I am playing around with bitcoin mining. I have set up a full node on an ODroid C2 device. I am running Ubuntu 16.04 and Bitcoin core. That seems to be running find. It is keeping up with the block chain with no errors.
I downloaded the cpuminer source and built it without errors.
When I run it it starts up the 4 mining threads, but always gives and error that the host returned a 404 error.
I have the rpc set up and am using the correct username and password.
I am using the default ip address for localhost and the default port of 8882.
Can someone explain what I have done wrong that minerd won't connect to the local bitcoin node?
