/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lopencl
Currently trying to compile a simple program given in OpenCL from this website. It will give me the required
DeviceInfo that I need. After simply invoking a
make , I get the error below:
sharan@sharan-X550CC:~/opencl-ex/Ex1$ make g++ DeviceInfo.cpp -I ../../Cpp_common -lOpenCL -o DeviceInfo /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lOpenCL collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status Makefile:23: recipe for target 'DeviceInfo' failed make: *** [DeviceInfo] Error 1
Now I have installed using the instructions from this website. I still get the error above
What's the fix for this error?
You linker can't find the
You should help the linker to find the
Similar issue was raised here
There was a solution to create a link for the library to a known lib location
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libOpenCL.so.1 /usr/lib/libOpenCL.so
OpenCL library located in
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ you can also add the library folder to the Libraries path.
You might need to update the dynamic linker
