How to Mine on Mac

caramelocakecaramelocake Member Posts: 1
Dear Ethereum forums,

I have two Apple computers - one is an iMac with i7 and Nvidia GTX 780M, and the other is a Macbook Air i5 with Intel HD Graphics 6000.

How do I get started mining Ethereum with my graphics cards? I have installed Homebrew but I don't see what the next step is. Where does the mined ethereum go - what wallet does it enter? Is there any way to limit % of graphics card power used? What hashrates should I expect?

I'd be very grateful for any advice or guidance.

    @caramelocake Before the anti-Mac crowd jump on this, as an all-platform user I'll "help".

    1) You can't mine on an Intel HD integrated graphics chip, period. Uses shared system RAM, not super-fast GDDR5 gpu RAM that's needed, and the miner won't recognize it.

    2) If your GTX780M has 2GB, it's possible but not going to be very good (low, low hash rate). The DAG file (1.4GB) has to fit entirely in GPU memory, even so the 7xx series won't mine too well. 3-4GB GPU RAM is minimum these days. Yes, you probably could mine on it, just don't expect much. And don't let anybody tell you it will "melt" — you can't hurt it, but just remember heat over time shortens the life of all silicon-based lifeforms. SMCFanControl still works on El Cap, so you can crank the fans up.

    3) The only real option on the Mac for mining is a 2008-2013 Mac Pro you can put 6-pin-only cards in (like an R7 370 or GTX950/960). I'm about to do this on a 2008 w/370's when they show up — stay tuned, I'll post something next week.

    If you follow the directions here
    https://github.com/ethereum/homebrew-ethereum
    which will add the miner you need. Again, OpenCL only so it's not going to work very well on your GTX, would be better on the Radeon iMacs. The CUDA build of @Genoil's miner isn't compiling on El Capitan at the moment...

    Any news on how your 6 pin cards went?

    I have got everything up and running on my Mac pro 1.1 from 2006 patched to run el capitan. I have for now resisted running windows or GNU/Linux on this machine, with refind (refit evolution) to take the easy route as it were, but the lack of OSX support, generally here, must be alienating a lot of Mac users.

    Ethereum is damn near impossible to build on many non-ubuntu linux varients too (at least, it was when I tried a while ago). A lack of mac support is hardly surprising.

    @bluebox @Oxff Following the guide here https://forum.ethereum.org/discussion/729/mining-ether-on-a-mac comment no2 of @Oxff I keep getting the abort trap 6 message in the second terminal window.

    Took an age to download the block chain, the wallet all works although I have ended up with 5 accounts, it ocurred to me over night does one mine on a new account each time one engages the miner? as when I rand the ethminer -G after following the new geth account step in comment 1 of https://forum.ethereum.org/discussion/729/mining-ether-on-a-mac The second window actually produced metrics and a hash rate:smile:

    I have downloaded NVIDIA cuda dmg and installed it so I am now woondering what I am doing wrong? apart from just putting refind ion this machine and having either a GNU/Linux or Windows partition. As MAc is more difficult I am sticking with it, I have a cloud mining contract with Genesis which I am quite happy with I am doing this as I want to get into building some Dapps but wanted to learn what mining was about as a sort of familiarity excercis i.e its just for kicks:wink:

    well looks like you have setup solo mining, but you need a lot more MHz to be able to mine anything in reasonble time, for a quick and easy start look here for instructions: http://www.ethermine.rocks/how/

    well looks like you have setup solo mining, but you need a lot more MHz to be able to mine anything in reasonble time, for a quick and easy start look here for instructions: http://www.ethermine.rocks/how/

    @ethermine_rocks I'll look at those I can not get the benchmarking to give me a hash rate readout, I'll see how the link to your instructions helps with that. All the best Rog :)

    Just looked again, as I do not know my hash rate I can't fill this out with a hash rate,

    Connect to pool
    ethminer -G -F http://ethermine.rocks/[email protected]@OptionalRigName

    ethminer -G -F http://ethermine.rocks/?miner=[HASHRATE IN MHASH]@[ADDRESS]@[OPTIONAL RIG NAME]
    (without brackets)
    -G means mining on GPU, if you want try cpu, just do NOT put G Minimal hashrate = 0.01 MHash

    can the ether adress be a myetherwallet adress or does it have to be a mist wallet adress?
  • ethermine_rocksethermine_rocks Member Posts: 228
    2. Replace the wallet address in .bat file with your ethereum wallet address,
    3. Run ethminer -G -M in CMD and divide the max result by 1000000 to get HASHRATE
    4. Replace HASHRATE with the number you got in step 3

