sorry for late answer.
For sure I will look at it and use it, just somewhere around rc6 - it's my usuall time when I'm preparing patches. Mostly because I don't have much free time and also because the kernel itself is, in most cases, "cristalized" then.

It's nice to hear good words and get precious present!
Thank you and may the Force be with you :)

I made a patchset for compiling the fglrx dkms module against 4.10-rc3 kernel,

It will probably need a bit of pruning to be worthy of being in the repo, primarily the get_user_pages_remote section which may need another if statement specifically for 4.10 instead of just modifying the 4.9 line as I have done. If nothing else this should help get people headed in the right direction.

-- Thank you for all your work on this, your patches / compilation of fixes have helped me tremendously in the past, and I wanted to take this opportunity to try to give back.

catalyst-test provides opencl-catalyst, it should also conflict it

- ocl-icd fixes
- initial 4.9 kernel support, hope i won't brake your system ;P, tested on 4.9-rc8
- _old_control variable for pre-gcn users who have problems with this driver, it brings control file from catalyst 15.9, you can pick it to be included by editing PKGBUILD

i missed opencl-driver because i didn't really used your patch, only red it.
but yesterday I found it independly :) also looking at opencl-nvidia and added it to my local repo. If I will find time I will update today, can't promise because I got some deadline.
About the opencl-icd-loader - I only found ocl-icd implementation, used pacman -sS for that, could miss something. Anyhow will change it.

btw: still can't hear confirmation about imagemagick CPU usage spikes on GNOME, maybe you experienced it?

npfeiler commented on 2016-12-08 14:38

@Vi0L0 the provides for opencl-driver got lost. ocl-icd now optionally depends on it (i added it after finding it in opencl-mesa and opencl-nvidia)
also the comments about opencl-icd-loader really didn’t mean ocl-icd in particular (all (other) opencl-icd-loader implementations provide /usr/lib/ too)
although in the second case it should’ve been lib32-opencl-icd-loader

this is picky on my part, the package works, but i’m wondering why you changed it

interesting - after compiling imagemagick (6.9.6-7 version as 6.9.6-6 is unavailable) with disable-opencl configure option CPU spikes are gone...
I believe it's general problem, not just mine. Can someone confirm CPU usage spikes on default imagemagick @ GNOME?

Vi0L0 commented on 2016-12-06 21:14

thanks npfeiler, I used your patch
I hope it will work fine with non-catalyst libOpenCL - my short testing of running and compiling simple opencl apps showed it's fine.
If you will notice bad behaviour - let me know asap please.

For now I noticed one bug, but it was there before changes: converter (a bin which comes with imagemagick package) is taking a lot of my CPU resources - every seconds its eating 100% CPU, causing spikes on system's monitor ;P. It does look terrible and for now I don't know how to fix it, can somebody confirm bug?

If on upate process installer will tell something about missing libcl, then force install of catalyst-test with pacman -Udd /path-to_catalyst-test, and then additionally install ocl-icd

Within days (maybe tomorrow) I should update repos with this newer non-libcl version of catalyst.

thanks for the headup guys, i will look at it after getting out of my medical treatment, will update propably tomorrow

@npfeiler: Imagemagick is required by CUPS, so I think Violo should fix this clash in the PKGBUILD. I think most Arch installs use CUPS for printing, so this problem literally affects 99% of Arch computers.
