So I have my raspi set up correctly with cpu miner and it is running nice. I go to slush's pool to see how its doing. Worker offline. 0 this. 0 that. What is is saying is it thinks nothing is happening. My bitcoin wallet is also empty, meaning it cannot get past bitcoincz. Please can I have some help with this it is doing my head in. Thanks.

If your raspi had not found any shares yet (which is probably the case, cpuminer should let you know) then the pool will not know what your hashrate is. Since it probably isn't finding and submitting shares, you aren't getting paid because it has not submitted anything to the pool due to low hashrate.

I would suggest that you not cpu mine on a raspi as its hashrate will be so low as to be negligible.

Slush pool only mines Bitcoin with merged mining. A raspberry pi will not stand a chance of being able to mine enough to be usable, and will likely not find a share at the pool's minimum stratum difficulty.

A better use for a raspi may be to control more specialized miners such as asics, or fpgas for algorithms that might still be mineable on larger FPGA devices.

That's because your raspberry pi is garbage.
You really shouldn't try mine a raspberry pi on SHA-256, (mining bitcoin)
There are machines for that, LITERALLY a billion times faster than a raspberry pi.
Try your PI out on Riecoin and see what hashrate that generates.
You simply mine bitcoin with an ASIC purpose made machine. A raspberry pi is to CONFIGURE a hardware miner and send hashes over your internet, not to actually mine!

This means I'm poor, I guess.
