Use 11.04 and not 11.10 if you are mining with more than 1 gpu.

You can read the guide by Inaba but ignore the pyopencl stuff as it isn't needed for cgminer.  Just get the 11.06 driver and 2.4 SDK as described in the cgminer github README.

You are missing the *.h files in the ADL_SDK directory. Read the readme.txt located there to get the files.

Assuming $AMDAPPSDKROOT is defined, then the proper configure command should be similar to:
Code:
CFLAGS="-O3 -Wall -I$AMDAPPSDKROOT/include" LDFLAGS="-L${AMDAPPSDKROOT}lib/x86_64" ./configure
If you are using BitForce.FPGAs then:
Code:
CFLAGS="-O3 -Wall -I$AMDAPPSDKROOT/include" LDFLAGS="-L${AMDAPPSDKROOT}lib/x86_64" ./configure --enable-bitforce
See how these changes work for you. If using 32-bit, change to above paths to reflect 32-bit libs.

You could just use the pre-built binaries on the fist page of cgminer thread......

I have no idea. It simple does not work with Ubuntu 11.10.

I have the following setup which works PERFECTLY (for 10 mining rigs):

- Ubuntu 11.04 64 bits
- Catalyst 11.6
- SDK v2.4
- CGMiner 2.2.4 - binary distribution


If I try with this:

- Ubuntu 11.10 64 bits
- Catalyst 11.12
- CGMiner 2.2.4 - binary distribution

... it doesn't work at all.

I have a lots of problems with new setup, as follows:

1- CGMiner consumes +100% of CPU while mining at GPUs;
2- I need to use "GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1" as a workaround to the 100% CPU bug;
3- My mining rig with two 5970 doesn't work, even using GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1;
4- My mining rig with two 5870 doesn't work, even using GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1;

 Using the option GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1 make the system usable only when 1 5870 or 1 5850 is on board... It is useless for the rest...

 I already try to compile Catalyst 11.6 @ Ubuntu 11.10 but the ATI/AMD kernel module does not compile under Linux 3.0.

Cheers!
Thiago

- CGMiner 2.2.4 - binary distribution

SDK version?

With new Catalyst 11.12, there is no need to SDK, because it is already there...

You can check this by running:

Code:
ldd ~/cgminer-2.2.4-x86_64-built/cgminer

All CGMiner dependencies was satisfied without installing any SDK, so, it is "works"...

Best,
Thiago

1.  CGMiner will do this if your intensity is cranked also.
2.  What's wrong with using GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1?
3.  I don't know what you're saying.  You mean CPU usage is high regardless?  If so, lower your intensity.

I didn't notice that you were trying to compile an old driver with Linux 3.0...  Haven't tried this.

in 11.12 catalyst is the 2.6 sdk, change it to 2.5 or lower and it should work fine.

- SDK v2.4
- CGMiner 2.2.4 - compiled

How you install Catalyst 11.6 in your Ubuntu 11.10?!

Here, I'm unable to compile the kernel module, the command option "--buildpkg Ubuntu/oneiric" of it does not complete.

I mean, the deb package can be built but, the fglrx does not install...

I'll try it and report the error log here soon...
