i need to setup a 5x sapphire 5850 mining rig in linux because i have tired of the 7 days freeze ADL bug on windows 7 !

i have tried to study how to play with ubuntu but failed to success

i need to complete the following task

1) setup a cgminer 2.4.2 with linux running with 5x sapphire 5850
( i have found some threat talking on cgminer installation but i cant make it work as i have already download and extract on desktop and i just dont know how to install )

and i need to put a .bat file on desktop so i can open it easily

2) install best driver for 5850 driver maybe ati 11.11 ?

3) Install devcoin client on ubuntu on 12.04LTS

any help would be appreciated !

That is the easiest tutorial for Ubuntu / Xubuntu 12.04

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Gw7YPYgMgNNU42skibULbJJUx_suP_CpjSEdSi8_z9U/edit

if you get some wierd liburl 4 error type:

sudo apt-get install curl

that solves the problem.

I hope that helped.

If it did: 1DoqqekDSuVM3hEet396rjqFypb63SHoS9 is my adress.

Dont use ubuntu 12 if this is a dedicated mining rig. Backporting older drivers may not work, and even if it does, its gonna be way above your head.

My advice: install ubuntu 12.04 on your primary desktop or laptop to get familiar with it. But for the mining rig, have a look at BAMT or even good old linuxcoin.

If for some reason you need a full desktop and HDD install on the mining rig, use an older version of (x)ubuntu like 11.10. It will install older drivers and sdk, which are better for mining.

just take 2.4.2 prebuilt. they work on 12.04.

wget http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/cgminer-2.4.2-x86_64-built.tar.bz2

tar jvxf cgminer-2.4.2-x86_64-built.tar.bz2

cd cgminer-2.4.2-x86_64-built

chmod +x cgminer

./cgminer -n (To check if all cards are detected)

If yes:

./cgminer -o http://pool.com:8332 -u username.worker -p password -rest.of.parameters

I hope that helps.
