    Default ATI Stream + pyrit + opencl

    has anyone managed to get ATI Stream + pyrit + opencl working in BT5? And could we get a howto made? I have tried endlessly to get it to work.

    Default Re: ATI Stream + pyrit + opencl

    Getting pyrit + opencl to work with BT5 is actually pretty easy, although I recommend using cal++ (it gets a lot more pmk/s, usually up to double what opencl does) Btw, I'd also use the amd app sdk instead of stream. If you follow my guide at: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...kde-64bit.html you can get ati app sdk + pyrit + cal++ working or if you are set on using the opencl libraries do the following:

    *** NOTE, prepare the kernel sources first before installing ati driver by doing the following: ***
    Open a console window and type:
    Code:
    prepare-kernel-sources
    cd /usr/src/linux
    cp -rf include/generated/* include/linux/
    1) Download the ati driver from the support.amd.com website.
    2) Install the graphics card drivers and reboot.
    3) Download the .deb files for amd app sdk opencl package from:
    If you have 32 bit version of BT5 then download this: http://orwell.fiit.stuba.sk/~nou/amd-app_2.4_i386.deb
    If you have 64 bit version of BT5 then download this: http://orwell.fiit.stuba.sk/~nou/amd-app_2.4_amd64.deb
    Download this file also (for 32 & 64 bit versions): http://orwell.fiit.stuba.sk/~nou/amd-app-dev_2.4.deb
    4) Click on the .deb file (amd-app_2.4_amd64.deb or amd-app_2.4_i386.deb) and a box should open, click on install.
    *** Note you also need to do this for the amd-app-dev_2.4.deb file you downloaded as well ***
    5) Download pyrit from the svn.
    6) Open a console, go into the pyrit folder and run:
    Code:
    python setup.py build install
    7) Go into the cpyrit_opencl folder and run:
    Code:
    python setup.py build install
    8) Confirm that pyrit and opencl are working for you type:
    Code:
    pyrit list_cores
    You may need to first download and install the python dev tools (should be something like
    Code:
    apt-get python-dev
    .

    This should get ati amd app + pyrit + opencl working for you, refer to my guide if you want to use cal++.

    Thanks this worked great!
    just wanted to add, the last line should be

    "apt-get install python-dev"
