[Semi-petition] Please, release updated 256.53.xx driver
 
Zander/Aaron,

I know that you haven't ever done that before, but since 260.19.12 drivers have some very unpleasant regressions, can you please release an updated 256.53.xx driver which supports newer kernels (please, test that it compiles and works on 2.6.37-git snapshot)?

Many many people will be thankful to you (including me).

P.S. Please, nvnews visitors, leave a message here if you support this idea.

Actually, me too use the 256.53 driver because the 260.19.12 has many bugs.

openSUSE 11.3
KDE 4
Kernel 2.6.34.7-0.4-desktop (x86_64)
Nvidia 310M (with driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-256.53.run)

I support this idea, unless they can get a fixed 260.x release out just as fast.

Go to www.nvidia.com and go to drivers and you will see the update.

I must be blind, cause cannot find any updates for x86_64 linux drivers.

Must say that "non-functional" drivers for expensive hardware is unacceptable!
Sony vaio F11S1E

Will think twice the next time I purchase hardware...

I do apologize, because their drivers are not on the page. All I know is that I've done an update today, and I had an nVidia update today. I am on version 260.19.12_k2.6.34.0_12-24.1.

This is the Linux section of the forum. There is no update for Linux today.

Thanks for pointing that out to me. But my point is still valid. There was an nvidia update today.

This is update for openSuse driver. Just another build of 260.19.12.

Not nVidia's update.
