In this post I will show you how to gpu mine ethereum using the Geforce GTX GPU of your linux computer using a software called ethminer.

  • We are using Ubuntu server version 16. (64 bits)
  • We are using the MINERGATE minig pool
  • Minergate will charge you a small percentage of your mining profits, something like 1.5%

GEFORCE GPU INSTALLATION

Use the following commands to install the required packages to enable the Nvidia Geforce Graphic card on your linux computer.

# mkdir /downloads
# cd /downloads
# wget http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu1604/x86_64/cuda-repo-ubuntu1604_8.0.44-1_amd64.deb
# dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1604_8.0.44-1_amd64.deb
# apt-get update
# apt-get install cuda

After finishing the installation you need to edit the .bashrc file from the root user and add the following lines at its end.

# vi /root/.bashrc
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/cuda-8.0/lib64:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export PATH=/usr/local/cuda-8.0/bin:$PATH

After finishing the installation, reboot the computer.

# reboot

Thinking about start mining ethereum on genesis mining, or bitcoin? Which one do you recommend?

Good tutorial defiantly worth way more then .08 cents! Do I need to download anything first? Or just run the commands and start mining?

Just run the commands on an ubuntu linux 16 ....remember ...version 16.

If you wish to use ubuntu 17 ..i did publish a new video this week on the youtube channel. Happy mining!

Really simple tutorial, congratulation!

I'm not very good at Linux knowledge. I fail where I'm supposed to update the bash file. How do I do that?
