Bitcoin Mining for Ubuntu Natty Narwhal (Ubuntu v11.04)


You can use this guide with this mining pool perfectly: https://eclipsemc.com

Here are the steps you need to take to get mining on Ubuntu's latest OS:

This guide is for installing AMD SDK v2.1.  
If you want to install v2.4 for 6xxxx series cards, please see the next post with instructions for v2.4.


If you find this guide useful, please consider donating.  Donation address: 168Bgg6HL6bLiUxQDBbdmHRbXtSsMixYCT

First, install Natty on the HD or USB stick  of your choice, accepting all the defaults as appropriate.
Once you are booted into your new OS install, do these steps in a terminal window, or
if you wish and it's easier you can do it from an SSH session.

Code:
Optional First Step (Skip this if you don't care about SSH):
Optional 1: Press the upper left 'start' button on the desktop and in the search field enter 'terminal'.  Click it and open a terminal window.

In the terminal window, type:

sudo apt-get install openssh-server

This will install the SSH server.  Once the server is installed, you can connect to your machine via SSH and perform the rest of the steps listed below.

END Optional First Step

From here on out, the steps should be conducted either in a terminal window or an SSH session.


1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
2. sudo apt-get update
3. sudo apt-get install screen
4. screen -S update sudo apt-get install fglrx vim openssh-server g++ libboost-all-dev subversion git-core python-numpy
5. Enter your password.
6. Once the updates are going, press CTRL-A then press D.  You should detach from the screen and be returned to a prompt.
7. screen -d -m -S icd wget http://download2-developer.amd.com/amd/Stream20GA/icd-registration.tgz
8. screen -d -m -S pyopencl wget https://eclipsemc.com/files/python-jsonrpc.tar.gz

32-bit 9. screen -d -m -S stream wget http://download2-developer.amd.com/amd/Stream20GA/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx32.tgz
or
64-bit 9. screen -d -m -S stream wget http://download2-developer.amd.com/amd/Stream20GA/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64.tgz

10. screen -r stream
10a. If you get a "There is no screen to be resumed" message, continue on.  Otherwise, you should get a download status, wait until it's done, then continue on.

11. sudo tar xvfz ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx??.tgz -C /opt
12. sudo tar xvfz icd-registration.tgz -C /
13. tar zxfv pyopencl-0.92.tar.gz
14. screen -r update
14a. If you get a "There is no screen to be resumed" mesasge, continue on.  Otherwise, wait for the update to finish. You will be returned to a prompt when it's done.
15. svn checkout http://svn.json-rpc.org/trunk/python-jsonrpc
16. svn checkout http://svn3.xp-dev.com/svn/phoenix-miner/trunk
17. git clone git://github.com/m0mchil/poclbm poclbm
18. mv trunk phoenix
19. echo export DISPLAY=:0 >> ~/.bashrc
20. cd pyopencl-0.92

32-bit 21. sudo sh -c 'echo "/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx32/lib/x86/" >> /etc/ld.so.conf.d/local.conf'
32-bit 22. ./configure.py --cl-inc-dir=/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx32/include/ --cl-lib-dir=/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx32/lib/x86
or
64-bit 21. sudo sh -c 'echo "/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64/lib/x86_64/" >> /etc/ld.so.conf.d/local.conf'
64-bit 22. ./configure.py --cl-inc-dir=/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64/include/ --cl-lib-dir=/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64/lib/x86_64

23. sudo ldconfig
24. source ~/.bashrc
25. make -j3
26. sudo make install
27. cd ../python-jsonrpc
28. sudo python setup.py install
29. cd ~
30. chmod +x phoenix/phoenix.py poclbm/poclbm.py
31. sudo aticonfig --initial -f --adapter=all
32. sudo reboot


That's it, you're done.

You should now have a fully functional Ubuntu 11.04 mining rig with Phoenix and poclbm installed. To test it out, you can go into the poclbm directory and run poclbm without any switches and see if your graphics card(s) show up. Do this with:

cd poclbm
./poclbm.py


It should list your CPU (possibly) and your graphics cores available.

