SGminer configuration

SGminer is a free, command-line-only (no user interface) program that supports many different hashing algorithms and Neoscrypt in particular (algo used by Orbitcoin PoW mining) since version 5.0.
This post covers the installation of SGminer on Windows, MacOS X and Linux.
Neoscrypt mining with SGminer from the 5.0 version only works with AMD GPUs.
To use SGminer on Windows, follow these steps :
• Download a build of SGminer (Windows 32bit) by clicking here.

• Extract the content of the downloaded archive.
(to C:\Program Files for example)

• Open the Windows Command Prompt program.
(Start button > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt)

• Navigate to SGminer directory by entering the following command in the Command Prompt window :
(if you installed the program under C:\Program Files)

cd program files\SGminer-5

• Next, enter these two commands one at a time in the Command Prompt :

setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1

• Now launch SGminer by entering the basic following command in the Command Prompt :
(replace “myworker” and “mypassword” by the worker name and the worker password you chose while registering to the mining pool)

sgminer.exe –algorithm neoscrypt –url stratum+tcp://strat.dnb.io:3031 -u myworker -p mypassword

• SGminer starts working (or “hashing”) with its default values.

In a next post, I’ll be covering how to tune SGminer settings in order to improve its efficiency. In the meantime, reading SGminer manual is recommended.

 

To use SGminer on MacOS X, follow these steps :
• Download a build of SGminer by clicking here.

• Extract the content of the archive.
(to your Applications folder for example)

• Open the Terminal application.
(Application > Utilities > Terminal)

• Navigate to SGminer folder by entering this command in the terminal :
(if you installed the program in “Applications”)

cd Applications/SGminer-5.1.0-NeoScrypt_MacOS

• Enter these two commands one at a time in the terminal :

export GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100
export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1

• Now launch SGminer using the basic following command in the Terminal :
(replace “myworker” and “mypassword” by the worker name and the worker password you chose while registering to the mining pool)

./sgminer –algorithm neoscrypt –url stratum+tcp://strat.dnb.io:3031 -u myworker -p mypassword

• SGminer starts working (or “hashing”) with its default values.

In a next post, I’ll be covering how to tune SGminer settings in order to improve its efficiency. In the meantime, reading SGminer manual is recommended.

 

To use SGminer on Linux, follow these steps :
• Download a build of SGminer by clicking here.

• Extract the content of the archive.

• Open a terminal window.
(Dash or Applications > type terminal)

• Navigate to SGminer directory.

• Enter these two commands one at a time in the terminal :

export GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100
export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1

• Now launch SGminer using the basic following command in the Terminal :
(replace “myworker” and “mypassword” by the worker name and the worker password you chose while registering to the mining pool)

./sgminer –algorithm neoscrypt –url stratum+tcp://strat.dnb.io:3031 -u myworker -p mypassword

• SGminer starts working (or “hashing”) with its default values.

In a next post, I’ll be covering how to tune SGminer settings in order to improve its efficiency. In the meantime, reading SGminer manual is recommended.
