Upgraded to the new AMD driver version 17.8.1 and now the Enigma tasks are failing with code 195 EXIT_CHILD_FAILED. Checked the other projects, and no other project is having an issue with the new driver.

After going back to 17.7.1 for awhile so that the Enigma GPU tasks would run, upgraded to the latest driver tonight 17.9.1 and everything is running fine.
... and still I fear, and still I dare not laugh at the Mad Man!

I have a FM1 board with a HD 6670 and the HD 6550D of an A8-3820 APU.
I am running the most recent AMD driver for that setup, which is 16.2.1
All WUs exceed the time limit since a week or so, before that all was running well.

Another system uses Ubuntu 16.04, which can't use the AMD Driver anymore and has an Open Source video driver, that works on e.g. Xansons for COD.
Enigma WUs fail though because Preferred OpenCL platform vendor (Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.) not found.

Matszpk (the OpenCL port author) said he will look at the possibility to support open source driver.
The current version is highly optimized for AMD OpenCL and that's why it's refusing to run on other platforms.
