Hi, aim new to this and a little bit confused. Is the link in the previous post real or fake ?
I thought macminer can only be downloaded as mentioned in the tutorial from here:

Thanks for answering

Hi, looks like 2 different versions to me. Although, if anyone has tested the other version mentioned in the link I'd also like to know

I have the following issue.

Anyone has an idea??

The other failure I get is "End of file" when I try different settings

Thanks so much for this guide. I just found it and think I'm pretty close to getting GPU and CPU mining running on older Mac running 10.14.6. I'm using the Unmineable pool and my CPU worker shows jobs getting accepted and shows up on my Unmineable stats page. My GPU miner isn't quite working though. It appears to be running but I'm not seeing any jobs getting accepted and it's not showing on my Unmineable stats page. I've let it run for up to twelve hours with no jobs accepted.

Does anyone see anything weird in here that might be causing me a problem? Also, can I do dual GPU and CPU mining with one config.json file? Currently I just have two copies of XMRIG, each in a separate folder with their own JSON file. Could that be causing the problem?
