I don't care about profitability even in the least. I just want to try CPU mining as a benchmark. I compiled bfgminer with CPU mining enabled (via ./configure parameters) however when I try to run it with this feature, pressing the M and + keys, bfgminer is unable to find the CPU as a mining device. Then I compiled cgminer, and its minerd seems unable to even talk with bitcoin-qt. Any ideas?

  • Are you running bitcoin-qt with the -server option? Otherwise it won't be accessible for RPC. – Pieter Wuille Jun 10 at 23:12
  • When I add -server and -rest I can get minerd to connect. But these don't help bfgminer or cgminer to connect. – erolll Jun 13 at 14:34
