Default Help with OpenCL under Linux and nouveau

I've never writted anything in OpenCL and would appreciate some help from the good folk here. For information: I'm running Ubuntu 19.10 and would prefer to use the C API, though C++ would do at a pinch. The hardware has 6 cores and an Nvidia GTX1060. After wasting many hours trying to get the Nvidia drivers and CUDA working i gave up and reverted to the free nouveau free device driver. I've run apt-get for most everything I can find which refers to OpenCL.

There are two major issues. The show stopper is that clinfo reports "Number of platforms 0". I would have thought that it would have found the cpus at the very least.

The other is that I have yet to find a good tutorial for the language which goes beyond presenting the source code of (effectively) "Hello world." I have downloaded the C API spec.

Can anyone help?
