HD-7950 sadly still are not supported.
Anybody have an idea what i may do (while supporting HiveOS, and not upgrading cards or going ‘somewhere else’)

This OS is exactly what i’m looking for! But i require support for HD 7900 or 7000 series GPU at the moment :frowning:
Any comments or suggestions regarding…Developer options, launch parameters, BIOS revisions or GPU Modded BIOS, Older versions of HiveOs with HD-7950 driver support…will be much appreciated.
Feel free to contact me anytime.
Until i troubleshooted this for hours did i realize, I wont be able to enjoy this lovely bit of OS until there is a workaround for HD79** series GPUS.

Thank you for you time. My respect, confidence, and thanks go out to the HiveOs Team.
To Developers of HiveOS… If you need a 7850 for testing these potential fixes, i can ship you one for free. Yes a7850 pitcarn, but i really need a fix for tahiti . To all others, thanks is advance!

Man, I feel your pain :smiley: Got a rig with 6x HD7950, and that sh*t is still running on Windows, waiting for HiveOS to support Tahiti cpus… Still waiting and praying for it :slight_smile: I’ve tried for hours too to make it work, without success…

Well, it does work for me. I have some errors sometimes, like this :

GPU #0 returned incorrect data! 726a196
GPU #0 returned incorrect data! 114af201
GPU #1 returned incorrect data! e315a192
GPU #1 returned incorrect data! 30082c51
GPU #0 returned incorrect data! 384477
GPU #0 returned incorrect data! 3ff7ffbf
GPU #0 returned incorrect data! 3fffff6f

But it does work, and so far so good, no rejected shares.

Congratulations my friend!

I am still stuck on windows and it’s been costing me lots of time.

I have the variables you used. (Almost the same I use for windows)
How did you navigate to the miner folder, and edit the config?

Feeling like a " stranger" in this world of Linux @__@

Once you’re logued in, first stop the miner, then edit the miner file :
nano /hive/bin/miner (nano is pretty easy to use)
Once you have the file opened, you’see these lines :

RIG_CONF="/hive-config/rig.conf"
WALLET_CONF="/hive-config/wallet.conf"

Paste the lines right below these, save (CTRL+O) and exit (CTRL+X).
You can now restart the miner :slight_smile:

Feel free to message me if you need any more help.

YES! This worked. I put it under RIG_CONF and it works. Thank you so much.

Im Hashing, but much slower than usual. I should be getting about 240-285 sols on Equihash.

Do you think this could be a kernal issue?

Hi MyGodItsFullOfStars,

This was helpful to me. So thanks for starting this thread.

One question. I have two HD7950 in a hiveOS install. But I cannot control the fans of either no matter if I load settings in wallet config or tuning config.

Do you have any issues with fans. Cards are getting very hot as a result.

Is there a workaround on this as well.

Also can you share your Claymore variables with me. The rig I have is unstable and I have tried numerous variables. Can you share yourClaymore config override settings please.

Thanks,
G
