Thanks, worked well. No compiler needed.
Your pyopencl runs well with python on windows 8. :) Great work.
Yesterday, I tried to install cygwin on windows 8 (amd64).
Today, everything (python27 etc) runs well on cygwin.
Ok, but I have another problem:
As read on http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/
the offered compiled libs do
support cygwin. Well, they worked with main python from python.org
very well, as already
I tried to install the binaries of pyopencl and its dependencies, but the installer
forced me to install everything to directory c:\python27 where the main windows python 2.7
is installed. So, I extracted all the files from the setup files and copied it to
c:\cygwin\usr\lib\python2.7\site-packages\ . Scipy, decorator, numpy, and pytools are
Now, running python in cygwin, in fact, I can import scipy, numpy, pytools. But when I
try to import pyopencl it says
Python 2.7.3 (default, Dec 18 2012, 13:50:09)
[GCC 4.5.3] on cygwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license"
for more information.
>>> import pyopencl
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>

ImportError: No module named _cl
Good question. I know next to nothing about cygwin. My guess would be
that the pyopencl._cl module (the low-level C interface) is not finding
an OpenCL ICD loader to talk to.
Pretending that cygwin is like Linux, you could try:
or some such...
