I'm following The Complete Guide To Mine Bitcoin on Xubuntu 12.04,
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Gw7YPYgMgNNU42skibULbJJUx_suP_CpjSEdSi8_z9U/edit?pli=1, which so far looks promising.

My difficulty comes in Section VI, Install CGMiner of the guide. It says to

Code:
wget http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/cgminer-2.7.5-x86_64-built.tar.bz2

...but I shouldn't do this because I have a 32-bit system. The directory does not show a built version for 32-bit systems. However, it does have cgminer-2.7.5.tar.bz2, but this is not a built version.

The instructions from this point forward assume a built version. I have the unbuilt cgminer-2.7.5.tar.bz2 but I don't know how to build it. Any help with building this would be very much appreciated.

Ok...I managed to get this far: I did
Code:
./configure
and that ran. But, at the end of the process, I got this message:

Quote
curses.TUI...........:FOUND: ncurses
OpenCL...............:NOT FOUND. GPU mining support DISABLED

That can't be good. I downloaded the ati catalyst package and that works. I thought it was supposed to install OpenCl. Does anyone know where I can get OpenCl?

I have a Radeon HD 6570 on an Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit system.

Thanks!

Be better off posting your questions in the main CGMiner development thread.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=28402.0

Kano wrote a guide which is he has linked in his sig, but his was for a previous version which I believe he still prefers. He is a developer of cgminer and currently seems the most active in helping with questions/problems posted there. I will repost these 2 post there untill you get out of the newbies section.


Reposted it here for you.

Well I'm not gonna teach someone how to use linux if that is the problem Smiley

The cgminer README tells you the steps how to compile cgminer.
It's all in there.

But also there is no reason at all that I can think of to use a 32bit linux.
If you downloaded the 64bit linux instead of the 32bit version then you can run the 2.7.5 binary release you download from ckolivas.

However, for a 6xxx series GPU, it is better to use the 11.6 driver and the 2.4 SDK
If you don't have a 7xxx running in the same machine, the version (in my sig 11.04) will run the best, when GPU mining with a 6xxx card.
... and then download the the same binary build 2.7.5 by ckolvias and then just replace the cgminer executable by my 2.7.5a version that is compiled on 11.04 in my downloads: https://github.com/kanoi/cgminer/downloads

Thanks much to all for their help. The trouble I was experiencing was definitely due to my lack of knowledge of Linux and not due to cgminer. After 18 hours, I finally was able to get it installed and running. I estimate that 90% of my problems came from trying to reconcile the readme instructions within the ADL SDK and AMD APP with the cgminer readme. Again, this is not a problem with cgminer, but with my Linux knowledge. This would most likely not be an issue for those experienced with Linux.

I have another 32-bit system (but no other GPUs) so I'll try and recreate my steps and will post the steps I should have taken in case any other Linux newbs could benefit from it.

I'll be doing this on a second computer soon.

Next time, should I just ignore the readme files in the AMD APP SDK and in the ADL SDK?
