How it will work: I will use Random.org to generate a truly random number between 8 and 88888888. Whoever guesses closest to the generated number will receive 1,000 DOGE through sodogetip at 8:08 PM PST, Saturday, January 27th, which is also when the giveaway will end. Each user is allowed one entry. Directions: Choose a number between 8 and 88888888, and write it in the comments below. While you’re at it, tell me what you think of my Year of the Doge video!
Stuff you might want to read:
Intro: I’m an old shibe who’s been around since the early days (on other accounts) and have the memorabilia to prove it (thanks to Shibe Mint). The Year of the Doge contest reminds me of the Hype Video competition, but with more participants, and the submitted videos have far surpassed my expectations. Everyone did an amazing job, and I’m so proud of all of you!
The Mission: This is a prime opportunity to bring more attention to Dogecoin, and everyone has to play their part. Every video submitted has a unique selling point - the graphics, voiceover, emotions, silliness, display of charity, informational value, or good-ol-fashioned doge spirit, and it’s up to all of us to market the SH**A out of that. Email your local newspapers, write about why doge is the best coin, and tweet your video to every celebrity (don’t forget Tommy Wiseau is a Bitcoiner!). Explain doge’s best selling points, from your point of view, and why everyone should hodl some. After you’ve done that, share it on social media, tell your friends, or give out paper wallets, but please don’t make promises about doge reaching a certain value in USD or making anyone rich; that’s not what doge is about!
Unnecessary Commentary: I’m afraid this sub is losing touch with what makes dogecoin so great - being the antidote to the rest of crypto. Instead of a caustic slew of price discussions and FUD about the market crashing, we’re the meme loving shibes who sponsor racecars and Jamaican bobsled teams. As our subshibers grow and doge moons, we should focus on sponsoring more projects and bringing more happiness to the world. Yes, doge has fast and cheap transactions, but other cryptos do too, and some have more “professional” viability due to their marketing (Dash, Raiblocks, etc.). The real value of doge lies in our community - and more importantly, our community projects, which we need more of… …which brings me to this video (yes, ik, a very bad self-plug, pls forgive) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NuTzXSH9aRg. This piece of work was shot on a fake GoPro that cost me $20, and edited with openshot on debian, so I didn’t think I’d end up with much. Fortunately, what I managed to squeeze out was better than expected, and I hope that after watching it, you’re inspired to go help the homeless yourself. The best tip I have is to see them as real people, with lives just as complex and interesting as yours. If you respect them, they’ll respect you, and most are happy to have someone to talk to. If you love your room as much as Brian Wilson, and don’t like to leave it, you could also help me pay back the socks, as $52 isn’t a drop in the bucket for a poor college shibe like me (address below). And, if you’d rather not send your magic internet money to some internet stranger, you could donate to some of the charities I’ve picked out below.
