build rosetta3 with gpu support failed

I tried to install rosetta3 with gpu support with the follow command: 

 sudo ./ -j 20 mode=release bin extras=opencl

but failed with the follow error message:

scons: *** [build/src/release/linux/3.10/64/x86/gcc/4.8/opencl/protocols/hotspot_hashing/SurfaceSearchPattern.os] Error 1
scons: building terminated because of errors.

My system is centos7 implemented with 2 c2050 gpu, and cuda-8.0 has been installed in the system. Why does the error occurs? Is there some way to solve this problem?

The number of developers who use GPU Rosetta is in the single digits, and the number of outside users is also small.  The GPU compile is not tested with any regularity.


One answer to your question: unless you know from the literature / documentation that you are trying to access one of the tiny, tiny slices of Rosetta code that uses GPU support - don't waste your time.  Almost nothing has GPU support. If you can tell me which bit of GPU-enabled code you are trying to use I can put you in contact with the maintainer (if there still is one) to figure out the compiler issues.


A second answer to your question: you haven't included the compiler error so we can't really diagnose it.  Run scons at -j1 so that the log file is more interpretable and post the error message itself and we might be able to spot it.
