CPUminer for raspberry pi

A latest subscriber on my youtube channel requested to compile a version of cpuminer for Raspberry Pi to mine bitcoin / altcoins. Knowing that it’s not indeed worth the cpu cycles, I determined to compile a version for anyway. I have also wrote a quick tutorial explaining how to compile your own ter case you want to.

Equipment List

Source code used:


Installing Dependencies

very first you will need to install all the dependence:

Downloading Source Codes

now wij need to grab the source codes:

navigate to the folder:


To compile the software you will need to come in thesis instructions below

when done you should have a opstopping called cpuminer

to figure out what you need you should attempt using the help


here is a example connection

if your mining this with a pi, attempt lowering the diff factor with the directive below.

Hi, thanks for your tutorial for the RasPi, but the build instruction should be `./autogen.sh &,&, ./build.sh`, or error shown. Thanks.

This tutorial seemed to work for you, so I’m hoping you can help mij out – it has all worked out up until the last point of opening the application – I’ve compiled the software, albeit that’s where it violates down. I think the connection that this tutorial has suggested assumes that you are mining with a pool – do you have any idea how I could mine solo?

For those who can’t make this work execute the following instructions sepparate:

After its done embark the miner by:

algorithm parameter should be substituted with cryptonight-light for aeon coin for example, search for your coin algorithm before you begin mining:

Example for AEON Coin (wtih Trio threads out of Four for RPI Three):

./cpuminer -u AEON_WALLET_ADDRESS_HERE -p pass -a cryptonight-light -o stratum+tcp://pool:1234 -t Three

How do you run the miner when the miner boots up automatically without having to go te the terminal every time

investigate how to add jobs to crontab -e

big hint you can youse the @reboot guideline

how do you run the miner on the boot up instead of going through terminal every time

This worked out good for mij. Thanks for the tutorial.

Mining with the CPU on a Pi Three isn’t very profitable ( unless you get free Pi Three’s and electric current ) but it’s fine if you want to support the Monero network and contribute to the security of the block chain. If you have a Pi Trio turned on and not doing much, why not help out your beloved block chain?

When i run ./build.sh i get an error message” openSSL crypto library required”. what should i do?

thanks ter advance.

-bash: ./build.sh: No such opstopping or directory

Makefile.am:12: warning: ‘INCLUDES’ is the old name for ‘AM_CPPFLAGS’ (or ‘*_CPPFLAGS’)

i would love to see wolf cpu miner v2 for the tinkerboard. i have attempted everything but i cannot seem to get it compiled
