What information would be helpful, I can't seem to find any evidence of
the existence of the above packages in Ubuntu [1]? It looks like
Steffen's planned boinc-cuda package will resolve all the issues
mentioned in the report, that is if it can depend on the packages

As far as I can tell from the package contents search, the libcuda
libraries are available, but not the libcudart, I think the rt might
stand for real time? But apart from this, I don't know if this library
is used, or can be used in boinc applications?
