Public bug reported:

Ive been running Boinc for years on the same hw with Ubuntu and AMD-
cards, it has always found the GPUs. I updated from Ubuntu 14.04 to
15.04 and to 15.10 and now it only says. No useable GPUs found in the

I verified that I use the latest AMD-drivers from -updates-repository.
I also tried using LotusOfBorgs Boinc-ppa https://launchpad.net/~costamagnagianfranco/+archive/ubuntu/locutusofborg-ppa to see if the problem would disappear with a newer boinc-version, but no. 
I read that I might have to restart boinc after login for it to find the GPUs, but it doesnt help.

After some searching I notice A LOT of people seems to be asking about
this problem, for many years, and there doesnẗ seem to be a standard
solution. How come this can be such a hard bug/problem to solve? Any
ideas how I can fix it on my setup?
