    SDK1.2.1 CentOS error

    romron

      I was using SDK 1.2.1, but now whenever I try to run any Brook+ program I get:

      "
      No CAL devices available
      Could not release constant memory.
      Could not free constant memory.
      Could not release constant ring memory.
      Could not free constant ring memory.
      ...
      Could not release constant ring memory.
      Could not free constant ring memory.
      Could not destroy cal context.
      Could not close cal device.
      Unable to initialize CAL runtime, falling back to CPU
      "

      I've the following setups, both with the same problem:
      Radeon HD 4850, Pentium4 3.0GHz, 512 Mb RAM

      I was using CentOS5.1 x64

      streamSDK is amdstream-1.2.1_beta-lnx64

      graficdriver is firestream_8_531_lnx64


      Any ideas?

          Hi there,

          This reply might be a bit too late, but have you tried using the regular catalyst driver as opposed to the firestream one? See the link towards the top of the sdk download page. It's just that it sounds like your graphics driver is not working: have you tried running "glxinfo"? On my system, somewhat similar to yours, I see "direct rendering: yes" and "opengl renderer: ATI Radeon HD 4800 series", using the catalyst 8.9 64-bit linux driver on 64-bit Scientific Linux 5.1, another 5.1 clone.

          Best,
          Steven.
