Installing APP SDK 3.0 on Xubuntu 14.10

Hi peeps,


I'm trying to get OpenCL to work on Xubuntu 14.10. I installed the AMD APP SDK 3.0 as per the instructions here. I can see the environment variables have been set correctly and I did log out and back in after.

So, when I try to run clinfo, I get this:


clinfo: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ no version information available (required by clinfo)
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'cl::Error'
  what():  clGetPlatformIDs


I do not have the Catalyst driver installed as I don't have an AMD GPU. I'd like to run the code on the Athlon64 I have instead. I have another similar setup using an Intel CPU with HD graphics, and the APP SDK 2.9 works as intended.


Would any of you have a hint for me on what's missing to make it work?
