Using cpuminer-opt


Anyone managed to get cpuminer-opt mining z-cash? I'm using flyppol, but after executing:

cpuminer-westmere -a lyra2z -o stratum+tcp:// -u taddress.worker

I get errors:
Failed to get extranonce2_size


zcash (zec) do not use lyra2z algorithm, it use Equihash:


I don't find option for equihash algorithm in the cpuminer-opt, but this article lists it as one of the best CPU miner for zcash.


The article is wrong. From the developer of cpuminer-opt: "cpuminer-opt can't mine zcash"


Thank's for clarifying


I'm glad I could help :slight_smile:
