Great guide, used to set up 2 miner with 8 GPU : flawless ! Keep in mind NOT to update when prompted by Ubuntu (I tried, it failed to set up everything right).

Hi,

I am getting the following error. I tried the suggestion in the forums, but nothing works so far. Any push in the right direction is appreciated

Uninitialised file found, configuring.

Did a reinstall. I now get the following error instead. I followed the instructions to the T, had to get the python-json using bzr checkout http://bzr.json-rpc.org/trunk instead though

That's not an error.  Those are the normal messages aticonfig spits out when you have it reconfigure your X server. 

It's telling you that the current xorg.conf isn't initialized (also happens with -f to force),  that it's using the previous xorg.conf as it's base, and that it's saving you a backup of the previous config to xorg.conf.original-0. 

If it failed to create a new xorg.conf for some reason, it would tell you that instead.

thanks cicada. Found that out after mutiple os reinstalls. I was using 32 bit before, I am now using 64 bit. However for some that might not have there cards showing up when going doing  ./poclbm.py only shows your cpu. Try doing  sudo ./poclbm.py it should list all your video cards then.

If all else fails try the following below


  59  DISPLAY=:0 sudo aticonfig --initial --adapter=all
   60  echo export DISPLAY=:0 >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc
sudo aticonfig --initial -f --adapter=all


All my cards are now detected

I'm a bit of a n00b to the whole command line thing. I'm getting the following error when I try to execute "./poclbm.py":
Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./poclbm.py", line 3, in <module>
    from BitcoinMiner import *
  File "/home/joey/poclbm/BitcoinMiner.py", line 4, in <module>
    from log import *

I tried a different way to get my machine mining bitcoin with the poclbm miner that did not work, and I'm wondering if the previous method is interfering with this attempt.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS LINES

It was 2 weeks trying to understand why it not recognize the GPU I though was my hardware or a bad following the installation!
u just save my @$$ Cheesy

please PM a worker I can contribute on your mining for a day!

Same to u too Inaba if u give me worker I will contribute for a day!

Unfortunately I am one of the victim of MyBitcoin and I got nothing left I have to start all over
but thank you of this forum and Inaba I am able to mining and keep move on.

I am glade to be part of this community and get an education of this technology, plus there is not ony @$$&le scammers on the net
but we know it's enough to have one bad to make the work of ten to go shadow at list for a wile.

Keep moving...

Thank you again!!!

Hey,

I think if you redo the following steps, use the example for whether 2.1 or 2.4. You basically need to redo from here cd pyopencl-0.92. But before you do that remove all .pyc files and siteconf.py. Redo the instructions and you should be up and running

32-bit 21. sudo sh -c 'echo "/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx32/lib/x86/" >> /etc/ld.so.conf.d/local.conf'
32-bit 22. ./configure.py --cl-inc-dir=/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx32/include/ --cl-lib-dir=/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx32/lib/x86
or
64-bit 21. sudo sh -c 'echo "/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64/lib/x86_64/" >> /etc/ld.so.conf.d/local.conf'
64-bit 22. ./configure.py --cl-inc-dir=/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64/include/ --cl-lib-dir=/opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64/lib/x86_64

23. sudo ldconfig
24. source ~/.bashrc
25. make -j3
26. sudo make install

What does this mean?

bit@Bit:~$ aticonfig --odgc --adapter=all
aticonfig: This program must be run as root when no X server is active


I just bought a new computer, had a computer shop make it, and went through all the steps but I can't tell what number my GPUs are.  I am mine successfully on my CPU so it works, but why won't my cards show up?

try "sudo aticonfig --initial --adapter=all" (enter password) and then "sudo reboot" and try the "aticonfig --odgc --adapter=all" after booting again. do you get the same error?

 At the site http://pypi.python.org/simple/decorator/ there is only decorator-3.3.1.tar.gz!!

 This is happening with somebody!? To temporally workaround this issue, I just copy a "pre-compiled" pyopencl from my other rig to this one and the "make install" works!

 But for a brand new installation, this does not work anymore... Anyway, I'll try to compile this again in a new server next week.

Thanks!

Linux noob here.  I am posting a couple questions somewhat related to this thread because of my need for some HOWTO action.

