How - To START MINING VERIUM ON RASPBERRY PI 3 step by step for noobs
Hello again in this post I will show you how I managed to set up my Raspberry Pi 3 to start Mining Verium (VRM)
I figured I would make this how-to for people like myself who are not Linux experts.
It's recommended to have 64bit os I made a post regarding this you can read more about this here https://steemit.com/raspberry/@dury10/how-to-install-64-bit-os-on-a-raspberry-pi-3-step-by-step-for-newbies
First you need to go to this pool or other I fount this one working good https://vrm.mining-pool.ovh/index.php
SignUp / Login / Create your workers
Now you need to add some libraries to you pc to can run properly your miner ;)
Open a command line and type this.
sudo apt-get install automake autoconf pkg-config libcurl4-openssl-dev libjansson-dev libssl-dev libgmp-dev zlib1g-dev
Ok for now let's download the new miner
After testing a bunch of them i figured out that this one its the best one for Pi3
To download the miner you need to use this command
git clone https://github.com/fireworm71/veriumMiner
After the download its finished you need to go to the miner folder by typing this command
Now we need to run some command to get the miner installed properly
./build.sh ./autogen.sh ./configure CFLAGS= --with-crypto --with-curl make -j4
Congrats you finished the install and now you can start mining Happy mining
To start the miner you need to run this command
./cpuminer -n 1048576 -o stratum+tcp://eu.vrm.mining-pool.ovh:3032 -u user.worker -p password -t 0 -1 4 --cpu-affinity-stride 1 --cpu-affinity-default-index 0 --cpu-affinity-oneway-index 4
This command will allow you to run all the 4 cores of your Pi
Note you have to change the User.worker with you username and worker name and the same for the password
If your Pi its overclocked to 1.3 ghz you should get @ 190 H/M constant If you want to learn more about Overclocking a Raspberry Pi check this link https://steemit.com/raspberry/@dury10/how-to-overclock-your-raspberry-pi-3
Some things I have noticed. A good power supply and cooling make a difference, and also a good micro usb cable 20-23awg also i have noticed that my pi are using only 0.75-0.90 A so you cand run it with any phone charge but a good cable ;) (i connect on my pi`s via ssh so i do not use any periferical on the boards)

I want to thank to all Verium community because they helped me a lot to figure wich miner is the best and how to set it up running on a good hash. special thanks to fireworm, sundaypi, ccnorth, Tinellus.
