How to solo mine any Altcoin - Solo mining new and low ...

PSA: bfgminer doesn't work with bitcoin classic via GBT

Bfgminer doesn't work "out of the box" with bitcoin classic nodes via GBT. Before you get your pitchforks, its not like Luke-jr snuck some code in recently to cause an incompatibility. He is, however, unwilling to make it work as he doesn't "support altcoins" (even though bfgminer has had support for scrypt ASICs for quite some time). Still waiting for a reply from Luke-jr on whether he will merge support for bitcoin classic if someone else maintains that piece of code. Hopefully he will, as I think it would look bad on classic to have separate mining software. At that point it looks more like an altcoin. I won't speculate as to whether or not this is something Luke-jr would like to achieve.
I'm no developer, but from what I can tell its a problem with block version checks in bfgminer or libblkmaker. Shouldn't be too hard to change.
I also think this ought to get some visibility from people who can actually change the code without breaking it. If any large miner is running miners with bfgminer (or potentially anything based on libblkmaker) and it just immediately doesn't work with bitcoin classic, I doubt they're going to bother to figure this all out themselves. They'll just switch back to Core.
Note that cgminer works fine, (but is unfortunately not stable on my setup). And I was honestly not trolling Luke-jr on this issue. I really would like to be solo mining on a bitcoin classic node.

Setting up solo mining just targeting USB erupters? PC/Mac?

I am having trouble trying to get solo mining started on either my PC or Mac. I have a PC set up that is using three 7950s that are mining Litecoins. I'd like to have my 2 USB erupters solo mining Bitcoins for fun on the same system. I have the drivers installed for the USB miners and my system recognizes them.
I am starting Bitcoin-QT as -server
My bitcoin.conf looks like this: listen=1 server=1 rpcuser=user rpcpassword=pass
I set up a BFG .bat like this: bfgminer.exe -o -O -u user -p pass
When I launch that, BFG just crashes. I have also tried it with CGminer and that crashes also. I'd like to keep CGminer on the cards Litecoin mining and use BFG for the USB miners.
How do I get BFG to work just with the USBs? Also, do I need to input a Bitcoin address somewhere so if I did solve something I get the payout?
Sometimes, I do more work on my Mac and am also trying to set up the USBs to mine on a Mac using Diablo miner. Will that work the same way as the PC setup once we get it figured out?
Thanks for any help.

Solo Mining Success Story. When our ZEC Solo mining pool just launched, it needed some testing. We didn’t have enough our own ZEC mining rigs back then, so the only option left was renting rigs at Nicehash. Block of ZEC – 10 coins ($2400), so to find one block we had to spend about $2400. Quite sad, but we had no other options. "BFGMiner supports solo mining with any GBT-compatible bitcoin node (such as bitcoind). To use this mode, you need to specify the URL of your bitcoind node using the usual pool options (--url, --userpass, etc), and the --coinbase-addr option to specify the Bitcoin address you wish to receive the block rewards mined." Bitcoin Core doesn't directly allow for stratum miners to connect, you need a middleman proxy to translate the two mining methods used by Bitcoin Core and cgminer on the Antminer S3. This is simplest with bfgminer. Finally, use as the server and the username and password you chose as the credentials to connect CGMiner or BFGMiner to the Bitcoin_Core client and have it mine. Therefore, this is how the process of Solo Mining takes place to do mining as a solo task. Run BFGminer on the same computer as Bitcoin Core with the following configuation, it won't need any further settings altered or configured (it gets the RPC password automatically on launch). bfgminer --stratum-port=3333. BFGminer will launch, and retrieve the information needed for solo mining.
