clGetDeviceIDs() API with GPU argument,numDevices is showing 0

Question asked by kvraju on Dec 18, 2013

Hi All,


i am trying to run opencl example on my laptop(it has AMD radeon 8670 graphics card) with opensuse 12.3.

i have installed catalyst 13.11 beta version and ADM_APPSDK_v2.9 .


snippet code:




status = clGetDeviceIDs(platform, CL_DEVICE_TYPE_GPU, 0, NULL, &numDevices);




as for my understanding from the above snippet code if the GPU is available then "numDevices" should show the count of the GPU's present in my laptop.


if i run application as user space

numDevices is showing '0'


if i run same application as root user

numDevices is showing '1'



is there any issue with the installation of the graphic driver ?


Could you please help me on this issue.
