I am receiving a segmentation fault when I try to run the samples provided with the APP SDK.


I ran HelloCL with gdb and found this error:


1538        cl_int err = ::clGetPlatformIDs(0, NULL, &n);

(gdb) step


Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

0x00007ffff7555103 in ?? () from /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/


brian@newton:~/etc/OpenCL/vendors$ fglrxinfo

display: 0  screen: 0

OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.

OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series

OpenGL version string: 4.2.11399 Compatibility Profile Context


I have tried running these samples after installing from the source .tar provided on the AMD site and also by installing amd-libopencl1 from the Debian non-free package archive. Both have provided the same results.


Please help!
