The company I work for has a lot of servers that are mostly used as web servers. They all run Centos 7 and for the most part are way over powered for the traffic that they serve. They are a perfect example of a way to make use of idle CPU time to mine Vertcoin. This guide will show you how to compile CPUMiner-Multi on Centos 7.

First lets install the packages needed:

yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

yum install curl-devel openssl-devel git screen

screen

cd /usr/local/src/

git clone https://github.com/tpruvot/cpuminer-multi.git

cd cpuminer-multi

./autogen.sh

./configure CFLAGS="-march=native" --with-crypto --with-curl

./build.sh

Now all that is left is to run the cpuminer command. You can use the following: (Be sure you change the VTC address to your own, unless you want to mine for me :))

./cpuminer -a lyra2v2 -o stratum+tcp://vtc2.alwayshashing.com:9181 -u VjKJuxtactDGK37WboP1oLExhFQ9Zipgwe -p x

Happy mining!
