IMHO it is possible to compile Rusticl manually for Leap.

Where is the discussion of who needs or should want it, or why?

A very late bump, but what would this do, exactly? I installed it and added the following to my .bashrc:

export OCL_ICD_VENDORS=rusticl.icd
export RUSTICL_ENABLE=radeonsi

I couldn’t notice any performance increase or anything like that. Which applications benefit from this?

I would assume blender will benefit from this… :grinning:

Those apps that can use OpenCL: Darktable for instance.

No, Blender drops OpenCL since 3.0.
Blender devs loves CUDA from Nvidia.
