i am completely new to ether mining, recently attempted to mine some ether using my desktop. I came across a comprehensive guide from this link: https://www.cryptocompare.com/mining/guides/how-to-mine-ethereum/ and i followed every step mentioned. Everything was going smoothly. However, after the block got synchronised, i ran the ethminer -G command, DAG generation keep repeating (when it reaches 100%, it restarted from 0% again). Has anyone encountered problems like this and how do you go about solving it? Appreciate all your help and thanks
This sounds like your graphics card is running out of memory, I had something similar when my miner was trying to use my onboard graphics card. You will need a graphics card with more than 4gb minimum to mine.
