I attempt to get a Dogecoin solo mining setup to run (primarily for studying functions) on an outdated PC with Home windows 10. I selected bfgminer over cgminer as a result of I do not wish to make the most of the GPU function.
The entire thing appears to be extra sophisticated then anticipated. I discovered this thread that factors to the most recent launch of bfgminer model 5.5 and in addition a steady launch 4.10.6 – the steady launch hyperlink will not be working. So I am going with the most recent launch.
Working the executalbe on my Home windows machine returns no response nor an error. I neither get a response for the next command traces like
bfgminer.exe -v bfgminer.exe -h bfgminer.exe --help
and so forth. I additionally tried operating the executable with the required arguments pointing to the node – from the docs:
bfgminer.exe -o http://127.0.0.1:8332 -O person:password --generate-to fo
With no success, which means: No error or no suggestions returned.
The complete node for Dogecoin is up an operating on the native machine and configured for RPC entry with a person and a password.
When on the lookout for a steerage I stumble over a few affiliate posts, e.g. this outdated thread on bitcoin.stackexchange.com with some lifeless hyperlinks however no answer. Largely I land on some affiliate pages speaking about professionals and cons of mining or some reddit posts the place OP is being educated in regards to the sense of mining – with no additional technical help.
I bought no extra docs to learn, no log output or another type of response. So any assist right here is just about appreciated.