Mega FAQ (Or: Please come here for your questions first)
Qbundle Guide (Step by step setup & Bootstrap) https://burstwiki.org/wiki/QBundle 1( I want to mine or activate My account. Where do find the multiple coins? You only need 1, an outgoing transaction or reward reassignment will set the public key. Get them from: https://www.reddit.com/burstcoinmining/comments/7q8zve/initial_burstcoin_requests/ Or (Faucet list) https://faucet.burstpay.net/ (if this is empty, come back later) http://faucet.burst-coin.es Or https://forums.getburst.net/c/new-members-introductions/getting-started-initial-burstcoin-requests 2( I bought coins on Bittrex and want to move to my new wallet, but can't. Why? Bittrex will only send to accounts with a public key (not a Burst requirement) so see number 1 and either set the name on the account (IF you will not mine) or set the reward recipient to the pool. Either action will enable the account and allow for transfers from Bittrex. 3( I sent coins from Poloniex/anywhere to Bittrex and they don’t show up after a considerable time. Why? You need to set an unencrypted message on the transaction, informing Bittrex which account to send the funds to (this is in the directions on Bittrex). Did you do this? Contact Bittrex support with all the details and eventually you will get your funds. 4( How much can I make on Burst? https://explore.burst.cryptoguru.org/tool/calculate Gives you an average over time assuming a few things like: Average luck/100% uptime/no overlapping/fees on pool/good plot scan time (<20 seconds) if you do not have all of these, you may not see that number. 5( If I use SSD’s would I make more money? No, it’s 95% capacity and 5% scan time that determine success. More plot area = better deadlines = better chance of forging a block, or better rates from a pool. 6( What is ‘solo’ and ‘pool’ (wasn’t his name Chewbacca?) Solo is where you attempt to ‘forge’ (mine) a block by yourself; you get 100% of the block reward and fees. But you only receive funds if you forge, no burst for coming in second place. Pools allow a group of miners to ‘pool’ together their resources and when a miner wins, they give the pool the winnings (this is done by the reward assignment you completed earlier), it is then divided according to different percentages and methods and burst is sent out according to pool rules (minimum pay-out, time, etc.) 7( I have been mining for 2 days and my wallet doesn’t show any Burst WHY? Mining solo: it is win-or-lose, nothing in between, and wining is luck and plot size. Pool mining: because it costs 1 burst to send burst, the pools have either a time requirement (every X days) or a minimum amount (100 burst +) so you need to research your pool. Some pools allow for you to set the limit (cryptoGuru and similar) to be met before sending 8( How do I see what I have pending? On CryptoGuru, based pools, it’s the ‘Pending (burst)’ column, other pools, look for the numbers next to your burst ID. One is Paid and the other pending. 9( I’m part of a pool and I forged a block, but I didn’t recieve the total value of the block, why? A pool has 2 basic numbers that denote the pay-out method, in the format ‘XX-XX’ (i.e. 50-50) The first number is the % paid to the block forger (miner) and the second is the retained value, which is paid to historic ‘shares’ (or, past blocks that the pool didn’t win, but had a miner that was ‘close’ to winning with a good submitted deadline) Examples of pools: 0-100 (good for <40TB) 20-80 (30-80TB) 50-50 (60-200TB) 80-20 (150-250) 100-0 (solo mine, 150+ TB) Please note that there is an overlap as this is personal preference and just guidance; a higher historical share value means a smoother pay-out regime, which some people prefer. If fees are not factored in, or are the same on different pools, the pay-out value will be the same over a long enough period. 10( Is XXX model of hard drive good? Which one do you recommend? CHEAP is best. If you have 2 new hard drives, both covered by warranty, get the one with the lowest cost per TB (expressed as $/TB , calculated by dividing the cost by the number of terabytes) because plot size is KING, 11( How many drives can I have on my machine? For best performance, you can have up to 2 drives per thread (3 on a new fast AVX2 CPU). So that quad-core core-2-quad can have up to 8 drives, but a more modern i7 with 4 cores + hyper threading can squeeze 8 * 3 or 24 drives. (Performance while scanning will suffer) 12( Can I game while I mine? Some people have done so, but you cannot have the ‘maximum’ number of drives and play games generally. 13( Can I mine Burst and GPU mine other coins? Yes, if you CPU Mine Burst. 