When will your nVidia drivers support CUDA, OpenCL?

Asked by cybergoat

I've installed nVidia's latest drivers from their site so I could support CUDA computing in BOINC but it screwed up X pretty good. As far as I know Ubuntu has no plans to update their nVidia driver so I'd like to petition them to do so. When Ubuntu supports CUDA, OpenCL, StreamSDK computing out of the box it'll be my primary development OS. When will this be the case?

PS: I'm thrilled about Ubuntu's latest kernel update! I can use my Samsung SyncMaster 720n in its native resolution now!

Thank you,

Ubuntu or Canonical do not make the nvidia driver, nvidia make the driver so you should make noise there, the nvidia ppa may give you a later build and will automatically update the driver when the repo is updated rather than you having to mess around with run files every now and again

Can you help with this problem?
