Need help getting a DigitalOcean Droplet mining--possible github issue

I’ve been following the instruction here to set up a mining droplet on DigitalOcean:

Now, I’m no newbie to terminal work or building wallets, but I do get stumped at this:
make -f makefile.unix

There is no makefile.* file in the repo:

Either the instructions are out of date, or there are files missing from github.

Does anyone have any ideas to help me move forward with this?

Much appreciated,


Actually I resolved this myself. It seems the instructions are woefully old since building the app uses cmake now.

So just in case anyone is interested…here’s my suggested commands.

Make Swap File

dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=64M count=16 && mkswap /swapfile && swapon /swapfile

Install requirements (it’s possible not all are actually needed, I’ve not tested for that)

apt-get install -y yasm  git make g++ build-essential libminiupnpc-dev libboost-all-dev libdb++-dev libgmp-dev libssl-dev dos2unix cmake

Grab the files and install

git clone && cd primecoin && mkdir bin && cd bin && cmake .. && make

The name of the program has also changed, so the right command to use to start mining is:

screen ./xolominer -poolip= -poolport=1337 -pooluser="YOUR ADDRESS" -poolpassword=PASSWORD -genproclimit=1

Turns out I’m WAY behind on things! Ha!

Ignore this thread please. It seems the instructions on the primecoin site are REALLY old. Pretty much unusable in fact.

Cool - what’s the Mining performance on that droplet?
