clCreateImage2D "Unimplemented"?

Don't know how to load an image using OpenCL


I'm just trying to load an image using clCreateImage2D but I keep getting the following error when I call this function:

/home/ayouhas/opencl/opencl/runtime/src/api/cl_memobj.cpp:585: Unimplemented()


The directory above, "ayouhas", doesn't even actually exist on my system (Ubuntu 9.04), which makes it even more confusing.

I know the image is there because I can load it using the OpenCV library.

It would be great if someone could inspect the attached code sample and provide any suggestions to help me get this working.



cl_int status = 0; cl_int error; cl_context context = clCreateContextFromType(0, CL_DEVICE_TYPE_DEFAULT, NULL, NULL, &status); void* image = fopen("test_image.bmp","rb"); size_t width = //ASSIGN WIDTH HERE size_t height = //ASSIGN HEIGHT HERE size_t rowpitch = 0; cl_image_format format; format.image_channel_order = CL_RGBA; format.image_channel_data_type = CL_UNSIGNED_INT8; cl_mem_flags flags; flags = CL_MEM_READ_ONLY | CL_MEM_USE_HOST_PTR; cl_mem myClImage = clCreateImage2D( context, // a valid OpenCL context flags, // option flags [1] &format, // image format properties [2] width, // width of the image in pixels height, // height of the image in pixels rowpitch, // scan-line pitch in bytes [3] image, // pointer to the image data &error // on return, the result code );
