It's not pool related. There is (and has been for some time) an error in the most recent coding of GUIminer.

You can stay with BTCguild, but I would recommend you switch to CGminer. It's been running non-stop for 10 days for me (on a different pool) and I'm loving it. Provides all the information and settings I need.

If you really want to start running p2pool, shoot me a PM and I can walk you through how to get it going with cgminer.

I can help you


Im running p2pool on windows7 ultimate.32bit you need to enable rpc in the bitcoin.conf and install python,twisted ,zode and some other files.I will attach the files if you *email removed*

*edit: I would suggest using PMs vs posting an email address publicly.

I don't know what the mhash/sec on that card is, but I found that when p2pool is having a good day and you're actually getting work units, you'll make +5% on what you normally make at a pool with fees. But the pool is growing greatly in size and it's no longer as efficient to run a small miner since the payout depends on the last number of shares in 24 hours and the shares are 300 difficulty shares as opposed to 1 difficulty on essentially every other pool. With my 1 difficulty shares, I get ~ 345/hour. On p2pool, I was getting one (1) share roughly every 55 minutes. And the variation and payouts for me were not cutting it.

I've since changed pools.

I do not think a 4650 would be worth the electricity to run it. You pretty much need a 5xxx-7xxx ati/amd to be worthwhile.
