Re: Linux 290x OpenCL ?

Prasad Hariharan Crispin Wellington Have there been any updates with this issue?  I am having the same problem with Ubuntu Saucy, Catalyst 13.2, and AMD-APP-SDK 2.9. Similar to yurtesen, aticonfig is functioning and can see the 290x. clinfo lists my 7990 and cpu but not the 290x.

I can also replace the 290x with a 6970/79070 so I know it's not an issue with multiple cards.

Re: Linux 290x OpenCL ?

@yurtesen what model of card do you have? I have a Sapphire R9 290X with the same problem.  I'm curious if there may be a simple fix in that the OpenCL library is missing a deviceID for our model(s).

Re: Linux 290x OpenCL ?

don't install APP SDK. it contains older version of OpenCL which doesn't work with this card. see this response Re: Linux 290x OpenCL ?

Re: Linux 290x OpenCL ?

Please can some staff member or more competent member of this forum write a consice step-by-step list in a clear manner on how to get this $600 USD Card running with OpenCL on latest Linux Distributions? I am talking Ubuntu 13.10 and beyond.

I will very much look forward to this. Above description and recursive reference - pardon my english - is a joke.

Thank you and highly appreciated!

Search the forum for ubuntu headless and you will find good guides easily. If you can't get it to work, ask for help in the forum.

Re: Linux 290x OpenCL ?

I can verify that OpenCL with the R9 290 works in Ubuntu 13.10.

First I installed the Catalyst-14.1beta1.3, and then the AMD-APP-SDK-v2.9-lnx64. But the latter messed things up preventing my application (Luxrender) to identify the OpenCL device. So I removed files which had been added by AMD-APP inside /opt, and /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ and I also opened /etc/profile to remove the few lines of text it had added there. Then I removed Catalyst by purge fglrx*, re-installed it, and voila! it works.

Re: Linux 290x OpenCL ?

I am running Ubuntu 13.10 and for some reason it is not recognizing my R9 290X card. Any idea how to fix this? Have tried many different drivers and it still does not work. Thanks in advance.
