I have just set up cpuminer-multi on my Raspberry Pi B+, my aim is to mine a cryptonight coin called Bytecoin. Instead of connecting the mining Pi to the pool, I will be connecting the mining Pi to a proxy which is connected to the pool, so that I can mine with more than one Pi.
I did this by doing the following...
# update raspbian sudo apt-get update -y # install the following dependent modules sudo apt-get install autoconf libcurl4-openssl-dev libjansson-dev openssl libssl-dev gcc gawk # clone this miner repo git clone https://github.com/lucasjones/cpuminer-multi.git # navigate to the directory and compile cd cpuminer-multi ./autogen.sh ./configure make
But When I enter the following code to start the miner...
./minerd -a cryptonight -o pool.bytecoin.party:3333 -u (My Bytecoin Address Was Here) -t 1
I get the following error...
[2018-01-08 21:40:07] Using JSON-RPC 2.0 [2018-01-08 21:40:07] CPU Supports AES-NI: NO [2018-01-08 21:40:07] 1 miner threads started, using 'cryptonight' algorithm. [2018-01-08 21:40:07] HTTP request failed: Empty reply from server [2018-01-08 21:40:07] getwork failed, retry after 10 seconds
I have even tried setting up a proxy on another Raspberry Pi that connects to the pool, but when I try to connect the mining Raspberry Pi to the proxy Raspberry Pi, I get the same error.
I tried to see if the miner will mine any other cryptocurrencies, so I initiated scrypt mining to my Litecoin pool and that worked well.
I am unsure about how to fix this, any help or suggestions will be much appreciated,
