I'm sorry I'm a noob mining. I wanted to start mining a shit coin with my home PC just to see how it works but I can't seem to get there.

First I tried Solomining Florincoin using this tutorial:

I couldn't connect.

Tried it with a pool and a tutorial from that pool from here:

This time it connected, but found no devices.

Googled that. Only answer I found was to add:
-S opencl:auto
to the *.bat file.

Now it found "something" which seems to be the processor although only working around 10% of max according to the Windows Resource Monitor.

This is the line in the console:
OCL 0: 60.0C |   3.9/  3.9/  0.0kh/s | A:0 R:0+0(none) HW:0/none

I assume it means I'm currently mining at 0.0kh/s.

So what am I doing wrong here?

Graphics Card I would mine with would be a R9 290 but I would even bet happy to just get it working.
