Re: Linux 290x OpenCL ?

Hi tuck, I got this working 2 weeks ago with Ubuntu 13.10.  I used the instructions here:

Ubuntu Saucy Installation Guide - cchtml.com

and installed the Beta version from the options.  This was from a clean install of ubuntu 13.10, *without* getting any proprietary drivers during install.

typing eg 'clinfo' in a terminal shows me (among other things):

  Platform Name:                                 AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing
Number of devices:                               2
  Device Type:                                   CL_DEVICE_TYPE_GPU
  Device ID:                                     4098
  Board name:                                    AMD Radeon R9 200 Series
  Device Topology:                               PCI[ B#1, D#0, F#0 ]

NOTE: most of the discussion here is how to get AMD's SDK to work, given that it messes up paths etc during install. Your question/problem is simpler than that.

Re: Linux 290x OpenCL ?

I am using the following drivers and they work fine:

I guess the question boils down to exactly what you are doing to install the drivers and exactly what you are doing to check if they are working or not?

Re: Linux 290x OpenCL ?

the fault is of the script Install-AMD-APP.sh, in file default-install_lnx_64.pl there is a wrong path:

line 180:

$Cat_OCL_RT_files = '/usr/lib/libamdocl64.so';

change in;

$Cat_OCL_RT_files = '/usr/lib/fglrx/libamdocl64.so';

and everything will be fine.
