I got Ubuntu running on a medium end Dell laptop. Got poclbm installed, but I fear I cannot run it without GPU driver support. The video card on this machine is nothing (intel gma x4500) - is there any way to run this miner without doing anything related to GPUs?

Now, I know GPUs are all the rage and hash processing will be increased significantly using a GPU, I'm just tyring to dip my little toe into the bit mining world and make something.

Thanks,
Dave

I think there are miners that use CPU.
