    quantal quetzal driver and opencl setup

    omac

      Hi there,

       

      I made the mistake of upgrading from Precise Pangolin to Quantal Quetzal thinking the drivers/opencl would work without issue.

      I just found these links which might be helpful for others:

      I have an opencl issue:

      uname -a

      reports:

      3.5.0-17-generic #28-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 9 19:31:23 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

       

      fglrxinfo

      reports:

      display:   screen: 0

      OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.

      OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series

      OpenGL version string: 4.2.11903 Compatibility Profile Context

       

      Then, when I do:

      /opt/AMDAPP

      make

       

      I get the following error:

      SDKCommon.cpp: In member function ‘std::string streamsdk::SDKCommon::getPath()’:

      SDKCommon.cpp:41:67: error: ‘readlink’ was not declared in this scope

      make[3]: *** [build/debug/x86_64//SDKCommon.o] Error 1
