Greetings.

Have not seen any WU for Radeon/ATI GPU in months.
Are they there - or just rare?

Thanks, Jay

Other Linux/ATI users seem to be getting plenty of work. I think that the Mesa driver doesn't fully support the necessary OpenCL platform. I think you need the full AMDPro-GPU drivers to use the SoG app. Not sure since I am an Nvidia user. Maybe you can ask for help in the Questions and Problems forum. Or PM a Linux/ATI user and ask how they got things to work.
