On the Linux console, use the following commands to install the required packages:

# apt-get install autotools-dev autoconf libtool pkg-config
# apt-get install libcurl3 libcurl4-openssl-dev libncurses5-dev
# apt-get install libudev-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev
# apt-get install ocl-icd-opencl-dev unzip
# reboot

Now, let's download and install the AMD GPU driver using the file: amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz

# mkdir /downloads/driver –p
# cd /downloads/driver
# wget https://techexpert.tips/driver/amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz
# tar -Jxvf amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz
# cd amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504/
# ./amdgpu-pro-install
# reboot

As our last step, download and extract the Bitcoin Gold miner software.

# cd /downloads
# wget https://github.com/poolgold/ClaymoreBTGMiner/releases/download/v12.6-BTG/Claymore.s.BTG.AMD.GPU.Miner.v12.6.-.LINUX.zip
# unzip Claymore.s.BTG.AMD.GPU.Miner.v12.6.-.LINUX.zip
# cd Claymore.s.BTG.AMD.GPU.Miner.v12.6.-.LINUX
# rm epools.txt

To start the Bitcoin Gold GPU mining use the following command, as an example:

# ./zecminer64 -zpool btg.pool.minergate.com:3257 -zwal virtualcoin.videos@gmail.com -zpsw x -i 2 -allpools 1

As a requirement, you need to change the username virtualcoin.videos@gmail.com from the command above to your username.

Keep in mind that the username virtualcoin.videos@gmail.com was used only as an example.
