When executing this

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

have this back

Code:
sudo aticonfig --initial -f --adapter=all
Uninitialised file found, configuring.
Fail to link to fglrx-libglx.so, please check whether driver is installed correctly
Using /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Saving back-up to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.fglrx-1

don't know how to fix this, can someone help me?, have 2x6990's in a non crossfire motherboard, but already achieved in windows to got it working (3 cores bug)

You can ignore that error.  The files it is trying to link aren't needed.

ps. could this have anything to do with it?
Code:
E: Unable to locate package libboost-all-dev
I experienced that same error and the reason is that the default ubuntu livecd hasn't enabled universe package sources.
Open your system preferences, select update manager, select settings, select the first tab and you can enable universe there.

Step "make -j3" ends with error:
Code:
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /opt/ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64/lib/x86_64/libOpenCL.so when searching for -lOpenCL
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lOpenCL
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
error: command 'g++' failed with exit status 1
make: *** [all] Error 1
HW: Radeon 5770
This error happens if you try to follow this 64bit tutorial on a 32bit ubuntu installation.

What ISO did you download that does not have this?  The default one I downloaded from the Ubuntu site works just fine, I'm curious what you're downloading that isn't working?

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

You mean what ISOs don't have universe selected by default?
Well these two for example:
ubuntu-11.04-desktop-i386.iso (SHA1: f54bc1a298d74bb5551f153bdb7e1348c6b94d99)
ubuntu-11.04-desktop-amd64.iso (SHA1: f7b0d2b90fbd49794419338c2b9157c095b11bda)

That's the version I am using and it works perfectly fine without any modifications.

f7b0d2b90fbd49794419338c2b9157c095b11bda  ubuntu-11.04-desktop-amd64.iso

I've not tried the i386 version, but I would imagine it is the same.  Unless you are saying you are trying to do all of this off of a running liveCD instance?!

If so, this guide is for an installed version of Ubuntu, not a LiveCD instance (which is why it says Install Ubuntu Natty Narwhal at the beginning of the guide).

That's exactly what I'm saying and most likely also what others have tried while getting those errors.

Well, that will probably not work right!  Why would one do that, anyway?  Just to try it out?

Because the machine doesn't have a harddrive to install ubuntu to?

thanks this was my issue, but now I've given up on live because it was giving me many other issues, so I switched to an install on a 2.5" ide usb drive, and everything works, excellent instructions thank you!

How do I get two video cards working using this guide? I have 2 x ATI 5970 cards, but only one of them works right now. I can mine on both of the GPUs on the first card, but the second card does not show up as an "adapter" at all. How can I fix this? Huh

What does your lspci -v say?

What about aticonfig --lsa ?

Ubuntu Natty(11.04) 64 Bit
Nvidia GTX 260 with the proprietary 270.41.06 drivers installed.

poclbm just spits out "Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC"

Any ideas?

This guide isn't really for NVIDIA cards.  However, the problem you're indicating is has something to do with either your login or URL you have in your miner or your network connection/firewall.

I've successfully used this guide to setup mining on a 6990 (getting 700MH/s) but there are a few changes necessary. Unfortunately I didn't make notes, so it's possible there's something I've forgotten - but I'll post what I can remember in case it helps anyone else out.

  • Use the 2.4 stream SDK rather than 2.1. You can get this from http://developer.amd.com/gpu/AMDAPPSDK/downloads/Pages/default.aspx. Replace ati-stream-sdk-v2.1-lnx64.tgz in the original instructions with AMD-APP-SDK-v2.4-lnx64.tgz.
  • There are two files in /etc/OpenCL/vendors that need to be modified. Change atiocl32.icd and atiocl64.icd so that they contain "libamdocl32.so" and "libamdocl64.so" respectively.

Additionally, in order to be able to run poclbm or aticonfig from a remote SSH session I found that I would have to logon to my Ubutnu desktop at the physical machine. As I wanted to run without a monitor this wasn't ideal, so I setup auto-login using the Ubunutu login screen settings application. I also had to modify /etc/rc.local - adding "xhost +" before "exit 0". Both these things aren't great from a security perspective, so if anyone else can suggest I better way I'd be interested.

Unfortunately I still don't seem able to using aticonfig to read temperatures without a monitor plugged in. I get the following error:
Quote
ERROR - X needs to be running to perform ATI Overdrive(TM) commands
This doesn't make sense because obviously X is running because the system automatically logs on to my Unity desktop. When I can get physical access to the machine again I'll try plugging a null monitor connector onto the graphics card output to see if that helps - but I'd appreciate any other suggestions about what could causing this.

Hope this is helpful to someone!

edit: Changed "xinit +" to "xhost +".

Oh - something else I forgot to mention. It's advised to underclock the memory on the graphics card, but aticonfig won't allow me to take it any lower than the default clock speed. Is any other Linux utility I could use to do this? Alternatively, if I plug the card into a Windows machine and change the clock speeds using Afterburner, will the card remember them when I put it back into my mining PC?

LOL! I think you just helped me, maybe that's why I never managed to install it successfully with SDK 2.4 .. I think I got error when I came to make -j3. Okay, so I just have to rename those 2 files (the registration) like in your post?

At 900, that's about the right MH rate.  You need to raise your clock more if you want to raise your hash rate.

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.
