Please change dependencies for Boinc Cuda package

Bug Description


Currently boinc-nvidia-cuda package depends on nvidia-current package, which relies itself on nvidia-304 driver. This version is outdated, especially for users who are at the same time steam users.

So please change the dependency requirements so that it depends on nvidia-304 | nvidia-319 | nvidia-310 . This may require some live compilation at the time of install, but this would be much better.

Thanks for your report!

just a question before committing on git

@Depends: ${misc:Depends}, boinc, libcuda1 | libcuda-5.0-1 | nvidia-304 | nvidia-310 | nvidia-319,
@Recommends: libcuda1-i386 [amd64] | libcuda-5.0-1-i386 [amd64]

is it ok now? it is becoming more complicated this file :(
I don't understand why they don't ship cuda anymore and they don't have any "nvidia-current" anymore
