I have finally manage to buy myself a new laptop a Dell Inspiron i7 Second Gen. I have installed my favorite Linux Distribution "LinuxMint", and have all my hardware installed properly. I have Blender 2.79b and all is good. But when I go to my User Preference -> System, I cannot select any compute device!
If I check my OS info, I get the CPU info and my Intel Graphics car info, but not my GPU;
I have check at the command line that my GPU is well installed, when I run the command "lshw -c video" I can see my Radeon R5 listed:
Now I understand that not all GPU are supported, but I would thought that I can at least select my CPU! If anyone could help with this issue. I have looked at the CUDA driver but cuda supports only NVIDIA if I am not mistaken. Any other help will be welcome?
My Apologies if my question is in the wrong thread. Thank you kindly
