I downloaded the 1.2 SDK and installed it (after un-installing 1.1). I'm using Catalyst 8.8 + openSuSE 10.2 + Radeon 3870 + Core2 QuadCore. I sourced the following:
Built simple_matmult and ran it. The computer froze (i.e., hung). I rebooted and tried hello_brook - that worked.
Is there something/anything I failed to do???
PS> I just noticed this in amd-cal-install-linux64.txt: "This version of CAL SDK uses the Catalyst 8.7 driver." I thought that SDK 1.2 was targeting Catalyst 8.8?
Nik, did you stick with Catalyst 8.8 with the 4870? Or did you try Catalyst 8.7 as is indicated in amd-cal-install-linux64.txt?
One other question: if I swap out the 3870 for the 4870 do I need to un-install Catalyst and CAL and BROOK - then re-install them?
simple_matmult sample in the latest CAL and Brook seems to work fine for me. I am using RHEL 5.1 64bit using HD3870 and Driver version 8.8. I am not really sure what the problem.
I had a EUREKA moment. I finally got the right combination of video card (Radeon 4870) + driver (Catalyst 8.8) + SDK (1.2) + some minor tweaking to work together.
