ACML 6.1 SGEMM and DGEMM bug in example code

Please move this to AMD Compute Library forum after it's been approved.


I'm running ACML compiled by gfortran for 64 bit Linux (available here: acml- )


Running the time_sgemm or time_dgemm example code with either acml or acml_mp causes the process to hang with 0 CPU usage.

I ran the program under GDB and pressed ctrl-C after it had been hung for a while to see where it was hanging.


Starting program: /home/emartin/.local/lib/acml-6.1/gfortran64/examples/performance/time_sgemm.exe

[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]

Using host libthread_db library "/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/".


Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.

Looks like it happens in __cxa_guard_acquire and has something to do with the Lua interop. The behavior was the same for all 4 example codes (sgemm/dgemm and acml/acml_mp).


This error occurred running Ubuntu 15.04 with kernel release 3.19.0-15-generic. My CPU is a Intel Core i5-5200U CPU with integrated Intel HD 5500 graphics. I'm running beignet 1.0.2 for openCL support. I can provide any other output if it helps with debugging, such as /proc/cpuinfo or clinfo (even though it looks like the bug happens outside of openCL, which is why I'm filing against ACML and not clBLAS).
