Ethereum update: Trouble allocating memory on RX 580 (Ubuntu 18.04)
Greetings, I am new to Linux, specifically Ubuntu 18.04, and I am trying to mine on my Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 (4gb). But for some reason, Claymore’s Dual Miner only allocates 2529MB VRAM, therefore i cannot mine Ethereum at all. Fortunately, it does recognise my RX 580. Note that I did BIOS Mod my GPU previously in another rig running Windows 10, and mining worked like a charm in W10. I also installed the AMDGPU-PRO drivers directly from AMD and it’s thanks to that I came this close to finally mine on Ubuntu.
Does anybody know how to fix it?
Thank you in advance.
PS: Oh btw I haven’t done any research in this forum, so if there’s a solution of this problem, please send me the link.
EDIT: I restarted my PC and now it allocates 3737MB… wtf??
Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference.
