Need more info. Try installing from aptitude? You might just be missing some dependencies.

Advice for Debian users:

1) the package "fglrx" does not exist. Instead, use "fglrx-driver" and assorted automatic list of packages.
2) Installation of fglrx-driver will uninstall all packages linked to privative nvidia drivers. So, nvidia and ATI-radeon can not coexist, if you want for both the privative libs and drivers. This is a known bug, with no solution (I can't provide links now, but search into bugs.debian.org).

Soon, I'll try the process described in this thread, in a Debian box with an onboard nvidia card (not suitable for mining) on which a HD5570 card will be plugged.

Pray for me...

This guide is great; I've now set up two rigs (one for me, one for a friend) using it.

I've noticed some have been asking about how to get AMDOverdriveCtrl working with this guide; here's what I did, after following every last step in this guide, including the final reboot:

  • Download the appropriate .deb file for your architecture (i386 for 32-bit, amd64 for 64-bit) from their SourceForge page (latest version at this time is 1.2.1): AMDOverdriveCtrl SourceForge Files Page
  • Install using the .deb file; by default the Ubuntu Software Center will open when you double-click the .deb.
  • You can run the software at a terminal by using "AMDOverdriveCtrl -i #", replacing '#' with the index of the GPU you wish to view info on. You can get these by running "AMDOverdriveCtrl -h"; it'll likely show more than one index per GPU. (For my 5830s, I use indexes 0 and 3 to access the first and second card.) You'll need to run one instance of the software per GPU installed.
  • Optionally, I like to setup a few launchers on the Desktop to make it easier to bring the software up. (Right-click on desktop, "Create Launcher...", give it a descriptive name and use "AMDOverdriveCtrl -i #" as the command.) You could also add these commands to the Startup Applications ('System'->'Preferences'->'Startup Applications') to make it even easier.

You can save overclocking settings by using the 'Save default' button on the 'Overdrive' tab, and it'll use those settings every time you start the software. The downside is, it'll use those same settings for every instance of the software, so if, for example, you wanted to set up different clocks for different cards, you'd have to manually load a profile each time you start the software.
The default settings file is pretty easy to edit by hand, should one be so inclined; It is located at '~/.AMDOverdriveCtrl/default.ovdr'.

Hopefully this helps some people. Smiley

Success! I installed the card without problems, and after this, I followed these instructions (with a bit of problems... phoenix does not work) Now I'm mining! Next step: refine the process.

Have all the mining guide corrections and updates mentioned in this thread been used to modify the actual first two posts of this thread? i.e. If I have two 6990's (whcih I do) can I use the second post now and expect that to be the most up to date guide? I actually already used it, and it works, but my rig keeps crashing (blacking out)...fans spin down and apparently mining does too.
I started a thread looking for help on it at: http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=21301.0

I just used this for my new 3rd rig. The poclbm miner looks completely different. Instead of the normal

Date/Time/Hash/Accepted
khash/s

like how it is running on my 2nd linux rig and my windows rig, new one looks like

uswest.btcguild.com:8332 Date/Time/Hash/Accepted
uswest.btcguild.com:8332 khash/s

Inaba did you change anything to the guide? For some strange reason long polling isn't working either, so I'm getting a bunch of shares when the long poll is supposed to happen (comparing time to other rigs)

It's better to be pissed off, than to be pissed on.

What card types are you trying to set.  If you have two 5970's, you can't set 0.1, you have to set 0.1 as 0.1 doesn't have a fan, since it's just the 2nd GPU of the card.

i guess there is something else going here as i can't see temperature for 3rd core as well

Code:
user@miner:~$ aticonfig --odgt --adapter=all

Adapter 0 - ATI Radeon HD 5900 Series
            Sensor 0: Temperature - 66.50 C

Adapter 1 - ATI Radeon HD 5900 Series
            Sensor 0: Temperature - 72.00 C
ERROR - Get temperature failed for Adapter 2 - ATI Radeon HD 5900 Series

Adapter 3 - ATI Radeon HD 5900 Series
            Sensor 0: Temperature - 52.50 C
user@miner:~$

but this may be something with xfx card itself as i couldn't set fan under windows as well, i see cores and memory speed
in catalysts but no fan speed, perhaps some problems with internal crossfire when on pcie x1?

Thanks Inaba, with your guide i setup a Linux machine in Ubuntu 11.04 & for the past 5-6 hours mining.
The sad thing is i can't able to mine with poclbm or phoenix, but i tried diablominer & it asked java.
I think using software manager, i installed java(i am not sure), then diablominer working fine & mining 6 cards.

I am complete newbie in Linux as well as programming. Your guide completely helped me to set up & mine. I used sdk 2.4.

I also used commands to increase fan speed.
Also, Smartcoin developer gave me command to check temp of all cards for every 5 seconds.

Code:
watch -n 5 aticonfig --odgt --adapter=all
5 means 5 sec, change to 1 to get temp every 1 sec, just copy, paste in terminal.

I under clocked memory to only 900Mhz as it doesn't allow to go below that. Its due to 11.5.
Some said 11.6 don't have limitation & can reduce memory to below BIOS level.

http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=19776.msg275558#msg275558

Can you please give step by step guide to uninstall 11.5 & install 11.6 & also config cards.

I hope after installing  "sudo aticonfig --initial -f --adapter=all" will config cards & reboot to complete. (I am not sure).
I downloaded ati-driver-installer-11-6-x86.x86_64.run file from AMD site & don't know how to go past that.

please give step by step as you did in 1st & 2nd post, so i can uninstall 11.5 & install 11.6 which will help me to reduce mem clock which will reduce temp. & also it will be useful to others.
Thank you.

just download the driver from the amd homepage

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx?type=2.4.1&product=2.4.1.3.42&lang=English

and do that in your terminal in the same folder as the driver:

"sudo sh ati-driver-installer-11-6-x86.x86_64.run"

when this is finished, do

"sudo aticonfig --initial -f --adapter=all"

and a reboot afterwards nearly always helps Wink

I got it to work. Apparently I already had it installed.

All of them said to uninstall the proprietary graphics drivers for ATI and then do the steps in
the tutorial. I did. After I finished going through the tutorial; I couldnt find aticonfig, so I gave up
and reinstalled the old drivers through "Additional Drivers" in Ubuntu. 

Only to find out it gave me the latest version. Cheers.

Could you make a new update to the guide for installing 11.6? 11.6 lets you overclock past the bios limits of the card.

When I run the install, it gives me two choices? I chose 1. I can't "sudo aticonfig --initial -f --adapter=all" it says cannot find aticonfig??
