i have the same adapter not found errors with 0.21b, the older a version worked fine.

Works only on 1 machine, couple others does not work.

Also on top of that, if i do not have monitor plugged in while booting, when i plug it in it complains "Video mode not supported", meaning it's running resolution beyond the tiny old Dell LCD i'm using.

So i'm mostly running the older version as the newer version does not work at all for me.
Trying the above mentioned -> http://developer.amd.com/sdks/amdappsdk/assets/ati_stream_sdk_installation_notes.pdf section 2.2

EDIT: Typing all kinds of special characters on US keymap wasn't my idea of fun, it's just easier to use old version or roll my own in the next upcoming weeks than fool around with something obviously broken.

Why are you plugging in a monitor after booting ? http://developer.amd.com/sdks/amdappsdk/assets/ati_stream_sdk_installation_notes.pdf section 2.2 refers to you accepting the license agreement. You can do this manually or click the handy little icon in system called ATI license agreement. Also how is something broken because you have to change the keymap to suit your liking ? Sorry but bad workman blames his tools springs to mind Cheesy

I did accept the SDK -.- I tried from terminal, and from system, and as a regular user etc.
and keymap has nothing to do with being broken. Being broken has everything to do with the drivers not working anymore. There are also other minor bugs and glitches which are annoyances.

Also a bad workman is someone who does not recognize when tools are broken, or does not recognize when a better one is required.

Plugging monitor after booting -> when you boot up say 5 machines from cold, are YOU going to wait for one to boot up individually, or power up all at the sametime?
Or if you meant "why would you need monitor after booting up", maybe starting the miner and verifying clocks. Didn't intend to just idle those machines.

aticonfig can see the adapters, but not phoenix, or amdoverdrivectrl etc. complains lack of ATI drivers. i used aticonfig initialize, but that is to no avail -> restarting X causes only a black screen, won't come back.

I would call that broken, when out of box advertised features do not work, not even after sensible amount of research & trying, whereas a older tool works as expected Smiley

Btw, Ad hominem is an argumentation mistake, quite an serious one.

I'm not starting an argument just pointing out that you didn't post anything about your hardware or what you are doing you just picked things out and posted complaining about them. How am I meant to make linuxcoin better if everyone just posted "it don't work" ?

You screen won't work after you boot because the configuration is generated on the fly but can be set in the xorg configuration file. If you was a competent linux user you would know this and edit your configuration files accordingly.  But no you come here to say it don't work without asking anyone about the issues you was having. I reiterate a bad workman always blames his tools.

If you have a question or a problem with linuxcoin then ask away there are lots of helpful people here that give up their time for free to help people out. What I'm not interested in is people posting rants on this thread moaning about broken machines and not posting anything useful

This isn't a linuxcoin issue it's just how the drivers work. why can't you just VNC into the machines ?.

What GPU's are you using that doesn't work ? There is a bug with how the configuration file is generated. This is fixed in the final version. If this is affecting you and your persistent you can copy and paste the following into /etc/init.d/fglrx

Code:
#! /bin/sh
# /etc/init.d/fglrx
#
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          fglrx
# Required-Start:      $all
# Required-Stop:       $all
# Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop:      0 1 6
# Short-Description: Start/stop fglrx
# Description:       Start/stop fglrx
### END INIT INFO

case "$1" in
  start)
    echo "Configuring fglrx."
    if [ -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf ]; then
        echo "Configuration found !! Skipping."
    else
        aticonfig --initial -f --adapter=all # Configure GPGPU
    fi
    ;;
  stop)
    echo "Cleaning up fglrx configuration"
#   not used in this version !!
    ;;
  *)
    echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/fglrx {start|stop}"
    exit 1
    ;;
esac

exit 0

and reboot. If anyone is having problems with linuxcoin don't just post it don't work. Post as much information about your system as possible and any error messages. sorry if i'm blunt you've caught me on a bad day Wink



Now you are trying to just annoy me.
"If you was a competent linux user you would know this and edit your configuration files accordingly.". I do admit i don't use it on desktop - because it sucks as desktop if you need to get work done, but that is quite an insult. I probably have 100x the experience you do (I do happen to manage hundreds of servers).

