Looks like it is a Ubuntu packaging problem. PyCUDA again worked once I did
`sudo apt-get install nvidia-modprobe` as suggested here:
Thanks for your help Tomasz and Andreas, I'll try those debugging lines
first if anything else comes up.

Before I left work on Friday I checked to ensure
that the packages in
Synaptic were all NVIDIA version 331 (I think). Even if the numbers
are right in Synaptic, I suppose there could still be a version
mismatch somewhere, so I'll check "dmesg" specifically on Monday.
FWIW I am pretty sure that the CUDA version jumped up from 5.5 (or
5.0?) in 14.04 up to CUDA 6.0 in 14.10. But I assume that PyCUDA is
designed (and tested) to be forward-compatible, so I doubt that's the
It depends on how Ubuntu builds PyCUDA.
Check pycuda package dependencies:
$ apt-cache show python-pycuda
whether there is any dependency on package
with 5.5 in its name, or only 6.0 packages.
