Hey all,
I was trying to setup my gpu last nite to mine some drk.
Was following the instructions on drkpool.com but was not able to get sgminer to work
I'm using this command line:
sgminer -k darkcoin -o stratum+tcp://drkpool.com:3333 -u ****** -p ***

and am getting the following errs:

Started sgminer 4.0.0
Error -11: Building Program (clBuildProgram)
Error compiling program for search.
Frontend phase failed compilation.
Error: Creating kernel search failed!
Failed to init GPU thread 0, disabling device 0
Restarting the GPU from the menu will not fix this.
Try restarting sgminer.

any help would be greatly appreciated...

tried 4 so far 4.0.0, 4.1.0 and 4.1.271 and 4.1.0_x11mod
the last one actually locks up no errs and screen freezes.
4.1 and 4.1271 both throw <share is above target> while 4.0 can't find the gpu as per first post...
driver pkg vs 14.10
catalyst 14.4

is it my card or just that these builds don't support it...
anything I can do without having to buy a different card??
thx for the reply fra55

Try with an older version of catalyst drivers, maybe 13.12 which works great for me. I own a Gigabyte 6850, which is almost old as your card, and got no problems so far

I'm having an identical problem with a GeForce GTX 260 so I'm not sure its a driver version issue???

I've been able to run CPU Miner without a problem but zero luck with sgminer so far.

I couldn't get a standard sgminer to work either. I get the same share above target error. There is a GUI sgminer at http://www.reviewoutlaw.com/how-to-mine-darkcoin-gui-friendly-simple-way-mining-dark-coin/ that has been working well for me.
You will have to edit your Start batch file in the folder that says sgminer with "
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
timeout /t 4
sgminer.exe
Good luck
Let me know if you get the standard sgminer to work

I was actually able to get it to work.
Not sure if the builds were the issue but got this one from here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=475795.0
Last link (DRK only) and it works fine...

The .bat file I put together looks like this:
Code:
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
sgminer.exe -k darkcoin -o stratum+tcp://drkpool.com:3333 -u user.worker1 -p anypass -I 18 -g 4 -w 128
works fine just can't use the pc for anything else while mining... lags so bad...
was getting 960kh/s on the pool side... not sure if that's high or low...
