Kernel module OpenCL Hikey970


#1

I started to use Hikey970 recently, so I’m jsut a beginner for such as things.
I have simple question for OpenCL, when I run clinfo, the kernel driver seems not loaded.
I used the image “LeMaker Debian (Lebian)” downloaded below link.

Probably we can compile the kernel with the configuration that enables it, and it could work by replacing the kernel with the one but I’ve never tried and don’t have enough knowledge about it neither.
Is there any one did it??
Also If you know some reference doing similar, please tell me.
