Ethminer 0.19.0 hanging



  • I updated my ethminer to 0.19.0 and now it hangs right after "creating light cache buffer, size: 62.97 MB. System had been humming along fine and suddenly it is dead in the water.

    Hi tnewbold, sorry it didn't work automatically. Are you suffering from miner crashes and/or receiving DAG errors when trying to mine Ethash? Check out Docs Eth-Death article: https://forum.getpimp.org/topic/9661/eth-death-understanding-ethash-gpu-vram-requirements and Broomeys 4GB Eth-Life article https://forum.getpimp.org/topic/9751/mining-eth-on-4gb-gpu-s Happy mining!

    TLDR: try teamredminer and/or phoenixminer for those 3.93 GB GPUs, or choose another algorithm such as raven, see articles for details.



  • I was afraid I was suffering from Eth-death. Can you point me in the direction of information for mining Raven with AMD cards? I can't seem to find anything that tells me which mining profile to use. Thanks!
