Using cpuminer-opt


#1

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

cpuminer-westmere -a lyra2z -o stratum+tcp://eu1-zcash.flypool.org:3333 -u taddress.worker

I get errors:
Failed to get extranonce2_size


#2

zcash (zec) do not use lyra2z algorithm, it use Equihash: https://z.cash/blog/why-equihash.html


#3

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.


#4

The article is wrong. From the developer of cpuminer-opt: "cpuminer-opt can't mine zcash" https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1326803.msg16758112#msg16758112
