I've Mathematica 8 installed on my laptop with Ubuntu 11.04 64bit and with 
nvidia drivers (ver. 270.41.06). The graphic card is a GT 330M.
The CUDALink works flawlessly with the paclet version CUDAResources-
Lin64- but not with the newest version CUDAResources-Lin64-
The environment variables are correctly setted:
export NVIDIA_DRIVER_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib64/nvidia-current/
export CUDA_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib64/nvidia-current/
so I'm really puzzled by this behavior.
The answer of CUDAQ[] in the case is False while CUDAInformation[] 
reports it's not able to initialize the cuda driver (which are anyway 
correctly detected).
Does anyone know what it's going on here?

...and I will make them pay for what they've done! (J.L. Picard)
