NSGminer v0.9.2: The Fastest Feathercoin / NeoScrypt GPU Miner
Well actually,the new drivers do. It depends upon to card. See excerpt title from installation guide below.
“Server GPU (Headless) and No-X Server Support with the AMD CatalystTM Graphics Driver”.
So running X allow the fan and temp information to be displayed via the miner interface?
@wec It does allow.

what does it mean when the word “WAIT” appears after the fan and temp information?
@greenuser > What does it mean when the word “WAIT” appears after the fan and temp information?
It probably means you have disabled the GPU. Press [G] then look at the GPU status.
The menu options are there. The option [E] enables the GPU.
It can be easy to accidentally press D, after or whilst adjusting settings.
WAIT means a slow pool or an unreliable Internet connection.
@ghostlander - Do you have any knowledge of Ethos? Ive been using it to mine Ether for awhile and have recently tried installing your NSGminer on it to mine FTC. The miner loads ok and appears to connect to my pool and begin hashing but I never see anything on my pool. Ethos comes with sgminer-gm which can hash neoscrypt and setting that up works fine (both locally and on the pool) however its about half the speed of your miner.
Ethos is a slimmed down version of Ubuntu from what I understand, originally designed for Ethereum mining. Does your miner use something that may have been removed on Ethos?
@AmDD NSGminer has most dependencies built in. You need curl and ncurses. If it hashes with no HW errors, then it produces valid shares.
@ghostlander Still not having any luck here. It looks like its hashing, kinda, but I see nothing ever show up on my pool. If I start a CPU miner on my windows desktop I see it show up on the pool after about 30seconds or so.
Do I have to specify I want Neoscrypt? I dont see any mention of that in the readme.
EDIT: Yes. I saw in the readme it says add --scrypt to mine scrypt coins but it doesnt say anyting else. I added --neoscrypt and it started right up. My hash rate is way low but I’ll fiddle with it some more to bring that up.

Hey Ghost. I previously had a problem with NSGMiner randomly shutting itself down, even on a brand new rig with a fresh OS install. The 0.9.4 release fixed the issue and had been working great until my last windows update which I believe added the Spectre/Meltdown fixes. Unfortunately it has started shutting down again. Any thoughts, or any way I can help troubleshoot?
@winter-miner That Windows update has messed up things for many software titles. If this is just a mining rig, uninstall the update.
