After I ssh into my server, what do I do?

Which miner should I be using, and how do I implement it on the server?

It will be cpu mining, which I know is not terribly practical, but I would just like to learn a bit and mess around.

Thanks.

In theory you can mine with the standard bitcoin client... just pop into the bitcoin.conf and add:

gen=1

That would kick in the built in miner in the bitcoin client... it will show you the hash rate in the client gui.

setting it to
gen=0
would disable it.


If you do grab a card and start playing around I find these guides helped me get the basics of what I needed with an ati/amd card... to be honest I could never get a good combination of temp/mhash using various sdks the way I liked and went back to a win7 64bit to mine with

Have fun mining... keep an eye on the canary
