The current version of cpuminer should build and run fine on ARM, although it will use a C implementation.

By the way, you need the $35 version if you want an ethernet controller.

Do you think it will be easy to set up for LTC mining?

Well i dont know how much kms you could possibly get out of it , im think .5 AT MOST , but since it runs linux it should be relatively easy to mine though http://www.arm.com/community/software-enablement/linux.php arm is supported which is a key thing, just a matter of time until a dev gets their hands on it , but that may take awhile since they sell out fast

From this thread - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=53756.msg641323#msg641323 - I'm expecting at least 3kH/s maybe 4kH/s as they had a phone going at 0.187MH/s  Shocked

I don't know much about the PSU of the RaspberryPi apart from it's 5v I think.  So I reckon it would use less than 25W while mining?

Kool can't wait for the hash-rate to be announced if it's worth it I'll get a 'farm' of them to go with my ASIC/FPGA farm I'm building Wink  At the least I could use one of these low power RaspberryPi to run the boards Smiley

Interested in seeing the hash rate of this thing, thinking of buying one eventually may as well put it to good use.

Will code for coins, python c#, php(+html, jss, sql) scripts can also pen testing(not a skid) PM me https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=71889.msg813212#msg813212

I'm guessing it does around 15-25Mhash/s. =3 (Bitcoin mining)

I bet nothing that it'll be less than 1khash/secs.

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison

Model     Mhash/s    Mhash/J    Mhash/s/$    ACP [W]    Clock    Version    Comment
ARM        0.187    ?    ?    ?    1200 MHz    cpuminer    Seagate Dockstar ArchLinux


And that's on BTC I think which would have a lot lower mining efficiency compared to LTC.
