Hello,

Does any one have experience in getting a nuc8i7 GPU to work on a ubuntu 18.04?

Particularly supporting the opencl library

Thanks

Have you tried deb packages from our weekly releases: https://github.com/intel/compute-runtime/releases?

Hi PatrickB,

  • Are you encountering issues deploying the runtime or are you trying to deploy developer tools for an OpenCL™ application?
    • If you have any specific errors or questions please add them to this thread.
  • The link from JacekD has an install walkthrough for Intel® Graphics Compute Runtime for OpenCL™ Applications on an Ubuntu system.
    • To clarify OpenCL™ runtime options please take a look at this article.
  • Ubuntu 18.04 is deployed with a kernel newer than 4.11. Since that kernel the default i915 kernel module supports recent Intel® Graphics on Intel® Core™ i7 processors in NUC systems. So... applying runtimes per the github link should be enough to execute applications.
  • For a developer setup walkthrough:
  • I run on a Broadwell based NUC regularly.

Thanks,
