To experiment with Ethereum, I set up a fresh Ubuntu 15.04 installation on one of my machines. It has a Nvidia GTX 770 GPU, so I decided to go for eth
instead of geth
(built in GPU mining). Benchmark returns about 7MH.
I proceeded to create an account according to https://ethereum.org/cli
It seems to start successfully, between tons of p2p message I'm getting
gpuminer0 workLoop 1 #00000000 ... #00000000
. After a night of mining, my account balance is still 0. How can I verify that the miner is actually generating any progress?
Did noticed something odd: Upon starting eth
, I noticed that it reads out three keys from ~/.web3/keys/.
(there is only 1 account in the array)
Is this correct? I thought that coinbase should point to the same UUID as the account UUID?
Some other notes:
1) Generation of the genesis.json file failed for me. Got a few 'API does not respond' errors and then a Python stack trace. I used a pregenerated genesis.json.
2) I noticed a few mistakes in the documentation, which could confuse newbies. Where should I report these?
