I'm running an ubuntu 10.04 server with xfce.

The server has an athlon 140, 2gb ram, and 2x5830's. I have them both overclocked to about 950mhz core. I tried to underclock the memory but everytime i do so it locks the machine up.

I have this same exact hardware also running under windows xp sp3 and I get the same results. ANY modification to the memory clock speed on either GPU and it locks the machine up...

Any ideas?

Thanks.

It's very easy to over/underclock both core and memory in Linux. Use atitweak. Example:
atitweak -A 0 -f 100 -e 900 -m 300
will set for adapter #0: fan to 100%, core to 900 and memory to 300.

Code:
atitweak -h
Usage: atitweak [options]

Options:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -l, --list-adapters   Lists all detected and supported display adapters.
  -s, --status          Shows current clock speeds, core voltage, utilization
                        and performance level.
  -e ENGINE_CLOCK, --set-engine-clock=ENGINE_CLOCK
                        Sets engine clock speed (in MHz) for the selected
                        performance levels on the selected adapters.
  -m MEMORY_CLOCK, --set-memory-clock=MEMORY_CLOCK
                        Sets memory clock speed (in MHz) for the selected
                        peformance levels on the selected adapters.
  -v CORE_VOLTAGE, --set-core-voltage=CORE_VOLTAGE
                        Sets core voltage level (in VDC) for the selected
                        performance levels on the selected adapters.
  -f FAN_SPEED, --set-fan-speed=FAN_SPEED
                        Sets the fan speed (in percent) for the selected
                        adapters.
  -d, --set-fan-speed-default
                        Resets the fan speed to its default setting.
  -A ADAPTERLIST, --adapter=ADAPTERLIST
                        Selects which adapters returned by --list-adapters
                        should be affected by other atitweak options.
                        ADAPTERLIST contains either a comma-seperated sequence
                        of the index numbers of the adapters to be affected or
                        else contains the keyword "all" to select all the
                        adapters. If --adapter is missing, all adapters will
                        be affected.
  -P PERFORMANCELEVELLIST, --performance-level=PERFORMANCELEVELLIST
                        Selects which performance levels returned by --list-
                        adapters should be affected by other atitweak options.
                        PERFORMANCELEVELLIST contains either a comma-separated
                        sequence of the index numbers of the performance
                        levels to be affected or else contains the keyword
                        "all" to select all performance levels. If
                        --performance-level is missing, all performance levels
                        will be affected.

Have you tried older/newer driver versions, especially on Windows? Also make sure you don't have some weird BIOS preventing OC.

where do i get atitweak?

thanks

Does the AMDOverdriveCtrl in linux let you overclock your card? If so how?  I tried it from the GUI and it can only let me set clock the the maximum of my default clock ... strange. However i have read in other threads that ppl have been using it to overclock their cards. Any clues?


FYI, its 5850 black edition with default clock at 775/1125

Read the thread I linked to, it doesn't and that's why the author of atitweak decided to write his own.

I was able to overclock the core with overdrive but underclocking would lock the machine up.

I'll give atitweak a try. Thanks guys.

But according to this thread : http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?PHPSESSID=24170fa90fad3338d4b40a9c5143c1d1&topic=29021.0

Which i have been following, the AMDOverdriveCtrl should let me overclock my card.

I read the atitweak thread, and it seems ppl complaining about over-volting,

How do i find which driver version i'm using? I'm running linuxcoin 0.2b-final

I decided to try atitweak, and boy it was much simpler, cleaner as well

So i finally can overclock my card.

However, i just try phoenix miner with phatk kernel on linuxcoin for the first time and i got this msg/warning right after executing the command

Code:
[29/07/2011 07:54:50] Phoenix r111 starting...
[29/07/2011 07:54:50] Connected to server

  self.commandQueue, self.output_buf, self.output)

  self.commandQueue, self.output_buf, self.output)
[29/07/2011 07:54:57] Result: 167a2583 accepted         

Does anyone know what it means?

Sorry can't help you there. It appears there's something wrong with the version of phatk you use (did you install diapolo's version without updating __init__.py as well?)

That's probably a question to ask in the Linuxcoin thread.

Alternatively you could give BAMT a try, been using it with great success for a week now. http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=28967.0

Thanks for your help

I still cant post in regular section Sad ... newbie restriction

Also i'm having problem booting Linuxcoin with 4 x 5850. As mentioned above, i successfully ran Linuxcoin with a single 5850 (mining and everything seems to work fine)

But i cant boot into Desktop with 4 x 5850. It hang after the splash screen, seems like X-server got stuck during the initiation.

I can boot fine with 4 x 5850 to Windows 7, so i know its not the hardware.

I really want to post in Linuxcoin thread, when can i pass the newbie restriction?

I installed amd drivers from ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates and aticonfig never lets me go outside the configurable range, but afterwards, I manually install amd drivers from their site and the new aticonfig command lets me set it to whatever I want.
