First of all Mandriva's CUDA packages contain libraries for both /usr/
lib and /usr/lib64.

I could get CUDA and OpenCL to work by reading following tutorial
1 symbolic links
  cd /usr/lib/nvidia-current
  ln -s
  cd /usr/lib
  ln -s nvidia-current/
2 script to start Mathematica
  export NVIDIA_DRIVER_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/nvidia-current/libnvidia-
  export CUDA_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/nvidia-current/
