This section provides information about the required meta-packages for the following AMD ROCm programming models:

  • Heterogeneous-Computing Interface for Portability (HIP)

  • OpenCL™

  • OpenMP™

ROCm package naming conventions#

A meta-package is a grouping of related packages and dependencies used to support a specific use case.

Example: Running HIP applications

All meta-packages exist in both versioned and non-versioned forms.

  • Non-versioned packages: For a single-version installation of the ROCm stack

  • Versioned packages: For multi-version installations of the ROCm stack

ROCm Release Package Naming

The figure above demonstrates the single and multi-version ROCm packages’ naming structure, including examples for various Linux distributions. See terms below:

Module - It is the part of the package that represents the name of the ROCm component.

Example: The examples mentioned in the image represent the ROCm HIP module.

Module version - It is the version of the library released in that package. It should increase with a newer release.

Release version - It shows the ROCm release version when the package was released.

Example: 50400 points to the ROCm 5.4.0 release.

Build id - It represents the build number for that release.

Arch - It shows the architecture for which the package was created.

Distro - It describes the distribution for which the package was created. It is valid only for rpm packages.

Example: el8 represents RHEL 8.x packages.

Components of ROCm programming models#

The figure below demonstrates the high-level layered architecture of ROCm programming models and their meta-packages. All meta-packages are a combination of required packages and libraries.

ROCm meta packages

Note

The preceding figure is for informational purposes only. The individual packages in a meta-package are subject to change. To avoid conflicts, install meta-packages, not individual packages.

Example:

  • rocm-hip-runtime is used to deploy on supported machines to execute HIP applications.

  • rocm-hip-sdk contains runtime components to deploy and execute HIP applications.

Note

rocm-llvm is not a meta-package; it’s a single package that installs the ROCm Clang compiler files.
