I realized that if Catalyst drivers are installed, then the OpenCL runtime files such as libamdocl64.so do not get installed. Strangely the driver version stays old version supplied by catalyst...
|Version:||OpenCL 1.2 AMD-APP (1084.4)|
On a different box with catalyst, even older version (although both boxes should have Catalyst 13.1)
|Version:||OpenCL 1.2 AMD-APP (1016.4)|
Only on a box with no AMD GPU, the installation puts the latest version:
|Version:||OpenCL 1.2 AMD-APP (1113.2)|
and old versions seem to print errors such as
"/tmp/OCLf0b38e.cl", line 6: warning: unknown attribute "vec_type_hint"
while new version does not.
Can you tell if this also effects performance perhaps or not ?
I already had a case where a program was frozen when used with new include files but old driver (I dont know if this was the reason but now I have suspicions and will try to test this tomorrow).
Is this a bug in the APP SDK installer?