14( I’m GPU plotting Burst and GPU mining another coin, my plots are being corrupted, why? My advice is dedicating a GPU to either mining or plotting, don’t try to do both. 15( What is a ‘plot’? A plot is a file that contains Hashes, these hashes are used to mine burst. A plot is tied to an account, but they can be created (with the same account ID) on other machines and connected back to your miner(s). 16( Where can I trade/buy/sell Burst? A list of exchanges is maintained on https://www.reddit.com/burstcoin/ (on the right, ‘Exchanges’ tab) the biggest at the moment are Bittrex and Poloniex, some offer direct Fiat-to-Burst purchase (https://indacoin.com for example) 17( Do I have to store my Burst off the exchange? No, but it’s safer from hackers who target exchanges, if you cannot guarantee the safety or security of your home computer from Trojans etc, then it might be best to leave on an exchange (but enable 2FA security on your account PLEASE!) 18( What security measures can I take to keep my coin safe? When you create an account, sign out and back in to your wallet (to make sure you have copied the pass phrase correctly) and keep multiple copies of the key (at least one physically printed or written down and in a safe place, better in 2 places) do not disclose the passphrase to anyone. Finally use either a local wallet or a trusted web wallet (please research before using any web wallet) 19( How can I help Burst? Run a wallet, which will act as a node (or if you’re a programmer, contact the Dev team Bring attention to burst (without ‘shilling’ or trying to get people to buy) And help translate into your local language Be a productive member of the community and contribute experience and knowledge if you can, or help others get into Burst. 20( Will I get coins on the fork(s) and where will they be? There will be no new coin, and no new coins to be given/air dropped etc, the forks are upgrades to burst and there will not be a ‘classic’ or ‘new’ burst. 21( Will I need to move my Burst off of the exchange for the fork? No, your transactions are on the block chain, which will be used on the fork, they will be visible after the move; nothing will need to be done on your side. 22( Where can I read about the progress of Burst and news in general on the community? There is no finer place than https://www.burstcoin.ist/ 23( What are the communities for Burst and the central website? Main website: https://www.burst-coin.org/ Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/burstcoin and https://www.reddit.com/burstcoinmining/ Burstforum.net: https://www.burstforum.net/ Getburst forum: https://forums.getburst.net/ Official Facebook channel: https://m.facebook.com/groups/398967360565392 (these are the forums that are known to be supporting the current Dev Team) Other ways to talk to the community: Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/RPhpjVv Telegram (General): https://t.me/burstcoin Telegram (Mining): https://t.me/BurstCoinMining 24( When will Burst partner up with a company? Burst is a currency, the USD does not ‘partner up’ with a company, the DEV team will not partner up and give over to special interests. 25( Why is the DEV team anonymous? They prefer anonymity, as it allows them to work without constant scrutiny and questions unless they wish to engage, plus the aim is for Burst to become a major contender, and this brings issues with security. They will work and produce results, they owe you nothing and if you cannot see the vision they provide then please do not ‘invest’ for short term gain. 26( When moon/Lambo/$100/make me rich? My crystal ball is still broken, come back to the FAQ later for answer (seriously, this is a coin to hold, if you want to day-trade, good luck to you) 27( How can I better educate myself and learn about Dymaxion? Read about the Dymaxion here: https://www.reddit.com/burstcoin/wiki/dymaxion 28( My reads are slow, why? There are many reasons for this, if your computer has a decent spec it’s likely due to USB3 hub issues, or plugging into a USB2 hub, but other reasons can be multiple plots in the same folder, but it’s best to visit the mining subreddit. They can help more than an simple FAQ https://www.reddit.com/burstcoinmining/ 29( I have a great idea for Burst (not proof of stake related)? Awesome! Please discuss with the DEV team on discord https://discordapp.com/invite/RPhpjVv (Please be aware that this is a public forum, you need to find who to ask/tell) 30( I have a great idea for Burst (Proof of stake related)? No. if you want a POS, find a POS coin. On the tangle which is being implemented a POS/POW/POC coin can be created, but BURST will always be POC mined. You are welcome to implement a proof of stake coin on this! 31( Will the Dev team burn any coins? Burst is not an ICO, so any coins will need to be bought to be burnt. You are welcome to donate, but the DEV team have no intention of burning any coins, or increasing the coin cap. 32( When will there be an IOS wallet? IOS wallet is completed; we are waiting for it to go on the app store. Apple is the delaying factor. 