You'll attain about 0.1MH/s with an overclocked and overvolted Raspberry Pi. 963437 years on average to generate a block, or averaged to 0.00000007 BTC a day when using a pool. Not enough to cover the 5W power draw.


The Pi is a very slow computer. You will expend a lot of effort for very little reward. You would generally run Raspbian.

Then, you would install CGMiner. But as I said, it will be mostly a learning experience, rather than a means of profit.
