so, i thought if i could whip together a ubuntu 11.04 box and run a cpu miner for a day or two.  you know, check out how i like remoting in and what not.

well, that failed.

i can get 11.04 up and running.  installed from a stick to a hard drive.

remote in via vnc viewer or putty.

what i can't do is get anything else to "go".

i do NOT have any opencl capable video cards to go in it yet.  i wasn't going to buy anything untill i decided if i liked it or not.
so i'm thinking that's why i can't get opencl to even compile/make/showup?

then i tried cpuminer1.02 but even cutting/pasting the directions from the readme fail.

gotta have libcurl.  download libcurl (or so i think).  cut/paste make directions == fail.

i'm comfortable on the command line.
i've run a linux command line box since redhat 6 but i'm TOO stupid to get this going.

yes, i want the ubuntu 11.04 DESKTOP installation.
yes, cpu mining is worthless.  it's just for proof of concept.
yes, i'm way to whiney about the whole thing Smiley

any thoughts on running a non video card dependant setup for a cpu miner?

thanks for your time and the bandwidth.
