Windows binaries for steem v0.5.0

in steem •  2 years ago

Now with faster mining!

I recently made a change that fixed the hash rate slowdown bug for the MinGW cross-compiled Windows build of steemd. (Note: this does not fix the slowdown for MSVC compiled versions.) I was able to get these changes in prior to the v0.5.0 release.

You can cross-compile v0.5.0 steemd and cli_wallet yourself if you have a Linux system by following my guide (now updated for v0.5.0 from Steemit's official steem repo).

Alternatively, you can download the compiled binaries from my GitHub repo.

The SHA256 of the zip file is:

6abdf06cc7e70fb787ced813fbc4aab1a06b1aac01c325d2de0ea74da6c59bff  steem-v0-5-0-windows.zip

Edit: I updated the binaries so that the cli_wallet is compiled with doxygen. So, help and gethelp commands work properly now.

OK I got the Windows miner working thanks to help from bhuz and pfunk! If you have issues, try downloading the blockchain provided by pfunk (valid for 7 days) http://www.fileconvoy.com/dfl.php?id=g80273aa357ce5a4299983357746969183a5edf248 and that fixed it for me and nextgencrypto.

If you have problems getting the miner to work you can go to the link below for help!

How to Mine Steem with Windows

Thanks for sharing this useful information.

Is there a good explanation on how to start mining on windows somewhere?

Basically just edit the config as instructed here (ignore everything else, just look at setting up config) ...

Then download the blockchain from here ...
http://www.fileconvoy.com/dfl.php?id=g80273aa357ce5a4299983357746969183a5edf248

Start the miner up, let it crash (most likely) and it will create the folders. Now go unzip the blockchain over the /database folder.

And you should be good to go! Startup steemd.exe and start mining! If you have problems, go into the slack channel and #mining

Thanks fheman! Btw I noticed in your config file below, the "" were missing around the witness name, that might have caused the problem I think.
