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.
In theory you can mine with the standard bitcoin client... just pop into the bitcoin.conf and add:
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
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 withhttp://bitcointalk.org/?topic=7514.0
Have fun mining... keep an eye on the canary