Systems in question which i've tried:

ASUS P5LD2SE Mobo
Celeron 2.66Ghz CPU
1Gb DDR2 667
PowerColor HD5830
Kingston USB Stick for boot

Another System:
ABIT IN9 mobo (their flagship before they went bust)
Core2Duo X6800 (yes, extreme series a bit overkill for this)
4x1Gb DDR2 667
2xClub3D HD5870
Kingston USB Stick for boot


One did work, but i can't recall the specs of the machine anymore. Very similar to those tho.

Catalyst etc. complains lack of drivers.

aticonfig init makes new xorg.conf, but then X won't start up.

Persistence does not seem work, used unetbooting to create the sticks, and specified ~1Gb for persistence. Hasn't mattered tho so far that much i've been arsed to look into it.

This isn't a linuxcoin issue it's just how the drivers work.
It is VERY much Linuxcoin issue, if newer Linuxcoin does not work but older does. Simple as that, doesn't require a genius to understand.

why can't you just VNC into the machines ?.
So linuxcoin has VNC setup out of the box? Tbh, i did not bother to take a look if it were, i did not see NX or VNC references in any obvious places.

now am I meant to make linuxcoin better if everyone just posted "it don't work" ?
I did reference earlier discussion about this very same problem, on the previous page someone else was having similar problems.

What I'm not interested in is people posting rants on this thread moaning about broken machines and not posting anything useful
Those machines work perfectly, ty for asking. It's linuxcoin which does not.

I reiterate a bad workman always blames his tools.
So it's my fault that LinuxCoin has bugs? Smiley What does it say about developer who always blames users "it can't be a bug! i created it so it's bug free, it's your fault for not putting effort work around the 'features'!"

Lol you annoyed me of as soon as you opened you mouth ! Hmm so you you manage all these servers but didn't think to post you xorg.conf file ? And please tell me more about this desktop you talk about that sucks so much ? You mean you run headless ? If you manage all these servers you should know that there's no need for a screen unless you want to connect your machines wireless and need to enter a key before you can get an IP address. You should check out the following link.

http://www.linuxcoin.co.uk/wiki/index.php/SSH_X11forwarding

As I said the bug is NOT with the drivers but WITH the initialization script.  My fault ? yes, someone with hundreds of linux servers under his control failed to notice ? I feel sorry for your boss Cheesy I bet if you check now you will see that your actually running on the free radeon drivers. If you want to check

Code:
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep fglrx

If you see anything return then you have the fglrx drivers loaded. If not your running on the free radeon driver and in that case you need to do.

Code:
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
sudo aticonfig --initial -f --adapter=all
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop

When you see the terminal

Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start

everything should work as expected.

If you actually RTFM for unetbootin you will see that it specifies that the persistence option is ONLY for ubuntu. Not a linuxcoin issue and someone as competent as you should already know this lol The reason why is ubuntu looks for partitions called casper-rw. Linuxcoin looks for live-rw. If you want persistence go over to linuxcoin and download a persistence file like specified in the OP. if not a systems engineer with hundreds of servers under your control like yourself should be able to manage.

Code:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/path/to/usb/live-rw bs=1M count=<your_size>
mkfs.ext4 /path/to/usb/live-rw

And reboot.

You screen issues can be fixed by hitting CTRL + ALT + F1 and editing your xorg.conf to reflect your monitor  or use xrandr. If you manage to get the fglrx drivers to auto detect on the fly then I would like to know about it as I'm sure lots of others will.

Code:
xrandr --auto

Expecting a ALPHA build to be bug free is insane Cheesy The bug with the initialization has been fixed and you have been offered a solution. And as for your comments on you couldn't be arsed to do this and that lol A bad workman always blames his tools. The heart of your problems are in you posts. Comments like
Quote
did not bother to take a look if it were
and
Quote
tho so far that much i've been arsed to look into it
show's you do not research your issues and just assume it doesn't work. So I suggest you roll you own with your overwhelming wealth of knowledge and release it to the public lol I will look forward to trying it out.

