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!

That command needs to be adapted for your specific scenario. Find the path where you downloaded the file to. For me, it was "/home/crazyates/Downloads/AMD-APP-SDK-v2.8-lnx64.tgz"

Oh ofc!

Heres the line i think is right for me:
Code:
tar xf /home/RHWN/Downloads/AMD-APP-SDK-v2.8-lnx64.tgz
But i still get that error, also had a look inside the Download folder and yepp! There it was!

Dont really know what to do.

Can you "cd /home/RHWN/Downloads" and run "ls" and see the file? Remember that you need to type your commands case-sensitive.

I wrote exit until the terminal closed down, then i tried cd /home/RHWN/downloads but i then get the same msg:
"No such file or directory"

Do i only type in ls after the code? Sorry for my inexperience  Embarrassed

Do i need to write something like sudo -s or cd /opt b4 the cd /home.../downloads ?

You need to use the command this way:

tar -xf /the/full/link/to/your/file.tgz

Make sure you have the correct file location, and make sure you have a dash in front of xf and it should work!
