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
any thoughts on running a non video card dependant setup for a cpu miner?
thanks for your time and the bandwidth.
