we get bug reports sometimes about CUDA rendering not working on some systems. (Rendering fails to start, error message comes up).
During the development process it’s possible that something breaks (Fault on our side), but in a lot of cases it’s a issue of the GPU / GPU driver / Operating system combination.
So I’d like to gather some feedback about working configurations to get some idea where the issues might be. Thank you.
Please only! use the Blender 2.66 Testbuild 1 for this, http://download.blender.org/release/Blender2.66/ not another build.
How to test:
- Download Blender 2.66 Testbuild 1 if you don’t have it yet.
- Enable your GPU in the User Preferences and set Cycles to use the GPU.
- Press F12 and render the default cube scene.
- Report here if that works or not and mention GPU + GPU driver + OS.
