indeed, not very helpful ...

When I installed Cuda the latest driver (296.0) that was running on my 
laptop (a W520 ThinkPad) was not sufficient for version 5.0. However as 
I noticed today in February Lenovo released a driver update (311.0) and 
with that 5.0 is in fact running. :-)

With that the Haskell bindings work well.

Thanks again very much, Geoff
