Doesn't seem to want to go with scrypt flag enabled
- solved - some lemon said cgminer 3.7 still had scrypt mining - it doesn't.
and yet im using 3.7.2 and am scrypt mining on 2 different rigs with it
Strange. I went and got 3.6.6, and that's fine - straight back to scrypt.
But with 3.7.0 the auto config, you know from the option cgminer gives when it's running, gave me phatk, it wouldn't take scrypt entries in the config, or as command line arguments. I thought phatk must have scrypt capability at first because my readout looked good, I've only used poclbm or phoenix and don't know any better, but then realised I was seeing Mh/s instead of Kh/s.
I suppose it may be worth trying a couple of other miners, got to admit I've lacked a bit of curiosity, though the best speeds are usually reported from polbm, reaper.
