No GPU compatible with OpenCL found

Hi everybody!

I’m a new user of OpenCL. To learn to use OpenCL I took a computer (that I found in my office) with a GPU that should be compatible…
When I’m using windows it’s written “AMD Radeon HD 5450” (compatible with OpenCL, you can find it easily on google, but I cannot put a URL because I’m a new user…)

However, when I’m using linux it’s written “Gallium 0.4 on AMD CEDAR”…

Hence my problem is when I’m trying to use OpenCL with linux I can use only a CL_DEVICE_TYPE_CPU whereas on windows I can use CL_DEVICE_TYPE_GPU

I think I have a problem of setup of my GPU card but I don’t know how to solve it…

Thank you for your help


I believe Gallium is an open-source driver that might as well not implement GPU OpenCL yet. You may try installing proprietary driver.

It’s what I did and it works, thank you.
