When I double click the start file this error pops up. "pthreadGC2.dll is
missing from your computer"

Can you make instructions on how to get it to mine scrypt coins in a Linux
operating system. I have compiled cpuminer in my Linux system but it never
receives anything, I just see the yellow text. I never see any green text
so I am at a loss. I've been using mint Linux.

times, every time (this is bfg miner) i get this error, it just doesn't
work with cpu miner aswell.
please give any advice.

what i have to fix?

Any thoughts why I can't mine past about the 10:00min mark. It just keeps
finding blocks but never Accepts shares...I get this over and over again

Symantec says minerd.exe in file cpuminer-gc3355-win32-fixed.exe is a virus.
Verify it is NOT please.

why do you have 65 com ports in use ?

Can you use this cpuminer setup for more then one miner?...(with usb hub)

Thanks for this great video. I followed your steps, however, I see my
hashes at around 300mhz and climbs. It won't accept any shares, so it's
like it is mining but won't accept the shares. My pool online doesn't show
the worker is active or doesn't show the hashes. Any ideas?

Excessively low share rate? Can someone help?

So I'm running on Hashfaster's LTC pool. Two nights ago, my shares were
good, earnings were typical of what my hashing power should yield.

Yesterday morning, I'd left everything.

My hashing power was the same, but instead of my share-rate being like
10-12 S/s, but share rate is now .10-.15 S/s.

Worker difficulty has not changed significantly, and difficulty only went
up a little today. I was thinking it was on their end, so I wanted to go to
WeMineLTC to check that out, only I couldn't get Sandor111's version of
cpuminer (with hashrate) to connect properly. "Stratum connection failed",
or something like that...

What would be causing this, when my hashrate is the same? If hashes are the
same, shouldn't share rate be consistent!?

I also tried the version of cpuminer used in Eyeboot's scrypt-only youtube
video for gridseeds, and I got some kind of .dll error.

"pthreadGC2.dll is missing", which apparently means, that file is
corrupted, from my little research. Is that the reason? Perhaps the
cpuminer version that IS working, is working, but it missing that
component? That would be my only guess... How could I go about restoring
that .dll file easily, preferably without having to do a system repair, and

Hope someone can help me... Thanks!

can i mine in windows xp with this 1... please let me know i wanna buy 1

that hash rate wont be accurate no matter how long you run it... normally
wemineltc's 'worker hash rate' is a few HUNDRED kilohashes over what is
actually the hash rate... never go by the pool's stated rate for it can't
properly judge speed cause its always 'estimated' of which it even says ON
the worker's page. . . you can only tell what your real hash rate is by
looking at your mining program -.-

Doesn't work for windows 8.1 drivers wont install right

i connected this miner like you, but speed is not 300К, it is 190-210K
where can be a problem???

Hi, Great video! One question I have everything set up correctly, but when
I try to run the "start mining" program I get a screen that says that my
computer is missing pthreadGC2.dll. Do you know what this problem stems
from? And How can I fix it? I fear I may have deleted pthreadGC2.dll and I
have emptied my recycle bin!
