Setup a USB Block Erupter on the Raspberry Pi with MinePeon

Insert your MinePeon SD Card

Connect the Rashberry Pi to a Powered USB Hub

Connect the Block Erupters into the Powered USB Hub

Boot the Raspberry Pi

Log into the Pi as user: minepeon with the password: peon

Type ifconfig and note the ip address for the device

On a separate computer open up your internet browser and point it to the ip of the raspberry pi. (ex:

Log into the Pi as user: minepeon with the password: peon

Click on the Pools tab at the top of the page

Delete all the info inside the boxes and replace it with your own info

Ex: username: InstantSupp.777 password: 12345

The Block Erupter will now start mining

After a few minutes check the Graph page to make sure it is producing the info and your erupter is mining properly
