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

I'm not game to play with my main LTS system, but on my Vivid Vervet test partition 
tab completion gave, systemctl restart boinc-client.service, which did not do anything obvious.  BUT after installing 352 from <https://launchpad.net/~mamarley/+archive/ubuntu/nvidia> the drop down menu showed the GPU options and it asked to connect to a project, which it had completely failed to do earlier.  

There seems to be a long standing bug involving dkms, nvidia, uvm and
compiling two modules at once.  The fix has been found, but not worked
its way down to production systems yet.  I will have to do a fresh
install of Vivid Vervet to work out what is necessary and what is not.
At this stage my guess is that the video driver upgrade is necessary and
the python stuff is not.

Sorry for the delay, I have only one working computer and I use it to
record and watch TV.

Hope this is helpful.
