Need to change dependencies :

Change libcl by ocl-icd. Works fine.

I've installed the opencl-amd implementation of the AMDGPU-PRO driver which should work with the FOSS AMDGPU driver. When I try to install silentarmy, or silentarmy-git for that matter, I get this output.

$ LANG=C pacman -S silentarmy
:: Package silentarmy not found in repositories, trying AUR...
:: resolving dependencies...
:: no results found for libcl (dependency tree: silentarmy libcl)

When trying to install libcl it doesn't work. After short research it means that I should install one of these: catalyst-total-pxp, freeocl-git, khronos-ocl-icd, khronos-ocl-icd-svn, libopencl.

Fitting to me seems the libopencl, as it is the AMD OpenCL library and ICD loader. When trying to install libopencl from the AUR it tells me that it's in conflict with ocl-icd (official). ocl-icd is a dependency of opencl-amd. Here the dog is byting its tail...

Do you have any suggestions on how to get silentarmy working with Arch?

Note that this is basically "v3+" - v3 itself as tagged in git doesn't seem to run properly, but the current (as of time of writing this comment) tip of git master DOES, so I took the liberty of making a "v3.0.1" here and targeting it in the PKGBUILD in the name of keeping the package sans git extension while still stable.

If this seriously grinds anyone's purist gears, let me know, and I'll try to look out for v4 when/if it drops.
