Try using Ubuntu with a flash drive, it works quite well I've heard. Install CGMiner or BFGMiner and AMD drivers, and you should be good to go. That way you don't need to pay for an OS or a hard drive.

Thought I'd share a little story with you guys of how I lost and then found the password to my encrypted Litecoin wallet, containing around $830.

 

I mined a couple weeks back in the summer and accumulated around 18 LTC. I also password encrypted my wallet.dat file, I didn't want it to be stolen. I kept mining and it worked great, the plan was to save the LTC until their price went up, and then sell them.

 

Well when I wanted to sell them, I couldn't remember the password I used to encrypt the file, now the wallet contained around $350 worth of coins up from the $40 it was worth in the summer.

 

Anyway, earlier today I set up a brute forcing password cracker somebody wrote in Ruby to try and find wallet passwords, and it found mine in about 20 seconds. I was extremely happy, and now I'm sitting quite a bit richer. I'm planning to spend the money I found on some watercooling gear. Or 2x R9 290's.... Hmm... ;)

 

But if any of you lost your password for your wallet as well I can guide you through how I found mine, and hopefully you can find yours as well. You just need to have a rough idea of what your password was, and then the program will do it's work.

Need help configuring Litecoin Miner

Using guiminer-scrypt alpha
I have a AMD Xenon R9 290 Card (I was told this would get 2GH/s)
I am only producing about 700kH/s.

What parameters should I use for the guiminer for solo mining to get highest hashrate?

Thanks.

Take a look at this thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/1437876/290x-mining-performance

 

It has some configurations for 290X's as well as 290's that should help you out.

 

Also, do you know if you can unlock your 290 to a 290X?

Send me a pm with instructions please, a friend had a similar problem.

Sure thing, download linux binaries and compile it yourself...or use a built one (I prefer the former)

Slightly off-topic: Is it normal for a HD7970 Vapor-X mining LTC at 1040/1500MHz to reach 79C on the core and 99C on VRM 1? Also I was thinking of watercooling this for the long term, what vrm sinks do I use?
