Mac Users: New to Burstcoin Wallet, Plotting & Mining
Just use the web wallet. No need to download the big blockchain DB at the begging.
And now activate your account by going to the faucet https://faucet.burst-team.us/
For setting up your wallet for pool mining with pool.burst-team.us
Login your wallet and paste bellow url and press enter
Set reward recipient:
Passphrase: Your passphrase
For pool.burst-team.us enter this number: BURST-32TT-TSAC-HTKW-CC26C
leave 2 field on the top.
Go to: https://github.com/r-majere/mjminer
and download the zip file and unzip it.
In terminal open that path(cd into mjminer-master directory)
makeand press enter, if you see bellow error:
--- Compiling for 64-bit arch --- CFLAGS=-D OSX -D AMD64 -O2 -Wall -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -m64 as -o shabal64-darwin.o shabal64-darwin.s shabal64-darwin.s:30:14: error: single quote way too long # 64 'ptr' field (8 bytes) ^ make: *** [shabal64-darwin.o] Error 1```
shabal64-darwin.sin any text editor and replace the single quote with double quote on line 30 as bellow
64 'ptr' field (8 bytes)
64 "ptr" field (8 bytes)
Now in terminal command/write
makeand press enter. Hope this time it'll compile successfully.
for first time ploting use commad like bellow
./plot -k 6891xxx9176xxx3xxx -d /Volumes/ArchiveRB/plots -s 0 -n 409600 -m 8192 -t 3
-k : the number after it is your Numerical ID
-d: The path where you want to create the plot file
-s: Plot starting point, for first plot start with 0
-n: How much space(in nounce) you want to plot(see more bellow)
-m: How much memory you want to consume during plot your file
-t: Number of thread of you CPU want to engage to do this, check your CPU config in google to find out how many Thread you CPU have
Use plot command generator: https://github.com/robertbiswas/mjminer-Plot-Command-Generator
Download the zip and open the index.html to your browser.
Here is what @haitch thought me about it:
"For first plot
s 0 # Start at nonce 0 # next plot start at (-s value) + (-n value)
-n 380928 # Each nonce = 256KB. Divide (disk size) by (262144), then divide by (stagger size -m) : round down, multiply by (stagger size.)
-m 4096 # a nonce is 256KB, so 4096 nonces = 1GB. With more memory, multiply by amount to use
-t ? # will depend on your CPU, it's the number of threads to use - set it to number of CPU threads, or threads - 1 to make it more usable"
To Plot 100GB in Macmini core i5 took 5 hours, to plot 1TB taking 36 hours.
Download and modify file named ```jminer.properties````. I did as below, you do with your data where needed.
plotPaths=/Volumes/ArchiveRB/plots,/Volumes/ArchiveRB/plots/plot2 poolMining=true numericAccountId=6891xxx9176xxx3xxx poolServer=http://pool.burst-team.us walletServer=https://wallet.burst-team.us:8125 refreshInterval=2000 connectionTimeout=120000
Leave other conf as it is they'll take the default value. This file has very good explanation hope you'll find that very helpful. Thanks @r-majere for doing this nicely.
now go to into that directory using terminal and press command like bellow:
*** So happy mining! ***
Replay if you think it's helpful. Thanks
Thank you for this, I recently sold all of my Macs, but I'll be getting another for testing soon, seems you've done your homework, much appreciated for the post!
@crowetic Thank you.
Just want to mention, that up-to-date jminer releases/sources can be found here:
Thanks @robert !
@robert You should link the jminer directly to its source. https://github.com/de-luxe/burstcoin-jminer/releases
You fixed the wrong link at plotting, jminer can not plot.
@luxe Fixed now. Thanks for correction.
@robert Question...Can I use this for my MacBook Pro 10.7.5 ? I'm about to get a regular Windows and plot from the Windows client and mine with the MacBook.
@chyna88 If you plot in Windows then you have to manage the file system. OS x can't write on NTFS without help of thrid party s/w, if you go for FAT then it can't manage large files. You can use mjminer to plot in mac. Let me know if you have any more inquiries.
Thanks, Robert,.. I will give it a try!...I'll let you know ;)
@robert Thanks for this useful guide.
I'm currently running Blago miner in Vmware Fusion on a old Mac Pro because i just couldn't figure out how to get this running on a mac.
I just have one question tho, one i run ./run.bat i get this output. (screenshot added)
any idea what that is?
Are you using Windows in VMware? Sorry I never tried in Windows( I don't have one :( ). If so then why don't you use the Windows Client version. For windows I think you'll get support here https://forums.burst-team.us/topic/179/quick-guide-to-the-aio-wallet-plotter-miner
You can start again with Mac and let me know in which step you are facing problem.
This guide might come in handy for introducing some of my Mac friends :)
@robert HI Sorry, I think my previous post was a bit confusing.
So i'm currently mining on a old Mac Pro via Vmware Fusion, i'm running the windows client in there and it works.
But I have a macbook and a mac mini which i could be mining on as well but I get an error on the macbook, hence the screenshot above.
Please let me know your thoughts or if you could guide me in any way.
@mafia07 wich Java version you have? need 8
I've managed to get this working, busy moving my plots now.
I've got 1TB mining on OSX now. I do notice I get this error once in a while.
#the last line on screenshot "nonce submit not successful"
or i get an error 1007
What could be causing this? Is it a setting perhaps?
