CPU Miner Just Stays Stuck at Starting...

I have double checked the pool address and that it's up and running and entered my wallet address but I can't get the thing to start. Not sure what it could be hung up on. This is a Cryptonight/XMR pool and I'm running on a MacBook Pro Mid 2015, OSX El Capitan

Any ideas?


  • I'd recommend using xmr-stak at the command line rather than the CPU miner MacMiner has built in as xmr-stak is newer and more efficient. I compiled xmr-stak separately as all the CPU miners in MacMiner are forks of poolers original cpu miner and they all work the same way but xmr-stak works differently.
