I'm following this tutorial to set up Ubuntu mining on Ubuntu 12.10 32 bit. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Gw7YPYgMgNNU42skibULbJJUx_suP_CpjSEdSi8_z9U/preview?sle=true

At last step they suggesting to check out settings with ./cgminer -n. I've got this

kirill@kirill-desktop:~/cgminer-2.11.4-x86_64-built$ ./cgminer -n

bash: ./cgminer: cannot execute binary file  

What's wrong with me?

  • Doesn't work. Receiving -------> kirill@kirill-desktop:~/Downloads/phoenix2-phoenix-2c83ee6$ ./setup.pyusage: setup.py [global_opts] cmd1 [cmd1_opts] [cmd2 [cmd2_opts] ...] or: setup.py --help [cmd1 cmd2 ...] or: setup.py --help-commands or: setup.py cmd --help error: no commands supplied Looks like it was a stupid idea to deal with those coins... – Kirill Ivanov Apr 16 '13 at 10:42

You're using a 64 bit cgminer on 32 bit ubuntu


Yes, you need a 32 (i686) bits version of the miner, in this case i'm not seeing on of those on the wget link
