First Find yourself a Litecoin Pool.

Elitist Jerks = 3% Fee PPS http://www.ejpool.info
Ozcoin = 2% Fee DGM https://lc.ozcoin.net
Litecoinpool.org = 4% Fee PPS http://litecoinpool.org
Pool-X = 2% Fee PPLNS http://pool-x.eu


P2P Pool HowTo: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=62842.0

For more information about Litecoin Pools. Visit
https://github.com/coblee/litecoin/wiki/Comparison-of-mining-pools


Minerd using scrypt for litecoin [Windows/ or Linux]

Note : 64 Bit has been known to increase speeds

Replace pool.ejpool.info:9332 with any pool that you have chosen in the examples below


Windows:
extract https://github.com/pooler/cpuminer/downloads into a folder end edit "MINE 2 THREADS.bat"
Code:
@echo on
ECHO "Example Litecoin miner startup file (1 thread, localhost, set your own user and password)"
ECHO.

minerd.exe --algo scrypt --s 6 --threads 4 --url http://pool.ejpool.info:9332 --userpass username.1:password

put in your worker details you command for starting minerd.exe shuld look sumthing like (depending on your machine):
Code:
minerd.exe --url http://pool.ejpool.info:9332 --userpass user:password --threads 2
(replace user and password with details from "My Workers" and --threads with amount of cpu cores you wish to use)

Its working when you see the following.
[2011-10-16 20:27:39] thread 1: 84652 hashes, 3.34 khash/sec
[2011-10-16 20:27:44] thread 1: 6717 hashes, 3.43 khash/sec
[2011-10-16 20:27:44] PROOF OF WORK RESULT: true (yay!!!)

Linux (Ubuntu):
Code:
sudo apt-get install make automake build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev git libdb4.8++-dev
git clone git://github.com/pooler/cpuminer.git
cd cpuminer
./autogen.sh
./configure CFLAGS="-O3"
make
Code:
./minerd --url http://pool.ejpool.info:9332 --userpass user:password --threads 2
(replace user and password with details from "My Workers" and --threads with amount of cpu cores you wish to use)

Linux (CentOS):
Code:
sudo yum -y groupinstall "Development Tools"
sudo yum -y install git libcurl-devel python-devel screen rsync

git clone git://github.com/pooler/cpuminer.git
cd cpuminer
./autogen.sh
./configure CFLAGS="-O3"
make
Code:
./minerd --url https://pool.ejpool.info:9332 --userpass user:password --threads 2
(replace user and password with details from "My Workers" and --threads N with amount of cpu cores you wish to use)

If you have issues with Ubuntu or CentOS please come into our IRC channel and we will be more than happy to help you.

MAC(OSX): Binaries can be downloaded here.
https://github.com/pooler/cpuminer/downloads


Thanks to Pooler for all the great work he has done with cpuminer!

IF you feel anything needs to be added or changed in this short little how to.. please let me know.

NOTE: If you get missing libcurl for 64 bit linux. Here is how to resolve it. Make sure to rerun ./autogen.sh after you install libcurl
Code:
cd /root
wget http://curl.haxx.se/download/curl-7.24.0.tar.gz
gzip -d curl-7.24.0.tar.gz
tar -xvf curl-7.24.0.tar
cd curl-7.24.0
./configure
make
make install
cp /root/curl-7.24.0/docs/libcurl/libcurl.m4 /usr/share/aclocal/libcurl.m4
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libcurl.so.4 /lib64/libcurl.so.4

On the Linux instructions, there is no need for additional CFLAGS, -O3 suffices for this.
On the Centos installation instructions, you are missing a number after -j which specifiec concurrent compilation of files.

I would love to setup a private Litecoin Pool for my company, but getting ArtForz pushpool working correctly has been challenging to say the least.

Getting closer every day I suppose Tongue

However made a couple changes Smiley

Awesome thread.

This is giving a hand up to all the wannabe Litecoin miners

Going to start mining LTC myself and get my cpu dirty.

Added Libcurl note as this might come up with some people. I found this to be the easiest and cleanest way to get it installed

This should be a great head start for those hesitant to try CPU mining. Stop leaving money on the table! Smiley

AVG does not like it:


Can I safely ignore it and go on?
