Hey, looks like with the 12.9 beta AMD finally did it!

 

I am able to run OpenCL applications without running X server!

 

Just some issues I have now with ADL:

 

* fan speed cannot be set without running X server (temperatures can be obtained though)

* device strings cannot be obtained using ADL without X

 

Are there any plans to document that GPU rings feature?

 

Also COMPUTE variable is not working anymore and since without X obviously DISPLAY cannot be used too, there is no way to control that (currently).
