Have you installed the released version Catalyst v 9.10 -r eleased on 10/22/09?
As c360 pointed, I am also 100% sure ATI catalyst 9.10 is working in openSuSE 11.1, at least for SDK 1.4. The only problem is that you need to correct some silly C bugs in the SDK examples due to the version of GCC that comes with the distrol which is more strict.
I have a couple of 4870X2 crunching here. Maybe are you talking about SDK 2.0 and latest experimental driver ? What is your GPU card?
Thanks for the replies. I am using the 4850 card. I installed the SKD that was posted on 10/12/2009. This is the 1.4 SDK. The installation instruction claim that the drivers: ati-opencl-beta-driver-v2.0-beta4-lnx.zip (82.3MB) need to be installed. When I installed it, the performance tanked and none of the examples ran... I installed the newest shipping version of the drivers and things are back to normal.
Is the experimental driver required? Things seem to work without it, so I am content to use the production driver...
Unless your application has been created and compiled to run under OpenCL (aka Stream 2.0 beta) I would use Brook+ 1.4 and CAL 1.4 from March 12, 2009. The files are located on http://developer.amd.com/gpu/ATIStreamSDK/Pages/default.aspx
The apps I currently use are not converted yet to Stream 2.0 SDK which is the driver you installed. I suspect that your app has also not be updated to take advantage of the 2.0 SDK and drivers.
