Kubuntu 11.04 freezes
As others have reported, I'm having freezes on Kubuntu 11.04. This is a new install, and I'm using the nvidia 270.41.06 driver (from the ubuntu/kubuntu repos). Resizing the konsole (terminal) causes the screen to freeze. After turning off Desktop effects, the freezes stop. Googling this issue, I see that some are advising a newer driver directly from the nvidia site.
Two questions: 1) will this work, and if so what is the updated driver number?
2) When will a fixed driver get into the ubuntu repos? I'm one of those cats who really doesn't like to go outside the repos -- especially when the drivers must show up there eventually.
