I don’t recommend this in any way, but cpuminer will run on the Raspberry Pi. It’s pretty easy to build:
sudo apt-get install build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev automake git
git clone https://github.com/pooler/cpuminer.git
./configure CFLAGS="-march=armv6 -mtune=arm1176jzf-s -mfloat-abi=hard -mfpu=vfp -ffast-math -ffast-math -O3"
sudo make install
I’m not convinced that the l33t funroll-l00pz CFLAGS are strictly necessary. Yes, you still only get 0.34 khash/s on a stock Raspberry Pi â€” which means it would take several days to earn 1Ä (or roughly 0.1Â¢).
I’m trying to find the most futile computer on which to dig Ä. My BeagleBone Black is (somewhat surprisingly) more than 2Ã— as fast, once you replace the very limited Ã…ngstrÃ¶m distribution with Debian. I’m really disappointed that I can’t build cpuminer on my Intel Galileo. Its Yocto distribution is extremely small yet confusing. As the board runs burny hot under no load, I wonder how quickly it would glow white-hot under 100% CPU load.
