I just started mining within the past week on my laptop but I am trying to set up 2 dedicated mining servers to run 24/7. I've been using UfaSoft's CPUMiner on Windows 8 on the laptop, but I cant seam to get it to work on either of my servers.
I am running a Dell Dimension 433c with a 600 MHz Pentium Pro with 256 MG RAM & a Dell Dimension L1000R with a Pentium III again with 256 MB RAM both with Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS x86 installed.
I downloaded the source code for both UfaSofts CPU Miner and CGMiner directly from the developer's website, downloaded all the dependencies needed for a rig without any GPUs and did a #make install for both.
With UfaSoft I keep getting Error 80072550 when ever I try to mine. With CGMiner, It won't initialise and says that all devices are disabled. A friend of mine told me that it was picking up a GPU and was then disabling the CPU miner as a response but I think he may not know what he's talking about.
Any help that I can get would be greatly appreciated.
