still getting bignum.h missing (checked out twice, once with new clone, just to be sure)

In file included from /memcoin/memorycoin_miner/getwork_miner.cpp:5:0:
/memcoin/memorycoin_miner/momentum.h:1:20: fatal error: bignum.h: No such file or directory
 #include "bignum.h"

I'm not sure if this will be of any help. There is this guy who is building his own Primecoin pool. Here is his progress and sources http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=1673.0

That's very interesting. I'll have a much better chance at compiling c#.

Protoshares uses 3838 as the RPC port, so our RPC is 1925, so that's the one we should probably use so I've made that change. Still hardcoded though. bignum.h update made too. Can post here or github, what ever is more convenient to you.

 (would this be better to do in the github issue tracking or here?)

also, (again, unless I'm reading it wrong, which is likely) isn't the hardcoded port 3838 for the miner to get/submit work from a pool? I'm sure each pool operator might want some control over that (edit:) eventually ;)

oh, one other thing: unless I'm reading it wrong (which is likely), port 3838 seems to be hardcoded in there; is there an easy way to make that a default but overridable from the command line args?

Yes, but lets try to get all the bugs removed first. Should we have a better hardcoded port for now? Do we need a new port other than 1968 or 1925?

Thanks! Got fixes in there for those three 3 errors. We'll probably need a few back and forth getting all the errors worked out.

requires bitshares and fc from Invictus to compile. (as described in the readme) cloned those but did not compile (cmake should do that), then did in root folder:
cmake . -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release; make
and got the following errors from cmake:

sweet - I forked that privately to try my hand at editing it (lol!), but looking at C makes my eyes go all fuzzy. I'll check it out in a few minutes - have to wake up first.

I've forked the Coyote miner so that we can have a single repository with the changes required to mod it for MemoryCoin -

https://github.com/memorycoin/coyote_miner

I'm a bit hamstrung because I can't compile it, but let me know any errors with the code compilation errors and I should be able to fix.

Hi,
Can you give me  a test ?

Currently I run miner on LInux.

Thanks.

anyone with a (linux) getwork miner? anyone at all? (preferably callable by "miner_executable hostname.of.pool:port username.worker password")

:\

/so very badly now wish I had read that C book someone gave me in 1995.
//hell, I'll settle for a compiled Windows client complete with a trojan at this point.

OK, thats it. I am just going to make my own pool miner and hopefully it does not go to waste.

Is this pool for real? I am also developing one.
Yes. I'm quite close. Just need a standalone miner that can do the reference getwork protocol for memorycoins.
