So I got  the miner from here : (https://github.com/downloads/litecoin-project/litecoin/litecoin-0.6.3c-linux.tar.gz) (it's posted on the offical litecoin thread here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=47417.0).

But it doesn't provide instructions how to run it? I've tried typing 'minerd' and 'sudo minerd' with no luck. Double clicking it and selecting 'run in terminal' doesn't do anything either...

thank you Smiley

Right this is how you run it:

./minerd --syslog --config=./cfg.json
And NOT
minerd --syslog --config=/cfg.json

You can see your syslog (where it logs messages) at /var/log/syslog.
- Quick tip: use the command "tail -f /var/log/syslog" to automatically show new 'lines' appened to a file.

... If thats helpfull to anyone.

I joined a pool and mined one proof of work (I think) but then it shows this in the syslog "Long-polling activated for http://ltc.kattare.com:9332/LP"

Any ideas guys? Sad Can somebody please whitelist me?