Here's a couple useful tricks for working with your graphics cards:

To display the temperature of your cores:

aticonfig --odgt --adapter=all

To display the clock speeds of your cores:

aticonfig --odgc --adapter=all

To show or set your fan speed:

Shows fan speed
aticonfig --pplib-cmd "get fanspeed 0"

Sets fan speed to 100%
aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 100"

If you have multiple cores, you'll need to export a different display variable to access the different cores, like this:

Show fan speed on 2nd card:  
export DISPLAY=:0.1; aticonfig --pplib-cmd "get fanspeed 0"

You can change the .1 to .2, .3 etc... for how many cards you have in the system.

To change your clock rates:

Set your core clock to 900MHz and your memory clock to 1000MHz on all cards. Change according to your desire.
aticonfig --od-setclocks=900,1000 --adapter=all

To set for a particular card, change --adapter=all to the adapter number you want to change.

That should take care of just about everything you need to do to mine in a Bitcoin pool.

Great guide. I just went through all this on my own yesterday before you posted this.  Cheesy

The only major difference with my process for 11.04 (besides running 32-bit) is that I did use the 2.4 AMD ATI SDK, and have seen 5-10% better performance than that shown for my card with the 2.1 SDK on the https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison page. I get 83 Mhash/s, not 78 Mhash/s as shown on the wiki for the ATI 4870.

Otherwise, these steps are more or less exactly what I followed!

I tried 2.4 and got about 10% less performance out of 2.4, so I went back to 2.1.  The difference you are probably seeing in the guide is the difference between the modern miner and the one the guide was put together with.  Your extra hashes are about what you'd see with the BF_INT performance enhancement introduced into the miners recently.

pyopencl made just fine, and its installed apparently. Any ideas?

I think you may need a step after 12.

Code:
12a. echo export ATISTREAMSDKROOT=/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64 >> .bashrc

As per the ATI documentation. The miner will run fine without it but later upgrades, builds, etc may need this variable.

Also, I have a recollection that "python-jsonrpc" is no longer necessary to be installed ... but icbw.

pyopencl made just fine, and its installed apparently. Any ideas?

This problem is almost <i>always</i> related to the fact that the /opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64/lib/x86_64 environment variable isn't set.

What does this command return:

echo $PATH

Also, make sure you've done steps 11 - 13 properly, as that's where it gets set.

Also, I have a recollection that "python-jsonrpc" is no longer necessary to be installed ... but icbw.

I will add that additional env var if it ever becomes necessary.  No sense in setting it if it's not used at the moment.

I'll also check into the python-jsonrpc thing and see if that's the case and remove it if so.  Thanks for the tips!

I just recently started getting that error as well, but it doesn't seem to affect anything.  I will investigate further as to why it's showing up, but you can ignore it for now.

On ArchLinux (yes, this OS is better, just look how simple it is !) :

1. Install catalyst and amdstream from the AUR.
2. Install python2-pyopencl from the official packages and python2-jsonrpc-svn from the AUR.
3. Run your miner.

And Ubuntu is supposed to be noob-friendly ? I can't believe it ! Never mind the fact that the "Ubuntu-way" is a real pain to keep updated too.

pyopencl made just fine, and its installed apparently. Any ideas?

Did you configure pyopencl with explicit directions to find the AMD APP SDK? I tried initially leaving off the explicit --cl-inc-dir and --cl-lib-dir and I got the same error you had. This fixed it:
Code:
./configure.py --cl-inc-dir=/path/to/AMD-APP-SDK-v2.4-lnx32/include --cl-lib-dir=/path/to/AMD-APP-SDK-v2.4-lnx32/lib/x86

Code:
export ATISTREAMSDKROOT=/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64

and

Code:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64/lib/x86_64/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

set these yet?

I just recently started getting that error as well, but it doesn't seem to affect anything.  I will investigate further as to why it's showing up, but you can ignore it for now.


I confirm this error too on Xubuntu 11.04 AMD64

Is it preventing you from mining?

Code:
export ATISTREAMSDKROOT=/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64

and

Code:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64/lib/x86_64/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

set these yet?


Who is this directed at?

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

Did you set your display env variable?

Code:
echo export DISPLAY=:0 >> .bashrc
source .bashrc

Also, if you're running the miner as root, run the miner as a non-privileged user and see if the error persists. There's no need to be root for it.

Btw, instead of exporting your library path, it's probably better to add the config file for those paths to /etc/ld.so.conf.d, then they are applied globally to all accounts.
