R9 290x and CAL support on GNU/Linux

I have R9 290x card and I try to use AMD Compute Abstraction Layer (CAL). My setup is as follows:


- 3.10.53 kernel from

- kernel driver

- AMD-APP-SDK-v2.7-RC-lnx64 (it seems it is the newest AMD-APP-SDK with CAL support)


My test application is simple, it just calls calInit() and calShutdown() functions. Unfortunately, calInit() fails with CAL_RESULT_ERROR return code.


Does R9 290x card support CAL? Does AMD-APP-SDK-v2.7-RC-lnx64 work with new card, in my case with R9 290x?


Best Regards,
