Rev82 committed

It has been a while since the last update on Pyrit. Besides smaller things, the code-changes since rev69 include:

*  The Stream-Core has been updated to support the new SDK 1.4 including support for Multi-GPU on ATI-GPUs.
*  The CUDA-Core is now using the Driver-API directly so you are no longer required to have the CUDA-Toolkit installed on the machine where Pyrit should run – the graphics-driver alone will do the job. This again puts some relief to LiveCDs.
*  Pyrit can now initialize airolib-ng databases. The API has been moved from pysqlite2 to Python’s own sqlite3 module.
*  Exporting to cowpatty-format is about 50% faster.
*  The benchmark function is by far more reliable now.
*  The spell ‘Arcane Missiles’ has been updated and is now working as intended.

Due to my ridiculous lack of hardware, the Multi-GPU functionality on ATI-GPUs is untested. Please add a comment about your results to this post if you happen to own a Radeon 4850 X2 or similar hardware.



  1. Installed CPyrit-Stream and Pyrit from source on Ubuntu 8.04
    with stream beta 1.4 Catalyst 9.1

    CPU core works and is recognized
    AMD Stream core was not recognized from pyrit list_cores

    • You probably need to symlink into /usr/lib or /usr/lib64…

      Try executing

      python -c “from _cpyrit import _cpyrit_stream”

      and see what happens..

  2. is linked in usr/lib

    after executing python -c ‘from _cpyrit import _cpyrit_stream’

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “”, line 1, in
    ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/_cpyrit/ undefined symbol: _ZN5brook8SystemRT16createStreamImplEtPjPNS_8BRformatEj

  3. Make sure you are using Stream SDK 1.4 and Catalyst 9.2
