All this looks even harder on windows...so I decided to use LinuxCoin.
When I try to start GUIMiner I always get this message(just like on Windows):
No openCL devices were found.
If you only want to mine using CPU or CUDA, you can ignore this message. If you want to mine on ATI graphics cards, you may need to install the ATI Stream SDK, or your GPU may not support OpenCL.
So then I downloaded this: http[Suspicious link removed]cutables/atistream-1.4.0_beta-lnx64.tar.gzip
When I extract it there are two .run files. I executed them both and agreed with the licence (or something). So both were successfully installed I guess...
The problem is when I run GUIMiner again I get the same message... So I guess GUIMiner does not recognize that ATI Stream SDK is installed (or is it?).
OK there's also an option to ignore this message and just try to mine with the CPU unit. But that also doesn't work. The error message is: pyopencl.LogicError: clGetPlatformIDs failed> platform not found khr
This is just another universe for me... What can I do???
