Up and running!

I downloaded from http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/download/ the latest milkyway_separation__modified_fit application

i created this app_info.xml

<app_info>
	<app>
		<name>milkyway_separation__modified_fit</name>
	</app>
	<file_info>
		<name>milkyway_separation__modified_fit_1.36_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu__opencl_ati_101</name>
		<executable />
	</file_info>
	<app_version>
		<app_name>milkyway_separation__modified_fit</app_name>
		<version_num>136</version_num>
		<avg_ncpus>0.040000</avg_ncpus>
		<max_ncpus>0.567833</max_ncpus>
		<plan_class>opencl_ati_101</plan_class>
		<file_ref>
			<file_name>milkyway_separation__modified_fit_1.36_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu__opencl_ati_101</file_name>

		</file_ref>
		<coproc>

Thank you for your quick response.
I'll check the thread and see if it will work for me.

Hello everyone,

Since i switched from CPU to GPU computation ('use CPU' is disabled, 'Use ATI GPU' enabled in MilkyWay@Home preferences) the following message is displayed:

My computer is a openSUSE 13.1 with R9 290 and proprietary drivers (and OpenCL sdk) installed.

Can anyone point me to how i can 'convince' the application that my GPU is OpenCL capable?

On seti@home & POEM@home the GPU is used without problems with the same settings in preferences menu.
