Set up dependencies

sudo apt-get install -y git automake  pkg-config build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev

Download the miner

git clone https://github.com/wolf9466/cpuminer-multi

Build minerd from source:

cd cpuminer-multi
./autogen.sh
CFLAGS="-march=native" ./configure
make

Run it

I'm using the Minergate pool address from here

 ./minerd -a cryptonight -o stratum+tcp://xmr.pool.minergate.com:45560 -u email@example.com -p x
