Hello dear members!

I just got a 2nd rig dedicated for mining and i thought using Ubuntu (no experience with Linux what so ever).
I have follow this thread (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=189499.0) and having problems.

Im right at this step:
Code:
sudo -s
###################
cd /opt
tar xf /home/miner/AMD-APP-SDK-v2.8-lnx64.tgz
cd /opt/
./Install-AMD-APP.sh
ldconfig
reboot

The exact line that the problems occur are:
Code:
tar xf /home/miner/AMD-APP-SDK-v2.8-lnx64.tgz
When i type that line in terminal i get this error:
"Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now"


I have downloaded the APP SDK v2.8 Inx64.tgz and have tried both letting the .tgz be located where it is placed after downloading and it also tried to make a folder named miner in the home location ( /home/miner/ )
I get the same error with both methods, so i would need some help from someone familiar with Linux (Ubuntu 12-04 > XUbuntu).


Would really appreciate if someone could help me out!
Cheers!

What is your username on the Linux machine. You should change "miner" to your login in this line: tar xf /home/miner/AMD-APP-SDK-v2.8-lnx64.tgz in case your name is not "miner".

Thanks for the post!

Did try this line:
tar xf /home/RHWN/AMD-APP-SDK-v2.8-lnx64.tgz
Unfortunately i still end up getting the same error as i did with .../miner/...

Should i let the .tgz be where its located in downloads or should i move it somewhere special?

Appreciate the post!

Didnt even notice that you made it! Creds to you for taking the time to post that guide!

Now i have unfortanly followed the stolen guide and have xubuntu on the machine.
I guess i will just need to secure erase the ssd and restart over and make a bootable usb with the right OS!

Thanks!

As I said in another thread about this a minute ago the problem I ran into with Ubuntu (and debian and mint) is that they didn't support my multi-gpu cards and so I couldn't even get through the install.  I've found Centos to be a solid choice for mining multi-multi-gpu cards.

Yeah i read that, downloading CentOS 6.0 iso atm.
The setup ill try this on is a 6950 x2 and a 6870. If it works i might change the os on the main rig (580x3 & 6870).
