Trouble getting my CPU to mine
« on: October 30, 2013, 07:10:34 PM »

I have a couple machines that I am mining on, and am using the CPU on all but the one.  Everytime I attempt to launch my CPU miner scrypt it launches and quits right away.  On every other machine ive tried, the launcher works fine and mines first time I hit launch.  The only common denominator I can come up with is the one machine I cannot get working is my only AMD powered machine, the others being intel. 

Can someone please clue me in as to what I am missing?  My scrypt and other info is below, thank you.

CPU: AMD FX-6100 Black edition Socket AM3

Cpu Miner:

minerd -a scrypt -o stratum+tcp:// -u MyName.1 -p XXXXX -t 4

Litecoin CPU mining is no longer profitable. If you have an AMD GPU in a desktop computer you can mine with that. However, most folks build a custom desktop rig (with an open case design) to keep the graphics cards cool for mining. Check out the guides for more information here:

I'd also recommend using this calculator to determine how profitable mining will be for you: [size=78%][/size]