33( Why do overlapping plots matter? Plots are like collections of lottery tickets (and if only one ticket could win). Having 2 copies is not useful, and it means that you have less coverage of ‘all’ the possible numbers. It’s not good, avoid. 34( My local wallet used to run, I synchronised it before and now it says ‘stopped’. when I start it, it stops after a few seconds, what should I do? I suggest that you change the database type to portable MariaDB (on Qbundle, at the top, ‘Database’ select, ‘change database’) and then re-import the database from scratch (see 35) 35( Synchronising the block chain is slow and I have the patience of a goldfish. What can I do? On Qbundle , ‘Database’ select ‘Bootstrap chain’ and make sure the CryptoGuru repository is selected, then ‘start Import’ this will download and quickly stuff the local database (I suggest Portable MariaDB, see 34) (lol, loop) 36( What will the block reward be next month/will the block rewards run out in 6 months? https://www.ecomine.earth/burstblockreward/ Rewards will carry on into 2026, but transaction fees will be a bigger % by then, and so profitable mining will continue. 37( How can I get started with Burst (wallet/mining/everything) and I need it in a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJLhw37Lh_8 Watch and be enlightened. 38( Can I mine on multiple machines with the same account? Yes, if you want to pool mine this can be done (but be prepared for small issues like reported size being incorrect. Just be sure to keep question 33 in mind.) 39( Why do some of my drives take forever to plot? Most likely they are SMR drives, it’s best to plot onto another SSD and then move the finished plot/part of a plot across to the SMR drive as this is much quicker. SMR drives are fine on the read, just random writes that are terrible. So plot an SMR drive quickly, plot to a non SMR or better still SSD drive, in as big a chunk as possible (fewer files better) and move. a version of Xplotter, called Splotter, can do this easily. https://github.com/NoParamedic/SPlotter 40( I have a great idea; why not get listed on more exchanges!! Exchanges list coins because of 2 reasons:
The coin pays (often A LOT, seriously we’ve been asked for 50 BTC)
I suggest you speak with your exchange and ask ‘when will they offer Burst?’ 41( Do you have a roadmap? https://www.burst-coin.org/roadmap 42( Why is the price of Burst going up/down/sideways/looping through time? The price of burst is still quite dependent upon Bitcoin, meaning that if Bitcoin gains, the value of Burst gains, if Bitcoin drops then Burst also drops. If there is news for Burst then we will see something independent of Bitcoin moving. Variations can be because of people buying in bulk or selling in bulk. There are also ‘pump and dump’ schemes that we detest, that can cause spikes in price that have nothing to do with news or Bitcoin, just sad people taking advantage of others. 43( Where is the best place to go with my mining questions? https://www.reddit.com/burstcoinmining/ or https://t.me/BurstCoinMining 44( What hardware do you advise me to buy, is this computer good? See question 43 for specific questions on hardware, it depends on so many variables. The ‘best’ in my opinion is a 36 bay Supermicro storage server, usually they have dual 6-core CPU’s and space for 36 drives. No USB cables, plotting and mining monster, anything else, DYOR. 45( Where do you buy your hard drives? I have bought most from EBay in job lots, and some refurbished drives with short warranties. Everything else I have bought, from Amazon. 46( Can I mine on my Google drive/cloud based storage? In short: no. If you want to try, and get to maybe 1 TB and then find that your local connection isn’t fast enough, or that shortly after, your account is blocked for various reasons. Please be my guest. 47( Can I mine on my NAS? Some you can mine with the NAS (if it can run the miner, it can scan locally) but generally they’re not very fast. good for maybe 16 TB? Having a plot on a NAS and mining from another computer depends on the network speed between the NAS and scanning computer. I believe you can scan about 8 TB (maybe a bit more) and keep the scan times to within acceptable, but YMMV. 48( How can I set up a node? No need to set up a node, just set up a wallet (version 2.0.4) or Qbundle (2.2) and it will do the rest 49( Are the passphrases secured? I’ll leave the effort to a few people to show how secure a 12-word passphrase is: https://burstforum.net/topic/4766/the-canary-burst-early-warning-system Key point: brute forcing it will be around 13,537,856,339,904,134,474,012,675,034 years. 50( I logged into my account (maybe with a different burst ID) and see no balance!! I have dealt with this very issue multiple times, and there are only 3 options:
