  1. Install BOINC on the Pi, join for WorldCommunityGrid (IBM), OByte and Gridcoin, earn some coins and exchange it to everything you want, just choose the right exchange.

  2. Hey "raspberry tips", how about a challenge: Using Raspberry 0 w as your main PC for a day or three?

    I'm sugesting this because in 2012, Chris from Explaining Computers used Rpi2 as his PC for a week. Now in 2021, covid made more jobs change to the online model, and here in Brazil the prices of computers got very high. As i'm using my Rpi4 for main computer for a whole year, ive had a really good experience on manjaro with sway etc. Many wonder what can be used or not in Rpi0w, so this test could be great. Some details to make the sugestion working:

    -SYSTEM: raspberry OS. Maybe you get a better experience with arch, dietPi or even Gentoo idk.

    -DESKTOP ENVIROMENT: change the LXDE to sway or i3 (novaspirit has a great tutorial on this). Maybe 540p resolution would be better

    -PROGRAMS: abiword instead of libreoffice, gimp?, firefox with lightweight extensions or some terminal browser (i can sugest more tips on this topic)

    -HARDWARE RECOMENDATIONS: SSD or HD with external powering instead of the microSD memory, a good microSD or even leepspvideo's PiSafe's eMMC to boot, keyboard with dongle, cable management, and of course a great usb hub or the GPIO shild with more USBs, overclock and a little heatsink

    -CHALLENGES: try typing some text, light image and audio editing, youtube playback with h264ify or pasting the link in vlc, gaming (even light PS1 games works), benchmarks, light versions of sites like gmail and facebook, video or audio conferences, multitasking in general with htop, wine, DRM, ssh, cmatrix of course, etc

  3. I got a problem. if I want to start the miner it says "file or directory not found". after the build.sh there were only a blank cursor. I closed the cmd. is that ok or does it take much time to build that?

  4. I get the way to the end of setting up the raspberry pi 4 8gb and will not start mining… any help? I put in the last command which end with my email Associated with miner gate and nothing happens

  5. wtf… 3H/s is TERRIBLE. Not even worth it lol. You want at least 1000H/s per device. And when i checked months ago you wanted at least 120,000H/s a day to get 1xmr…

  6. got some errors doing the ./configure its on ubuntu server 20.04 anyone have any ideas to try?
    config.log was empty
    configure: error: in `/home/ubuntu/cpuminer-multi':
    configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
    See `config.log' for more details
