    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?
