What version of linux are you running first of all?

I think most people here are on Ubuntu 10.10.

I would have offered remote assistance, except I am not familiar with linux Sad I could read up and help you another time maybe.

For pooling, you gotta sign up at the pool's website

PCLinuxOS no ver number it is a rolling distro

I've never even heard of that one in all my time with Linux, but there are a lot of different distributions.

It looks like it's debian based like Ubuntu.

If you are familiar with the synaptic management tool try searching for python-pyopencl.

Here are instructions for ubuntu. http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2636.0
If PCLinuxOS is debian based, using current packages, and hasn't changed the package names, those instructions could work.

Be aware that your card is quite old. I had a GTS 250 and was only getting about 2.5 Cents a day running at 30 Mh/s. It looks like your card will get in the 20-25 Mh/s range.

Not debian it uses RPMs but it does use synaptec

It looks like this is the package you're looking for:

nvidia-current-cuda-opencl

Ok the ubuntu instructions say to

Quote
sudo apt-get install python-pyopencl subversion
wget http://iweb.dl.sourceforge.net/project/bitcoin/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.3.19/bitcoin-0.3.19-linux.tar.gz
tar xvf bitcoin-0.3.19-linux.tar.gz
svn checkout http://svn.json-rpc.org/trunk/python-jsonrpc
cd python-jsonrpc/
sudo python setup.py install
cd ..
mkdir .bitcoin
echo "rpcuser=un" > .bitcoin/bitcoin.conf
echo "rpcpassword=pw" >> .bitcoin/bitcoin.conf
wget --no-check-certificate https://github.com/m0mchil/poclbm/raw/master/BitcoinMiner.cl
wget --no-check-certificate https://github.com/m0mchil/poclbm/raw/master/BitcoinMiner.py
wget --no-check-certificate https://github.com/m0mchil/poclbm/raw/master/poclbm.py
~/bitcoin-0.3.19/bin/64/bitcoin -server&
python poclbm.py -d 0 --user un --pass pw


but I have already DL and extracted bitcoin-0.3.19-linux.tar.gz so why do Ineed to do it agin, actually did 3.20 but who is counting

I have a setup .py folder but as i said befor it is in the poclbm-mod.03.24.2011/sources/ folder

and it looks like this code it to make a .bitcoin folder I already have on in my home folder why do I want another? and as I said and asked before have no "bitcoin.conf" so do I need to create one with kwrite and if so what do i put in it?

myusername=un
mypassword=pw

or

rpcuser=myusername
rpcpassword=mypassword

the wged lines seem to be to Dl what I already have so why would I re DL what is already on my drive?

python poclbm.py -d 0 --user un --pass pw

confuses me because if I am putting in the user in pass why do I need to create the .config file. This is the user and pass for the pool account right?

when I  try to run "sudo python setup.py install"
it asks me for a password, I put in the pass for my user account. Then it says:

myusername is not in the sudoers file.  This incident will be reported.

Should I take the "sudo" off? or do I need to run this a root? I am sure I am doing something simple wrong  but no clue what?

python poclbm.py -d 0 --user un --pass pw

Forget these instructions. They were only relevant when I thought your system was debian based instead of .rpm. They are for setting up a system to mine by yourself which you don't want to do. You want to join a pool with your card.

but I have already DL and extracted bitcoin-0.3.19-linux.tar.gz so why do Ineed to do it agin, actually did 3.20 but who is counting

You need to run the bitcoin program somewhere, either on this machine or another one to be joined to the network to be able to receive any bitcoins that you make from a pool. You should delete the .bitcoin/bitcoin.conf file

First things first.

cd  to the poclbm-mod.03.24.2011/sources/
do python ./poclbm-mod with no options

what devices does it show?

You don't need to create a config file for your bitcoin client if you are going to do mining in pool.
