Hi, i have a AMD HD7950 GPU and I want use Cycles Render in OpenCL mode on my OS X system.
oclinfo shows following log:
Code:

            cl_khr_local_int32_base_atomics
            cl_khr_local_int32_extended_atomics


But Blender can use only CPU mode. I heard i need to recompile Blender with edited kernel_types.h and device_opencl.cpp files. Are there any additional tips? What exactly i must edit?

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I'm programmer (but on Java)
