I've been looking over the various guides for mining on Ubuntu 10.10, 11,04, 11.10 now that I've upgraded my system

AMD users installing Ubuntu 12.04 get a variant of the Catalyst 12.4 drivers, which IIRC already has the AMD SDK included or some variety of baked-in OpenCL support that previous versions haven't. That sounds like a significant enough difference to break all previous how-to guides.

So are there any suggestions for getting up and running on the new Ubuntu LTS?

I was using phoenix on Ubuntu 10.10 before thanks to this howto... how much of it is still applicable? What do most people install for mining now? I have a Radeon 5850

I don't know about the drivers or anything, but I recently installed bitcoind and p2pool on 12.04.

bitcoind compiling was easy. I just had to use a newer version of libdb

Code: (
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y git-core build-essential libssl-dev libboost-all-dev libdb5.1-dev libdb5.1++-dev libgtk2.0-dev

git clone
cd bitcoin/src

make -f makefile.unix clean; make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP= bitcoind
# from #bitcoin-dev:
# sacarlson: USE_UPNP= : don't build upnp, USE_UPNP=0 : build but disable by default, USE_UPNP=1 : build but enable by default

# optionally,
strip bitcoind
