Yeah I plan to focus on that once I get the rest working

Hmmm, I figure I should look into building them in that case, it maybe more
convienient to have them built along with the source; I've seen some packages
work like this.

Noted, I'll see what I can do.

I have no idea how to do the symlink part, the soname part seems easy though. I
would think the soname part can be fixed like so:
>sed -i 's/ldl/ldl -Wl,-soname,libclrun.so.0/g' src/clrun/Makefile
Although can you lend me a hand for the symlink? :)

Not necessarily, it can be the source too, though it maynot be necessary if I
can figure out how to patch dolphin-emu to use the *.so instead of rebuilding

I just realized I need to make a opencl-utils-devel along with a CLRun-devel; I
by accident put all the files in CLRun-devel instead.

Thanks! I knew I forgot something.

Good point, that would make more sense, thanks! :)
