Mining altcoins results in error

Postby nepumuk-fs » 2018-10-15 15:44

I tried mining litecoins with the packages litecoind and litecoin-qt wit hthe following command and output.
Code: Select all
$ minerd -o http://localhost:80 -O rpcuser:rpcpass --coinbase-addr=MBMuLmxZZPuyrKW9xEZxWgWnVkyHNKNCQx

All I found on the internet is some years old, so unlikely to be actual. I tried to mine litecoins solo with my CPU

I also have downloaded 'cpuminer', 'dogecoin', 'litecoin' and 'vertcoin-core' from github. If that helps.

Code: Select all
$ litecoind -gen
doesn't seem to work either where in the manpage of litecoind it says
-gen Generate coins
-gen=0 Don't generate coins
Seems confusing somehow...
