crypto mining software, altcoin mining


I am trying to find out if there is a cryptocurrency mining software package available for linux, I'm using leap 42.3.

There is a package for MS Windows that is absolutely the best. The package is "NiceHash Miner".

If anyone knows of a program that comes close to "NiceHash Miner" for linux I would appreciate a response.

jimonlinux

rtmistler suggested CCMiner which is a software package that I will
try but CCMiner.org is also a place that has other packages for
linux. This is the place to start.

Also, mining is not as difficult as was suggested, You can start
from the computer that you are reading this post.

I haven't used NiceHash Miner. CGMiner seems to be a defacto standard and works on Linux.

Mining with Linux requires finding a mining application, installing the required libraries and drivers for the hardware you have, and configuring everything properly.

You might check out
(mod removed links)

A niche distro designed around mining, that provides all the drivers, applications, and custom tools required for mining, tuning, and development. The community is great for supporting linux mining in general as well.

...and which you are a member of, coincidentally. This is very much like advertising...especially seeing as you want people to PAY FOR THIS particular package. Advertising is against LQ Rules, and you have even pushed this link in your "weclome" post as well.

Kind of a thin line between suggestions and promotions. I removed links. If you feel it was in error, contact me.
