Bitcoin mining on arm/armhf devices such as the Raspberry Pi

Method 1) Mining via Android via LTCMiner
If you have a single-board-computer that runs Android (such as the Cubieboard, Gooseberry, APC Rock, OLinuXino, Hackberry etc.), you can just use the app LTCMiner. For downloads, see my blog post “Finally a working bitcoin miner for Android

Method 2) Mining on Linux via UFAMiner

wget http://darkgamex.ch/ufasoft/ufasoft_bitcoin-miner-0.32.tar.lzma
apt-get install -y --force-yes lzma libpcre3-dev
tar --lzma -xvpf ufasoft_bitcoin-miner-0.32.tar.lzma
cd ufasoft_bitcoin-miner-0.32
./configure
make
make install
./bitcoin-miner -o http://Username:Password@pit.deepbit.net:8332

Method 3) Mining on Linux via CPUMiner

wget https://github.com/jgarzik/cpuminer/archive/master.zip
unzip master.zip
cd cpuminer-master
apt-get install -y --force-yes curl libjansson-dev libjansson4 automake autoconf
./autogen.sh CFLAGS="-O3 -Wall -msse2" 
./configure
make
make install
./minerd --url http://pit.deepbit.net:8332 --userpass Username:Password

 

You might want to use StratumProxy rather than mining on a Pool directly, to make sure your miner is using the best mining methods.
Unfortunately devices like the Pi, OLinuXino, Hackberry, Cubieboard etc. only give around 290 khash/sec.
