Aeon-stak-cpu allows you to mine Aeon via your CPU. This article will show you how to setup aeon-stak-cpu on Ubuntu 16.04.

sudo apt-get --assume-yes update
sudo apt-get --assume-yes install libmicrohttpd-dev libssl-dev cmake build-essential libhwloc-dev screen git nano
git clone https://github.com/shyba/aeon-stak-cpu.git
cd aeon-stak-cpu
cmake .
make install

After make install runs you will need to change directories:

cd bin/

Then you will run aeon-stak-cpu for the first time

chmod +x aeon-stak-cpu
./aeon-stak-cpu

You will see that after the first run you are given a notice to edit your config.txt. Follow the instructions provided and also make sure to edit the following lines in bin/config.txt with your information. Please see this post regarding Aeon-Pool.com.

"pool_address" : "pool.aeon.hashvault.pro:5555",
"wallet_address" : "WmrzosejkPA1vbx18hh9x3fCKsvLMUvbgX4bQwaS7Zds4VDq4kRchT25V1owsbnx8LDZ1xWg48DQnfjFFwGS3z6j2FX9H59F6",
"pool_password" : "x",

After you have the config.txt edited correctly simply run aeon-stak-cpu.

If you run into issues related to mmap this means you need to enable hugepages. To do this type the following commands:

sysctl -w vm.nr_hugepages=128
nano /etc/sysctl.conf

At the end of the sysctl.conf file add:

vm.nr_hugepages=128

Hi,
Thanks for the simple writeup. I just wanted to know, how to track my payout. Did not understand in the https://aeon.hashvault.pro/en/#!/ website. Can you help?

Hi Umashanar, in that page go to dashboard, in “Track Live Stats” put the same wallet that you use for your miner. then you can track your hashrates and payments and more.
I hoe this can help you.
Regards
Jorge

I have followed these directions exactly but I can’t get past editing the config. I don’t have permission. I am running root but no matter what I do I can’t edit it. Any ideas?
