I am planning on attaching the vbios for MSI MECH RX 5700 that “makes” it a 5700 XT and increases the hashrate to 53.

Install RX 580 Mining Drivers on Debian Based Distributions

Use wget to download AMD drivers.

wget https://drivers.amd.com/drivers/linux/amdgpu-pro-20.45-1164792-ubuntu-20.04.tar.xz --referer https://support.amd.com

Extract archive.

tar xf amdgpu-pro-20.45-1164792-ubuntu-20.04.tar.xz

Nanominer – Lower intensity for GPU

https://help.nanominer.org/article/168-gpu-and-cpu-control

By default Nanominer sets the memTweak option to 1. This slightly improves memory timings. However it introduces a little bit of UI lag. This can be a problem if you are trying to use your computer for other tasks. The simple resolution is to change/add the memTweak setting to 0.

memTweak=0

Example config

wallet = WALLET_ADDRESS
; Coin to mine.
coin = ETH
; (Optional) Rig (worker) name.
rigName = EthMiner
memTweak=0

Install Ravencoin Wallet on Fedora

These instructions are for installing the Ravencoin wallet on Fedeora, but the instructions should work for CentOS, and be similar for Debian/Ubuntu Distros.

The Linux readme can be found here.

Install dependencies

sudo dnf -y install zeromq libevent boost libdb4 miniupnpc libdb4-cxx protobuf-lite-devel

Download the binaries.  Manually here or with wget.  Latest files should be on their github https://github.com/RavenProject/Ravencoin/releases/latest

wget http://www.incredigeek.com/home/downloads/Ravencoin/fedora27-x86_64.tar.gz

Note if you don’t have wget installed, you can install it by running

sudo dnf install -y wget

Unzip the downloaded files

tar zxvf fedora27-x86_64.tar.gz

Change to the new directory

cd fedora

Launch the Raven Wallet GUI

./raven-qt
