 Question:

litecoin - Stratum from pool 0 detected new block
  • Loourr

    I'm trying to mine litecoin on litecoin-pool with cgminer

    ./cgminer --scrypt -u username.1 -p password -o stratum+tcp://lite.coin-pool.com:3333
    

    and it keeps on returning

    [2013-10-05 14:24:28] Stratum from pool 0 detected new block
    [2013-10-05 14:25:16] Stratum from pool 0 detected new block
    [2013-10-05 14:27:05] Stratum from pool 0 detected new block
    [2013-10-05 14:27:22] Stratum from pool 0 detected new block
    

    and I'm using the correct username and password.

    What could be causing this?

    What are you mining with? A cpu or gpu? If only a cpu and the pool has a share submission difficulty of 63 you might only submit a share every once in a while. As in every 15 minutes or so if you are using an older cpu. What is your hash rate?

    It is not an error that new blocks are detected. You should check other parts of the output to see if you are correctly connected, you are hashing and submitting shares. If you want us to check what's wrong, please, submit some other part of the cgminer's log.
