I've been using this page to try and figure this stuff out: http://cpucoinlist.com/how-to/mine-darkcoin/ I'm having a hard time getting a miner set up on my CPU - first, I kept getting the 'stratum authentication failed' message over and over; and then I eventually changed the 'NAME' part of the string to the simple 'minerd' label as opposed to 'the correct miner version for your processor'. Suddenly the screen started to run like it was a combo fast scroll/static - is that how it is supposed to be? I would think you could read what is going on on the screen; but things are moving so fast - is that how it looks when it's working right? The directions are confusing for writing out the 'line' - minerd-NAME -a X11 -o stratum+tcp://POOL-ADDRESSORT -u Weblogin.Worker -p WorkerPass pause It would be REALLY HELPFUL if a 'sample' line was written out correctly so that you knew exactly WHICH words needs to be REPLACED and how to format them. For instance, do you NEED the period to be in the weblogin.worker part? Thanks for the help.
