" JSON-RPC non method decode failed " & Worker Not Detected by Pool

Hi FabulousPanda,

Thank you for your great work!

Unfortunately, I've begun to run into a problem. I began successfully using MacMiner on my iMac with an AMD card last night but after changing coins, i'm no longer able to achieve any mining whatsoever. Here is a snippet from my log:

20s: 12.2 avg: 12.2 u:  0.0 kh/s | A:0 R:0+0(none) HW:0/none
20s: 12.1 avg: 12.2 u:  0.0 kh/s | A:0 R:0+0(none) HW:0/none
20s: 11.7 avg: 12.1 u:  0.0 kh/s | A:0 R:0+0(none) HW:0/none

[2018-01-02 14:36:58] JSON-RPC non method decode failed: (null)

Previously, the 0.0 kh/s entries had positive numbers and my worker was detected. Now I only receive the message above interspersed with occasional JSON-RPC non method decode failed messages.

Here is my LTC config:

{
  "pools" : [
    {
      "url" : "ftc-neo.give-me-coins.com:3336",
      "user" : "@@@@",
      "pass" : "@@@@"
    }
    ]

}

Questions:

  1. Do you have any advice for getting back on track?
  2. Is there someway to access the bfgminer documentation? I'd like to know what the various notifications are supposed to mean.

  • Hey, you're mining Feathercoin right? That uses neoscrypt not the scrypt that Litecoin uses so you'll need to set up for that instead which uses the sgminer backend which itself is half untested so I'd appreciate feedback on how you get on with it, as there are other backends I could use for neoscrypt if you run in to problems with that one.

    There isn't really one place you can find documentation on everything output in the log, your best bet is to duckduckgo the specific line you'd like to decipher.
