Installation

Installing grudge

This set of instructions is intended for 64-bit Linux computers. MacOS support is in the works.

  1. Make sure your system has the basics to build software.

    On Debian derivatives (Ubuntu and many more), installing build-essential should do the trick.

    Everywhere else, just making sure you have the g++ package should be enough.

  2. Installing miniconda for Python 3 on 64-bit Linux.

  3. export CONDA=/WHERE/YOU/INSTALLED/miniconda3

    If you accepted the default location, this should work:

    export CONDA=$HOME/miniconda3

  4. $CONDA/bin/conda create -n dgfem

  5. source $CONDA/bin/activate dgfem

  6. conda config --add channels conda-forge

  7. conda install git pip pocl islpy pyopencl

  8. Type the following command:

    hash -r; for i in pymbolic cgen genpy modepy pyvisfile loopy meshmode dagrt leap grudge; do python -m pip install git+https://gitlab.tiker.net/inducer/$i.git; done
    

Next time you want to use grudge, just run the following command:

source /WHERE/YOU/INSTALLED/miniconda3/bin/activate dgfem

You may also like to add this to a startup file (like $HOME/.bashrc) or create an alias for it.

After this, you should be able to run the tests or examples.

Troubleshooting the Installation

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lstdc++

Try:

sudo apt-get install libstdc++-6-dev

to install the missing C++ development package.

No CL platforms found/unknown error -1001

If you get:

pyopencl.cffi_cl.LogicError: clGetPlatformIDs failed: <unknown error -1001>

try:

conda update ocl-icd pocl

(This indicates that the OpenCL driver loader didn’t find any drivers, or the drivers were themselves missing dependencies.)

Assertion ‘error == 0’

If you get:

/opt/conda/conda-bld/home_1484016200338/work/pocl-0.13/lib/CL/devices/common.c:108:
llvm_codegen: Assertion 'error == 0 ' failed. Aborted (core dumped)

then you’re likely out of memory.
