Version 2.6.0 is out

@steinbuch Looks like this function was added in rocr-runtime 2.4.0, do you have that up to date?

Very recently I'm getting a build failure:

Thanks for pointing out the broken symlink, should be fixed now.

As for what rocblas and other tools expect, I'm really conflicted. I don't have access to the scripts Radeon folks use to package official releases. I am mostly just building out default or sensible paths encoded in CMake which don't always align with official packages. It would take a lot of effort to compare AUR packages against and make sure that every file is located in the same place. It's probably the best solution we have, but I don't have time right now to go over everything.

There are also things that are not packaged (yet), like legacy CodeXLAnalyzer libs for profiling. Even though it's deprecated, it's dynamically linked by tensorflow-upstream (tensorflow-rocm on pypi).

PKGBUILD needs to be patched

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index 153e9d9..fb48daf 100644
@@ -37,7 +37,7 @@ package() {
   mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/bin"

+    ln -s /opt/rocm/hcc/bin/$fn "$pkgdir/usr/bin/$fn"

   # additional link to make hcc demos happy

Beyond that the files may need to be properly symlinked to /opt/rocm/bin/hcc and /opt/rocm/bin/hcc-config which is a path expected by many other tools. Optionally setting TENSILE_ROCM_ASSEMBLER_PATH="/opt/rocm/hcc/bin/" environment variable can be used to workaroudn the issue. By default rocblas expects /opt/rocm/bin/

@farnoy I think what @rigred meant is that the symlinks are broken:


/usr/bin/hcc -> /opt/rocm/bin/hcc
/usr/bin/hcc-config -> /opt/rocm/bin/hcc-config

Should be:

/usr/bin/hcc -> /opt/rocm/hcc/bin/hcc
/usr/bin/hcc-config -> /opt/rocm/hcc/bin/hcc-config

farnoy commented on 2019-01-02 11:43

@rigred I symlinked these two to have them in PATH, other ROCm projects just expect to find it there. Another solution could be to modify the PATH system-wide, but I'm not sure that's the best way.

rigred commented on 2018-12-28 13:25

There seems to be a symlink problem /usr/bin/hcc and /usr/bin/hcc-config are symlinked to /opt/rocm/bin/hcc

But the hcc files are actually located in /opt/rocm/hcc/bin

These are probably not the only files - there are likely more like that

difron commented on 2017-09-25 16:05

Probably. I built hcc on clean instal of Arch. Maybe if some version of llvm/clang is installed compilation proceeds fine. There is some setting in clang which tells it to ignore -fno-plt. I didn't investigate it deeper though.

leidola commented on 2017-09-24 18:41

Not sure why you get this problem. I just successfully rebuilt the package on my machine. Maybe we're missing a dependency?
