Hi out there,

last days i setup a pc to let it crunch a little bit.
I put opensuse 11.2 x86_64 on it, installed the newest 10.2 catalyst driver for the ATI hd 5870, installed the ati stream sdk 2.01. All this stuff worked pretty good.
So I thought, let's crunch a little bit, put the newest boinc 6.10.36 on it, all worked good but the graphics card was not detected.
So i tried the ati stream sdk if it detects, and really it does either with CAL or OpenCL.
i changed cc_config.xml to let coproc_debug set to 1.
The Output in boincmgr then changed and an extra line with
Code:

No usable CAL devices found

appeared.
I installed the boinc sources then to have a look.
Seems that in coproc_detect.c the number of devices is not detected right. Although you are using the same CAL routines as Ati does (and which detects the card).
I only could imagine that the wrapper stuff that is used to keep the file usable for either windows, linux or macos could matter.

As i don't want to install a Windows on this PC, i'd appreciate your help to get this running
Thanks for your work
keep on crunching

Since you have a problem installing boinc and/or getting it run properly, you better have a look at the BOINC forum.

This place is for the BOINCstats Bugs, meaning bugs in the statistics.

It would be nice if you posted it at the BOINC Dev forums and also explained what you see in coproc_detect.cpp versus what you expect to see there.

Additional question, can you try if an older BOINC version does detect the ATI card?
Can you test with 6.10.17, please?
