Mac Users: New to Burstcoin Wallet, Plotting & Mining
Picture below, sorry for double post but it would not let me edit my previous post.
@robert IM trying to setup my MAC to mine burstcoin. but when I try to execute the ./run.bat command I get and error message / Permission denied. SO I tried to run it as SUDO, then I get "Command not found" Im not sure what Im doing wrong here. Should I try to plot via VM or m I just missing something here. Sorry If I sound totally beginner here. Just tryna get this plotting and mining going. Thanks guys!
@luxe ! I have successfully plotted to a file on my desktop and figured out how to get jminer to run, but I get this 10313 warning 'Unable to get mining info from wallet, caused by connectionTimeout, currently '12 sec.' try increasing it!' - 'Error: Failed to 'getRewardRecipient' for pool info: java.lang.NullPointerException' and 'Error: Failed to 'getBlockchainStatus' from 'walletServer' to find last winner' How can I fix this from occuring?
Here are my jminer.properties:
MINING MODE --------
MINING MODE - POOL -----------
MINING ENGINE ---------------
MINING ENGINE - APPEARANCE / BEHAVIOR ---------------
MINING ENGINE - MEMORY USAGE -----------
WHERE AM I GOING WRONG? ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!
@initialattck Guess just some fine adjustment needed ... try:
poolServer=http://pool.burst-team.us:8124 connectionTimeout=24000 walletServer=
walletServer is just for additional info, you can add it later ... may have issues with https, you can use localhost:8125 later if you run your own wallet or something.
Edit: sry missed the http:// for pool
@luxe - I appreciate the rapid response! I changed the settings in jminer.properties file as you indicated:
I feel like I am so close to getting the miner configured. Do you have any other suggestions, based on the Terminal screenshot?
Thank you in advance for your time!
@initialattck Not sure, the miner just tries to get mining info from pool, and reports that is does not get the mining info in time. It is not because of your internet connection, it may also be the pool server under heavy load. Maybe you want to try another pool, just to compare.
I am not seeing any progress on terminal when plotting with mjminer. here is a screenshot
Is that normal? Or should i be seeing some percentages etc.?
Hey I am having trouble with the terminal codes:
if my folder is in /downloads: do I need to write:
When I write this, nothing happens after and then I can a command error...
can Macs use mjminer? I am trying to mine with my CPU
Hey, I think I am mining but how do I know if I am successfully mining? I'm just not getting any errors when I run the miner. But I also didn't run it with the ./run.bat command - instead I used sh run.sh. I am seeing a bunch of info with no errors. Am I mining?
Also can I mine from 2 different harddrives at different locations using the same wallet/pool?
