MAGMA on Windows

Post by sunils » Sun Jan 23, 2011 11:51 pm

Is Magma supported on windows?
Has anyone been successful in building the library on a windows machine, or are there down loadable libraries?

Thanks,
Linus

We are planning to support MAGMA on Windows after we finalize the 1.0 release. Also, as the sources are released, we hope that outside contributors may be interested to provide the Windows support (or at least the initial port).

Having Magma on Windows would be great since I use windows most of the time. Looking forward for this feature update.

I'm new in Magma and I tried to use the sources on windows but I couldn't. Is anybody could use them somehow? I saw that some include files contain the windows.h header so somehow has to work just I don't know how :S

I'm new in cuda and just wanted to use the magma package on windows. Unfortunately I couldn't. Is anybody who could build a project with the magma source files?

What is the state of MAGMA on windows? I compiled it using MinGW, but it the examples crash at cuInit.
Also compilation is a painsome process since nvcc defaults to cl.exe (Visual C) on Windows.
I think for Windows it might be more suitable to provide precompiled libraries.

Thx,
Frank
