Hey everyone,

A friend and I decided to make a joint venture and set up a mining rig. We set it up running windows 7 off an old hard drive,
and have found various clients worked perfectly on it.

However, phoenix has the promising allure of a 5-20% performance boost, so I've been trying to mess around with
setting that up

I've used the following guides:

To make a usb version of linux--
http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/

To (try and) install phoenix and everything else--
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=50388.0

The USB linux works fine, and installing phoenix goes mostly without error.

The following problems come up though, from the second guide I posted:
"screen -S update sudo apt-get install fglrx vim openssh-server subversion git-core python-numpy g++ libboost-all-dev" -- liboost-all-dev cannot be found, or does not exist. It won't let me download unless I remove that line.

"make -j3
sudo make install" -- both steps give errors, I can retry and get specifics or screenies if needed.

Additionally, and finally, whenever I turn off the computer, any changes I've made revert to my stock linux. How do I fix that?


I've tried doing some searching on my own, but my lack of familiarity with linux is a real roadblock. If you can help, either post here or message me. I'd be willing to donate some BTC for your troubles.
Thanks~

The feature you're speaking of is called BFI_INT patching. It's a core part of cgminer for the last ~5 builds. You're perfectly fine switching back to windows and using the latest version of cgminer to utilize this feature.

If you're wanting to stay with linux, i can help too, let me know.
