Bitcoin Mining On Raspberry Pi

This is a quick and dirty guide to Bitcoin Mining on your Raspberry Pi. It's not going to be fast or efficient and may cause damage. I'm not responsible if you break anything, kill a cat or your wife leaves you as a result of this.

The following commands are to be run via either Terminal on the Pi or via SSH. If you are looking for a Windows SSH client, I recommend PuTTY


sudo aptitude install gcc gcc-4.5 g++ g++-4.5 libstdc++6-4.5-dev libpcre3-dev libcurl3-dev make less

sudo aptitude install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk lib32gcc1 lib32stdc++6 lib32z1 libc6-i386

sudo mkdir bitcoind

cd bitcoind

wget http://yyz.us/bitcoin/cpuminer-1.0.2.tar.gz

sudo tar -zxvf cpuminer-1.0.2.tar.gz

cd cpuminer-1.0.2

sudo ./configure

sudo make

./minerd --url http://pit.deepbit.net:8332 --userpass antony.bailey@thepoliceoftheinter.net_raspb:pi
