Hmm unfortunately it does not work for me
I still have no TTY, just a purple bar on top of the screen and also when resuming from suspend I only get this purple bar. Then I have to hard-reset my laptop.
I am using Ubuntu 12.04 with an Geforce 8600M GT (driver 304.22) and the kernel 3.2.23 from the mainline kernel PPA.
Before installing the new beta driver I removed every tiny bit of leftovers of any older nvidia driver. Nouveau driver is blacklisted but I tested it before and it worked like a charm (TTY and resume from suspend).
Maybe anybody has an idea what is going wrong?
