Re: [Pkg-opencl-devel] ROCm RFP

Dear all,

Looks like there are already two ROCm related packages in experimental,
courtesy of the "ROCm Team":



Do you think those ROCm packages will eventually trickle down to Bullseye
+ backports in order to replace mesa-opencl-icd and libclc-amdgcn ?

Best regards,
