Change Proposal Name OpenCL

Summary

This change will bring basic OpenCL support to Fedora to support the development of OpenCL enabled software and the development of OpenCL implementations itself.. This will include enabling Mesa's OpenCL state-tracker (in 9.3), packaging pocl - an CPU only OpenCL implementation - and the introduction of several other OpenCL related packages.

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 21
  • Last updated: 2013-09-23
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

The change is intended to give developers a starting point to be able to use OpenCL and to improve existing OpenCL implementations.

The change will include the following sub changes:

  • Update existing packages if needed
    • gegl (to be investigated)
    • ocl-icd (done)
  • Potential projects to be packaged:
    • Package khronos icd - probably not
    • Package radeontop - To monitor a Radeon GPU (which supports OpenCL)
    • Package piglit - This will be a testuite for the OpenCL implementations
  • Other stuff:
    • Add a new group to comps or a opencl-dev package?
    • Add virtual provides to the opencl implementations - So a app requireing opencl just needs to require the virtual package (so any provider)
    • Version opencl-headers

Benefit to Fedora

Developers will have an easier start to develop OpenCL based software on Fedora. Furthermore this shall be seen as a step o bring OpenCL based software to Linux in general.
