Re: Please do not use 295.40 or the security patch with GeForce 6, 7 or 8800GTX/GTS c
295.33 does not work for me (8800M GTX) with or without the security patch. It crashes one minute after logging in, regardless of what I am doing. Same goes for 295.40 and 294.41 (developer driver downloaded from CUDA Zone).
This leaves me with no hope for this laptop. I guess I can consider it deprecated for the Nvidia proprietary drivers with a Linux kernel.
I see 3 options:
- Sticking to an old Linux distribution (kernel 2.6.32 and legacy xorg) and old Nvidia drivers (270.41.19).
- Using the Nouveau drivers (which means no Cuda).
- Migrating to FreeBSD...
