t get solo mining working on my 560M.

    Not yet tested on my ATI cards. I’ve had no problem with solo config for the CPU miner. I’ve try many different ways with the command line but no

    luck in the past hour or so getting it working for solo. Here are a few things I’ve tried. Maybe someone can see something I’m doing wrong or not adding in. I have a live network -server going plus setup for local host as well, both have worked well with the CPU. This was just for a quick setup then I will tweak it as I go along. Thanks for any input in advance.

    Edit: I was going to setup a account here: http://pool.ftc-c.com/index.php and just mine there for a while,

    but doesn’t seem to be a English version of all the pages.

    Edit2: Worked my way threw the pages and have my 560M working at that pool now.

    Luck I have setup on this type of pool layout many times so it all came back to me what goes where. lol

    Its just for testing anyways.

    cgminer.exe --neoscrypt -o 192.168.1.107:3333 -u phoenixcoinpc -p x
    
    #--neoscrypt -o localhost:9554 -u phoenixcoinpc -p x
    
    #--neoscrypt -o 192.168.1.107:3333 -u Pn18tqfzFNPUcFjJRq1GRYdYDJjKTBNGpq -p x

    If you need an english pool, there are two that work with gpuminer:

    p2pool.neoscrypt.de:10554 located im Germany

    pool20.neoscrypt.de:10554 located in the Netherlands

    Could you extract the gpuminer related log entries in the phoenixcoind log for the solo mining?

    the location of the logfile is ~/.phoenixcoin/debug.log for Linux

    and (I believe)

    %datadir%\phoenixcoin\debug.log for windows.


  • | Tip Alpha Wolf

    At the moment I’m working in W7 64bit OS, data dir is: D:\Phoenixcoin\data http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=11113781956684070159

    Sorry for the delay had to find a file host. Edit: fixed link with better DL source.

    GPU Nvidia 560M seemed to work but never got any status at the pool on its work so I closed it and quit working there.

    Alpha Wolf, are you getting 4khs out of the 560M … thats strange


  • | Tip MrSheep

    Is there also a linux version available for the GPU miner? I could run some tests on a 7950 card.

    Not sure if it helps - i have also installed a PXC p2pool on p2pool.maeh.org:10554. This one uses the ghostlander source from github and is in a p2pool network with pool20 and p2pool.neoscrypt.de - so that looks fine right now.

    Regards,

    MrSheep

    MrSheep, you can pull the code from GitHub. After all, it’s open source.

    https://github.com/vehre/neo-gpuminer

    Your P2Pool is connected to my 3 nodes. Wellenreiter’s nodes report different blocks found.


  • | Tip lizhi

    12 hours away ,3.7.4exp work normal , my five miners have about 150K/s hashrate .

    pool.ftc-c.com:10554 located im China

    I would think that that is probably about normal for neoscrypt?

    From my CPU mining I’ve seen that neoscrypt has a pretty low hash rate when compared to other types of scrypt mining.

    I did think it looked a bit low, but there was no tweaking or overclock done.


  • Regular Member | Tip tmuir12

    3.75 is available on Github, the link Ghostlander has put above.

    Once I’ve finished downloading all the dependancies I will try to compile it tonight.

    3.75 is still a Beta so there may still be issues


  • | Tip Alpha Wolf

    Pair of Sapphire R9 270 none X at work, as a test only. Still unable to get solo mining to work.

    Its kinda strage… i am getting 8khs out of 550M… there is a huge difference between 550M and 560M

    Next week I will be testing the 7990s the heavy artillery 😃

    I think there is an endian issue between the cgminer and the PXC wallet.

    I think the same issue also occurs if you try to solo mine using minerd, which is why solo mining only works if you use the wallet itself to mine.

    Sorry I can’t be more specific than that as when the Dev discussions starts getting into that detail it goes over my head.

    I’m sure I saw a post that one way around this at the moment is to set up your own P2Pool, but don’t advertise it, so essentially you are solo mining via your own private P2Pool


  • | Tip einkerl

    I have compiled the 3.7.5 code from vehre but i get no accepted shares. Anybody an idea what im doing wrong ?

    cgminer --neoscrypt --worksize 128 --thread-concurrency 200 -o stratum+tcp://pool20.neoscrypt.de:10554 -u PqQUhPTznbRWxGgZYyNRGyPxjj71oVL9Ax -p x

    I have compiled with

    autoreconf -fvi

    CFLAGS="-O2 -msse2" ./configure --enable-neoscrypt

    make

    strip cgminer

    no errors

    @daimyo I think the low khash may be because its set to I 8 auto I guess because I didn’t set anything for that setting like I did for the R9 270’s.

    @ I 13 Edit: doing a quick test at -I 10 and seeing 12.70 kh/s -I 11 -I 13 makes the PC to sluggest almost unusable with a loss of kh/s

    10 seems to be spot on for this 560M.

    @tmuir12 The minerd works just fine in windows 7 and wasn’t much of a problem at all to get working.

    My wallet is on one computer and I am mining with five other PC’s across the network to that wallet.

    I also use minerd on this laptop and use localhost or 127.0.0.1 to connect to that wallet. In Linux there

    was a problem getting minerd to find or see the wallet and I did have to use the wallet software in Linux

    to mine on my Quad CPU 32 core server rig.

    A simple command line like this works across the network to the wallet there.

    minerd.exe --no-gbt -a neoscrypt -R 10 -o 192.168.1.107:3333 -O phoenixcoinpc:x --threads 6

    This isn’t from my server wallet but I’m pretty sure these are the phoenixcoin.conf lines that are working for me.

    I’ll update if its different from what I’ve posted.

    I agree with Bushstar, we need a well tested change over to neoscrypt and GPU mining is an essential element. Thanks for all the great work…
