    I'd like to mine with SGMiner on Linux. How do I connect to a p2p pool, say the forum one? It's a first one for me.

    Hey great question I'll walk you through it.

    Step 1.) Download SGMINER
    Code:
    git clone https://github.com/prettyhatemachine/sph-sgminer
    Step 2.) Start SGMINER with your wallet address.

    Code:
    ./minerd -k darkcoin -o stratum+tcp://p2pool.darkcointalk.org:7903 -u (YOUR DARKCOIN ADDRESS) -p 123
    Step 3.) Profit

    Firstly, when I do the 'git clone' there's a directory I should cd into. There, I believe is the source that I should compile?
    Also, the command is ./sgminer, or isn't it?
    When I do, it doesn't seem to detect my nVidia GPU, but I believe this version should?
    Update: Ok, I am confused. F. A. Q. says "SGminer for AMD GPU's, CCminer 1.0 for Nvidia GPU's " So SGminer doesn't support nVidia GPU's, no way? Should I go with ccMiner instead? Or cudaMiner?

    Sgminer is not compatible with nvidia cards. Unfortunately, I can not help you with that. Look into ccminer for Darkcoin.

    Ccminer. Should be a post about it in the mining section.
