I am trying to use the CodeBuilder for Eclipse Neon on ubuntu 16.04.3.
I have installed the driver and kernel patch (not sure if it is really required though) and I can compile opencl kernels and programs. However I would like to use the SDK tools for eclipse. When I install the intel_sdk_for_opencl_2017_184.108.40.206.11_x64 sdk for eclipse and put the plugin in the dropins folder. I get the new toolbars etc but it complains of being unable to find machine or device etc. such as:
"Failed to update machine list:
Could not load required libraries; please make sure to set the correct path under the Code Builder for OpenCL preference page"
and similar errors for platforms and devices.
I have the paths pointing to:
OpenCL Bin Directory: /opt/intel/opencl/SDK/bin
OpenCL Lib Directory: /opt/intel/opencl/SDK/lib64
in the eclipse preferences/CodeBuilder for OpenCL menu dialog.
I noticed that there are .dll and .exe files included in the linux install folders which is odd as they also prevent me from using them directly in a standalone command line fashion.
Is there something wrong with the distribution? or do I need to do something to get this to work.
cheers and thanks in advance.
