Installing Jacket on Mac Mountainlion with x64 Matlab

Postby StefanSicne » Sun Oct 14, 2012 6:01 pm

Hello,

I am using x64 Matlab, and decided to install jacket.
The graphic card I am using on my MacBook Pro is AMD Radeon HD 6750M.

I downloaded Jacket, and copied files to /Application/Jacket. And my problems start after trying to activate Jacket.

Next I run GACTIVATE and here are the messages I receive:

==========
Welcome to Jacket: The GPU Engine for MATLAB!

Verifying Installation ....

Is Jacket gpu_entry.mex file found? .... OK
Is the driver version correct? .... Invalid MEX-file '/Applications/Jacket/engine/getcudrvver.mexmaci64':
dlopen(/Applications/Jacket/engine/getcudrvver.mexmaci64, 1): Library not loaded:
@rpath/CUDA.framework/Versions/A/CUDA
Referenced from: /Applications/Jacket/engine/getcudrvver.mexmaci64
Reason: image not found
==========

I am stuck with this, I am not sure, what it is actually asking me to do. If I understand correctly, it is searching for CUDA drivers, but I don't know why, since I am not using Nvidia GPU. Where am I making mistakes, and how can I finally get Jacket on my machine?

Thanks in advance for help.

StefanSicne,

Thanks for your interest in Jacket. It appears you may have mistakenly downloaded Jacket for NVIDIA devices.

We have two versions of Jacket available for download; Jacket for NVIDIA GPUs works only on NVIDIA CUDA-capable GPUs.
Jacket for OpenCL devices is in beta, and works only on OpenCL-capable devices such as those from AMD and Intel.

Jacket for OpenCL is only for Windows or Linux machines at the moment. All the 3rd-party libraries needed to make Jacket run on mac devices are not available at the moment, and we are currently working on various alternatives.

Hope this helps.
