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

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

ETHMINER

Use the following commands to install the ETHMINER software: 

# mkdir /download/ethminer -p
# cd /downloads/ethminer
# wget https://github.com/ethereum-mining/ethminer/releases/download/v0.11.0/ethminer-0.11.0-Linux.tar.gz
# tar –zxvf ethminer-0.11.0-Linux.tar.gz
# cp bin/ethminer /usr/bin/

Start mining Ethereum using the command below, as an example:

# ethminer -G -F http://eth.pool.minergate.com:55751/This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
