Just updated the guide.

Thanks for feedback!

That is the easiest tutorial for Ubuntu / Xubuntu 12.04

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Gw7YPYgMgNNU42skibULbJJUx_suP_CpjSEdSi8_z9U/edit

if you get some wierd liburl 4 error type:

sudo apt-get install curl

that solves the problem.

I hope that helped.

If it did: 1DoqqekDSuVM3hEet396rjqFypb63SHoS9 is my adress.
4  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: How to force Catalyst 11.11 drivers (and SDK 2.5) to install on Xubuntu 12.4 on: June 19, 2012, 04:06:29 AM
Great article!

I've also described the steps to install catalyst 11 on xubuntu 12.04.

Take a look!

Complete Guide To Mine Bitcoin on Xubuntu 12.04
http://goo.gl/vP3G9

I thought I would share this technique I discovered through trail error for forcing the Catalyst 11.11 driver to install on Xubuntu 12.4

First you will need to download the drivers from the AMD archive, you can try to wget it, but for some reason I have problems with that so I just download through a browser.

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/previous/11/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx?os=Linux%20x86&rev=11.11

Chmod +x the download to make it executable (chmod +x ati-driver-installer-11-11-x86.x86_64.run)

Enter super user mode by using sudo before each of the following lines......or make life easy and just use sudo -i to get a root prompt.

(sudo) sh ./ati-driver-installer-11-11-x86.x86_64.run  --buildpkg Ubuntu/precise

After a couple of dialogs it will finish and you should have three new packages in the directory.

IMPORTANT: It is vital to run this next command and let it error out!!!!!!!!!!!!

(sudo) dpkg -i fglrx*.deb

This step is needed or else the software installer in the next step will just download and install the latest drivers and SDK instead of repairing the dependency cache issue.



Navaigate with the file manager to (fglrx-amdcccle_8.911-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb).

Right click and open the file with the "Ubuntu software manager".

The software manager will indicate the install has a dependency cache error, click the repair button to have the manager repair the cache. Walk away have a soda, beer whatever..it will take a few minutes.

When finished, the manager will indicate it is installed.

You are finished with the install...that is it, everything including the SDK is installed.

Just remember to do (sudo) aticonfig --adapter=all --initial and reboot to get the Xorg configuration set with the ATI drivers.

PS.... Don't forget to export DISPLAY=:0 and export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1, in fact just put those in a script along with your miner start up.


Hope this helps somebody out and avoids hours of frustration...I have personal experience ... Cheesy

I met the same problem while reinstalling xubuntu.

The problem is solved after I upgrade the system by:

Code:
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade

Hope that helps!

Thanks for your Help & Answers but I give up , cant solve this Tongue , I'm back to windows until next drivers updates for my 7000 series

Thanks guys !

Hello, I've write a complete guide to mine at xubuntu 12.04.

Please check it and leave some comments!

http://goo.gl/vP3G9

Hey peoples! 

I need a guide on how to get two 7970s mining under ubuntu/xubuntu...  There are a few guides out right now but they don't really work, or something is missing, they are untested, and I'm having a lot of trouble with it. 

Pleeaaasee point me in the right direction!
7  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: AMD APP SDK 2.7 performance? on: May 28, 2012, 12:25:38 AM
I think it's tiny difference (~0.7%), and I'm still testing the stability of both drivers.

For me, stability is more important than performance.

I think AMD has tweak some settings toward 7970.

....

7970 with Freq/Mem as 1125/975
DriverSDKPerformance
12.32.6660~666
12.42.7655~661


That's what I was looking for. So even with a 7xxx series card the new version is still slower? Is this an SDK issue, or you think it's just that current kernels are not written for 2.7?

I think AMD has tweak some settings toward 7970.

6970 & 6990 with Freq/Mem as 920/795
DriverSDKPerformance
11.112.5410~413
12.32.6410~413

Tested on Linux and ATi Radeon HD 5850. AMD APP SDK 2.7 in system with Catalyst 12.4 was installed manually. Cg Miner 2.4.1. Core Peak - 750 MHz, Memory Peak - 250 MHz.

Driver  SDK  Perfomance

12.1     2.6   301.9 Mh/s
12.4     2.7   298.5 Mh/s
11.11   2.5   307 Mh/s

I also use CGMiner. What kernel was this? Phatk? It was my impression that if you have to use 2.6 on a 58xx card, diablo was better than phatk.

The fact that it doesn't give amazing results on a 58xx cards doesn't surprise me, and it's kinda why I havn't upgraded myself. Anyone with a 7xxx card tried it out?

Nothing I can do more...

How about skip this step and try cgminer detection directly? If cgminer shows your cores correctly, then you're ready to do.

