Hey man, this video was really helpful, I just have 1 Question, I'll be
going on vacation soon and I got myself a few of these, what frequency
should I set it to If I plan on keeping it on for a long amount of time?

Can you run several gridseeds on the same cpuminer? I mean isn't there a
code for like detect all?

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.

Im not getting the green line to indicate that it is working. do you know
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.

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!
