I've got the pre-Pascal Titan X (compute capability 5.2) on a workstation running Ubuntu 14.04 and CUDA 7.5. BOINC works with SETI@Home, but GPUGrid yields nothing but computation errors. Any thoughts?

I'm able to use the GPU for other CUDA apps, and the driver is working fine. Only GPUGrid complains.

Trying to run acemd directly:
$ ./acemd.848-65.bin

# CUDA Synchronisation mode: BLOCKING
# Unable to initialise. Check permissions on /dev/nvidia* (err=-1)
$ ls -lah /dev/nvidia*

Thoughts?

You should check the access rights of the user who runs BOINC manager on that folder. (The command prompt runs under a different user)

The boinc user runs the boinc background process & SETI@Home. My account runs the Boinc Manager, and doesn't have rights to the Boinc data directory. Is that the problem? Why would the user of the Boinc Manager need access to the Boinc data directory? This works fine for SETI@Home for CPU & GPU tasks.
