So, I got my, apparently dissipated, bitcoin mining rig.
I found out it's really easy to setup in Fedora; even with SELinux and all. Here's a straightforward howto:
# Get BFGMiner git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:luke-jr/bfgminer.git cd bfgminer # install deps su -c 'yum install -y uthash jansson jansson-devel libevent-devel ncurses-devel' # build it ./autogen.sh ./configure --enable-bfsb --enable-scrypt make # run it bfgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.mining.eligius.st:3334 -O <your bitcoin address>
Now, there are a few things to be aware off:
- You can mine pooled or on own; but that is out of the scope of my howto
- There are many pools to choose from: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Comparison_of_mining_pools
Feel free to comment and add more notes to the HowTo.
Happy mining, dudes!
