Installed boinc for ati radeon. 6.10.17
Card is showing in device manager as functioning.
When I attached to collatz and dnetc neither say gpu. Dnetc actually says cpu normal.
Not sure of my next step. It's supposed to automatically recognize it.

Which operating system?

I ask that as 6.10.17 isn't the latest version, 6.10.58 is. So if you downloaded this BOINC from the Berkeley site, you should've gotten 6.10.58
Yet if you've got some version of Linux, its package manager may not be up-to-date and given you the older BOINC.

Now then, BOINC not detecting your GPU is always a problem with the driver. Either you didn't install the correct driver (never use the driver provided by the OS, always install an up-to-date driver from the GPU manufacturer), or your BOINC has no permission to look for this driver.

This happens in all Linux versions, where the OS separates the sandbox BOINC is installed in from parts the OS uses. This also happens in Windows Vista and 7 (and their Server component versions) when you install BOINC as a service.

So... over to you to give a lot more information.

I installed the drivers from amd and now it's working. I had installed the drivers previously with the disk that came with it but apparently that was wrong. Anyway,it is downloading both gpu and cpu work, presumably because now it can do both. I assume it will download more gpu work when the project it is running finishes.
In any case, thank you very much.
