As far as I know my machines remain clean.

I did notice that the binary was not code-signed. I'll create a new wrapper and code-sign it.

Could you all install this as well:
ocl-icd-libopencl1

It should install libopencl.so which is required to run/detect OpenCL functionality.
33) Message boards : BOINC client : Creating 32-bit BOINC Installer in Inno Setup (Message 53507)
Posted 3 Apr 2014 by Rom Walton
Post:
It sounds as though your installer needs to setup two registry values:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Space Sciences Laboratory, U.C. Berkeley\BOINC Setup]
"INSTALLDIR"="C:\\Program Files\\BOINC\\"
"DATADIR"="C:\\ProgramData\\BOINC\\"


DATADIR needs to point to a place that the installing user can read/write to/from.

Except that it is part of the OpenCL specification:
http://www.khronos.org/registry/cl/specs/opencl-1.2-extensions.pdf

Page 138.

That is how the designers of OpenCL envisioned the system to work.

I would try installing the amd-opencl-icd package and verify that the amdocl64.icd is in /etc/OpenCL/vendors directory.

I would make a backup copy of the existing libOpenCL.so.1 file to revert things back to if installing ocl-icd-libopencl1 causes things to go wonky. Then I would install ocl-icd-libopencl1.

Restart BOINC and see what happens.

If I understand what is supposed to be happening correctly...

ocl-icd-libopencl1 contains libopencl.so, while amd-opencl-icd/nvidia-opencl-icd contain the ICDs.

So instead of having a vendor specific implementation of libOpenCL.so they have a neutral version that loads the specific vendor's ICD at runtime. Like what happens on Windows/Mac.

Both amd-opencl-icd and nvidia-opencl-icd drop an icd file in /etc/OpenCL/vendors/ which libOpenCL.so uses.

Cirrussc,

What does the core client report when running through the OpenCL detection phase?

Running clinfo implies that you have a functioning OpenCL driver and it is supported.

So, as near as I can tell, it should be supported right now under BOINC.

Message:
client & MGR: Make writing trace statements to the debugger viewport something you have to opt into on Windows.

I use it a lot, but other developers using BOINC may not care to see BOINC messages while debugging their own stuff.
