This guide is for the 64 Bit version of Ubuntu. You really shouldn't be running the 32 bit version anymore. It's time to move on.
Install Ubuntu Natty Narwhal v11.04 x64 or Oneiric Ocelot v11.10 x64. Select defaults for most everything. The default Oneiric install has some wonky default partition mapping. It's fine for a hard drive, but if you are installing on a USB stick that is less than 8GB, you may want to reconfigure the partition mapping. Even an 8 GB stick is going to be severely pressed for space on root. A 16 GB or bigger stick will be just fine.
**** WARNING ****
If you are using more than 1 GPU for mining, do NOT use Oneiric Ocelot v11.10. There are some major bugs in the drivers in OO that make using multiple GPUs an exercise in frutration. Use Natty Narwhal for multi-GPU setups.
**** WARNING ****Perform each step in order, following the directions. At the end, you'll have a working version of poclbm and phoenix miner.
That's it, you're done.

You should now have a fully functional Ubuntu 11.04 mining rig with Phoenix and poclbm installed. To test it out, you can go into the poclbm directory and run poclbm without any switches and see if your graphics card(s) show up. Do this with:cd poclbm
It should list your CPU (possibly) and your graphics cores available.
Here's a couple useful tricks for working with your graphics cards:
To display the temperature of your cores:aticonfig --odgt --adapter=all
To display the clock speeds of your cores:aticonfig --odgc --adapter=all
To show or set your fan speed:
Shows fan speedaticonfig --pplib-cmd "get fanspeed 0"
Sets fan speed to 100%aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 100"
If you have multiple cores, you'll need to export a different display variable to access the different cores, like this:
Show fan speed on 2nd card: export DISPLAY=:0.1; aticonfig --pplib-cmd "get fanspeed 0"
You can change the .1 to .2, .3 etc... for how many cards you have in the system.
To change your clock rates:
Set your core clock to 900MHz and your memory clock to 1000MHz on all cards. Change according to your desire.aticonfig --od-setclocks=900,1000 --adapter=all
To set for a particular card, change --adapter=all to the adapter number you want to change.
That should take care of just about everything you need to do to mine in a Bitcoin pool.Like this guide and find it useful? Donate! Donation address: 168Bgg6HL6bLiUxQDBbdmHRbXtSsMixYCT
