State of AMD GPU mining on Linux

i just downloaded it and ran it after putting my addy in the config file

Anybody actually get paid from coinsforall? i have heard comments that it is scammy…

Just to update this thread to say as far as I am aware nothing was released today that changes the original post.

I agree, coinsforall has dropped payout thresh hold, I have .011 requested but not been paid.

What drivers do you need on Linux ?

I got old 280X cards so using fglrx-updates. I have some 380 and 390X cards tried ubuntu 16.04 with AMGGPU-PRO driver something doing just won’t do OpenCL correctly. So getting about 30 on 390X about 15 on 380s and 16 on the 280Xs I really thing CPU is the way to go in terms of Wattage and initial cost. The GPUs are not massively better. Like 100x. I have my two macs an i7 and a MaCPRO XENON running Sms MacPro at 8 sol/s and i7 at 6 sol/s. I am sure MacPro could do better without the VM

Think I am in the same boat as you. Running a 280x,285 and 380 card rig, and using ubuntu 15.04 with fglrx-updates. Tried to upgrade to 16.04 and with AMGGPU-PRO driver, which did not work well. Have you gotten any GPU miner to work with Ubuntu 15.04+fglrx?

This was mentioned on another thread regarding a Claymore Zcash miner

Today I tried existing miners, I don’t like their stability and speed.
Ok, I will release first version of my ZCash miner very soon. AMD only.
Claymore's Dual Ethereum AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner v15.0 (Windows/Linux)

You guys still have problem with stale shares? I dont see any new version or fix

@cryptomined

i found the linux install straight forward and stable

So, I can use this miner with flypool after compiling it myself ??

no you can not use this miner on flypool
use genoil v4

For the record using silent army kernels I’m getting faster speeds under linux than windows, in the region of 10-15%.

My power usage is correspondingly lower in windows, even a little better than that. About 600W (linux) vs 450W (windows) for a 6 card rig, but it fluctuates a lot more than, for example, eth mining.

I haven’t done a lot of tweaking - I tend not to tweak things until they’re stable at their default settings! :smiley:

I’m mining on Windows at the moment for greater pool choice, but I would prefer to mine on linux all things being even.

Is the list in the original post still valid? Is the Coinsforall.io Miner still the best option for GPU mining on linux?

Ideally looking for an AMD GPU miner with stratum support, to mine to suprnova.

Not on Linux you can’t.

Basically yes. Coinsforall is the only stable multi GPU miner currently but of course it is missing stratum support. Zogminer is getting really close though - I just ran a single GPU for over 12 hours and got a steady 35 H/s out of an RX 480. They have release multi GPU solo mining so only a mater of days before this one is a viable option.

Can someone post a step by step guide how to get Linux up and running with the new AMDGPU-PRO drivers for the RX 470/480.

I downloaded Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Installed. And mouse wasn’t working. So I used terminal to install AMDGPU-PRO 16.30 drivers and they seem to have installed but there were a few warnings/errors along the way.

When I restarted, I got a black screen. Could only access the computer by remote SSH.

It seems Xubuntu 14 with the fglrx was much much simpler.

Step by step guide is here http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDGPU-PRO-Install.aspx if you haven’t already seen it.

How many cards do you have? I always install the drivers with just a single card plugged into the first PCIe x 16 slot and then add more cards and risers after this works (not entirely sure if necessary but always worked for me)

Yes I followed that guide also and did it one card at the time.

right and that does suck
wish he would make one for linux

you can use my Linux Operating System for ming Zcash on GPUs :slight_smile:
simplemining.net

I will upload newest image v1013 of R and RX system in a 30 minutes. if it shows on website, you can download and use :slight_smile:
