News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Can I safely ignore it and go on?

First Find yourself a Litecoin Pool.

Elitist Jerks = 0% Fee PPLNS http://www.ejpool.info:8080
Litecoinpool.org = 3% Fee PPS http://litecoinpool.org
Pool-X = 0% Fee PPLNS http://pool-x.eu
Ozcoin = 0% Fee Prop http://lc.ozco.in
Squidnet = 1% Fee PPLNS http://www.squidnet.org

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

Code:
./minerd --url http://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)



I'm confused where do I get username and password from because the pools I've visited in browser don't have web pages or are not accepting new workers?

Of course... Wink

I just tried to download 2.2.2-win64 and Avast! won't download it - says it is a Win32:Crypt-OSW [Trj]
I cross-checked by downloading it on a different machine with Panda AV and when I asked it to scan the zip it threw up a Trojan alert and automatically deleted minerd.exe from the zip.

Can anyone post a clean version of the 64bit minerd executable please for a compiler-challenged user?

Thanks for the post!... but there is a new way to do it (integrated ATIs)?

If i will do mining with pure CPU this is still the best way?

GPU is the best way to go at the moment. CPUs are much slower and less efficient.

FPGAs seem like they're around the corner, but I'm not sure when they'll get here for consumers. I think maybe jasinlee and co. are doing an IPO.. something similar to ASICMINER. That is another option as well, or you can wait for consumer mining FPGAs to become available. There is a company or two already accepting pre-orders, but I can't vouch as to the validity of them... they could be scams for all I know. I would be careful about where you park your money for FPGAs, when Bitcoin ASICs/FPGAs came out there were a lot of scam artists that popped up.

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.

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

TNX man with this i finaly got minerd working in a cloude Cheesy
