Hi guys i'm running Boinc 6.10.17 under Debian Squeeze, i've an Ati Radeon HD 3450 512Mb and the driver Ati Catalyst 9.12 installed, is it real this card is unutilizable for distribuited computing??

SETI@Home does not have an ATi application yet. The only one in development I believe is a Windows app. Other projects have ATi applications in use but I do not know which ones have a *nix app to go with it.

Only Collatz has a Linux ATI app, but it is for 64-bit processors only.

For BOINC to recognize the card, it needs to be included in the Video group.