You have typed in the password incorrectly
You have copy-pasted the password incorrectly
You are trying to log into a ‘local wallet’ which the block chain has not finished updating
Hi folks. Just letting you know that I've set-up a full node. I've passionately followed cryptocurrencies since before litecoin was a thing. Taking part in this experiment was a great adventure (and it still is!) and probably one of the best decisions I could make at that time. For long time I wanted to give something back to this fantastic ecosystem. Since I'm not a developer starting a node was the next best thing I could do to hit it where it matters. I was able to squeeze bitcoind, namecoind and litecoind in OpenVZ with 512 MB RAM and 512 MB swap. The node(s) are synchronized and the ports are accessible from outside. I understand that I may have let go of litecoin or namecoin if they do not cooperate on such resource constrained system, but so far so good. From now one it will be a matter of periodic node software and system updates. I've done some research and decided to go with a VPS from Host Sailor. They seem to have good reputation, very reasonable pricing AND they take bitcoin. The server is physically located in Netherlands. I've been motivated by (among other things): http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/1scd4z/im_running_a_full_node_and_so_should_you/http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/1se3zd/how_to_create_a_full_bitcoin_node_in_a_5_ubuntu/ I know it's not much but it was a fairly simple thing I could do to contribute. Thanks everyone! Edit: some scripts that can get you started with your own node on Debian, thanks to YourMomsaWidget: Easily run a Full-Node!
Community doge was meant for a great video that simultaneously made the best use of independent music (soundcloud artists or similar). A few of them used songs very well, and a lot of you used songs provided by shibes- however I think audiospring did the best job of simultaneously making a great video while using great independent music (his own!) This was the crowd favorite at last night's dogeparty. audiospring - DOGECOIN - TO THE MOON !! (DJC feat DRU) (CC)
audiospring wins 10% of the prize pool, which comes to Ð62,379
Captions Bonus prizes
These bonus prizes were created after a suggestion by shibemperor to include captions in the videos so that deaf shibes could enjoy them too. I decided to make prizes for captions instead of forcing the rule on everyone- especially because some people had issues getting their captions to work. The challenge here was to make captions that were really descriptive and would allow deaf shibes to feel the hype. They could be funny but needed to be informative too.

So if you have a moderately powerful gaming desktop with a Quad-Core CPU like an i5 or better and 8+GB of RAM, you can easily run your own little UASF node in the background. Once it's done syncing with the network, you won't even notice it's there. Here's how. You will need :
Some sort of virtualization solution (I used Hyper-V)
Enough disk space for the blockchain (around 130GB, but you also need room for it to grow)
The following assumes you know how to install Linux in a Virtual Machine Step I. - Installation. Go through expert install and set up a base system with only ssh server enabled. For partitioning, you can do just one big disk and everything in one partition, but if you happen to have a computer that has both SSD's and HDD's, it would be optimal to create two virtual disks and use a small one for the OS on the SSD and a larger one on the HDD in a custom mount point for the blockchain. Reboot and ssh into the server. Step II. - Build requirements. A few things need to be taken care of. First, you'll want to edit the /etc/network/interfaces file and set up a static IP. Once that's done, stop by your router and make sure that traffic on port 8333 is forwarded to your debian VM. Then, install some packages we need :
