would like to mine litecoins. need a little help :S
« on: November 23, 2013, 04:29:16 PM »
hi everyone, iam Jamie I used to mine bitcoins when it was possible for your average guy. only made around 0.13 as I discovered cyrptocurrency a bit to late to make lots from bitcoin.
anyway I would like to mine litecoins, I have a litecoin wallet, I have a miner (cgminer 3.7.2) I have a guild/pool, but whenever I try to start the script on the miner after entering all the correct information,
the miner comes up with failed pool and something else then closes the program really quickly. so fast infact I can hardly read what it h as failed on.! Am I missing something here or should it be working the way ive set it up? and help, feedback would be very much appreciated.

hi,
i am  sorry i can`t help but i mine at mupool.com and the support helps me very quickly with my cg miner config problems.
you can sign in and ask them and the fee is very low so you can mine in this pool as i did it. A good support is better than gold today ;)

Check that you have entered your pool's web address and port correctly.

Not sure if you are on Windows or Linux, but in Linux you can add the "-T" switch to the cgminer command line to get more verbose output.

You need to run cgminer from the command prompt if running windows or from the terminal session if running linux. You will then be shown the exit error to be able to see if the problem was the mining pool address or your parameters. I suspect that as it exits straight away, your parameters are giving the error. It should attempt to connect for longer before exiting if the mining pool address is wrong.  Try using the default parameters of --intensity 13 , this will work if you have the correct drivers installed. If it still fails, then you need to get the latest drivers for your card installed on your computer.

I have a step-by-step guide here which may be useful if you are still having trouble

Might also be worth you posting you command syntax here so that we can see if there are any problems.
