Step by step mining for a noob

Hi there,
I installed featherwallet on Linux mint and would like to start mining. I can’t seem to find a proper tutorial on how to mine directly from the wallet.
Can anyone help please?
Thank you

The best way to mine Wownero is with xmrig. You can download the software at XMRig.com. XMRig even allows you to mine directly to the daemon, but I doubt it works with featherwallet, so you may need to have the official Wownero daemon (ie: wownerod) running. You can download the Wownero daemon software here: Releases - wownero - WowGit!

If you get confused, you can easily mine to a Wownero pool like https://Wowne.ro instead of to the daemon. Download XMRig and use their “Wizard” link to setup the miner software with Wowne.ro pool

I know doc that you asked couple weeks ago but this is my “as basic as possible” instruction for start to mining WOWnero.

Cryptocurrency: WOWnero (WOW) Official website: https://wownero.org/

Mining on PC - Windows:

  1. Register new wallet for your WOWnero coins: https://wowstash.app/

  2. Make a copy of your New Wallet info (Address, Secrets - Mnemonic Seed, Spend Key, View Key)

  3. Download latest mining software: SRBMiner-Multi-x-x-x-win64.zip
    from Releases · doktor83/SRBMiner-Multi · GitHub and unzip to your location

  4. In Notepad (Windows standard App) copy/paste below text (replace wallet part with your
    Wallet Address):

setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_MAX_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_MAX_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_ENABLE_LARGE_ALLOCATION 100
setx GPU_MAX_WORKGROUP_SIZE 1024
@echo off
cd %~dp0
cls
SRBMiner-MULTI.exe --algorithm randomwow --pool wownero.herominers.com:10661 --wallet
Wo4mwZwpKxQ64EuMKfZgThHgbonk4LwLG3WguXNvAjXeb2d26Yz6JgdUNVGWh7VRifd86KddiN29
pause

  1. Save above file as: wownero_mine_PC.bat

  2. Right click on the new created file wownero_mine_PC.bat and use option “Run as Administrator”

  3. To check mining progress, go to: Wownero Mining Pool - HeroMiners and under “Lookup” bar paste your Wallet Address

  4. Happy mining

p.s. Please note that line with “–wallet” are only “SPACE” - do not use “ENTER/RETURN” - just one long line

Please let me know if there are any problems with above setup.

I went the other route and it just didn’t work out for me but this method was my solution… If I was new again I would still try xmrig and everything else above first but, if all else, fails, this is the solution IMO.
