I have installed CUDA Toolkit 5.0 and nvidia-experimental-310 drivers. CUDA examples works fine with optirun but every OpenCL app fails to run with error calling clGetPlatformIDs function. I've tried examples from NVIDIA OpenCL SDK and also examples from PyOpenCL which I compiled from source and also using pip, nothing works. Why it's not working?


I finally managed to get it work after creating /etc/OpenCL/vendors/nvidia.icd file and libnvidia-opencl.so.1 inside. I also switched back to nvidia-current driver before but I'm sure it still would work with experimental ones. I found a solution here.

  • Thank you for that, very helpful in getting my OpenCL running. – Jason Champion Aug 31 '13 at 9:05
