This is regarding using cpuminer v2.3.2 to do Litecoin mining.
I recently upgraded my minerd from version 2.2.3 to 2.3.2 on both my win7(x64) and Ubuntu(x86) machines. Using the old version, minerd would run using a "cfg.json" file by default if it was present or you could specify one with "-c myCfg.json". Now with the new version, it no longer "sees" or parses the config file even if it is explicitly told to.
To get 2.3.2 to run I had to specify all parameters directly on the command line.
The question is: has cpuminer changed its use of the old JSON format or is there a bug in that component?
On Win7, I now resort to a batch file for each mining site.
