How To Mine Plenteum New Algo (Ubuntu)

By January 25, 2019 No Comments

Quick and dirty Linux mining setup guide for Plenteum (get your mind out of the gutter)

Note: Here is the CPU only version that I compiled while making this guide, if you want cpu only feel free to use it. Compiled on Linux Mint 18 so it may or may not work for you, if not then you need to compile your own.

Check GCC Version

gcc --version

 

Download Plenteum Miner (for your gcc version)

https://github.com/turtlecoin/trtl-stak/releases

 

Open terminal and do:

./xmr-stak

 

If you get errors about missing libraries then it is time to build!

Grabbing Source And Compiling

sudo apt install libmicrohttpd-dev libssl-dev cmake build-essential libhwloc-dev
git clone https://github.com/turtlecoin/trtl-stak.git
mkdir trtl-stak/build
cd trtl-stak/build

 

Compile Time

Here you choose what you are building for, AMD, NVIDIA, or CPU only. I am doing cpu only which looks like:

cmake .. -DCUDA_ENABLE=OFF -DOpenCL_ENABLE=OFF

make install

Modify the above as you like, example if building for NVIDIA support then it would look like:

cmake .. -DCUDA_ENABLE=OFF

 

Did you just Bob build the shit out of it? Yes you did!

Run it:

cd bin

./xmr-stak

Follow the instructions:

Currency Type: turtlecoin

Pool Address:  ple.virtopia.ca:3333

Address: I think you know this part 😀

That is it, you are ready to rock, enjoy mining the little coin that could!

 

Special Note: Check the screen below, just another reason why PLE is so awesome, we are super lucky to have WhassupZA!

 

Bonus tip for those that read all the way to the end!

Use tmux to run your miner instance in, especially useful if on a headless server:

sudo apt install tmux

tmux

Run the miner then hit cntrl b+d to detach and leave it running. To reattach do:

tmux attach -t #

To see session # you can do:

tmux ls
