GPU plot generator v4.1.1 (Win/Linux)



  • 16.04, If I have problems I will update to 16.10.



  • @vadirthedark read my "tutorial"
    16.04 is ok, you don't need to update



  • @ccminer Update, I had an error with AMD....3.0 so I reinstalled AMD.....2.91 and seems to be working fine. Was able to see Platforms and Devices #'s and then I ran ./gup... setup to get these numbers in devices.txt:

    0_0_0_20971520_8192
    6510305595672859587_0_15991_8192

    I have a 5TB drive and intend to plot entire drive with 1 plot. After I formated the drive the remainder was actually 4.7TB, is this the number to use to figure nonces?
    Also, when you run the ./gpu.... generate in terminal will that start the plotting precess? Is there anything else I need to do?
    Thanks for all your help



  • @ ccminer Sorry need to delete last post - wrong info and questions.



  • @vadirthedark So have you been able to plot or not I didn't understand



  • @ccminer I have not tried to plot. 1st paragraph is ok, except output to devices.txt ( #'s are wrong). The last 2 lines are ok, just need help with setting up my drive. Did you make 1 plot on your drive? Did you have any files on it for plotting?
    Here is devices.txt:

    0_0_0_20971520_8192
    _0_15990_8192

    How do they look for 16GB RAM, 4GB memory gpu, 5TB (4.7TB?) drive? Also the path indicated in the ./gpu.... generate-is that the path to your working files or path to drive?
    Thanks again.



  • @vadirthedark

    I have 16gb, and 4 gb gpu, and I'm plotting 5tb in one single file too LOL

    this is my devices.txt:

    0 0 10500 480 8192

    This is my plotting and stagger:

    _0_19075000_68125

    Hope these infos are useful for you



  • @ccminer Yes that helps a lot. I am working through the numbers and mine are similar to yours.
    Did you manually place a folder on your drive and is the path at ./gpu... generate to that file?
    Thanks



  • @vadirthedark Nope I'm using an external HD, so I just command the plotter to create the plot file there



  • @ccminer Error message, this is what I input:

    0 0 10000 256 8192 (devices.txt)

    I have adjusted devices.txt numbers and the generate line, with no success. I even tried your numbers with no success. I'm thinking my path call may be where the problem lies.



  • @vadirthedark
    mmmm in the devices.txt there must be just the numbers you wrote, nothing more than that!
    So be sure you didn't accidentaly pushed a space or the enter button, than save again



  • @ccminer Getting closer 🙂
    Received this after I checked devices.txt:

    Loading platforms...

    [ERROR] Unable to open plots file



  • @vadirthedark check your path (plot path) there must be a mistake



  • @ccminer Checked gparted, shower path to be /dev/sdc1 so I revised path with same message. Ideas?



  • @vadirthedark when I got that message was because the path was wrong I fixed it and it worked I don't know if you can get the same message for another error



  • @ccminer Was your path and my similar?



  • @vadirthedark /media/imbota/burst
    If you named your computer imbota and your external HD burst so yes it is right, else it is wrong



  • @ccminer I did name my computer 'imbota' and the drive 'burst'. If I say the path is /media/imbota/burst/ do I need to add something after burst/ for the plot file name (plots, coin, etc.)?
    When I go to my Files in Ubuntu and select 'burst' drive I get a pop-up that shows /media/imbota/burst-I assume this is the path to the drive. Since my burst files are on another drive (1st HHD) does this have an affect?

    I read in a forum where someone had this problem and placed the burst files on the drive to plot-the problem went away.

    In the Readme at the section on Generate it states:

    Example usage:
    ./gpuPlotGenerator generate buffer /path/to/files/123456_0_50000_5000

    The part /path/to/files/ confuses me. It seems to say the program will be looking for 'files' in order to place info? Am I wrong?
    Above you say "...., so I just command the plotter to create the plot file there". How did you do this?
    Thanks for your help.



  • @vadirthedark should be like this in your case:

    ./gpuPlotGenerator generate buffer /media/imbota/burst/123456_0_50000_5000

    (change the last numbers after "burst/" with your own wallet number id and your settings)



  • @ccminer Update - I checked drive permissions and revised them and placed a 'plots' folder on drive 'burst'.

    Ran the generate again and got this:

    The WGS is the size you are using for 5TB drive. Think I should reduce WGS - any ideas?