...and wait about thirty hours to sync with the network. You may want to visit the /whereveyou/want/youblockchain directory and create a permanent bitcoin.conf in there. To enable RPC calls to the server and get it to accept bitcoin-cli commands you'll want to use it to create a usepassword and copy that to your user's /.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf. Minimal bitcoin.conf example
Security I recommend you disable password login and use private key authentication only on ssh, and also restrict iptables rules to the bare minimum that must be allowed for this application. You will need this in your iptables script :
# Allows BITCOIN traffic from anywhere -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 8333 -j ACCEPT # Allows RPC calls to the bitcoin server from localhost -A INPUT -p tcp -s 127.0.0.1 --dport 8332 -j ACCEPT
Mini rant. I was happy using bitcoin-qt for quite a few months now, It had gave me a few headaches, sometimes the database was corrupted or something, just re-index it. It worked fine. I always exit bitcoin-qt before shutting down the computer, to never let this happen again, but it happens from time to time. Anyway, five days ago, it started again with the database problem. I tried to reindex it, delete last blocks and reindex it, nothing was working. So, OK, screw it, delete all (except wallet file) and let download the whole blockchain again. ... Well... it stopped syncing after a while. It tells me that I need to update the client. Other times I it tells me it's syncing, but it shows a 0 blocks indexed (and no arrows icon on bottom-right). After 5 days, I just delete everything (again) and started from 0. I don't like the idea of thin client, but for the moment I've downloaded MultiBit, I read that Armory works on top of bitcoin-qt, should I try it or I will have the same problems? I know this is my problem, not a problem with bitcoin-qt itself, it worked very good for months. I don't think it's a network problem (I have a good connection), not a software problem (Debian Squeeze), as I said, I exit the program before the computer. Just a mini-rant about all this. I'm also concerned this happens to less techie people, they could easily delete the wallet file, or just get tired of bitcoins because of similar problems with the programs.
CPU mining on Xeon 2670; 15 threads @ 280h/s Vs 10 threads @ 440h/s. Say what?!
Hi all, just got started mining again (Bitcoin nostalgia) and I'd like to understand why I got such a huge boost to my hashrate when I reduced xmr-stak config's from using 15 threads down to 10?! That CPU (v1) has 16 2.6ghz threads so I started off by setting 15 to xmr-stak and keeping one free for desktop stuff. Today I noticed on http://monerobenchmarks.info that quite a few Xeon users only allocate 10 threads, so I gave it a spin and understood why immediately. It doesn't make any sense to me, could some one explain me why? Bottlenecks? Also while I'm here with you fine gents, are there other similar tweaks to squeeze more out of Xeon mining while I wait to get me some Vegas one day? I run Debian Stretch with large page support set. What's the deal with AES instructions, are they helpful or not? And what about clock frequency, the 2670 is 2.6ghz in normal mode but can go to 3.3 in Turbo ; would the clock speed gain be useful if locked in Turbo (with adequate cooling obviously)? Lastly when pool mining, how important is the network connection? Wifi is flaky where the machine sits currently, is there a minimum bw requirement for things to go smoothly? Thanks for your replies and everyone, keep up the good work this sub is very pleasant to read Vs some others...

To the moon! Dogemining with BFGMiner, Debian, and ATI.
Visitor from the future! Hello. I'm a newbie digger and recently setup my first dedicated mining box in Debian. I'm not the most experienced Linux user, but the machine had started with Debian Squeeze and I couldn't find its old Windows key. (Also please forgive formatting errors, I'm new to this whole "Reddit" thing as well.) I found a number of guides to misdirect me on my way, so I decided to write up a sort-of (or at least hopefully up-to-date) guide to create a Dogecoin miner on Debian with AMD cards, using BFGMiner to mine coins. Expert digging shibes: I would certainly appreciate feedback to improve this guide. This is not a headless mining guide. I have not reached that level of mastery yet, though I believe it is well within reach. HOWTO
Start by installing Debian Wheezy. Make sure you install the Desktop Environment package. Not only did I fail to make things work when installing X after the fact, but having the web browser will be convenient.
Unpack the BFGMiner source into a directory somewhere.
