macOS Installation: XMRig (Crypto Miner Software)

Post by macminergod »

XMRig is a high performance, open source, cross platform RandomX, KawPow, CryptoNight and AstroBWT CPU/GPU miner, RandomX benchmark and stratum proxy.


Install XMRig on macOS


Update: You can download and install already to use XMRig here.



1. Install Homebrew. Open Terminal and type:

Code: Select all

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)"

2. After Homebrew installation completes, install XMRIG. In Terminal, type:

Code: Select all

hint:

try to build with forked: https://github.com/hwh57/kawpowminer
cd desktop
git clone https://github.com/hwh57/kawpowminer
cd kawpowminer
git submodule update --init --recursive
mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DETHASHCL=ON -DETHASHCUDA=OFF
make -sj $(nproc)
the original "kawpowminer" got some issues when building !!

My understanding is OPENCl and Xmrig won’t work, very depreciated in macOS. I looked on GitHub and everyone has same issue with Mac GPU’s. Need to compile Ethminer, which I’m working on and will document M1 and AMD mining speeds

You don't need brew to install, use the compiled version from XMRig. It runs out of the box
