- Will add opencl-headers to provides section with next update (coming later today)
- @kralyk, as @mmozeiko mentioned, you should install intel-opencl-runtime, which will serve as CL backend - it will register the IDC during installation.

mmozeiko commented on 2016-04-26 17:51

Yes, having opencl-headers in "provides" is much better option!

@kralyk: Should intel-opencl-sdk should provide CL backend? My understanding is that it is SDK, for development. Backend is in intel-opencl-runtime package.

@ava1ar @kralyk
As an alternative, opencl-headers could be added to the provides section, then the dependencies wouldn't break.

Sorry, typo:

the header files should _NOT_ have been put into /usr/include

kralyk commented on 2016-04-26 08:20

@ava1ar @misc

IMO the header files should have been put into /usr/include, there should be no conflict. Packages depending on OpenCL depend on opencl-headers, not intel-opencl-sdk directly.

Also, @ava1ar, why did you remove the ICD registration? How are programs supposed to load intel-opencl-sdk backend?

mmozeiko commented on 2016-04-26 02:45

The latest update (2016-2) now is in conflict with beignet:
:: intel-opencl-sdk and beignet are in conflict (opencl-headers). Remove beignet? [y/N]

How to have intel-opencl-sdk installed in parallel with beignet? Without beignet I don't have GPU OpenCL acceleration. With 2016-1 package installed I can have beignet installed and I can use both - GPU and CPU for OpenCL.

Thanks for report. I update the PKGBUILD, however, since opencl-headers also install headers to the /usr/include, I added opencl-headers to conflics section.

misc commented on 2016-04-25 17:02

The headers need to find their way into /usr/include (like beignet does), not /opt/intel/opencl-sdk/include, or otherwise sources relying on the standard paths fail to compile.

Hi, a took the ownership over the package and updated to the latest version. I cleaned up PKGBUILD and revisited all dependencies.
Since I am mostly interested in runtime, active users of SDK - please report any issues, related to package and PKGBUILD. Thanks.

Thank you @satriani. Did anyone try to run the PKGBUILD on the new CentOS tarball? Maybe we're lucky and and it just works?
