How to Set up BFGMiner on the Raspbian on the Raspberry Pi.
Use your USB ASICs with the Low power Raspberry Pi, to get maximum efficiency for power to BTC.

The Rasbian OS does not contain a lot of support for this sort of thing so you need to follow this guide:

Step 0 :
To set-up find out the IP address then SSH into it using PuTTY:

Step 1: Update to latest Version
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude upgrade

Step 2: Install Librarys
sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libjansson-dev uthash-dev libncurses5-dev libudev-dev autoconf automake libtool pkg-config screen

Step 3: Get BFGMiner
git clone git://github.com/luke-jr/bfgminer
(use: ls to find where it is)
cd bfgminer

Step 4 Configure the Software for Compiling
./autogen.sh
./configure
make
(optional: then use sudo make install to have it system wide. Not advised)

Step 5:Run BFGMiner
(stay in the bfgminer software then use below command changing caps to your settings.)

screen -S Mining ./bfgminer -o stratum+tcp://POOL.com:PORT -u USER -p PASSWORD

Step 6: Using Screen
then to do something else hit
Ctrl A D

and to get back to it use
screen -ls to see your running screens
then screen -r 0000 to get back to your screen

However If you are using Nanofury/Ice Fury you need HIDAPI which is VERY hit and miss and more likely miss than hit at the moment.
git clone git://github.com/signal11/hidapi
cd hidapi
./bootstrap
./configure
make
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig
However this still might not work so check out video tomorrow on Minepeon:
