The underlying problem here is not with BOINC but with the way the
driver initializes the GPU. It seems that for newer AMD/ATI GPU's you
need an active x-session (aka logged in user). Usually BOINC is started
via init-script at boot time but there is no user logged in. What you
can do is to deactivate the init-script and somehow transform this into
an autostart skript after you login to your desktop manager. The init
process can't help us here as it has no information about logged in

@laza74: Can you post what driver you have installed for your GPU?

@costamagnagianfranco: can you add the driver package to this bug as the
reason is clearly in the driver.
