Best CPU Miner for Linux… what are people using? Any tips for a new linux user? Thanks!
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install qt5-default
sudo apt-get install cmake build-essential libboost-all-dev
git clone https://github.com/sarath-hotspot/nheqminer.git
This use Xenoncat CPU AVX optimizations and Tromp Solvers
It's the fastest currently
Awesome, thanks @trolloniex! I'll give it a try. Are the best settings going to be to use about 75% of the threads?
Roughly 75% yes , use -t numberofthreads for that
./nheqminer -l us1-zcash.flypool.org:3333 -u taddress.worker -t 4
This is the command to run on a pool (change the variables depending on pool address threads etc)
Wow.. only getting 6 Sol/s on a VM with 16GB Ram and 8 cores with an Xeon E5640 @ 2.67 GHz... Thought it would be more. Tried different combos.. 1 socket 8 cores, 2 sockets with 4 cores, etc... can't get above 6 Sol/s. Must be a slow CPU.
here you go fastest is this: https://github.com/kost/nheqminer/releases
Sorry to dig up old thread. I thought I read somewhere miner needs 1GB of memory to hash per thread. I thought I also read, the RAM used is fixed for now until they optimize for systems with more RAM. Can anyone confirm by checking how much RAM your nheqminer uses? On my Mac, it is exactly 1GB. I too get low hashrates.
CPU mining isn’t strong…
An equihash solver only needs 144MB for all threads combined;
