Compiling with AMD Support


Hope all is well, i took your advice and never mined on my old HD graphics and only CPU mined.

OSX 10.13 brings allot more support and apparently AMD RX range will plug n play.

I have a old style mac pro, i know you recomend not to mine with AMD on macs due to the heat but the old cheese greaters have much more airflow and cooling over say a imac so was considering upgrading to a AMD RX580 and giving it a go.

I see here you have compiled for AMD and CPU

I have been compiling my own using the instruction given from xmr stak but they only give instructions for Nvidia or CPU only.

Would you mind explain the steps needed to compile with AMD support?

For Example CPU + Nvidia:

brew tap caskroom/drivers
brew cask install nvidia-cuda
brew install hwloc libmicrohttpd gcc openssl cmake
cmake . -DOPENSSL_ROOT_DIR=/usr/local/opt/openssl -DOpenCL_ENABLE=OFF
make install

CPU only:

brew install hwloc libmicrohttpd gcc openssl cmake
cmake . -DOPENSSL_ROOT_DIR=/usr/local/opt/openssl -DCUDA_ENABLE=OFF -DOpenCL_ENABLE=OFF
make install

Something else i was going to run by you, have you ever considered switching from xmr to another crypto? XMR-STAK supports several others. Or perhaps different miner altogether, but i believe the hash rates are much lower or efficient to mine much else on a mac, i may be wrong.

I was going to play with ubuntu on a mac but never got round to it.

Thanks again.
