amd-clinfo depends on amd-libopencl1. The manpage says (in the name section)
that it reports fglrx OpenCL system status (the description section should
probably also be improved).
In fact, amd-clinfo reports OpenCL status of any ICD installed on the
system (not just the AMD one) and it does this with any ICD Loader installed
(not only with the AMD one).
So, amd-clinfo should depends on the virtual package libopencl1 instead of
I tested (installing amd-clinfo with --force-depends) and checked that
the clinfo works and report the same information with any of these
* amd-libopencl1 (in non-free)
* nvidia-libopencl1 (in non-free)
* ocl-icd-libopencl1 (in main)
* intel-libopencl1 (in a personnal private repo: intel software is not
The only difference is the value of "Platform ID:" but this is a address
that depends on the load address of the ICD shared libraries.
If this can be changed for wheezy, I would be very pleased.
