protoshares.com Mining Guide suggestion
« on: January 13, 2014, 06:58:49 PM »

Hello,

I've used the Mining Guide in http://protoshares.com/mining.html and I was constantly getting an error in a specific step:

screen –S ptc

I would get the error message:

Cannot exec '�S': No such file or directory

After a lot of tries and searching, I've discovered that it was very simple: the character before the S was not a simple dash (-).

The same with the commands
screen –d
screen –r

The difference is "–" vs "-", the first one being the wrong one and the one in the guide.

I'm not sure if this is just me, because of character encoding settings or something, but if possible I'd suggest replacing it in the guide.

The simple dash is used previously in the guide (make -f makefile.unix && cd ~) correctly. It is only different with the screen commands.

Anyway, here is my experience, hope it is useful for newcomers.

Best regards

Just registered in GitHub and first time using it but I think I did it right (the pull request)  :D

I had heard many times about it before but never actually got to try it, cool tool  :)

I think ypool.net is better and faster than ptsweb.beeeeer.org
Try this method for mining:
1. Create account in http://ypool.net
2. Create worker here http://ypool.net/pts/workers or use default USERNAME.PTS_1 with password x
3. Create droplet with Ubuntu 13.10 x64
4. Run these commands:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install screen vim
Code: [Select]
wget https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jvp4wwek8jpohj7/aK1qrBEQ8R/yam-yvg1900-M7j-linux64-core2.tgz
Code: [Select]
tar xvzf yam-yvg1900-M7j-linux64-core2.tgz
Code: [Select]
cd yam-yvg1900-M7j-linux64-core2/linux64-core2
Code: [Select]
vi pts.cfg
Paste this code but change threads = 1 to your cpu core, USERNAME to ypool.net username, PTS_1 ot your worker, x to your worker password, 512 to ram memory per core (128, 256, 512, 1024):
Code: [Select]
threads = 1
mining-params = pts:av=0&m=512
mine = xpt2h://USERNAME.PTS_1:[email protected]:10034:8080:8081:8082:8083:8084:8085:8086:8087/pts
compact-stats = 1
print-timestamps = 0
then press ESC button and write ":wq" (without the quotes) to save and close the .cfg file

Code: [Select]
screen -S pts ./yam -c pts.cfg
then press Ctrl + A + D
This will close the screen, but it will not stop the miner.
If you want to see the miner use command:
Code: [Select]
screen -r ptsYou can check your connected miners here http://ypool.net/pts/workers_live

Add a tutorial for it.
