The discord link in your sig doesn't work.
What deadline should I set if I want to try your pool?
I guess you mean your tax department. I don't have to pay any tax if the money comes from outside my country.
I'm more concerned with doing the work and the pool owner keeping the coins I helped to find.
Anyway, at the moment I am not mining because I'm plotting more and optimizing the plots
How are you getting on?
Do you have a plot file in /media/robert/BURST ?
Hi dude, I am only trying pool mining. I started with pool.burst-team.us and actually got 22 burst, but I then switched to burstneon.ddns.net and so far nothing. They have a chat and some guys are quite helpful but there is nothing with these mining pools to show that you are working until you get some burst from them to show it wasn't just time being wasted.
I'm now mining with 1.18 TB and I'll and I'll add more when I know that for sure my mining is being counted.
I agree with you that there is no security as to who we are mining for, basically a lot of trust.
Hope you are doing well
Thanks for clarifying that.
I'm not sure why the drive is NTFS, I think maybe because once upon a time it needed to work with a windows machine (external drive)
I'm running the latest version of Mint so I guess that is 18.1
I've plotted 1.18 TB and I'm trying to mine on burstneon but I'm still not sure it is working.....
Kind of frustrating, but I guess eventually I'll get it.
Couple of questions....
once my miner is running can I close my web based wallet https://wallet.burst-team.us:8125/index.html ??
Also can I close the pool website http://burstneon.ddns.net/ ??
Or do I have to keep those windows open all the time?
So much of this stuff is just not made clear and the documentation is really vague.
Thank you for the excellent advice re: plotting.
Your suggestion to use a spreadsheet is very clever, I will do that using Google Sheets.
I spent (wasted) the last few days trying to plot a 1TB drive. It would get to 4.3GB then stop. This morning I decided to try plotting more space on my 2TB drive and that went smoothly, so I thought maybe there is something wrong with the 1TB drive.
Turns out plotting works on NTFS formatted drives but will not work on FAT formatted drives. So I need to reformat the 1TB to NTFS first.
I am using Linux Mint Cinnamon 64bit.
Creepminer seems to be working fine for me, but I have a problem understanding the settings for doing plots.
Specifically what do I use as settings when I want to make a new plot for a new drive?
These were the settings I used for my first test plot
./plot -k 10747524060435184832 -x 2 -d /media/sean/2TB/plots -s 0 -n 2048000 -m 4096 -t 3
Using original algorithm.
Creating plots for nonces 0 to 2048000 (537 GB) using 1024 MB memory and 3 threads
If I now want to plot another drive (950 GB) what should I change? Below is the same config but with the new drive path, I just don't understand what I should put for -s & -n for the next drive.
./plot -k 10747524060435184832 -x 2 -d /media/sean/5623-92A3/plots -s 0 -n 2048000 -m 4096 -t 3
Thanks for your help!
I'm trying the dcct-gui but when I try to mine I get this error
xterm: Can't execvp dcct-mine: No such file or directory
Can you help?
