Trying to install OpenCl Driver open mac

Hi all, 

I am trying to install the OpenCL driver on my macbook pro, which has an Intel HD 4000 GPU. I searched around for a while, and finally found the Intel INDE development package, which I downloaded and tried to install, but got this error:

Error while executing the startup script. Make sure that you have write permissions to /Users/Shared/Library/Application Support/Intel/Licenses folder.

However, I checked and this folder does not exist. 

Two questions: How do I resolve this error? and is there a simpler way to just get the OpenCL driver?

 

Thanks!!

Mike,

Couple of questions:

1. What Operating System are you running on the MacBook Pro? If it is OS X, it comes preinstalled with an OpenCL driver. Intel does not provide the driver for Mac, Apple does. If you think you are missing an OpenCL driver on your Mac, please contact Apple Developer Forum.

2. You might try to create /Users/Shared/Library/Application Support/Intel/Licenses directory yourself and give it 777 permissions to circumvent the issue that you are reporting.

I am running osx Mavericks, so it should come with OpenCL installed. But when I run "clinfo", it returnes a command not found, and a program that is supposed to use it cannot, so I don't think its there. 

I resolved the issue by doing what you said, the installer worked and all, but "clinfo" still returns nothing.

Mike,

You might want to grab clinfo code from here: https://github.com/simleb/clinfo and build it yourself.

And here is another alternative that looks to be actively supported: https://github.com/Oblomov/clinfo
