Hi all, wondering if someone can help .
I am running a scrypt miner ( mining Gulden ) and trying to mine a pool ( http://nlg.hardcoreminers.com/index.php?page=gettingstarted ) .
I am very new to Linux and all the commands , I pretty much have to look everything up .

I have downloaded bfgminer onto the raspberry Pi , the program shows up under directory listing as   " bfgminer " .

Per the instructions on the link provided I am to type :

./bfgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://stratum.eu.nlg.hardcoreminers.com:3026 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword

 Here is the error I get :
-bash: ./bfgminer: Is a directory

Again I am a noob , maybe I am missing some other software needed ?

Any help would be appreciated.
ThankYou !

Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

You should run that in the bfgminer folder

Which in your case happen to be ~/bfgminer, so you should use this:

Code:
./bfgminer/bfgminer

Instead of this:

Code:
./bfgminer



The "proper" way to do it would be to:

Code:
pi@raspebrrypi:~ $ cd bfgminer
pi@raspebrrypi:~/bfgminer $ ./bfgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://stratum.eu.nlg.hardcoreminers.com:3026 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword

You have to change Weblogin.WorkerName to your login data found on the My Account / My Workers area. For example:

Code:
-u desci.1 -p x

So the full command for me would be:

Code:
pi@raspebrrypi:~ $ ./bfgminer/bfgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://stratum.eu.nlg.hardcoreminers.com:3026 -u desci.1 -p x



If bfgminer is actually installed in the system, however, you should run it without the leading dot and slash, like so:

Code:
pi@raspebrrypi:~ $ bfgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://stratum.eu.nlg.hardcoreminers.com:3026 -u desci.1 -p x

I've publicized the scripts I use in the raspberry pi to control the ASIC miners, but the instructions are in brazilian portuguese.

Will eventually translate them and provide a link.
