    Starting miner ID 1 without screen for debugging.
    ** This means miner.farm will NOT show the miner as running and NOT collect stats. **
    Also, you cannot use Control+A, d to detach, you must re-launch the miner.

    For normal operation, stop the miner using Control+C,
    then start it using 'pimp --start 1' or the minerfarm agent console.

  • Staff

    Hey anibm2021, thanks for your question. For mining kawpow(rvn) we recommend a newer and more actively maintained miner - avermore does not support kawpow and that is why the pool does not accept your connection using x16r (old algo for raven). Sorry if some of our content on the forum may be outdated but you can always ask and we are happy to dig in and help. For amd use teamredminer (pimp --add 1201) or nbminer (pimp --add 2901) for mining RVN/kawpow.

  • I used a Different miner and it worked
