I have been lurking for a number of weeks and decided to purchase a mining rig. Now I know just enough to get me in trouble. I wanted to get this machine up before I leave for 2 weeks, and it's not looking good. I hate wasting money either way.
My machine is AMDII so I have downloaded 64 bit versions
Ubuntu 11.04 is installed
Catalyst 11.5 installed
I am following the Ubuntu Natty Narwhal Guide found here:http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=7514.0
During install I got this error message:
PowerXpress error: Cannot stat '/usr/lib64/fglrx/switchlibGL': No such file or directory
Failed to initialize libglx for discrete GPU
Saving back-up to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.original-0
There was also a broken link in the instructions and I'm not sure if the file ended up in the proper directory.
So I downloaded https://eclipsemc.com/files/python-jsonrpc.tar.gz
and extracted it into my user directory where the Phoenix, pyopencl-0.92 and poclbm folders reside. Is this correct?
Running the launch commands I get:
No device specified or device not found, use -d to specify one of the following
- Cayman Cayman
 AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 450 Processor
and when I type:
Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/home/user/poclbm/BitcoinMiner.py", line 32, in __init__
