The latest GMiner 2.00 miner adds support for the ProgPoW algorithm used by the Super Zero (SERO) project. SERO’s use of the ProgPow mining algorithm is not new,but apparently it has lately caught more attention of users and hence more happening around the project lately. There is a catch however, the ProgPow support of Gminer requires you to have the latest Nvidia CUDA Toolkit installed or you will be getting the “Failed to initialize NVRTC library” error message wen trying to run the miner software for mining SERO. This is a few gigabytes of installation package, though in theory you can get the smaller network installer and select to install only the Runtime Libraries and not the full package that includes unnecessary data as far as mining is concerned and no actual CUDA software development is required… nevertheless it is bothersome requirement for a mining software. Older algorithms supported by the miner should work fine without the CUDA Toolkit, so it is a requirement only if you want to mine SERO with the latest GMiner.
The GMiner miner software was originally only an Nvidia GPU miner, although some algorithms are already supported on AMD GPUs as well. Do note that GMiner is a closed source miner for Nvidia and AMD GPUs with binaries available for both Windows and Linux, there is a 2% developer fee built-in the software.
