2.6.3 -> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=28402.msg1079367#msg1079367
An Xubuntu 11.04 64bit executable in my github downloads called cgminer-2.6.3a
https://github.com/kanoi/cgminer/downloads

For anyone who didn't realise, it's just the executable file to put in place of 'cgminer'
Nothing else needs changing
First get and extract the full binary release from ckolivas and then copy my file in place of 'cgminer'

No Problems so far on my GPU, BFL or 2xIcarus

The same configure options as cvolivas' binary version
In case anyone was wondering:
CFLAGS="-O2 -W -Wall" ./configure --enable-icarus --enable-bitforce --enable-ztex --enable-modminer --enable-scrypt

I have also added a WinXP cgminer-2.6.3a.exe

This ONLY has BFL + ICA (as below) thus it doesn't need a computer with OpenCL on it
CFLAGS="-O2 -W -Wall" ./configure --enable-icarus --enable-bitforce

You will most likely also need the windowsdlls.zip file there in my downloads since my *.dll might be slightly different to ckolivas

You should mention, that your executable file is compiled in x64_86 enviroment as  ywell.
Took me me somme time to figure, why this is not working on my x86 xubuntu :/
2.6.1 was sucking a lot with my bfl`s anyways.
I`ll give it a try with bfl now.

i`m working on 2.4.3 now - is there a lot of improvements since than (bfl & ztex) ?? answer YES/NO would be nice Cheesy

It doesn't apply my overclock settings and gives me this message on startup, wondering how I would code to fix it if possible:

"ADL found less devices than opencl!
There is possibly more than one display attached to a GPU
Use the gpu map featured to reliably map OpenCL to ADL"
Hardware monitoring may NOT match up with devices!

what OS are you using? if linux, before running cgminer enter:

Code:
$ export DISPLAY=:0

Doesn't show temperature of my cards which is a real problem and makes me have to rely on other overclock software

Have you installed the ADL SDK from AMD? did you copy the appropriate header files into the cgminer ADL directory before compiling?

1 rig with 4 phatk kernel have 9-12% DW (before update 5-10%) with int 8, 2 rig witk 3 diablo 1 poclbm kernels have 30-35% DW (before updade 5-10%) with int 9.

That's the cost of much smoother getwork behaviour. On the flip side, it will have less chance of dips in the hashrate, leak shares to backup pools, have bursts of work requirements and so on.

hm, And if I only use a single pool? Version 2.6.2 would be best for me, or for who use one pool?
Or is it just a side effect, and the end result is the same as the shares was on the previous version. Only DW is too much, because the new methods of work requests?

It will still have smoother comms with the pool even on a single pool.

ztex itself? - no, nelisky hasn't touched the code in ages - he seems to have no time for bitcoin for a long time now

There are lots of changes regarding getting work from the pool, and lots of changes with adding scrypt
The NEWS file mentions all changes for each version.

BFL has been getting a few bug fixes thus there have been BFL bugs during 2.4.3->2.6.3

... I keep updating miner.php ... and API specific changes are documented in API-README

With my binaries you need to install opencl, usually from AMD, although the NVIDIA or even the Intel one will suffice. This has ALWAYS been the case.

http://developer.amd.com/sdks/AMDAPPSDK/downloads/Pages/default.aspx
So I tried to get the 2.5 SDK installed alongside 12.1 (yet again) and I get nothing but segfaults. Seriously, how do you get both of them installed?

Perhaps then you have a few files from different SDKs installed. That's usually how segfaults occur. You'll have to go through and do a cleanup. The newer AMD drivers automatically install the SDK themselves.

I know, that's why I'm having the problem. But how do you get the driver to install without the SDK or at least remove the SDK that it installs? Gah, now I gotta remember how I cleaned up all these files last time...

I am getting a lot of "This program has stopped working and will be shutdown" with 2.6.3.  Running windows X32 7 on 13 different miner rigs with 5970, 7970, and some BFL singles.  Both the 7970 rigs and 5970 rigs are getting the error, I have reverted back to 2.6.2, and haven't had issues.  Just thought I'd share.

You will most likely also need the windowsdlls.zip file there in my downloads since my *.dll might be slightly different to ckolivas

any news on Zefir's patch (test found shares and incremente HW: even for FPGAs if they're not ok)?

No, I haven't done it yet.
Zefir's patch obviously isn't how it should be handled properly, but it's OK to use for yourself since it doesn't cause any problems.

As I pointed out in the other thread, I thought it was internally done automatically, but since it isn't, the relevant solution seems to be to add a device api interface for it.

Since that will affect all devices, I'm leaving it until 2.6.x is out of flux due to the BFL issues.
(I not a git guru and usually end up having to redo things when the code is changing - so I avoid it)
I'll post a message in the other thread when it's done.

Basically, yes, when changed it will report HW: errors (which it doesn't at the moment - they just get a message "Share below target")

Wait wait wait...what is that?

previously always told to get driver 12.X and SDK 2.X, then told get newest driver 12.6 and use it's built in SDK, is this SDK or something more?

Whatever would be able to let radeon's be detected by software fully when no display is plugged into then, as this should increase slightly the Mhash

Right now I have my main display hooked to onboard and extended the desktop with black background to one off the radeon, otherwise CGMINER doesn't see it properly gives those errors and can't auto fan tune and even MSI afterburner doesn't work
