1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Easy Beginner Guide : How to mine LTC + SMOS@LtcRabbit Profit switching LTC pool on: February 04, 2014, 01:07:07 PM


Short Intro about LiteCoins

Litecoin is a peer-to-peer Internet currency that enables instant payments to anyone in the world. It is based on the Bitcoin protocol but differs from Bitcoin in that it can be efficiently mined with consumer-grade hardware. Litecoin provides faster transaction confirmations (2.5 minutes on average) and uses a memory-hard, scrypt-based mining proof-of-work algorithm to target the regular computers with GPUs most people already have. The Litecoin network is scheduled to produce 84 million currency units.
One of the aims of Litecoin was to provide a mining algorithm that could run at the same time, on the same hardware used to mine Bitcoins. With the rise of specialized ASICs for Bitcoin, Litecoin continues to satisfy these goals. It is unlikely for ASIC mining to be developed for Litecoin until the currency becomes more widely used.

For more information, visit the Litecoin page.

What we need to mine LiteCoins.

A Ati/Nvidia Gpu Card or a Cpu with Running OS
Mining Software (GuiMiner) or Standalone OS
LiteCoin Wallet
LiteCoin Pool (LtcRabbit)

Nr.1

Downloads Litecoin wallet :
Download The LiteCoin Client for your OS from https://litecoin.org/



Install Litecoin for your OS and start it and wait for updates, your wallet is now ready.

Nr.2

VERY IMPORTANT ONLY FOR ATI USERS !!!


Many people skip this 2rd step, and they end up having extremely bad results...   So, here we go, with bold letters.
Please ensure you have the following dependencies installed
• AMD APP SDK: http://developer.amd.com/tools/hc/AMDAPPSDK/downloads/Pages/default.aspx
• Latest AMD drivers: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx

or

Known working for all cards AMD driver (12.Cool:
12.8 32-bit
12.8 64-bit
AVOID 12.10 DRIVERS, THEY SEEM TO BREAK LITECOIN PERFORMANCE. 13.X SEEM TO BE OKAY.

Update your Drivers Install Amd app sdk then one simple reboot.



For Nvidia Download CudaMiner

Nr.4

On A running Windows System we can use CGMiner LTCRabbit V1.
Download CGMiner LTCRabbit V1 fork for mining Litecoins : http://www.multiupload.nl/WYGWSS0K9B
or
Download from http://download.ltcrabbit.com/CGMiner-LTCRabbit-V1.zip if you dont trust me but no sample batch files.

ATI = CGMINER
NV = CUDAMINER dont have a nv card but steps are the same.

Download unpack ánd run test batch > start_mining_ltcrabbit_slot_1.bat  > gpu0 > pcieslot 1



After a short test give it 10 mins you can edit the sample batch file with your worker + pass.
Accepted mean its works Wink and you can change you worker too your own worker.

If you have multi gpus you can test slot_2-4 too.

start_mining_ltcrabbit_slot_1.bat >> use gpu 0
start_mining_ltcrabbit_slot_2.bat >> use gpu 1
start_mining_ltcrabbit_slot_3.bat >> use gpu 2
start_mining_ltcrabbit_slot_4.bat >> use gpu 3

And Yes you can run all cards at the same.

Now Change your worker name + pass into the batch files 1-4 with your own Worker from LtcRabbit.

.\cgminer-3.7.2-windows\cgminer.exe --scrypt -u yourworkeruser.namehere -p yourpasswordhere -o stratum+tcp://eu.ltcrabbit.com:3333 --gpu-platform 0 -d 0 -w 256 -v 1 -I 18 -g 1 -l 1 -T  --thread-concurrency 6144

Please find the correct settings for you specific card here http://litecoin.info/Mining_Hardware.

You definitely have to find the correct values for:
intensity (-I) Please lower intensity if you experience problems.
thread-concurrency
gpu-thread (-g)
worksize (-w)

Save it now and close all other cgminers ,run batch file again.

Be happy with some ltcoins.
