On Windows and MacOS the installation should work right away in case the computer has a built-in Intel HD or AMD Ryzen GPU. In case dedicated AMD or NVidia GPUs are used, special drivers might have to be installed. Search for more information about drivers on the websites of the GPU vendors.
In case of processing large images and/or working with large kernels, errors may pop up when using NVidia or AMD graphics cards on Windows. The issue is related to a timeout of the operating system interrupting processing on the GPU. Add the following entries keys to the windows registry and restart the computer:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers] "TdrDelay"=dword:0000003c "TdrDdiDelay"=dword:0000003c
Be really careful when doing this. Don’t do it, if you’re not aware what that means. Ask you IT department for support. Read the BSD3 license file for details on why we’re not responsible for your actions on your computer. More technical background information:
Linux users need to install drivers for OpenCL, even on Intel HD GPUs. Depending on which linux being used, you need to install OpenCL Installable Client Driver (OCL-ICD):
sudo apt-get install intel-opencl-icd
sudo apt-get install nvidia-opencl-dev
sudo apt-get install ocl-icd-devel
sudo apt-get install nvidia-legacy-340xx-opencl-icd
sudo apt-get install ocl-icd-opencl-dev
sudo apt-get install ocl-icd-libopencl1
For debugging if the GPU is identified correctly, also
clinfo is recommended:
sudo apt-get install clinfo clinfo
