Ethereum Mining using Linux

Ethereum Mining using Linux

Here is how I started mining Ethereum using my Linux PC.
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ethereum/ethereum
sudo apt-get update
I used Coinbase as they have a really good app to create an Ethereum wallet. You can use whatever you like but take a note of your wallet address as we will need it soon. Now run this command with your address in place.
If you feel generous you can donate to my wallet or just run the following command to mine to my address for a couple of days.
ethminer  -F
