SUPRNOVA Account

First, you need to access the SUPRNOVA WEBSITE and create an account.

Now, create a worker account, as shown in the video above.

AMD RADEON RX 480 / 580 - DRIVER INSTALLATION

Use the following commands to install the amd radeon rx 580 driver. 

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

After rebooting the computer, you need to download the driver file amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz and copy it to the /downloads/drivers folder.

I downloaded this file on a windows computer and used the WinSCP program to transfer it to the linux computer.

I will assume that you did transfer the amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz to the /downloads/drivers folder from now on.

# mkdir /downloads/driver -p
# cd /downloads/driver
# tar -Jxvf amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz
# cd amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504/
# ./amdgpu-pro-install
# reboot

 

AMD-APP-SDK INSTALLATION 

After rebooting the computer you need to download the file AMD-APP-SDKInstaller-v3.0.130.136-GA-linux64.tar.bz2 and copy it to the /downloads/app-sdk folder.

 I downloaded this file on a windows computer and used the WinSCP program to transfer it to the linux computer.

I will assume that you did transfer the AMD-APP-SDKInstaller-v3.0.130.136-GA-linux64.tar.bz2 to the /downloads/app-sdk folder from now on.

# mkdir /downloads/app-sdk -p
# cd /downloads/app-sdk
# tar -jxvf AMD-APP-SDKInstaller-v3.0.130.136-GA-linux64.tar.bz2
# ./AMD-APP-SDK-v3.0.130.136-GA-linux64.sh
# reboot

 
SGMINER - GPU MINER INSTALLATION
After rebooting the computer you need to download the file   ADL_SDK_V10.2.zip and copy it to the /downloads/adl-sdk folder.

I downloaded this file on a windows computer and used the WinSCP program to transfer it to the linux computer.

I will assume that you did transfer the ADL_SDK_V10.2.zip to the /downloads/adl-sdk folder from now on.

# mkdir /downloads/adl-sdk -p
# cd /downloads/adl-sdk
# unzip ADL_SDK_V10.2.zip

 

Now, we need to download, compile and install the sgminer gpu miner software. 

# mkdir /downloads/miner -p
# cd /downloads/miner
# git clone https://github.com/genesismining/sgminer-gm
# cp /downloads/adl-sdk/include/* /downloads/miner/sgminer-gm/ADL_SDK/ -R
# cd /downloads/miner/sgminer-gm/
# git submodule init
# git submodule update
# autoreconf -i
# CFLAGS="-O2 -Wall -march=native -std=gnu99" ./configure
# make
# make install

 

Start mining dash using the command below as an example:

# sgminer -T -I21 --algorithm x11 -o stratum+tcp://dash80.suprnova.cc:80 -u virtualcoin.dash -p 123


Important: You need to change the username and the password from the command above to reflect the worker account that you created on the suprnova website.
