GPU Mining

Nvidia/CUDA

Currently, the best option is Protovist's patch of ccminer on Ubuntu.
Instructions:
  • Ubuntu 16.04 is known to work.
  • Install the Zen Protocol wallet.
  • Obtain the exact versions of CUDA (9.2.11-1) and openssl (1.1.1-pre8) needed:
1
sudo apt-key adv --fetch-keys http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu1604/x86_64/7fa2af80.pub
2
sudo apt update
3
sudo apt dist-upgrade
4
sudo apt install build-essential automake
5
wget https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu1604/x86_64/cuda-repo-ubuntu1604_9.2.88-1_amd64.deb
6
sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1604_9.2.88-1_amd64.deb
7
sudo apt install libcurl4-openssl-dev
8
sudo apt-get update
9
sudo apt-get install cuda
10
wget https://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.1.1-pre8.tar.gz
11
tar zxf openssl-1.1.1-pre8.tar.gz
12
cd openssl-1.1.1-pre8/
13
./config
14
make -j8
15
sudo make install
16
cd ..

  • Get the right version of ccminer:
1
git clone https://github.com/protovist/ccminer.git
2
cd ccminer
3
git checkout zenprotocol
4
./build.sh

  • Run the Zen Protocol client and create or import an account.
  • Run ccminer, pointing it to the Zen Protocol client, like this:
1
./ccminer -a zenprotocol -o 127.0.0.1:11567
Copied!
For a pool, change 127.0.0.1:11567 to the pool address.

AMD

Proper AMD mining support is still in development. Right now you need to compile your own Zen Protocol node.
Instructions:
1
cgminer --keccak -o http://127.0.0.1:11567
