Okay, I am trying to follow this instruction guide:


and the 20th step did not work because it could not find the server. I downloaded it from AMD themselves except not version 5.0, but version 6.0.

I go up to the 24th step and when I typed that in it said, "cp: target 'ADL_SDK/' is not a directory"

I then installed it and ran it, but then it gave me this message every few seconds or so:

"KnC spi: Can not open SPI device /dev/spidev1.0: No such file or directory.

Please help, I really want to mine some bitcoins and also the similar questions did not help.

It sounds like you were not in the right directory. Modify this if needed and see if it helps

cp /home/USER/include/* /home/USER/cgminer-3.7.2/ADL_SDK

Just replace USER with your username. If you are running as root (not recommended) then change /home/USER/ to /root/

If that still says directory not found then I don't think you extracted the package from AMD to the right directoy
