Got +10 MH/s on 5850 by increasing the worksize from 128 to 256 @ 2 vectors, keeping the RAM @ 300, because @ 200 = -10 MH/s. Thanks for the update! cgminer is better than ever...

Cgminers binaries compiled for Ubuntu 64 bit with adl work (temp/fan/freq monitoring/setting works). Your ebuild depends on another that isn't provided in the bitcoin overlay nor the Portage tree.
That's an effect of using a from-source distro: you need build dependencies.
Would you please stop patronizing and start helping ? Your initial post :
NEW VERSION: 2.0.4
Now available for Gentoo through Portage (or any other ebuild package manager):
Code:
layman -a bitcoin && emerge cgminer

Please test and report results! Smiley
So I tested and reported Smiley My report seemed clear : Portage mentioned an unsatisfied dependency. As your post simply mentioned the bitcoin overlay, it seems the dependency is wrong, can't be fullfilled or the ebuild it depends on is in another overlay (should I really explain this to someone writing an ebuild ?). Would you be kind enough to choose one of these 3 possible reasons (or whatever 4th you may find more suitable) and help from here (is it my task to write the missing ebuild, is there another overlay you forgot to mention, ...).

If you need ADL support, you'll probably have to write the missing ebuild-- I don't know of any yet. ADL support is controlled by the 'adl' USE flag and should be disabled by default-- ie, you shouldn't be getting this error with a simple 'emerge cgminer'

Ok, that explains it. As you probably guessed, I added the USE flag to my configuration as there was no warning it would break anything. Thanks for your effort, but I reverted to the ckolivas Ubuntu built packages as it's still more convenient for me.

No one can provide the ADL support except ATI/AMD.
(and I'm certain they won't have what you are looking for - only the download SDKs)
Any source build linux thus cannot provide the whole of cgminer.
You must (by the terms of their license) get the ADL/SDK code from them and manually install it.

Thankfully, I don't need a license to write an ebuild.

That's not a problem for Gentoo. It supports software like that by allowing the users to download the original package themselves (you put the file in /usr/portage/distfiles by default before installing) and can ask the user to agree to a license if it's mandatory. The rest of the process (actual install, lib and config maintenance, keeping track of files installed, ... is still done by the package manager).

Yes thanks that's what I meant Smiley
You will have to actually get them yourself from AMD you can't have them provided by any other source.

Added a simple ebuild for dev-util/amd-adl-sdk to the bitcoin overlay. Please test. (no manual downloading required)

Works for me.

For kano: Luke-Jr forbid mirroring in the ebuild, that's a way to abide by the "always download from AMD" as long as the license doesn't require the user to download manually. This way Gentoo doesn't host the file on its mirrors and Gentoo users don't try to download the file from them. So the install was fully automated for me.

this miner made me happy for a short time, it uses little or no cpu xD

it might even give me a few more MHAshes

What bothers me, at least on my main (desktop) rig, is that i have 2 cards:

hd5800
hd4650

I must keep BOTH because my main display is a 27 inches DELL rocking 2560x1440 pixels, and for SOME reason (and i tested 3 different 5800, both with dual link DVI and mini displayport cables), if i also connect my secondary display (20 inches Dell display), i get weird lines on the 27 inches one while playing, and the screen even goes black from time to time, randomly.

Having one display on each card causes no issues (both displays on the 4650 have the same problems).

All this problems happen more often while gaming.

------------

Now, to my issue with this great miner:

even if i set -d 0, it seems the app decides to try to use/overclock/control the fans of my 4650 ( i want its fans to remain on AUTOmatic, and its clocks untouched, its just there to power my secondary display, not gaiming, not mining).

If i set its fan to a fixed speed, my PC BSODS Sad

Windows 7
catalyst 11.9 RC (with corresponding SDK, produced no CPU use or very little with other miners, but i had to put the 4650 back on my pc for the issues i had while gaming)

I tried the following:

Code:
E:\SoftWare\BitCoin\Miners\cgminer-2.0.4-win32\cgminer.exe -o http://pit.deepbit.net:8332 -u rcocchiararo@gmail.com_z16 -p 12345 -d 0 --gpu-fan 70 --gpu-engine 975 --gpu-memclock 300

That seemed to work fine (those are the same settings i use with other miners, my 5830 runs @50 to 52 c).

It did crash my pc once when i closed cgmine's window (i started using Q to quit from there on).

Then i decided to try to take advantage of the auto fan modes, and i went with:

Code:
E:\SoftWare\BitCoin\Miners\cgminer-2.0.4-win32\cgminer.exe -o http://pit.deepbit.net:8332 -u rcocchiararo@gmail.com_z16 -p 12345 -d 0 --gpu-engine 975 --gpu-memclock 300 --gpu-fan 20-70,20-50 --temp-target 55,40 --temp-overheat 65

I specified the fan speeds manually, even for the 4650 because if i did not, its fans would go to 100% (or 85% maybe).

Another thing i noticed was that my 5830 would use its fans always on the upper limit (i originally set it from 20 to 75 and the noise difference was there).

Using the auto modes, my pc surely crashes really fast.

Yes I haven't put anything explicitly in place separating out management of GPUs from the cards only being mined on. I have to fix that.

Quite a number of people have suggested to me adding a donation option to cgminer as an opt-out feature. This would redirect a nominal amount of shares, say 0.5% to myself, which could be disabled on the command line. I've been resisting taking such an approach, but how do other people feel about that? It would certainly make me happier to keep supporting this project.

I think it's a good idea it's easier for you to receive revenue you can count out the major miners however you should do a pole and see what number will maximize your revenue.  Also include in the pole the donation amount of zero so you can count those people out.

I asked a few posts ago if you could change something in your code, I'm not asking you to agree just an answer and your opinion if you don't mind giving it.

I got lost in the angry discussions following it. Was it the IP address issues, the working with a proxy server, the requiring built-in support for merged mining, the mining on multiple block chains, your one pool that doesn't like cgminer, or something else? In summary I'm not abject to fixing issues, but I don't work around unique pool designs and will never support multiple different block chains (that's not the same as merged mining, I know). That leaves the others up to discussion.
