    Installing opencl

    Hi. I would like to install pyOpenCL, but I want to know how do I get an openCL implementation for my linux 64bit system? is there an rpm? or is there a source code which has to be compiled?

    Thank you for your answer!

    The OpenCL API is include on nVidia driver for example.

    Re: Installing opencl

    I see, thank you for your answer. It's just that i make some computer simulations and i thought of openCL as an alternative to MPI and such, so I would like to know when will openCL be available for the general public? (at least on linux)

    @carl.alv : to obtain the linux driver + gpu sdk, you need only a registration and accept the condition of the nvdeveloper community (https://nvdeveloper.nvidia.com/login.asp) . A little precision : OpenCL (or other GPGPU as cuda) are not alternative of MPI, for huge problem, you should use both (GPGPU with MPI).

    @Swedish_Tiger : AMD have also recently publish a beta version of an SDK to use OpenCL : http://developer.amd.com/gpu/ATIStreamS ... fault.aspx

    To save some the jump to AMD's site: AMD's release of Stream SDK 2.0 beta 3 supports OpenCL but does not make use of GPU acceleration. A list of GPUs supporting OpenCL will be released when available. A new release is scheduled every quarter.
