Tutorial - Ubuntu Linux RX 480 Driver Installation

First, you need to download and install the RX 480 driver for Ubuntu Linux.

Use the following command to update the package database and install the required packages.

# apt-get update
# apt-get install autotools-dev autoconf libtool pkg-config
# apt-get install libcurl3 libncurses5-dev libudev-dev
# apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-dev ocl-icd-opencl-dev unzip
# dpkg --add-architecture i386

Download and install the AMD Radeon RX 480 GPU driver.

# mkdir /downloads/driver –p
# cd /downloads/driver
# wget --referer https://www2.ati.com 'https://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ubuntu/amdgpu-pro-17.40-492261.tar.xz'
# tar -Jxvf amdgpu-pro-17.40-492261.tar.xz
# cd amdgpu-pro-17.40-492261
# ./amdgpu-pro-install

You need to reboot your computer.

# reboot

Tutorial - Electroneum GPU Mining RX 480

Now, you need to access the MINERGATE WEBSITE and create an account.

As our last step, you need to download and extract the miner software: Claymore CryptoNote GPU miner

# mkdir /downloads/miner -p
# cd /downloads/miner
# wget https://github.com/nanopool/Claymore-XMR-Miner/releases/download/v11.3/Claymore.s.CryptoNote.AMD.GPU.Miner.v11.3.-.LINUX.tar.gz
# tar -zxvf Claymore.s.CryptoNote.AMD.GPU.Miner.v11.3.-.LINUX.tar.gz
# echo > epools

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

# ./nsgpucnminer -xpool stratum+ssl://etn-eu1.nanopool.org:13433 -xwal etnkFHPr529VB3TdmW5TwK8cWPjeNG2avXVCCLYSMb7ELarbZQzyfEJMZ8niYDnNeGhqpU4sBTvqt2XuVHbp47q42hCSsm1J7A -xpsw x -allpools 1

As a requirement, you need to change the Electroneum wallet address from the command above to your wallet address.

The following Electroneum address was used only as an example:



It is taking a very long time to find an Eletroneum block to mine.

The computer was able to obtain the following hashrate: 686 H/s
