This is a potential issue. Other users have reported issues with Scientific Linux.
When I try running the resulting binary I get an error.
For example, in samples/cal
./hellocal Supported CAL Runtime Version: 1.3.185 Found CAL Runtime Version: 1.4.553 Use -? for help Segmentation fault
This is because the driver did not get installed properly.
In OpenCL it’s usually Error: clGetPlatformIDs failed. Error code : unknown error code Any thoughts? thanks!
Seems you have missed the ICD registration part.
Thanks, this is helpful but unfortunately does not make it clear for me what needs to be done in order to get FireSream cards working.
The driver installation has not produced any errors and seemed to be successful. It only suggested in the end to run "aticonfig --initial" which I did. That updated xorg.conf
# aticonfig --initial
Found fglrx primary device section
which is probably useless because we want to use FireStream as compute devices only.
Please read the document, ATI_Stream_SDK_Installation_Notes.pdf, for information on how to correctly get setup on linux.
Thank you, MicahVillmow
I've already printed and read it. I'm not sure I can extract more information from it. The list of supported devices states that most of the cards are in beta including 9270. Perhaps that exlains it.
The problem here is your OS, you should be able to use FireStream cards to run OpenCL without any issues, but you can have problem with unsupported OS.
