Problem happens only when used with binary kernel image compiled for the same device. Building from kernel sources works fine.

My program uses the from your samples. Binary image was saved and loaded using your code in CLUtils.cpp,

however, converted to C.


Running it through the debugger, gdb, shows:




setupCL () at dsp.c:252

252        fft_kernel = clCreateKernel(prog, "fft", &err);
