That's what I was thinking I had read somewhere, that boinc starts before drivers get loaded and no gpu is detected..er something like that. Issue #1 in the last post of DR's link.

 

Wish I could be of more help too !

Hey . . . I use Debian, but consider:

When you install Boinc via the package manager, in some distros, it creates a "boinc" user and runs everything as that. Everything is owned by that user as well. This is a security feature, but I've had problems where the boinc user cannot access the display and associated graphics hardware. Also, you can get the aforementioned problem where Boinc is initialized too early and cannot detect the graphics card.

Try downloading it directly from boinc.berkeley.edu. Install it (sh boincxxxxxxx.sh), then execute "boincmgr" or "run_manager" in the BOINC directory.

Basically, this will execute Boinc as your user, instead of as "boinc." Note that this does not run it as a daemon. And if you choose this permanently, it will not start itself with Linux without additional tweaking. By the way, the version in the repos is often very out of date. Some projects will not execute the GPU applications (einstein@home) using the repository supplied Boinc.

Even if fedora doesn't set up its own user for execution purposes, this may still help you rule out graphics driver issues if it can detect and run on the hardware.

Good luck. You can PM me if you want, but it's probably better to just post here so future generations can figure this out.
