You need to give it some arguments, username, etc. For pooled mining: https://github.com/Diablo-D3/DiabloMiner/wiki/Pooled-Mining

swivel, could you add something in it with starting fan speed? something like 50%...


when I turn on the script, it's starts from the idle and until get to the desired speed, the GPU gets very hot, even with sleep 5


could be done?


and works like a charm, thank you very much

Yup just add the following after the export line:

Code:
export DISPLAY=:0.${DEVICE}
aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 50"

I didn't test yet, but seems good for my porpose... I will test later today, but I have one question.

this line is correct?


Code:
        CURSPD=`aticonfig --pplib-cmd "get fanspeed 0" | grep Result | sed  's/.* \([0-9]*[0-9][0-9]\)\%.*/\1/'`

the get fanspeed 0 part... is 0 for device?
if yes, I will just change it to 1 over device 2, correct?

Yes that's correct. aticonfig get the parameters for the card according to the DISPLAY variable. The DISPLAY variable has the device number assigned to it:

Code:
export DISPLAY=:0.${DEVICE}

Build your own. You just need a PCI-e expansion chassis. Speaking of has any one used one of these http://www.dell.com/us/business/p/poweredge-c410x/pd

OK I think this is more what you want.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

MAXSPD=80
MINSPD=20

if [ $# -lt 2 ];
then
        echo "Usage: setfantemp.sh <deviceid> <temp>"
        exit 1
fi

DEVICE=$1
SETTEMP=$2

export DISPLAY=:0.${DEVICE}
aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 ${MAXSPD}"

while true;
do
        CURTEMP=`aticonfig --adapter=${DEVICE} --odgt | grep Temp | sed  's/.* \([0-9]*[0-9][0-9]\)\..*/\1/'`
        CURSPD=`aticonfig --pplib-cmd "get fanspeed 0" | grep Result | sed  's/.* \([0-9]*[0-9][0-9]\)\%.*/\1/'`

        echo -n "Set temp: ${SETTEMP}C Current temp: ${CURTEMP}C Current speed: ${CURSPD}% - "

        if [ "${CURTEMP}" -ne "${SETTEMP}" ]; then
                if [ "${CURTEMP}" -lt "${SETTEMP}" ]; then
                        NEWSPD=$((${CURSPD} - 1))
                        if [ "${NEWSPD}" -lt "${MINSPD}" ]; then
                                echo "MIN speed limit"
                        else
                                echo "Decreasing speed to ${NEWSPD}"
                        fi
                else
                        NEWSPD=$((${CURSPD} + 1))
                        if [ "${NEWSPD}" -gt "${MAXSPD}" ]; then
                                echo "MAX speed limit"
                        else
                                echo "Increasing speed to ${NEWSPD}"
                                aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 ${NEWSPD}"
                        fi
                fi
        else
                echo "Stable"
        fi
        sleep 10
done


Save to setfantemp.sh. To run:

Code:
# ./setfantemp.sh 0 55 &

That will set your target temperature for card 0 to 55C. The script will adjust the fan speed to hit that target.

Max fan speed and min fan speed are hard coded in the script to be 80% and 20% respectively. You can raise the max speed if your card isn't getting cooled to your target temp.

Here's a simple shell script. Save as fanmon.sh.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

DEVICE=$1
if [ "${DEVICE}" == "" ];
then
        echo "Usage: fanmon.sh <deviceid>"
        exit 1
fi

# temp levels in C
# fan speeds in %
MAXTEMP=80
MAXFAN=99

MIDTEMP=60
MIDFAN=70

MINTEMP=40
MINFAN=50

IDLEFAN=20
LASTTEMP=0

export DISPLAY=:0.${DEVICE}

while true;
do
        TEMP=`aticonfig --adapter=${DEVICE} --odgt | grep Temp | sed  's/.* \([0-9]*[0-9][0-9]\)\..*/\1/'`
        if [ "${TEMP}" -ne "${LASTTEMP}" ];
        then
                echo -n "Temp: ${TEMP}C "
                if [ "${TEMP}" -gt "${MAXTEMP}" ];
                then
                        echo "setting fan speed ${MAXFAN}%"
                        aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 ${MAXFAN}"
                elif [ "${TEMP} -gt ${MIDTEMP}" ];
                then
                        echo "setting fan speed ${MIDFAN}%"
                        aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 ${MIDFAN}"
                elif [ "${TEMP} -gt ${MINTEMP}" ];
                then
                        echo "setting fan speed ${MINFAN}%"
                        aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 ${MINFAN}"
                else
                        echo "setting fan speed ${IDLEFAN}%"
                        aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 ${IDLEFAN}"
                fi
        fi
        LASTTEMP=${TEMP}
        sleep 10
done


Run it like so:
Code:
# ./fanmon.sh 0 &

Adjust the temperature thresholds so the fan speed doesn't jump up and down.

You should have two screen sections one for each card. See my xorg.conf. Change the PCI bus ID for the second card. Mine is on PCI:3:0:0 yours is PCI:2:0:0.

Frankly I'd recommend installing Windows using Bootcamp, overclocking your card with MSI Afterburner and then using poclbm. Gave me a much higher hashrate than using Diablominer in OS X.

It's supposedly better in 10.7 Lion.
10  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: Step-By-Step guide on how setup a GPU miner w/ mining pool? Mac OS X on: July 08, 2011, 08:19:22 AM
Here's a GUI front end to Diablo Miner for Mac if you don't want to mess with the terminal: http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=8994.0

First adapter:

Code:
DISPLAY=:0.0 aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 80"

Second adapter:

Code:
DISPLAY=:0.1 aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 80"
12  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Total Lack of Linux Software on: July 08, 2011, 04:04:26 AM
You can overclock beyond BIOS limits using the new Catalyst 11.6 drivers without having to reflash. You can underclock memory to 300 using AMDOverdrivectrl. Not sure you gain much going below 300. There are also 3-5% gains with some of the changes to the phatk kernel. Do a search.

If you're going through the trouble of installing the latest drivers, setting up the APP SDK and compiling PyOpenCL to get your miner working why bother with a GUI when a 2 line shell script will do.

So this is where you come to pad your post count.
14  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Only able to access first GPU on: July 08, 2011, 02:35:09 AM
Try:

Code:
sudo aticonfig --initial --adapter=all -f

then reboot / restart X.

I use this method but with TWOFISH cipher instead of the default CAST5.

Code:
gpg -c --cipher-algo twofish wallet.dat
16  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Need some help (easy questions) on: July 07, 2011, 05:34:51 AM
Try and underclock the memory. That should drop temps. Are you running stock clocks? 168Mh/s seems low for a 5770.
