- Today Cellminer: Bitcoin Miner for the Cell Broadband Engine Architecture (CBEA) was made available via Github for Sony's PS3 entertainment system.
For those curious, this was developed on a PlayStation 3 using Debian GNU / Linux 6.0.1.
Download: Cellminer Auto Installer
From the ReadMe:
Debian Packages [aptitude install ...]
(packages marked - should be included automatically as dependencies of packages marked â€¢)
[gem1.9.1 install ...]
In order to make use of your SPEs under Linux, you must have spufs mounted on /spu. For example:
# mount -t spufs spufs /spu
Or equivalently, ensure /etc/fstab contains a line similar to the following:
spufs /spu spufs defaults 0 0
$ ./cellminer --help
RPC username and password will default to those found in ~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf.