Code:
export DISPLAY=:0
export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1

./cgminer -n

Same:

ERROR - Get temperature failed for adapter 0 - AMD Radeon HD 7700 series
ERROR - Get temperature failed for adapter 1 - AMD Radeon HD 7700 series
10  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: My video cards + Linux on: May 23, 2012, 05:49:18 AM
Try the following commands before aticonfig:

Code:
export DISPLAY=:0
export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1

sudo aticonfig --adapter=all --odgt

On Settings > AMD Catalyst Control Center > Information > Software :

Driver Packaging version : 8.96.7
2D Driver version : 8.96.4
Catalyst Control center Version : 2.14
RandR Version: 1.3


11  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: My video cards + Linux on: May 23, 2012, 05:40:10 AM
I'm not sure what happened...

Have you installed Catalyst 12.4?

7xxx need Catalyst > 11.12 to be recognized.

Hello !

I test it , and its works but not very well but its better.

1 Question , what i need to do in the xorg.conf on :

IV.Config AMD Driver

Check if all your cards can be detected and then write configuration to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

And

On terminal last step :

sudo aticonfig --adapter=all --odgt

I get :

ERROR - Get temperature failed for adapter 0 - AMD Radeon HD 7700 series
ERROR - Get temperature failed for adapter 1 - AMD Radeon HD 7700 series

I Have Two cards ( 7770 )

And every time I move the mouse I get a line on the screen ( its annoying )

If you can tell me something or someone else ! Thanks @lueo

You might want to try Xubuntu. At least mine went smoothly.

I've wrote a guide of it. Hope that can help you.

Corrected. Thanks!

Found an error.

Firstly, Iíd like to thank Kanoi, who wrote an excellent howto guide on ďHow to setup a cgminer using xubuntu 11.04 live on a USBĒ. However, I donít need to mine on a USB (itís slow compare to a HDD). Also, his guide didnít update with the latest version of Xubuntu (12.04), which in my opinion is the easiest version of Xubuntu ever to mine bitcoin with.

Althought to mine on Xubuntu 12.04 is relatively easy, there are still some pitfalls I want to you to avoid, so I wrote this guide.

For the latest version, please visit the following address:

Wow. I didn't even know that. The "VIP password" is a mystery to me. I finally got it after searching the whole thread.

I think a separate report for each client is very helpful, like NothinG's suggestion.

The "VIP password" doesn't do anything except affect the deprecated RRD graphs.
That's what I said, I think, lol.
17  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [340GH/s] p2pool: Decentralized, DoS-resistant, Hop-Proof pool on: March 25, 2012, 07:08:43 PM
Agree with NothinG.

I am going to open my pool to some of my friends, so I need to test if miner's own bitcoin address is working. That's why I use bitcoin address as miner's name.

Now it seems working, but they can't easily find their own statistics.

Hm.. Is it possible for you to use the "-a" argument to p2pool to set the address instead of the miner username? The miner username is only really useful if you have a public p2pool node that others mine on.
It would be cool if miners had their own personal graphs and JSON. Wink
Like: http://poolnode.com:9332/graphs/{minerID/btcAddress}.html
18  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [340GH/s] p2pool: Decentralized, DoS-resistant, Hop-Proof pool on: March 25, 2012, 06:53:33 PM
Thanks for forrestv's answering!

Yes, I've change my miners' username from "miner1" to "1NxxxxxxxxUYS" (a Bitcoin Address).

I really don't know that the "current payout" only display the payout of the default address. It's confusing, because I won't know the overall performance of my p2pool node.

Could p2pool seperate the graph to show the overall performance and individual miner's performance?

I have 2 questions:

1. Why did it go down?
2. Will it go up? Why?

Are you mining to a different address by setting your miner's username to a Bitcoin address? The "current payout" graph only displays bitcoins going to the default address. Did you maybe change your miner's username to a Bitcoin address about 24 hours ago..?
19  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [340GH/s] p2pool: Decentralized, DoS-resistant, Hop-Proof pool on: March 25, 2012, 03:19:25 PM
I have 2 questions:

1. Why did it go down?
2. Will it go up? Why?

It doesn't go up like echris1 said. It had going down from 0.5 to 0.03 and now it's 0.04. Way below the average.

Update to the latest version (git pull), restarted it...

Still the same!

I have set an option "--fee 5.0", will it affect my current payout?


Well, your payout has gone up again, but it will take a day or so of constant running to push that payout rate back up.

The fee shouldn't affect you, since the --fee tag is only applied to people mining on your node with their payout address as a username, for example if your running a public node. And even if you did do it that way, those fees should be put into the wallet on your P2Pool node.
