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
Download Plenteum Miner (for your gcc version)
Open terminal and do:
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
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
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!

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
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:
