How to get OpenCL working with amdgpu?

Hi there,

I am trying to get opencl working with my amd gpus.

Number of platforms                               0

[defaults] found a 64-bit system with 65716920 kb ram and 64 cores (0 atom based)
[defaults] setting very high quality defaults

0.028315 [opencl_init] FINALLY: opencl is NOT AVAILABLE on this system.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

You need to install ROCm platform. Clear Linux is not supported and you can try to build it from the source.

There’s no guarantee you would succeed and there’s no guides on how to do that in CL. If you have to use opencl, it’s easiest if you install a supported distro.

Thanks for the link!

I don’t have to use OpenCL but I like the challenge of getting things working in CL.
I will post a script/repo if (when) it works.
