Does it detect both the cards? i keep reading the list even if i'm not really active, so forgive me if i come back from time to time and then i vanish, i have some works to finish :-( i really think a mixed environment (nvidia+amd+intel) is a big chaos. this because of the /dev/* files created, the /etc/OpenCL/vendors/*.icd that could create side effects unneeded. i really believe at the moment we should test dual cards of the same family, with nvidia it should not be a problem but with AMD it means having a "dummy" x server with dummy devices connected to make it work . Don't forget other important aspects: - User must be logged in the X server - and must be the same to use OpenCL: i tested this some months ago i'm not able to test it again at the moment but feel free to try it. This make me believe that you can't work on multiple card at the same time, but you need to run a separate john session for the other card ; at least for AMD and withouth taking in account things like SLI or CrossFire (never used both of them, i saw some threads on hashcat forums) Cheers Samuele
