So I received a 5870 today, and plan to run it in the box with my 5970.

I uninstalled ati stream/drivers and driver cleaned.

I then reinstalled with Cat 10-12 and Ati Stream 2.3... when I attempted to launch miners they crash poclbm. If I run GPU caps or GPU-z, it states open CL is 'not installed'.

I installed everything from a fresh driver clean... is there anything I can try? :/

Stream 2.4 is out and working great for my 6970.  Perhaps you should consider that.  I have read that 2.3 had some performance issues .. maybe other issues?

Be sure drivers you install have "_ocl" at the end of the file name.

I was mining on 5870+5970 and it worked fine.
If you are using Windows XP - ensure that SP3 is installed.
Try ATI Stream SDK 2.1 and 2.2
If you see 3 GPUs in poclbm and only one of them crashes - use special old version of poclbm to mine on a slave core of 5970.

Do you have both in crossfire?
OpenCl doesn't appear in any of the cards in gpu-z ?

Ended up trying to uninstall/reinstall several times, tried with and without crossfire, etc. Always came up as a "driver open cl installation" error when I opened GPUCaps.

For anyone interested, I ended up fixing this by simply installing the NEWEST Catalyst driver set.

The newest set comes pre-bundled with OpenCL without any need to manually install ATIStream... works fine for me.

I noticed this as well, but I installed Stream 2.4 anyway.  No harm no foul it seems.
