Default Re: Request to nVidia - Framebuffer Support with the proprietary driver. SOMEHOW can

I'm also desperately waiting for it for years now.

my guess is:
The fbdev-driver is finished by now. But nVidia can't decide on what to do with the installer... When the fbdev-driver is in use, they can't simply unload the kernel module and the installer would have to be totally changed.

Other reason for the delay might be some GPL-only symbols in the kernel.
