I just installed BFGMINER on my Ubuntu 12.04LTS laptop and it won't let me set it up with my pool.

administrator@T41-Server:~$ sudo bfgminer -o api.bitcoin.cz:8332 -u wizardmorax.ibm_ubuntu -px -S all
bfgminer: error while loading shared libraries: libblkmaker_jansson-0.1.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I followed a tutorial for installing BFGMINER http://www.linuxconsultantsireland.com/content/bitcoin-mining-raspberry-pi-usb-asic-miner-block-erupter

Thanks, Jackson

  • Why are you running it as root? That could be one problem. Also you should be connecting to stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333 not the API.

  • You appear to be using a version compiled under a different system. If you'd compiled it on yours then the library should be present.
