zcminer (2016-11-02) - a CUDA equihash miner

Curently supporting Kepler, Maxwell & Pascal GPUs

This is a developer fee miner, meaning that a fraction of your hash rate is
used to support the developer. If your pool is not supported by this miner,
a pool will be chosen from a list of default pools for mining the dev fee.
Note that if none of the default pools are available, this miner will stop
working entirely. All displayed rates are based on your shares only.

In case of questions or problems, contact me under 'zcminer.dev@gmail.com'.

Wish you happy mining!

this bug only with coinmine... testing flypool now

@krnl:
Looks like a bug in the miner which causes problems when mining on this pool.

For now, you should be ok if you stick with:
us1-zcash.flypool.org:3333 (zCash)
stratum.zcash.nicehash.com:3357 (zCash)
equihash.usa.nicehash.com:3357 (Bitcoin)

how many threads I must set for 1070 optimal performance ?

@krnl
Default is 14, I think, and that should be optimal (or close to optimal). Your free to try a little higher or lower values. Doesn't make that much of a difference.

huge cpu load when running on 6 card rig..
4371 krnl 20 0 0.103t 556188 471848 S 200.0 6.9 10:58.25 zcminer_pascal_

@krnl
Yes that might be a problem, I can only test with 1 gpu since I have only one...
Try reducing the threads per GPU to 8 ('-t 8'). That might help a little and not cause too much performance hit.
I will work on the cpu problem in the next version...

you mention a retsart script might be a good idea, why dont you supply users with one?

how do I fix this error:
./zceminer_maxwell_kepler_cuda70: error while loading shared libraries: libcudaartso7.9: csnnot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I got this on Ubuntu 16.04
./zcminer_pascal_cuda8.0: error while loading shared libraries: libcudart.so.8.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

me2 how do we fix this? Thanks

Is fee gathering things compatible with miningpoolhub?
https://zcash.miningpoolhub.com

I'll post miner info at pool if it works as intended.
Cannot test it on my side right now.

Trying to install CUDA Toolkits,
will be back in 10 minutes.

okie thanks, will try now

@Dango
@cryptomined
Did you put put the libcudart.so.8.0 from the repository in the same folder as the binary? Then it should work...
Otherwise, you might try to install cuda 8.0

isnt that the zcminer/Linux folder?

Hi, i dont think you understand my point. I was trying to argue that making your miner open-source would be a much better service for the community as what you are doing now:
- distributing a binary miner where no one sees the code and if it does not contain malware
- asking for a outrageous 10% fee for your miner
- using other open-source code in a for-profit closed source project.

It is not only unethical, but also short-sighted. It is pretty certain that in one/two weeks someone will release a fully functioning CUDA miner for Linux, that will be also open-source and will not ask for a 10% fee. In that moment you miner will be obsolete, everyone will stop using it, and you will be out of the game.

A much better option would be to make your code open-source, and ask for donations. There is a lot of people who would donate now and in the future for support, for updates of new CUDA code, new cards & drivers. Like that your project and you could be relevant into the future and give back to the community from which you already took.

Im surprised and disapointed there are people here who are ok with your fee and the conditions of running a binary they didnt compile on their systems.

I tried cuda and I cannot boot in my system anymore...
I have no time for this today. Will try this weekend.

Good luck!
