    Exclamation Ubuntu Server won't install opencl compliant driver for ATI Radeon HD 4870

    I had an NVIDIA card in this computer and I installed the nvidia-opencl-dev package with no issues. After installing the ATI card, I tried to install the boinc-amd-opencl package and it tells me:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    boinc-amd-opencl : Depends: amd-libopencl1 but it is not installable
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    lspci finds:
    VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV770 [Radeon HD 4870

    How do I install an opencl supported driver for this card?

    Hi

    amd-libopencl1 does not seem to be available for precise.

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/boinc-amd-opencl

    amd-libopencl1 Package not available
    An apt-cache search does not show it in Saucy either.

    It also say's it's unavailable.

    It may not be good for an AMD card.

    Looks like debian may have it.
