compartmentalized sdk

ATI/AMD engineers...

 

Can you repackage the (linux specifically) ati-driver and stream sdk to achieve this:

 

 -- no requirement for hardware to be attached to a running display

 

 -- stream (opencl) components independent of opengl pipeline

 

This would allow easier deployment of large scale gpgpu solutions.

 

Use case in action:

 

  install pcie card (no display attached)

  install driver (kernel  module built and loaded, persistent /dev/ entries created)

  install opencl and stream related headers/libraries

  optionally install opengl headers and runtime libraries

 

why can this not be done?
