Will this run on Linux, and will it support it OpenCl?
@Tate-A Yes it runs on Linux but you have to compile it (https://github.com/Creepsky/creepMiner/wiki/Compilation-&-Installation).
And yes, OpenCL will be supported soon. If you have a NVidia GPU, you can use the CUDA version (only Windows for now, but soon Linux too).

Will you add a proxy feature like @Blago miner?

If you start a local HTTP server with "Start Server" : true and give him an URL with "serverUrl", you can configure the other miners like the miner with the server running on it is their pool and/or wallet.
It will forward all requests like getMiningInfo, submitNonce, getLastWinner and so on and respond the result back.

i see in the sample configuration file there is 2 different locations for plots is it configurable to 1 plot, and if so, can you please demonstrate with a sample how to do so.
@ZapbuzZ sure, here is an example:
Windows, single plot file:
"plots" : [ "C:\\Plots\\116160098794481202_1886208_411648_6144" ]
Windows, plot dir:
"plots" : [ "C:\\Plots" ]
Linux, single plot file:
"plots" : [ "~/Plots/116160098794481202_1886208_411648_6144" ]
Linux, plot dir:
"plots" : [ "~/Plots" ]
Maybe you find here some more informations: https://github.com/Creepsky/creepMiner/wiki/Setting-up-the-miner
Hope this helps
its great to see a CUDA implementation of burst mining & thanks for help

Can this be used for solo mining?

@Caretaker seems can't (yet)
@Caretaker Not yet.
I will release it together with the forward (proxy) function.
What is the maximum cache size this miner is designed to handle?
@ZapbuzZ what do you mean with cache?
ZapbuzZ last edited by
in the configuration settings it is predefined as 128mb just wondering if that can be increased and if so is there a maximum
@ZapbuzZ ah ok now I understand.
You can set it as high as you want, but it should be below your RAM capacity. Otherwise the OS will begin to swap and this is reaaaallly really slow.
If you want a little math:
maxBufferSizeMB * miningIntensity + maxBufferSizeMB * count of plot hard disks
but its not 100% correct.
what is miningintensity for ? (last question sorry)
@ZapbuzZ no problem, ask as much as you want
Mininig intensity is the amount of threads that are simultaneously checking plot chunks for nonces.
The more drives you have, the higher this value should be. There is a physical limit for your computer, but you have to find it by yourself. Depends on many factors like drive read speed, buffer size, CPU and RAM speed, and so on.
Ok, here is release 1.2.0
> forward (proxy) function > solo mining > passphrase en/decryption
Here are some additional informations:

yipii!-) just at the right time! trying to get the cuda miner to run!
@Creepsky Awesome, thanks for all your hard work in development and documentation.
