    ADL = AMD Display Library, since you're using an Nvidia card you can't use ADL functions.

    Why parameter - I isn't regulated ?
    - I 8 - a constant ?

    I am having bin files between booting. is this from errors?
    from the blake256.cl, it is making .bin files

    just found make config in cgminer! haha

    so in cgminer --blake256 --benchmark
    [S}sttings
    [W]rite config file
    You now have a cgminer config

    You can change it on the command line - if you don't, then it's automatically configured at runtime,

    I'd like to show my hashrates, but every time I test, it seems there's a new cgminer change to integrate >.<

    .cl is OpenCL and the OpenCL compiler generates a binary/kernel .bin that the GPU runs.

    Something is seriously wrong there, no accepted for GPU 0 and only rejects for GPU 1 ?

    Linux 64 bit.
    Im encountering a problem on Kubuntu 14.04 with a R9 380.

    Whenever i run cgminer and change my fan speed setting to a fixed number, upon quitting or restarting cgminer, my desktop freezes and i have to hard reset my pc using the power button.

    Mining on testnet with an R9 380 and I get the 1.20 Gh/s average, seems normal.

    But on an FX 8350 and Windows 10 x64 Pro, cgminer.exe uses 28% of the CPU. Is this normal?

    Latest v0.0.3 cgminer for Decred.

    What's your CPU utilization using cgminer on Windows and which CPU you have?

    Will there be a ccminer? I ask this because mining with cgminer puts nvidia miners at a big disadvantage. Here are some numbers, it also cover why we don't have a ccminer for decred yet:

    I tried the cgminer & ccminer both & they give me

    970 1.52 GH/s on ccminer & 1.11GH/s on cgminer
    750ti 530MH/s in ccminer & 431 MH/s on cgminer

    so there is 75-80% loss in hashrate. Also as i remember, ccminer was running at much lower TDP% as shown in Afterburner, ~80% while cgminer was using 98-100% power. Considering all this i think there is a big disadvantage & some potential for optimizing ccminer for decred, unless the modification required for decred somehow lower the hashrate. But i guess ccminer devs are too busy taking potshots at each other, so we will have to make do with what we have or wait for decred team to release something. Some devs think it will be unprofitable and want to force that opinion on nvidia miners despite the demand for a miner.

    Nice ! :)

    Be sure to NOT mine on a pool with that power.. You can easily get the blocks yourself, no need to stick that power into a pool

    Is it already possible to with tis ? because when test net came out i wasn't able to mine to my main computer.

    I had to put dcrlt on every machine. And that's a lot of work though.

    If you are mining in your internal network with all that machines, you can easily have one "main computer" run the wallet and all your rigs connect to his main computer to mine, yes, thats perfectly possible.
