I have an ethereum miner up and going for about 24 hours now. For the first 15 hours or so I saw the following text repeated on the screen (each time updating only the timestamp).
23:17:27.282|gpuminer0 workloop 1 #6f9a4b23... #6f9a4b23... 23:17:27.342|gpuminer1 workloop 1 #6f9a4b23... #6f9a4b23... 23:17:27.763|gpuminer2 workloop 1 #6f9a4b23... #6f9a4b23... 23:17:28.120|gpuminer3 workloop 1 #6f9a4b23... #6f9a4b23...
However I woke up this morning (so about 15 hours passed total) and the output changed such that only the hash changed to something like this
21:52:56.111|gpuminer0 workloop 1 #5e57d24f.. #5e57d24f... 21:52:56.156|gpuminer1 workloop 1 #5e57d24f.. #5e57d24f... 21:52:56.212|gpuminer2 workloop 1 #5e57d24f.. #5e57d24f... 21:52:56.678|gpuminer3 workloop 1 #5e57d24f.. #5e57d24f...
I had assumed this meant I mined a block while I slept. However when I went to my account it didn't have any additional ether in it and i could find no signs of any mined blocks on my account. Sadly my scroll buffer is too shallow to scroll back and actually see if I mined a block.
So any ideas? Does the hash update on the output even when you don't mine a block? Or did I mine a block and somehow it didn't make it into my account and got lost due to bad configuration or something?
So I finally saw the notification that I did in fact successfully mine a block. The block I mined can be seen here: https://www.etherchain.org/block/960905
What is confusing is apparently the block mined went to miner 0x0000* instead of to my own account. What is even weirder is that I am running the miner as follows:
geth --rpc --rpccorsdomain localhost --etherbase '0xblahblahblah'& ethmine -G
and when I go into geth to confirm the coinbase address it is set correctly to my own address. I check using:
So why is it still using the 0x0000 miner?
