OS: Arch Linux kernel 4.7.6-1
GPU Driver: AMDGPU 1.1.2-1
Xorg version: 1.18.4-1
Blender version: 2.78.a-1 (latest in official Arch repo)
I'm 100% sure Xorg is loading the GPU driver based on the log file
/var/Xorg/Xorg.1.log. I've enabled OpenCL with:
CYCLES_OPENCL_SPLIT_KERNEL_TEST=1 blender and then I selected my GPU under User Preferences > System > Compute Device > OpenCL > AMD FIJI GPU.
Under the scene settings, I switched Compute device from CPU to GPU. And I of course switched to Cycles Engine.
When trying to render things, however, blender throws an error about being unable to find the CPU known as FIJI and renders nothing.
How do I get my Fury X to render in blender on Linux?
I don't have an integrated GPU on my CPU, so unless only one process can deal with the GPU at a time (which shouldn't be the case), Xorg should be able to share my GPU with blender.