Open a terminal (shouldn't have to be root), cd to the directory with the BFGMiner source, and run: ./configure --enable-scrypt --enable-opencl
Once that completes, run: ./make
You'll see a lot of output from the build, but if everything goes well you should then be able to run ./bfgminer. You can test it by running: ./bfgminer --scrypt -S opencl:auto -o (pool URL here) -u (your worker's username for that pool) -p (your worker's password for that pool). It won't be very fast, however.
Using your preferred text editor, make a new file in your BFGMiner directory, such as "doge_dig.sh". Add the following: #!/bin/sh export GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100 export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1 ./bfgminer --scrypt --scrypt -S opencl:auto -o (pool URL here) -u (your worker's username for that pool) -p (your worker's password for that pool)
In your terminal, chmod 500 doge_dig.sh
You can refer to this wiki source to understand the output from BFGMiner 3.10.0. The one gotcha I've observed is that BFGMiner will happily start off showing hash rates in KHash/sec, and after the first accepted block it will jump to MHashes/sec. When I first saw my hash speed appear to drop from "250" to "0.2", I panicked a little before seeing it had changed its orders of magnitude. If you think you're still mining slowly, you might need to bump up the intensity for BFGMiner. Higher intensity means more work, and it's possible to create hardware failures if you set it too high. For my HD 5870s, I use an intensity of 12. You can either set the intensity by adding "-I 12" to the ./bfgminer line of doge_dig.sh, or you can adjust the value by pressing M in BFGMiner and working through the menu system from there. Bonus: Multiple cards What happens if I have multiple ATI cards on one rig, you ask? I had the same problem, and OpenCL would only recognize one of them! It turns out that there's an easy solution, but it costs $1.25 in resistors from your local radio shack: http://www.overclock.net/t/384733/the-30-second-dummy-plug Plug the finished product from there into your second card. If you have more than two cards, you'll need to make one for every card you want to recognize without a monitor attached to it. Reboot and restart your mining, BFGMiner should recognize all of your cards now. In theory, the above technique should allow you to run completely headless, as long as you also install SSH and be sure to have your script export DISPLAY=:0 before running BFGMiner. I haven't tried this, though. Happy mining and welcome to the Moon! I hope this is helpful to someone.
I just installed bitcoind, litecoind, and dogecoind on a new VPS running Debian Squeeze. The daemons were built from source. Bitcoin and dogecoin synced fine, and run just fine. Litecoin however, keeps randomly crashing, and I had to constantly restart it to allow it finish syncing as I thought it's something to do with RAM or buffers or the sort. Even after it finished syncing, it still randomly crashes without any clues. None of the logs in /valog/ have any mention to this. Here's a link to the last 20 lines of litecoin's debug.log when it crashes on several occasions: http://pastebin.com/XJUQYwkU And memory usage: http://i.imgur.com/Dnv6wy2.png What on earth is going on here?
I'd really appreciate some help, I'm running amd64 debian squeeze and I've downloaded the bitcoin client, poclbm, and phoenix. I'm trying to pool mine at https://eclipsemc.com/ and I've used "./poclbm.py -u -p --host=http://us.eclipsemc.com --port=8337 -d 0" which returns "Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC". I also tried "./phoenix.py -u http://:@us.eclipsemc.com:8337 DEVICE=0" and that returns [16/06/2011 17:43:44] Phoenix r101 starting... [16/06/2011 17:43:44] Failed to connect, retrying..." Obviously I've added in my user and password. Here are the two devices I can use:
 AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor  ATI RV730
And here is my lspci -v:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV730XT [Radeon >HD 4670] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) Subsystem: Hightech Information System Ltd. Device 2009 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 28 Memory at d0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M] Memory at fe9e0000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K] I/O ports at c000 [size=256] Expansion ROM at fe9c0000 [disabled] [size=128K] Capabilities: Kernel driver in use: fglrx_pci
If anyone can shine some light on the subject or just guide me in the right direction that would be great, thanks.
