First place to look is client_state.xml which appears to hold the GPU enumeration "for ever" following a restart of BOINC.

Edit to add:
Second place coproc_info.xml which is easier to read

On Windows, learn where stdoutdae.txt is in the data folder.

On Linux, you'll need journalctl.

Should I be concerned about this at the end of that file? "<warning>No ATI library found.</warning>"
Only if you have an ATI card and no driver for it.

OK - https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/blob/master/client/gpu_amd.cpp#L131

callib is 'CAL library'. CAL is the first proprietary language used for programming ATI cards, when they were ATI and not AMD. It must be legacy support, in case you want to install a driver and run programs still using that old language - it's been discontinued for several years now. No harm from the legacy check, but no benefit, either.
