Is there a working Open source implementation of litecoin mining application for Linux flavours without GUIs (think debian, ubuntu server etc.)

I found a couple of implementations by developers but all of them are closed source.

cgminer should work, it is open source, cross platform miner for bitcoins and litecoins (--scrypt key used for scrypt based coins like litecoin.)


Looks like the litecoin.org client on github includes litecoind which would be the non-GUI version.




there are many, googling "litecoin mining software" will find you some.

I've used: https://github.com/cbuchner1/CudaMiner https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer/
