Welcome gitrix. There is no need to ask for help on any linux forum. Usually the forum community per definition is there to give some help.

If you are begining with linux, you will have to be patient. Especially that a lot of people here are presently working on new 3.0 version of porteus. Package building from source is not an easy matter unless there are few dependencies.

To my knowledge nobody ever mentioned litecoin on this forum.

Google is your friend, and porteus is slackware. Using searchwords slackware cgminer yields interesting information:
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=14724.0

From that thread it seems you would be more lucky with ubuntu. However, there is maybe within this community someone who uses your package. So have a look on the forum once and a while.

Read that thread (and others on the topic) and come back with more a more precise demand. For example, if you need a driver for your graphic card, the ATI FGLRX driver, it is not available presently on this distribution. However, we have wonderful maintainers that might build them. If you are lucky they might read this thread of yours. You would have more chances if you would remove the term help in your title. It looks as if you did not make much research on your topic.

An efficient way to ask questions on a Linux forum (CaptainPicard's suggestion) is explained in How To Ask Questions The Smart Way:

Help yourself and god will help you. :wink:

correction - this driver was always available in Porteus. it's named as 'amd-catalyst' as ATI company does not exist for some time now.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