Optimizations complete Cheesy 452 MH/s on my 5870 cards 320MH/s on my 5830. Also further tweaks have allowed me to push my cards to higher clock levels and so far its been very stable. Only a couple of things left to do and we should be ready for release !! Cheesy

how soon till next release?

what is the overclock on your 5830 to achieve 320mh/s?

very impressive

It's due for release over the next few days but as soon as I think I'm ready something else pops up Sad Most things are complete now just looking into quickly hacking up a small installer. 5830 was clocked at 1000/300.

Ug, I keep waiting on making the jump to Linux for the release version. Maybe I should just go for the beta and say F--- it.

I appreciate all the hard work you are doing.

Linuxcoin will be even nicer when you switch it over to Slackware.

Will we be able to use the same persistence files in the release version, or will we have to download a new one?

LOL sorry bud I know that i keep pushing the release date forward but it's hard not to because everytime the ISO is built something else hits my radar Cheesy. Plus it looks like I've got competition cough cough bamt hehehe Cheesy Only kidding  Wink

I promise I'll make a big push tonight to finish the installer and get this ISO out the only thing I don't want to is release with bugs again. I might ask a few to test 0.2-final before I release to the public. If you want to test send me a PM with your mining setup and I'll send you a copy.

I have 3 computers running 3 x 6970's at 950/300 for 408 Mhash/s and 2 5870's in my main PC along side a GTX 470 (for gaming only) at 960/300 doing 406-408 Mhash/s (will go higher but the power supply in my main PC is only a 1000 watt, and locks up if I do anything that pulls more power on the GTX 470 [1090t black edition, SSD, 2 HD... etc... gobbles power]).

I have new cases coming tomorrow. I will put 4 x 6970 in 2 of my computers, and 4 x 5870's in the third. Then I will put the remaining 6970 along side my GTX 470 (this has run fine before hashing away and playing games -  this PC will remain windows unless I can figure out if VMware will work for mining? then I could use Linuxcoin on that as well).

Anyway, I probably would not be a good candidate until like Friday to do any testing as I will be in hardware hell for a couple days. Had it been available to test a couple days ago, I would have been a good candidate.

If it is still not released by the time I get done with the hardware I will PM you and try to get some testing done for you.

If you want to test send me a PM with your mining setup and I'll send you a copy.

Sent, even tho the miner is still only a test. I know a few other with similar setups who would like to test also, before major comitments.

Thanks for the interest guys !! Just a quick note on how your wallet is encrypted.

EDIT:

Added loop to test if bitcoin is running. As soon as you close the software linuxcoin cleans up so your wallet is no longer accessible until you open the secure bitcoin client again.
1) LinuxCoin asks for a password and encrypts the password sha1. This should protect against weak passwords Wink
2) LinuxCoin checks if an encrypteed wallet already exits. If so mounts the space, if not creates a encrypted filesystem using dm-crypt and luks and mounts your encrypted space in your home directory.
3) LinuxCoin copies the wallet.dat over to the encrypted space and symlinks it back to your bitcoin folder.
4) Linuxcoin detects when you close the bitcoin software (recommended if you want to be very secure !!) and cleans up after itself.
  
I think that's enough to keep most hackers at bay until you realize your wallet is missing and transfer your coins to a new wallet Cheesy

Here's the script if anyone wants to add it to previous versions.

Code:
#!/bin/bash
# Bitcoin wallet encrypter

I have linuxcoin 02a installed to a usb stick. It worked on every motherboard i tried untill i got my new msi 890fxa-gd65.  it loads till it is suppose to show the gui, but it just stays blank. Any ideas? Using 4x5830 top two pcie slots vacant, using hdmi. Thanks

When you get to the black screen, enter a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 and delete xorg.conf located at /etc/X11/xorg.conf.  Reboot.

So you fancy yourself to be a uber bad ass hax0r ninja ?

Here we have a standard LinuxCoin encrypted wallet. The password is as simple as they come. Inside is some coinage for a reward !! If you can get in you get the coins simplez Wink

LOL sorry bud I know that i keep pushing the release date forward but it's hard not to because everytime the ISO is built something else hits my radar Cheesy. Plus it looks like I've got competition cough cough bamt hehehe Cheesy Only kidding  Wink

No competition at all man, I've probably recommended LinuxCoin to more people who've asked me about bamt than I have bamt itself Smiley
