How to use OpenCL via SSH for normal users?

Jump to solution

I've been trying to find some way to let remote users run OpenCL programs via SSH without them having to start up a local X session. The closest I've found is here but it still requires an X session somewhere.

Is there driver support for this? When will there be driver support for running OpenCL programs without an X session?

Looking at http://www.amd.com/en-gb/products/graphics/workstation/firepro-remote-graphics/s9150 makes me very interested in OpenCL compute farms but they'd be remote and very definitely headless. Currently the card seems useless as there's no driver support. Is this a feature supported in the FirePro drivers but not in the consumer drivers?

Thanks

Try to type

> export DISPLAY=:0

in the remote terminal and run your application (X session have to be started on the host).

Thanks for this but I do not want to require an X session to be able to run an OpenCL program.

Fantastic! I'll try this out. I'm not sure if this solution would be safe to deploy but will be fine for an internal proof of concept. I hope AMD have a solution for the driver to be shipped with the S9150....
