I have started litecoin mining with cpuminer on Ubuntu 12.04 and I keep getting this message.

PROOF OF WORK: RESULT: false(booooooo)

From what I understand litecoin uses scrypt however my cpuminer is outputting it is using SHA256, how can I change it to use the correct algortmn Here is my shell output.
