    OpenCL driver freeze on Linux for clCreateCommandQueue




      I try to run my OpenCL code on AMD hardware but the program freezes on boot.

      Here is the following devices on the platform:

      The driver is the one from Debian Jessie (Catalyst 15.9)


      When I create a command queue, the function freezes indefinitely, waiting for a semaphore as shown by the following back trace after halting the program with C-C:


      Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.

      sem_wait () at ../nptl/sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/x86_64/sem_wait.S:85

      85      ../nptl/sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/x86_64/sem_wait.S: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type.

      (gdb) bt

      #5  0x00007ffff2e44299 in clCreateCommandQueue () from /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libamdocl64.so


      It appears when I try running the CL code on the GPU or the CPU.

      Does someone have any ideas on the cause?


      The program has performed the following CL functions:
