Solo mining with cgminer question
« on: September 27, 2012, 06:38:33 PM »
Hello, I have a couple questions about cgminer that I did not find in the official thread. First off, I used the solo easy automatic set up for solo mining lite coins, which is located here: http://forum.litecoin.net/index.php/topic,54.0.html
I have been mining bitcoins for a little over a month and decided to check out litecoins, see if it could work out a little better with my system. I have only mined with a pool for bitcoins, mainly deepbit. So, I am new to solo mining as a whole.

My first question is, how do you know when you have found a block with cgminer? Does it tell you, or do you just find out once litecoins have been deposited in to your wallet?

My second question will be used with a picture I will post below. All the abbreviations, like SS, Q, DW etc etc, does it look like my cgminer is correctly solo mining litecoins? I looked up what each individual term meant. I am just not sure if that is what is typically seen when solo mining or if some thing is not running correctly.
