Litecoin mining in headless Ubuntu 12.04 with GeForce 8400 GS

Just putting my notes here.

Prereqs:

  • cgminer
  • openCL
  • scrypt
  • git

Get openCL

sudo apt-get -y install opencl-headers

Move to temporary directory and get cgminer

cd ~/tmp
git clone https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer

enter cgminer directory and run autogen

cd cgminer
./autogen.sh

configure with scrypt enabled

./configure --enable-script

compile!

make
