Mining with flypool (linux cpu) guide

Open terminal and run the following commands:

sudo apt-get install cmake build-essential libboost-all-dev

git clone -b Linux https://github.com/nicehash/nheqminer.git

cd nheqminer/cpu_xenoncat/Linux/asm/

sh assemble.sh

cd ../../../Linux_cmake/nheqminer_cpu

cmake .

make -j $(nproc)

When you're done, you will see that the file builds to home/user/nheqminer/Linux_cmake/nheqminer_cpu

So then use the command: cd nheqminer/Linux_cmake/nheqminer_cpu

Start your miner using a command like:
./nheqminer_cpu -l us1-zcash.flypool.org:3333 -u t1cX6oqQY1wd8FQCyW9YJyRSh3Qyt3Ymetm.rig2

Now you're done!

The instructions from flypools github page were unclear on a thing or 2 and it caused me to spend a lot of time troubleshooting, so I made this to help out some people that might run into the same issue.

Thanks for this,

I as well had to troubleshoot while bouncing from reference tab to tab in my browser.

FWIW on Ubuntu 16.04 compiling the latest fork of nheqminer for CPU won't compile for me and at least for one other person: due to out of memory error/bug(?) in fasm. But can compile previous version 0.1c

when I input the following from above: git clone -b Linux https://github.com/nicehash/nheqminer.git7
it asks for a username and password? Which username and password are they referring to?

Those links don't go anywhere anymore, not sure why.
