    Default Ethereum mining

    Anyone been able to setup OpenSUSE to mine for ethereum?
    I found a howto, but it is for Ubuntu and I haven't been able to adapt it for openSUSE.

    Could not find ethereum or ethminer packages in any repositories. Did find the package geth.
    https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/wiki/geth

    I installed geth, created an account
    geth account new
    geth --etherbase 'myEtherbaseAddress' --mine

    Though it only uses the CPU for mining as it does not support GPU mining.

    Mining with geth failed after a short while

    Could find the ethminer software in the package ethereum-cpp.
    Started the ethminer as suggested in the How-To for ubuntu.

    Got an error while trying it.
    Code:
    ethminer -G -F http://yolo.ethclassic.faith:9999/0x<YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS> --farm-recheck 200
    Selected GPU mining without having compiled with -DETHASHCL=1


    PS! I did change YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS to my local generated ethereum address.

    Is it safe to trust https://github.com/cinemast/libjson-rpc-cpp for "libjsonrpccpp-common.so.0.()(64bi)"
    and then install ethereum-cpp from
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/marec2000:/cryptocoins/ ?

    Dear god no, never install random shared libraries from outside the distribution repositories.

    Do not download single packages!

    Was installing it under Tumbleweed and missing libjsonrpccpp-common.so.0 error is probably only Tumbleweed repo package error. Provided is libjsonrpccpp-common.so.1.0.0 , but ethereum-cpp is looking for "libjsonrpccpp-common.so.0
