GPU miner for siacoin in go Fork of github.com/SiaMining/gominer with poolmod3 patch merged

All available opencl capable GPU's are detected and used in parallel.

Installation from source

Prerequisites

  • golang (NOT gccgo) version 1.4.2 or above, check with go version
  • opencl libraries on the library path
  • gcc

Ubuntu 14.04 standard repositories only have golang 1.3, so it is recommended to install version 1.5.1 from the ethereum ppa.

add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum
sudo apt-get update
apt-get install -y git ocl-icd-libopencl1 opencl-headers golang
go get github.com/nerdralph/gominer-nr

Run

gominer

Usage:

  -H string
        siad host and port (default "localhost:9980")
  -Q string
        Query string
  -I int
        Intensity (default 28)
  -E string
        Exclude GPU's: comma separated list of devicenumbers
  -cpu
        If set, also use the CPU for mining, only GPU's are used by default
  -v    Show version and exit

See what intensity gives you the best hashrate.
