OpenCL on ArchLinuxARM

Unread post by myd » Fri Apr 12, 2019 2:33 am

Hi, I am trying to get OpenCL working under Arch, I have used hardkernel kernel from here:

https://github.com/hardkernel/linux/arc ... 356.tar.gz

Mali Bifrost kernel module from here:

https://developer.arm.com/tools-and-sof ... ost-kernel

and Mali userspace binary from this package:

http://deb.odroid.in/n2/pool/main/m/mal ... _arm64.deb

I got the clinfo working, but there seems to be some issue causing "Max compute units" to be 2 and "Max clock frequency" to be 5MHz, I did not do much more testing yet, but wanted to ask if someone else got the same result and what could be causing it, does anyone know?

Also I am a noob so its entirely possible that I missed something obvious.

this is my clinfo output:

Looks like something is really wrong with my setup, everything seems to be working fine until the point when I try to execute any kernel, then the program always hangs and never continues past that point. I will try to investigate this problem some more.

We've never tried the ALARM OS on N2.
Can you tell me the current Kernel version?

I originally used kernel from "odrodn2-4.9.y" branch with latest commit 9a4a1f4b14fe66d7ebd73323b39fbf3bda9e1356, it did not include the mali kernel module so I took that from the second link in my original post.

I saw that there were some changes on that branch since, so I built kernel today with the latest version of that branch and it suddenly fixed all my issues, the OpenCL programs now work correctly, even clinfo gives me better results

  ICD loader Vendor                               OCL Icd free software

So my guess is that I originally made some mistake when building the mali kernel module and that caused all of my problems. Now everything is fine and OpenCL works correctly, thanks.
