Hi,

since the instructions for poclbm seem to work only for NVidia, I wonder if anybody has instructions for ATI cards?

I think I successfully installed the driver from ATI, rather than the ones that come with Ubuntu. I tried Stream API 2.2, but I only had installation instructions for 2.3. Basically all there is to do (for 2.3) is to unzip the sdk into some dir and point a couple of environment variables to it. I did that (putting the environment stuff into .bashrc for lack of knowing better), but if I try to run an example (like "CLinfo") I get

Quote
samples/opencl/bin/x86_64/CLInfo: error while loading shared libraries: libOpenCL.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Not even sure if that is relevant.

So now how do I get pyopencl? I found these instructions for an older version of Ubuntu, but I don't think they can be correct, as for example I don't  have an ati-strem-sdk dir below /etc

Edit: I just followed instructions from this blog and added values for LIBRARY_PATH and C_INCLUDE_PATH to .bashrc. Now CLInfo runs - somehow the instructions for stream sdk 2.3 didn't mention these two.

Any pointers?

Thanks!


Björn

Either incorrectly installed SDK or unset or incorrectly set LD_LIBRARY_PATH. See, the tutorial I've just written:

I was getting that when I didn't specify the LIBRARY PATH. Just double check it for typos.

Thanks, just found your tutorial and it worked for the most part. Only I am not yet seeing the performance I expected, but at least the miner runs.
