Carnth...you are a gem!!
Thank you for providing all of this great and useful information. I can't wait to start digging into it all.
After studying and working on this most of today, I'm finally close to solo mining (I think/hope).
The only thing I'm stuck in the muck on, is getting my miner to connect to the local litecoin-qt host. I've done everything I know of and it just will not connect. It says, "starting......connecting.......(infinity)". No hashrate displayed, no nothing.If anyone has productive suggestions, I'm very grateful for them....here's where I am now...Software:
- Windows 7
- GUIminer-Scrypt (latest build)
- miner= cgminer
= HD 5770 (this one I'm just using to test the miner)litecoin.config
file looks like this (local info edited):
Then I have my miner set with:
and of course, all of my GPU settings too.
Now...am I wrong in thinking that I can use GUIminer-Scrypt for solo mining? Pretty certain I wouldn't be attempting it unless something I read said it was possible, but we all make mistakes and I've been working on this a long time, so...
I didn't change anything at all inside the GUIminer folders or the cgminer folders inside of it. Is there something I need to adjust in there anywhere?
I would really like to see this running before going to bed tonight.
