I’m new to Monero. I’ve got three Macs setup as nodes mining through monero-cli-wallet and a windows machine which I have configured for pool mining. On the advice of many threads I selected a smaller pool (https://moneroworld.com/#) and followed the instructions there to get my Windows PC connected to the pool with CPU and GPU miners. All seems to be going well in about a week I’ll have enough XMR to actually get a payout ;-)
What I would like to do is contribute my three Macs to the pool (all running Mac OS Sierra 10.12.2). I looked at all of the other pools help pages to see if they had easy Mac setup but it appears the only open-source way is to compile Wolf’s cpuminer-multi from GitHub. I have not been able to compile it successfully. I managed to get the dependencies installed without issue (jansson from GitHub - yes I know it is included in the cpuminer-multi tree but I wanted to see if I could at least install something from source off of GitHub; and Curl through Home-Brew ).
The instructions I am following are:
- I got 'aclocal' error so installed automaker via Home-Brew which seems to fix it
- Then got error ‘configure.ac:133: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_MSG_ERROR.If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow. See the Autoconf documentation.’ Fixed with 'brew install pkgconfig'.
CFLAGS="-march=native" ./configure #seems to run fine with no errors reported that I can see
make #error: ‘make: No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.’
Is there a some other syntax for the make command I need?
On another note, does Wolf’s AMD GPU miner work on Mac OS? Once I figure out my cpu miner-multi issues I’d like to tackle that if it runs ok as both my iMacs have AMD graphics cards?
Thanks for taking the time to read.
