Will AMD make official OpenCL packages for next Ubuntu/ other distros releases?

Trouble getting it to work.

Hello,

 

I'm experiencing severe problems with ATI Stream SDK on Ubuntu. I've installed it many time, tried many instructions and as of now a large part of Stream SDK samples just don't work.

 

I suspect that nVidia proprietary drivers in Ubuntu Maverick are bundled with OpenCL support, unlike ATI drivers. Currently, installing ATI Stream SDK and getting it to work is a PITA sometimes. It should be easy for end users.

 

I hope that AMD will bundle OpenCL driver with all incoming Catalyst drivers.

 

What do you think?
