Ive already posted ths in the newbie section but its more appropriate here Smiley

Well if your mining for a profit this is pointless. But if your doing it for the fun then its worth a try and hey every h/s counts.

Since I got my pi in June I have always been curious to see how well it would mine bitcoins, but there is no mining software out there compiled for arm. Today I had very little to do so I decided to compile cpu miner for the PI. It does quite well considering got 200kh/s out of it once it was overclocked. Not bad for a arm based device but still nothing compared to a x86/64 cpu. Below are the commands used to compile cpu miner for the pi. This is based on the fact that your running a Debian based package.

apt-get install gcc gcc-4.5 g++ g++-4.5 libstdc++6-4.5-dev libpcre3-dev libcurl3-dev make less

apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk lib32gcc1 lib32stdc++6 lib32z1 libc6-i386

mkdir bitcoind

cd bitcoind

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

tar -zxvf cpuminer-1.0.2.tar.gz

cd cpuminer-1.0.2

./configure

make

./minerd --url http://yourpool.x:8332 --userpass yourusername:yourpassword

You might do better to mine Litecoin on it? Or maybe use it as a headless host for some FPGA boards running CGminer or BFGMiner.

just got an RPI to do this - has anyone tried running bitcoind -daemon along with p2pool yet (can it handle it without lag so it can be a headless host?)

Have you tried compiling your own bitcoind or use Raspbian's binary?
