What's more annoying than miners buying up all the new cards? Buying up all the old cards!
I think it's both amazing and incredibly annoying that GPU stock issues have plagued the industry for this long. In the past we only had perhaps 2-3 months of availability issues due to mining farms expanding their operations. We all remember Polaris, don't we? The launch went well for two months, and then stocks got depleted as Polaris proved its mettle mining Ethereum. That time, it was only a three-month wait. Heck, the HD7970/HD7950/R9 280/R9 280X shortage wasn't as crazy as this. It was bad, but without CUDAMiner in the mix NVIDIA's cards were still an option. Today, we've had almost endless issues getting our rigs up and running. Polaris 20 has always had some kind of stock/pricing issue since it launched, and we've had a near-dry run of over nine months. This becomes a bigger headache when you notice that even older GPUs are being snapped up because they're still viable.
Radeon HD7950 - $65 a month at USD 12c/kWH
Radeon R9 280X - $71 a month at USD 12c/kWH
Radeon R9 390 - $96 a month at USD 12c/kWh
GeForce GTX 970 - $87 a month at USD 12c/kWH
GeForce GTX 980 Ti - $132 a month at USD 12c/kWH
How are we supposed to build rigs when even viable older cards get snapped up at their lower, second-hand prices, and then ROI in less than three months? Amazing. And annoying.
So then, I'm as you can probably guess, very new to the scene. Currently using my gaming computer to try out mining. However according to whattomine.com a gtx 1080 is supposed to get around 360MH/s for lbry, whilst I'm only getting 20. I'm currently using the Cudaminer and dual-mining ethereum and lbry at same time. Getting 20Mh/s for ethereum which seems to be normal. Using the Suprnova pool for lbry. Maybe some of you know why I'm getting such low hashrates and perhaps have a solution I could use? I'd be glad to give more information if necessary. Thanks in advance!
Edit: forgot to put in the title but on LINUX. Every little bit helps right? I thought I would do a nice thing and try to support the segwit cause. So I googled for a litecoin gpu miner program, but I can't seem to find a miner that works on linux for nvidia/cuda drivers. The litecoin wiki points me to a cudamineccminer program on github that is years old under the "cbuchner1" github account. When I try to compile that (because it only provides windows binaries) nvcc spits out an error about not knowing how to malloc (wtf), a google search pointed me to a forum where some random person commented that that error was on an obsolete version and pointed people to a new github repo for a ccminer-lyra program (wtf?). That also does not compile on linux and I get hundreds of "error: expected a ;" errors. Frankly this is turning into a bit of a joke. It took me less than 30 minutes to get up and running with full nodes and mining on both Ethereum and Monero. Meanwhile I can't even COMPILE the "recommended" litecoin cuda miner and I can't find any resources on the litecoin website. I've now wasted over an hour just trying to get a single miner working for my GPU. I'm a Java and not a C dev, but I think I'm pretty competent. This whole mining client situation is a joke though. Can anyone shed some light on where I am going wrong?
I reported an issue on webthree-umbrella because it is not possible to report a GitHub issue for the cudaminer-frontier fork. Are the two efforts coordinating so fixes in webthree-umbrella go to cudaminer-frontier, or so the NVidia/CUDA support in Genoil gets back to trunk? https://github.com/ethereum/webthree-umbrella/issues/71

The CUDA miner should work on GPUs with Compute 2.0 or later, but if you are having trouble running the CUDA miner you can try with the OpenCL one, the resulting hashrate should not be much different between the two implementations. Fast & Easy. Effective Ethereum mining speed is higher by 3-5% because of a completely different miner code - much less invalid and outdated shares, higher GPU load, optimized OpenCL code, optimized assembler kernels. ethminer. Ethereum miner with OpenCL, CUDA and stratum support. Ethminer is an Ethash GPU mining worker: with ethminer you can mine every coin which relies on an Ethash Proof of Work thus including Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Metaverse, Musicoin, Ellaism, Pirl, Expanse and others. This is the actively maintained version of ethminer. It originates from cpp-ethereum project (where GPU mining has ... ethminer is an OpenSource Ethereum GPU miner. It is actively maintained.
