[closed] How do I mine Litecoins with my GPU?

The Litecoin client doesn't seem to support GPU mining. I've heard that most of the normal Bitcoin setups can mine litecoin as well, but I'm having a hard time understanding what would be involved in getting cgminer, for example, to work with LTC. Is it just as simple as changing the port?

If you are using a pool then yes you would change the connection setting , pool url:port, username, password etc.

Also for cgminer you need to add --scrypt in your startup script. Here is an example, my cgminer startup bat file for windows. Radeon 7970 solo mining Solo mining guide.

     cgminer.exe --scrypt -I 13 -g 4 -o -u one -p one

To use this with a pool simply change the to your pool address:port change to your username and password.

-I is the intensity start it lower and then increase until it crashes and then lower until stable.

-g is the number of threads check the statistics and see what gives you higher khashes. normal is 2 threads.
