[SOLVED] minerd gives me only 'booooo' all the time

edited March 2014 in Vertcoin

Hi all, I want to start mining VTC on CPU via minerd with this cmd:

 minerd.exe -a scrypt -t 4 -o stratum+tcp://vtc.give-me-coins.com:3337 -O MyWorker:MyPasswd

Output:
[2014-03-18 10:11:19] 4 miner threads started, using 'scrypt' algorithm.

Why I get only 'booooo' and no 'yay'? What I'm doing wrong? Where is the problem?

Thanks for any advice!

  • you need to use the special cpu miern for vertcoin you cant just use the normal scrypt one. Download link should be in the miners page just make sure you change the details so you are not mining for some random person

  • Thank You for answer, but I already use cpu minerd for vertcoin, that You mentioned. And also I have a good username/password.

  • oh. hmm than im not 100% sure ill see what i can find maybe someone else can chime in

  • minerd.exe -a scrypt -o stratum+tcp://vtc.give-me-coins.com:3337 -u Drakona.1 -p 123 this is the settings I use to start it. Make sure it is the new vert cpuminer and not the one normally used for feather or lite coins for that one will always show booo.

    maker sure the bat file is in the vertminer folder. and double check to make sure your workername and password are correct. make sure to allow it through windows firewall too.

    the vertminer will run at half the rate of the normal cpuminer for ltc and ftc. So if you start it and your get a high hashrate it could be the wrong one.

    I get about 3kh on my single core laptop with the normal miner and only about 1.6 with the vertminer on the same latptop.


  • Thank You Drakona for You #Comment_5411 ! I started my bat file from wrong folder, and so it started wrong minerd.exe (used for ltc/ftc). I'm lame :D

    Now it works!

  • Your welcome. I made the mistake of trying to use the wrong one at first and got all boooo as well.. wondered what was up so looked around and discovered it needed a new miner. Had to go find it and then one did and started it, started working.

    At .01 already with just a single core laptop putting out about 1.5-1.7 hk/s, Been mining since the day after it came out. Not great compared to those that gpu, but eh still pretty good for a cheap laptop I would think.

  • It means your laptop is haunted by the vertcoin ghost :D
    8-X

  • This is interesting. I started using an old (1-2 years) minerd I had
    laying around to mine vertcoin and it worked (many more YAY! than BOO!).
