Hello,

I install CPU Miner ( https://github.com/j16sdiz/cpuminer ).
But when I execute configure, I have a problem with the libcurl :

Code:
./configure: line 4830: syntax error near unexpected token `,'
./configure: line 4830: `LIBCURL_CHECK_CONFIG(, 7.10.1, ,

I have Fedora 14.

So, I look if I have a libcurl on the system :

Code:
Le paquet libcurl-7.21.0-6.fc14.x86_64 est déjà installé dans sa dernière version

I try install a libcurl-7.21 devel and I have always this problem.

Would you have a solution?



Thanks

Download and compile from the tarball (http://yyz.us/bitcoin/cpuminer-0.8.1.tar.gz) rather than from github. At least that worked for me on OS X which was having trouble finding libcurl.

Bon chance!

Your libcurl installations is broken.  It lacks autoconf macro(s).

As another poster noted, you should build from tarball instead of git, to avoid having to regenerate configure.

Sorry for necroposting, but there is solution. (I am using FreeBSD).

Code:
$ cd cpuminer
$ mkdir m4
$ cp /usr/local/share/doc/curl/libcurl/libcurl.m4 m4

Then add string "ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS = -I m4" to file Makefile.am and edit file autogen.sh - replace string "aclocal" with "aclocal -I m4".

That's all.

You do realize, of course, that CPU mining is no longer profitable ever, regardless of CPU model and local cost of electricity. You pay a premium over what a BTC would cost if you just bought the thing on Mt. Gox. Maybe 30% more, maybe 50% more -- maybe even double!

Do mined BTC taste better than ones you buy from an exchange?

I guess you're probably setting this up on your work PC -- still, I'd be careful. Making 0.3 BTC a month (current value: $0.87) isn't worth losing your job Smiley

Well, thank you for your care about my job, heh Smiley
But my post wasn't about bitcoin mining soft only  Wink
There are some new alternative crypto currencies (LiteCoin, Tenebrix, etc.) that grow rapidly enough, and it uses CPU proof of work (scrypt algorithm).
