I’m not making any progress.
I downloaded latest version v0.10.1.0, extracted all contents to desktop and deleted the folder
Opened a new terminal window, changed directory to Desktop and entered --start-mining Woxxxxx --spendkey xxxxxxxxx
Received the following errors:
|2021-09-02 03:54:01.851|F Error starting server: Failed to bind IPv4 (set to required)
|2021-09-02 03:54:01.851|I Deinitializing core…

|2021-09-02 03:54:01.856|E Exception in main! Failed to initialize p2p server.
I type status in wownerod terminal and get this:
Height: 349357/349357 (100.0%) on mainnet, not mining, net hash 119.23 MH/s, v19, 12(out)+0(in) connections, uptime 0d 0h 4m 49s
So I’m still not mining.
I guess the complication of this stuff is why I sold my ASIC miners in 2015, if I only could have figured that out then and not given up I’d have waaaaay more BTC.
I did notice a message in wownerod after syncing:
You are now synchronized with the network. You may now start wownero-wallet-cli.
tried running wownero-wallet-cli, moved my wallet file to desktop and entered the wallet name with no luck. Should I be attempting to run this wownero-wallet-cli or is the “–start-mining Woxxxxx --spendkey xxxxxxxxx” the optimal way to go?
Anyway please help, I would really like to understand how to cpu/gpu mine all sorts of coins. Getting this to work is a first step.
If I can succeed in getting this to run it’ll give me some confidence.
