AMD APP SDK 2.8 runtime installation bug?

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"

  __kernel  __attribute__((vec_type_hint(double)))

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?

 

Thanks,

Evren
