Whatever discussions you do about this subject, please add me too! I'm very interested in this bug, since I also have an ATI HD 7770, and I can help with tests.

Currently, boinc starts without any GPU, and I must restart the client once I log in so it detect my GPU. I do so in a wrapper script for boinc manager, but that is a workaround, not a solution. Also, something weird I noticed: using "sudo /etc/init.d/bloinc-client restart" always work, but "sudo service boinc-client restart" sometimes does NOT (it restarts service, but boinc still does not find GPU. Weren't both commands supposed to be the same thing? Why is there a difference?

Btw, the approach of LocusOfBorg of adding "lightdm" to init script sounded VERY promising. Did it work?

Please CC me in emails about this subject.
