I am starting to get headaches trying to figure this all out.
What I want to do is get my 4 graphics cards bitcoin mining for me again but on ubuntu. I have finally managed to get ubuntu to recognize all of my cards, but now it seems I cannot get OpenCL to work/be recognized.
(System x4 5830s, Evga Z77 FTW, Intel 3570K)
So the furthest I have gotten is being able to run the commandand get all four cards to show up, and also runCode:
sudo lspci | grep VGA
reboot and runCode:
sudo aticonfig --adapter=all --initial
and see each card and its temprature.Code:
aticonfig --adapter=all --odgt
Where I am failing is with my mining software trying to use OpenCL.
I am going by this guide http://www.distrogeeks.com/install-c...2-10-4-ubuntu/ and I fail at step #25. I get the feedback fromCode:
Configuration Options Summary:
curses.TUI...........: FOUND: -lncurses
OpenCL...............: NOT FOUND. GPU mining disabled.
Here is some other advice I have gotten https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=149528.0;
The best they can tell me is
But that is for windows. (original article for the quoted info http://devgurus.amd.com/thread/160032 )Quote:
There will be a mismatch between the AMD.APP\bin\x86\opencl.dll and the syswow64\opencl.dll. Cgminer will crash, unless you have precompiled kernels (*.bin) files that are compatible in the folder. By copying the AMD.APP dll's (amdocl64.dll/amdocl.dll and opencl.dll) to system32 and syswow64 it will work. Remember to take ownership of the file, then change the filerights (as Windows protects those files by default).
I was also told go here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=78229.0
But I really doubt it is that easy....Quote:
Never mind it's gotten much easier now.
In case anyone is wondering...
Install Restricted AMD drivers from repos
cd to where you saved it
sudo apt-get install python-pyopencl
Then download your mining software of choice and you're good to go.
So. Can anyone help?
How can I tell which version of AMD-APP-SDK I have? How can I tell if I have OpenCL downloaded, installed, and enabled?
