I have two laptops cranking hashes for pooled mining. My Mac is set up correctly, and I see the (yay!!!) messages pretty often from the minerd.exe output.
However, the PC I have cranking never seems to get the (yay!!!) message. It keeps on doing hashes and then receiving the "Longpoll detected new block" message. I even downloaded the Litecoin-Qt wallet, let it synchronize with the system, and placed the Minerd and mining_proxy EXE files next to the Litecoin-Qt in hopes that it would be able to access the longest chain due to the effort of the Litecoin wallet's synching.
I followed the steps for a PC in Litecoin LTC mining guide, CPU.
How can I make it work?
