Basic Raspberry PI 3b w/Raspbian OS. Apache Server, Minera, CGMiner with following setup:
Raspberry PI 3 kit:
Raspberry Pi Wi-Fi Adapter (as needed):
Amazon Basics 10 Port USB 2.0 Hub:
Bitcoin Miner - GekkoScience 2Pac BM1384 Miner Official Thread, device can be purchased through Amazon, ebay, or your favorite mining retailer:
## Raspberry Pi Install, and mining prep:
Apache for Raspberry PI (install PHP as well):
Minera Mining HTML (follow from Manual Install, starting under "Install" section as HTTP Server, and PHP will be installed from Apache/PHP install in previous step:
## CGMiner Compile, and Prep (From "Official Forum"), one line at a time in Linux terminal session:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade -y
sudo apt-get install -y build-essential git libusb-1.0-0-dev libusb-1.0-0 libcurl4-openssl-dev libncurses5-dev libudev-dev screen libtool automake pkg-config libjansson-dev
sudo mkdir -p git/vthoang; cd git/vthoang
sudo git clone https://github.com/vthoang/cgminer.git
sudo CFLAGS="-O2" ./autogen.sh --enable-gekko
sudo make -j 2
sudo cp cgminer /var/www/minera/minera-bin/custom/cgminer-vthoang
## Minera Configuration:
You can find your Raspberry Pi's IP address by using the following Linux command: ifcconfig. Connect to minera either on your Raspberry Pi's desktop by using https://localhost/minera, or through another computer and connecting to it's IP address. In my case, https://10.0.1.73/minera.
Under Settings, configure your Pool URL. Turn "Custom Miner" on. Click "Save" upper right corner.
Configure your "Local Miner" settings. Drop down, select "cgminer-vthoang". Click "Save". Enable/Turn On Logging, and Append JSON conf.
Under Manual Options, if you wish to perform overclocking, the following command switch can be entered:
The switch will perform overclocking on all of the GekkoScience mining sticks. Default operating speed is 100MHZ, and requires no switch. Values are 125, 150, 175, 200 and greater. I believe the max is around 275, but your USB hub will dictate how much you can deliver. The Amazon basics hub listed above, will overclock one miner, but not two. I've tested a single stick to 175MHZ.
