I've tried overnight mining and have had no luck. I first created an account using
geth account new. Then I use
geth --rpc to stay in sync with the blockchain and
ethereum -G to start the minining process. I can see the program create the DAG and then proceed to mine at about 5MH/s.
The problem is that when I use
geth attach and check the amount I have mined it always returns zero (eth.getBalance (eth.coinbase) ). I mine for about 7 hours at a time and have no luck. Is this normal?
Also is it normal to not see your wallet/address when searching at etherchain.org?
