sorry I'm late, I was totally snowed under last couple of days.
Anyway, I can't seem to find OpenCL compiler. AMD says it's in catalyst now,
but I can't find it there. Anyone got clue as to where the hell it is?

catalyst-test 11.4 and AMD APP SDK 2.4 seem to increase the performance of OpenCL apps by a bit. Please update the PKGBUILD.

>> It fails a call to clGetPlatformIDs().

Here is a quick dirty fix:

sudo ln -s /opt/amdstream/lib/x86_64/ /usr/lib/

Here's a patch for version 2.4:
Note that I can't run an OpenCL code with this new version. It fails a call to clGetPlatformIDs().
This is used to run OpenCL code on the CPU.

After the last pkgrel it seems to find the .so files, however a simple script containing only:
"import pyopencl as cl
ctx = cl.create_some_context()"

crashes with:
"File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pyopencl/", line 314, in create_some_context
platforms = get_platforms()
pyopencl.LogicError: clGetPlatformIDs failed: invalid/unknown error code"

I am also having issues when trying to run C++ applications with CL after this last pkgrel...
Is it working for you? Contact me at <toffyrn at> if this is filling up the comments field.

Ok, updated. I hope it's ok.

toffyrn commented on 2011-03-01 13:44

thx. waiting with a hackish symlink in the meantime :)

kralyk commented on 2011-03-01 13:27

Oh I see, it's the .1 thats missing.
It's f***ed up since AMD ignores the linux concept of shared objects altogether.
I'm gonna remove the ld conf entry, I don't wanna jeopardize glew and glut packages any more.

Stay tuned, will be fixed.

toffyrn commented on 2011-02-28 22:22

This is found:
$ cat /etc/

Try installing python2-pyopencl and run a simple python script containing only "import pyopencl".
When not having symlinked as /lib/ python can not find it...

Perhaps it is a bug in python2-pyopencl package?

kralyk commented on 2011-02-28 17:49

@toffyrn: That is strange, should be in LD path.
Could you please check your /etc/ for 'amdstream.conf' and if it's content is right?
