[Bug 1400021] Re: boinc-nvidia-cuda does not install nvidia-modprobe

Sorry, I have not done this very thoroughly.  
When I installed Mythbuntu (14.04 LTS) some time ago I had to install a couple of non-obvious things to get boinc to use cuda and to display some pretty graphics.  Recently I did a test install of Vivid Vervet and started boincmgr to see what would happen.  Clicking on "activity" gave a drop down menu that was missing the GPU options.  After a brief head scratch, an ah-ha moment, and a misguided effort to be helpful, I dashed of a note to say what I did last time.  The pycuda stuff looked familiar, but might have been for the pretty graphics that some projects display - or maybe my memory is just failing.  
Nvidia-modprobe, python-pycuda and python3-pycuda have been installed on my VV test partition and the drop down menu still does not display the GPU options.  I will have another look at it and try to give some more sensible comments, but Wimbledon runs for another week, so I might not be that fast.  
Thank you for your work.
