I'm quite new on Boinc.
How do I enable both Nvidia and Intel GPU for crunching, on Ubuntu?
It appears Boinc only finds 1 GPU.
My CPU is a Celeron G4900 (dual core, with UHD Graphics 610).

Drivers, which for Linux may be a problem for an Intel GPU. Not only does it need to be detected, it also needs to be able to do OpenCL calculations which under Windows is a doozy, but under Linux isn't. That said, you sure you want to use the Intel GPU? It's costing more in electricity and heat than it's worth crunching with.

Edit: check https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/opencl-drivers and https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/Beignet/
Please do not private message me for tech support, these will be ignored!

Do as I say, don't do as I do.
