    changes to development platform

      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?
