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!

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"

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 ?

...
tar xf /home/miner/AMD-APP-SDK-v2.8-lnx64.tgz

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!

(or just follow the thread in my signature that the code you are using was copied from).
