I have a problem. I made it with this tutorial http://fucking-it.com/articles/bitcoin/771-monero-cpu-mining-on-linux

In the last step I get this message CPU does not have AES-NI, which is required.

What do I do with this?

  • Use JCE miner. It supports non-AES CPUs – Djago Oct 24 '18 at 22:53

You can't efficiently mine using a chip that doesn't support AES-NI.

Verify that the current CPU has the AES instruction set using the following command:

grep -m1 -o aes /proc/cpuinfo

If it supports AES-NI, your output will be "aes" . If it doesn't output anything, you can't mine on your Raspberry Pi using cpuminer.

  • I got nothing. What shloud I do now? Mining on raspberry pi? – Paul Dec 18 '17 at 20:34
  • That means u cant mine on your Pi. But pi have a GPU u can utilize that. I couldn't find any tools online. Even though if u code one script the hashrate will be terribly low as < 1 H/s – Susmith Dec 19 '17 at 7:01
  • Ok, I understand – Paul Dec 19 '17 at 7:07
  • You can try using a different miner. I got this error with CPUMiner-Multi, but the same computer works with minergate-cli. – Keith Mar 28 '18 at 18:24

What is the CPU in your system?

That miner is no longer supported.

Perhaps use this this: CPUMiner-Muli

Read the build instructions to build it for your *nix

Basic instructions:

Download the miner
$ git clone https://github.com/tpruvot/cpuminer-multi

If using Ubuntu do
$ apt-get install automake autoconf pkg-config libcurl4-openssl-dev libjansson-dev libssl-dev libgmp-dev make g++

$ cd cpuminer-multi

$ ./build.sh

$ make install

See what your options with
$ cpuminer --help

Usually you would do something like
$ cpuminer -t 2 -a cryptonight -o stratum+tcp://whateverpool.com:0420 -u youraddresshere -p x

  • ok, thank you for your help, but I do not know what I should do. It is my first time when I do it. Can you explain me well what I should do? – Paul Dec 17 '17 at 22:46
  • I added some basic instructions but didn’t test them so comment on any corrections you discover – Zigglzworth Dec 17 '17 at 23:06
  • I did everything as you and I got this massage: cpuminer: command not found – Paul Dec 17 '17 at 23:19
  • Are you sure it built ok? Are you in the correct directory where cpuminer is? ./cpuminer —help – Zigglzworth Dec 17 '17 at 23:23
  • Yes, when I build it I got this: make[2]: Leaving directory '/root/cpuminer-multi' make[1]: Leaving directory '/root/cpuminer-multi' – Paul Dec 17 '17 at 23:26
