Hello everyone. I've decided to jump head first into the boiling pot and got stuck at a rather inconvenient location.

I've tried building the miner now about a dozen different ways, no dice. The endresult is always this, if I get it to configure and compile at all that is:
Code:
# ./cgminer --benchmark
 [2013-05-11 08:37:38] Started cgminer 3.1.0Segmentation fault (core dumped)
#

I read in the official thread about adding a stacktrace with gdb cgminer core and here it is:

Code:
# gdb cgminer core

Any idea anyone how to fix this? I have a few GPU's laying around just idleing Smiley

I went a bit further and tried installing the latest drivers.

Removed the drivers I had in before with this:
aptitude purge fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle-updates fglrx-updates-dev

Got the drivers here:
http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/amd-catalyst-13.4-linux-x86.x86_64.zip

It complained about not having X so I installed it with this:
aptitude install x11-common xserver-xorg-core

Installed it, and then rebooted.

Configure fails with this:
OpenCL...............: NOT FOUND. GPU mining support DISABLED

aticonfig fails with this:
# aticonfig -lsa
aticonfig: error while loading shared libraries: libXrandr.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Fixed it with aptitude install libxrandr2. Output now is:

# aticonfig --lsa
* 0. 01:00.0 AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series

* - Default adapter

configure still fails...

So it works, sort of, still needs a bit of testing, but here is how I got it to do as it should in the end:

  • Installed the ati driver again.
  • Killed the cgminer dir and redid that from scratch.
  • Copied ADL files to cgminer.
  • Copied the files from the APP sdk to the /usr/include and /usr/lib as the GPU-README of cgminer says, and of course run ldconfig
  • rebooted
  • ran configure on the cgminer, then make, both went through without a hitch
  • Now it works...

I will retry at a later stage to see if I can reproduce the success.

Hi Christian,

Could you eventually reproduce this error and do you have a resolution for this? I experience the same message with OpenSuSE 12.2 and CGminer 3.1.0.

aticonfig --lsa recognizes my two graphi9cs cards OK, configure and make install do also work flawlessly.

Thanks

Hi

I made mistakes that far back that resulted in a rather ugly binary. I have since refined the process and can reproduce a stable version with working ADL in it on 3 different machines. I'm working on a tutorial for that as of now Smiley

Any reason that you're trying to build your own binary vs just downloading the precompiled linux build from the author?

I have a pretty thorough linux guide here (part 2), if it helps:

http://www.cryptobadger.com/build-your-own-litecoin-mining-rig/

Although I don't compile cgminer from source in my guide; I just use ckolivas's build.

I've used this but I get Segmentation fault when I try to run cgminer.  This has been a problem with absolutely every guide I've used.