I followed the 64bit edition of this guide and it's working great for my 4 6790s. (I thought I did my homework on those but now I'm kinda stuck with them and would like to get the most out of them.) Anyway, since I am new to Linux, what can I do to make sure I have everything from this guide properly updated? I am not terribly afraid of the command line, but I still don't know enough about it to just start poking around. Is there anything to update at this time? If so, would someone be so kind as to post the couple lines it would take to get the job done?

I have also seen some posts about 6xxx cards not being able to be adjusted a whole lot. In my case, I am running at 950/850 @ 1.19V. Is there any kind of software utility I could install to let me further underclock my RAM and possibly undervolt to save a couple watts and degrees C?  I haven't had much luck looking around online.  I want to maximize efficiency, profit, etc. So I am looking for the sweet spot and would rather not toast my cards too soon. Perhaps I could even sell them at some point.

In case anyone has a setup similar to mine with really specific suggestions to offer, please PM (or post here for others' sake).

My system specs as follows:

Mobo: 790fx gd70
CPU: Sempron 140
RAM 1GB
GPU: 4x Sapphire 6790   950/850/1.19   
PSU: Corsair AX850

Mining at ~860Mhash/s @ 580W
Temps 65-80C depending on card and location on board

./phoenix.py ... -k phatk DEVICE=1 VECTORS BFI_INT WORKSIZE=256 AGGRESSION=13

I know some info here might be extraneous, but I wanted to post it for posterity and just in case...

I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a Bitcoin today...

Another linux newb here Tongue

I installed Poclbm to Ubuntu 11.04 and I got the first GPU run but the second one says this: http://koti.mbnet.fi/tuxii/error.png

I tried disabling CF through CCC but then I lost the whole adapter, though I left the CF adapter in place.

My setup:

PII X3 720BE - stock
2x 6950 watercooled - unlocked but at stock clocks

I installed the Poclbm following this guide: http://sectio-aurea.blogspot.com/2011/05/bitcoin-mining-on-ubuntu-1104-natty.html

So I have 2.4 SDK installed I think. I then found out that there was a newer SDK and I just downloaded it and did the SDK steps again in the guide. Both SDKs gave me the hardware error. Ati drivers were installed and downloaded by Ubuntu.

I don't believe it's the adapters that really fail since I've been mining with them for almost two months now. If the problem won't go away I will try flipping the GPU back to stock BIOS if it really is unstable with unlocked shaders. Also the adapters are practically new, just the few months of mining 24/7 runnin around 45-60c depending on ambient temperatures.

I tried setting up a new system today with a 5850. I used the 2.1 guide for a 64bit system but my CPU went up to 100%. I've read a bit about there being a bug, but it doesnt seem to be affecting everyone. Just because of this, the 2.4 guide is far better. But I have also seen how some have gotten really good results from the 2.1 setup. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have used to search button already and it didn't seem to turn anything up except to upgrade from 2.1 to something else.

I think the CPU bug is in the driver not the SDK and you can use 11.6 but not 11.7 or later. This is what I found for myself using Ubuntu (2.4 and 11.6, high cpu usage bug went away).

Also be sure to use the newer Phoenix 1.6.2 instead of 1.48. When I finally got around to updating I immediately got a 10 MH/s gain on each card.

Thanks for your reply. How do I go about upgrading what I have? -both the driver and Phoenix. I followed the 2.4 guide to the letter as of today. I am really quite new to linux and so I have no idea what or where to make an update happen. Could you post some commands for me to follow?

I had to go back and look at #1 post to see how the drivers get installed. It looks like this tutorial uses default repository drivers and I'm not sure what version those are now (maybe 11.7?).

You could look at the driver install step from this headless Ubuntu install below. It's actually the one I ended up using myself as I wanted a headless config (no monitor or desktop) and it looked simpler to me too.

But even with a desktop I think the driver install step should work. I used the same process to test out 11.5, 11.6 and 11.7. You've likely already done the other steps in this install so no need to repeat.

http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=9239.0

The only thing is to change the number 5 to 6 in the filenames referenced. Also I remember I deleted *.deb between testing each driver out just in case dpkg didn't overwrite them.

This line below is important any time you change the GPUs in your system or move between slots. You get unpredictable results if the config isn't updated each time and the system restarted.

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

For phoenix you can follow the same steps in that tutorial but don't start with the 1.48 file choose the 1.6.2 one instead or "latest" (see link in Phoenix forum post). You can have them both present in separate directories, just make sure your miner start-script uses the one you intend by either using the full path or by cd'ing to correct version before running phoenix.
