Rewrite your xorg.conf by running sudo aticonfig --adapter=all --initial -f and reboot.

I'm pretty sure I did this several times, but I'll try it again. Thanks NaN

2x Sapphire R9 280x vapor-x oc 3gb ddr5 384bit
1 psu chieftech super 750w

My bat file: clpts_x86-64.exe -u x -p x -t 0,0,1,1 -a 2

Miner version: clpts-v0.2.2_win_x86-64

Undervolted as follow:

Core voltage (mv): 1094 mv
power limit: 0
core clock: 1055 mhz
memory clock: 1500 mhz
fan speed: 56%
Temp: Gpu0 - 66 oC
           GPU1 - 55 oC


Hi znakistu, I have very similar config just like you. My two 7970 are Sapphire ref. design cards. I flashed them to GHz bios (with default voltage 1.162v), which mean now they both have 1050/6000(effective), and yours are 1055/6000. Just wondering how stable have you run under that voltage, 1094mv? I am thinking to undervolt it but not sure how to test it, because the ref. design, my cards are now 85 oC and 82 oC. Hoping I can under volt it and give me some temp down. Can you share me your experience?

@NaN, our 7970/280X are all at sweet point with your num. 2 algorithm... It is weird. I tested each alg. one by one.

four, install amd app sdk 2.9
for what it's worth, it looks like sdk shipped with 13.12 is more recent than 2.9 (see dll versions). does it work better with older dlls?

You don't need to install the APP SDK for my miner because the OpenCL drivers for the GPU are integrated in the Catalyst driver.

There is no reason to install the SDK with 13.12. The OpenCL libraries are included. Only install if you want to compile, and even then
be VERY careful as I did try to install the SDK and compile but the SDK version didn't match well with the 13.12 drivers.

I wasn't implying it was a miner bug. I was able to get the miner to fire up on a 5770, even though it couldn't do anything. But when I put the 290 in the machine, then I get this code. I reinstalled the drivers, but same thing. I get this error. So I've got something wrong with the software installation otherwise. Been Googling for two days now. Nothing seems to work. This is the full error. Running AMD 13.12 drivers. And AMD APP SDK 2.9

I was just told AMD forgot some stuff when they released 13.12 and that was causing the problem. 

Instead of patching it, just use the AMD 14.1 beta instead and it should work.

I'm running debian7 with amd 13.12 but only getting 7700c/m from my 3 280x, using multiple threads doesn't seem to improve rate, I'm using -a 1

Also CPU usage is very high 

Seems people are getting better results on windows ...

Ouch meaning what? Sucked he had to have someone else fix it? Or that 14.1 drivers suck?

No, "ouch" because AMD f***ed it up. I hoped that those times were over... That is not the only problem with the Catalyst drivers (e.g. the 290(X) performance inconsistency in Windows and Linux)

Rewrite your xorg.conf by running sudo aticonfig --adapter=all --initial -f and reboot.

I did this. No dice. Then I uninstalled and re-installed the 14.1 Catalyst drivers 3 times tonight hoping it would work. Still getting the same message. Error -1 on line 96 whatever that means. My 290 is fine, I can mine in windows, but I want to get this working in Linux. I'm really liking Linux other than this issue.

Well, crud. Seems my miner will not start in Linux. Stupid error code. There's nothing on the web about this either. The card shows up fine when running aticonfig --list-adapters. Everything else works as well it seems. I need some ideas if anyone has something for me to try?

Here are the code lines I'm trying to start in the Terminal. Maybe there's something wrong here. I am on water. Could the absence of a fan be the culprit? I know on Windows I had to add a line to get it to work. Sure its different in Linux if this is the issue. Anyway, here's the code:

#!/bin/bash

./clpts -u username.minername -p password -t 0 -a 1

The error indicates that something is wrong with OpenCL. I would check whether the AMD APP SDK is correctly uninstalled and I would try another driver installed via apt-get.

I so hope the Windows issue is resolved for the 290x's.  Not sure how long I can stomach Linux's lack of undervolting/clocking tools for these cards.  I can't even see what voltage my cards are running at... :(

Has anyone tried mining with the 14.1 drivers on windows with the 290x's?

I've been reluctant to try the 14.1 drivers because of the significant performance impacts seen with scrypt miners.  I know my performance on the ASUS R9-290XOC is crap (550KH/s) compared to where it should be.

In clpts I'm getting around 3250c/m with the R9-290X under Windows 8.1 and the 13.x AMD drivers.

How much better is it under Linux?
