FindNumDevices can not Find HD4870 in my machine (Debian GNU/Linux Lenny amd64)

FindNumDevices Output "Device Count = 0"...

I referred to;O=D

and I install ATI Stream SDK 1.4b to my machine (Debian GNU/Linux Lenny amd64).


My machine spec is

  CPU: PhenomII 955,

  Memory: DDR3-1333 4GByte and

  Video: Vipor-X HD4870 2G GDDR5.


"fglrxinfo" says as follows.

$ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series
OpenGL version string: 2.1.8304 Release

But "FindNumDevices" says as follows.

$ /usr/local/atical/bin/lnx64/FindNumDevices
Supported CAL Runtime Version: 1.3.185
Found CAL Runtime Version: 1.3.186
Use -? for help
CAL initialized.
Finding out number of devices :-
Device Count = 0
CAL shutdown successful.


I can't understand that FindNumDevices say "Device Count = 0". Please teach me how to let FindNumDevices recognize HD4870.

Did you solve the problem?

I'm also running Debian/lenny amd64 (Opteron and different card, though), I had to put the Radeon into the first slot and disable onboard video. Nevertheless `FindNumDevices` finds the card only if I'm directly logged in through gdm, neither from the console nor if I log in via ssh (pretty nasty thing, as it's a compute node in the institute's server room...).
