I recently installed a new video card, from a Gigabyte 6950 to a Sapphire 7950. Without any software modification, poclbm would just hang indefinately. I was using 11.1 Catalyst drivers so I decided to install the latest 13.4 drivers and latest poclbm. It looked promising, and would start mining, but as soon as a share was discovered an error came up, "Verification Failure, check hardware!". I googled this error and supposedly different drivers were yet again in order. I found some 13.1 drivers which supposedly work well with 79xx cards. I ran poclbm again, and got this error:

Exception in thread Thread-2:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "threading.pyo", line 525, in __bootstrap_inner
  File "threading.pyo", line 477, in run
  File "BitcoinMiner.pyo", line 401, in miningThread
  File "BitcoinMiner.pyo", line 516, in loadKernal
  File "psyopencl\__init__.pyo", line 141, in program_build
RuntimeError:  clBuildProgram failed: build program failure

Build on <pyopencl.Device 'Tahiti
              ' at 0x495de58>:

Internal error: Input OpenCL binary is not for the target!

This is quite frustrating! Any suggestions from the pros here?...

edit:  still working at it.. going back to 13.4 drivers is giving me the "Verification Failure, check hardware!" error just like before... I'm at a complete loss here...
