very new ... and I'm sure its been asked and answered but the amount of data is overwhelming and I have been looking but cant figure it out. I'm running bfgminer on A8-8650b + XFX HD 5450 (I know its not a very good setup but I'm just trying to understand things before I start getting better cards) ... anywho ... i connect to the pool using
Code:
bfgminer -S opencl:auto -L bfglog -g 1 --url=stratum+tcp://litecoinpool.org:3333 --userpass=<myusername>.1:1
[...]
the thing is, all my shares are invalid (14 invalid - 100%) ?! any pointers to why?

You're probably using the wrong hashing algorithm. The correct one for Litecoin is called "scrypt". If I remember correctly bfgminer has a --scrypt flag for this.

Anyway, let me point out for the umpteenth time that GPU mining is completely pointless nowadays. If you haven't already, I suggest you read this. GPU mining is simply too slow and inefficient to be anywhere near profitable. In addition, it can be very hard to set up correctly, much more so than an ASIC, and this makes its usefulness as a tool for beginners to "get started" questionable to say the least.

I have a question using the https://www.litecoinpool.org/minerconfig

It doesn't seem to have my exact card, which is an AMD Radeon HD 6410 D.  Does it need to be the exact card?
Also, how do we know what intensity we want to chose?

I am getting a frequency of 975 and a rate of about twice of what is showing up in my litecoinpool panel.

How long does "stratum from pool 0 requested work restart" usually last? I know what it means, but should we even have our asic machines running when this is going on, just as far as wear and electricity?  Is it all of litecoinpool.org that is getting it, or should I configure my machine differently?

I'm running at 414 Kh/s consistently and only getting credited for 152 Kh/s.  I get all 0's at the end of my statement in the CMD box as it's processing, which I heard is a sign that I'm right on my side.

I'm using

cgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://us2.litecoinpool.org:3333 -u brainstormer.1 -p 1    --gridseed-options=baud=115200,freq=975,chips=5 --hotplug 5

with a Gridseed Orb.   Please someone give some support on this because something isn't right.

just signed up and pointed miners here.

wow...awesome pool.  great stats, easy setup, fast recognition of rigs....I kind of feel like an ass not mining here sooner.

nice

That page is old and not maintained anymore. (And as far as I know it is not linked from anywhere on the pool's website.)
To answer your question, setting up a GPU for Litecoin mining involved a lot of trial and error. It was almost more of an art than a science.
As stated on the Help page, the pool has officially stopped offering assistance to GPU miners, as it would only be a waste of time and energy for everybody involved.

How long does "stratum from pool 0 requested work restart" usually last? I know what it means, but should we even have our asic machines running when this is going on, just as far as wear and electricity?  Is it all of litecoinpool.org that is getting it, or should I configure my machine differently?
Getting that message 2-3 times per minute is perfectly normal. It does not depend on your setup, and despite what some people think it does not imply anything negative. It just means that the pool sent you new work.

Sounds like hardware errors. If possible, send us a screenshot of cgminer.
As for the cause, with Gridseeds the power source is very often the culprit, so you may want to check that first.

Got it fixed with help from pool support.   I had my clock rate too high

Great Pool, been using it for a while.

Question I have: is there a place to find the current list of merged coins being mined that result in the higher PPS?

I'm just curious to know which coins are being used to result in this higher payout beyond DOGE coin.

I'm just curious to know which coins are being used to result in this higher payout beyond DOGE coin.

Right now we are mining Dogecoin, Viacoin, Pesetacoin, Argentum and Huntercoin.
We don't maintain a public list, but consider that many merged-mined coins come and go pretty quickly.

Hi,

I'm new here, so sorry if this question does not belong here.

I'm doing some research work on Litecoin and Bitcoin and herefore would require the litecoinpool coinbase signature, or a list of all mined blocks (if such is publicly available).

It would be a great help, if someone could provide this information!

Thanks in advance,

A list of the last 10 blocks found by the pool is available here. We don't use any particular coinbase signature, but as you can see the coinbase address is pretty stable.

Ahh, yes the address. Great, thanks!

Do you have any info on the mined dogecoin blocks?

I just checked the logs. One of the two servers on the East Cost has shown some very mild connectivity issues in the last 24 hours, but all the other servers appear to have had no problems at all. In particular, each server shows a very stable hash rate over the same period, and no statistically significant drop in the number of connected clients was observed. This leads me to believe that the problem probably lies somewhere between the pool and your miners.

only LTC? with other coins and pools are no problems.

Given the data I presented above, I am pretty confident that this is not a pool-side issue. Other users have been mining just fine in the past 24 hours.
