Can't install OpenCL driver for Intel HD Graphics 620 from a Gen7 (Kaby Lake) processor

Hello.

 

I'm having some trouble running OpenCL on my system. My clinfo and other OpenCL applications I have say that an OpenCL context could not be created (error code -2).

 

I've followed this excellent article (https://github.com/bashbaug/OpenCLPapers/blob/master/OpenCLOnLinux.asciidoc) and was able to see that my system has a working libOpenCL.so and that it has a readable .icd file.

 

I had a previous working installation of OpenCL, and my .icd file is pointing to a file that doesn't exists (/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/intel-opencl/libigdrcl.so). I've assumed that the pointed file was a driver file the was missing, so I downloaded the file given in https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/articles/legacy-opencl-drivers.html#latest_linu...

 

By installing the file mentioned above I got the directory /opt/intel/opencl which has a libigdrcl.so file. I wrote another .icd pointing to this new file but clinfo still tells me it was impossible to create an OpenCL context.

 

Does anyone know whats is going on? The problem is with the driver? Where can I get correct Linux drivers for my specific hardware?

 

P.S.: here is the output of clinfo:

Hi, if you're using a Linux distribution that can use .deb install packages can you try downloading and installing the latest compute-runtime release?

https://github.com/intel/compute-runtime/releases/latest

These packages are much more up-to-date than the packages on the link above and will support your Kaby Lake GPU.

With your current install, I suspect some of the required dependencies are missing (e.g. the GPU compiler) and this is why clinfo is only enumerating a CPU OpenCL device.  Please be sure to download all of the installation packages and install them as described in the "Installation procedure".

If this still doesn't work, or if you cannot install from .deb packages, can you please include a bit more information about your system, such as which distro you are using?  Thanks!
