the latest FirePRO driver for Linux 64 bit (13.352.1009) does indeed support OpenSuse 13.1 64 bit.

However, no suitable is installed, only, which does not work linking against OpenCL (just for the sake of it, I created a symbolic link from /usr/lib/ to /usr/lib/ applications as the linker complains (no surprise here):


/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.8/../../../../x86_64-suse-linux/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/ when searching for -lOpenCL

/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.8/../../../../x86_64-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lOpenCL

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status


Executing 'clinfo' correctly lists the W9000 and the AMD CPU of the system (output attached to this post).


I have installed the driver manually according to the guide here [1]. The install log (attached to this post) did not reveal any errors during the installation.


Is there something I have overlooked? Any advice?




Best, Josef
