Where to find AMD APP SDK 3.0 for Linux?

On this discussion

Why has the AMD OpenCL SDK download page  disappeared certainly?

I found only the links for Windows version and the original page result in 404 error, so where can I find the AMD APP SDK 3.0 for Linux?

APPSDK download page still seems to be broken. I'm checking with the concerned team.

As a workaround, you can download a temporary copy of APPSDK installer from here: AMD-APP-SDKInstaller-v3.0.130.136-GA-linux64.tar.bz2  [ Dropbox - APP SDK ].

As I've been informed, the concerned team has decided to drop the support for APP SDK and hence, any related package on developer central  might not be accessible anymore.

With AMDGPU-Pro and ROCm drivers, you don't need a separate SDK because required libraries are shipped with the driver itself. And the headers to compile can be found with the package manager. For example on Debian based distro:

sudo apt-get install opencl-headers

Adding to dipak, I found this page very useful:

Radeon Software for Linux Installation

Basically you now need only the driver (I suggest you install it with secure boot off),

when installing use the flag if

With Vega10 or newer:

-y --opencl=pal

With GPUs older than Vega10:

-y --opencl=legacy

Then you should be able to find your platform as AMD GPUs with clinfo.