    it does not need to be your mist wallet address, can be any ether wallet address

  • RogerGLewisRogerGLewis SwedenMember Posts: 17
    @ethermine_rocks the zipped exe file will not open on my mac not sure if it would open under wine but would rather not pfaff about with that. Running step 3 stalls at creating miner buffer 1 , how long would one expect that to take?
  • ethermine_rocksethermine_rocks Member Posts: 228
    Can you open rar files or 7zip files? I will post for you in a few minutes on mega, be sure to del EThash files before running ethminer instance so it starts clean
  • RogerGLewisRogerGLewis SwedenMember Posts: 17
    yes i can open both f those its the .exe files i can not open once unzipped. del EThash ( I do not know what this means. Thanks for helping Cheers Rog

    your right, these are windows exe files, please excuse my ignorace, please do this, for pool mining you dont really need geth, you can leave it installed if you want a local wallet address, if not feel free to uninstall, all you need is ethminer. you should have a DAG files (check here to see where https://forum.ethereum.org/discussion/2114/where-are-my-config-files-go-and-cpp) so you need to first search and delete all DAG files as they are probably corrupt, looking at pics above you didnt wait long enough for geth to sync completly with ethereum network, sync takes a loooonnnggg time even on fast Internet connections, took almost 2 days when I tried it (Internet speed 30 down/ 5Mb uplink).

    to reinstall ethminer if you want, first remove it completly and then look at this link here, it should help
    http://ethereum.stackexchange.com/questions/2602/is-there-a-way-to-mine-ether-on-a-mac

    after you delete DAG files you can open command promt and execute commands you found in bat file, it should start and say generating DAG file 0% 1% etc. this takes about 20min maybe at most. It just downloads 1.4GB file and starts mining. This is because the pool already has a geth connection running on pool and is already synced with ethereum network so you can start mining right away. Please let me know if you successed or if you need further help.

    @ethermine_rocks Hi Grabbing dag now for etherminerocks, lets see what happens. I deleted the DAGS and also
    added my etherwallet address
    ethminer -G -F http://ethermine.rocks/[email protected]@rogerelcapitan

    I estimated a hash rate of 18.1 looking at what others get off the GTX 960 I think it might get more hashes than that how critical is it to be exact with hash rate if one underestimates is that OK. Let youknow how it goes All the best Rog

    P.S on the mist wallet I wnated to run a node as I wanted to be some sort of service to thenetwork, I have 11 peers connected right now, hopefully blockchain download speeds will improve with more nodes. Here in Sweden most places have fast web connections I have 2 meg up and 20 meg down over copper in the middle of no where, My connection is considered pretty slow in these parts, It does for me though.

    Thats the current stae of play, how long will this stay at that level:smile:

    To do first Run ethminer -G -M and divide the max result by 1000000 how long does that process usuall take assuming the newly downloaded dag is in place?
  • ethermine_rocksethermine_rocks Member Posts: 228
    running ethminer -G -M will only simulate downloading and creating a DAG file and hashing, when its done it will give you test results min/inner/max. take the max value and divide by 1000000. even this result doesnt need to be the real hashing speed of your card, I have a R7 370 card that hashes just fine but just wont complete the test command at all :-) but once connected to the pool (you will see i 15:00:04|main B-) Submitted and accepted. look down I have R9 380 hashing) you will your card speed at pool and can correct in ethminer line. You should try to use the correct value because the pool will adjust difficulty for your card according to hashrate so if hashrate wrong you could end up with a number of invalid shares.

    if it hasn't started to show hashrate yet try to restart your computer, delete the DAG files again and run the ethminer

    re installing the whole shooting match will delete dag too and see if we come up trumps, hopefully on the cusp of success now! cheers Rog :)

    ok, dont worry, we've all been through this at the beggining. This being a mac does complicate things a bit because of lack of proper support for macos but hey once you get it working the reward for success will be even greater. keep up the good work and feel free to let me know if I can assist you further. I will do my best.

    you have been a great help, I just e mailed a freind in Stockholm and suggested he join the Rocks pool too, we will be talking later so look out for both of us, Anders has a pretty snazzy two GPU superduper thing he bought for our ethereum community currency project, thats why I have been trying to pick up a broader knowledge of all aspects of the ethereum experience as it were.
    Have a great evening and thanks again. Rog

    thank you very much, all the extra MHz at the pool will help it grow and is very much aprecciated! looking forward to see your wallet address do some successful mining at the pool!

    MINER IS INACTIVE
    or
    It seems your ethminer does NOT have function called eth_submithashrate. To get valid and reliable statistics please update your ethminer to lastest version. This affects only statistics, it does NOT affect revenue! If you have any concerns please feel free to contact us.


    Still do not seem top be showing up am i still cuda disabled?:neutral:

    No. You have 0 Mhz so no submitted shares are registered at pool and the pool cant register your address. Looks like an issue with ethminer. I dont have a Mac to test on but let me look for further and do some tests. I will get back to you later. No worries!

    Hi, I have been busy getting 64 bit windows to run on my 2006 mac pro , long story short. I should now be able to do the quick star on your site but the page no longer exists where your instructions were previously. They were very easy to follow. Have youclosed the pool? the site redirects here now.http://www.ethermine.rocks/#/
