Post Re: NVIDIA patches download site

Hi Lonni,

understand, that somebody can dig through those,....

my point is, that there is a official driver download page,....
but unless, you search for forums, and siff through threads,.... you won't find
an offical place, webpage, ftp site, where you can just download patches,...

all other software site, have a version repository, and a patch directory,
with version history,....
good ,bad, ugly,... don't care, put them up on an ftp site,
and please, also, have a reference link , on the main download site,...

it's just not fair, to have somebody download an driver, spend countless hours, to make it work, to find out, you need an patch, and even if you know from somebody , that you do need an patch, to have to hunt for it,...

ehm, what about a patch notification list/bog ,... for the poor IT folks,??
or other folks,... who sit on the geforce cards,... not haveing the time,
to live on the nvidia forum, to find out about a possible patch,
when you would know,....

that brings us to documentation ?? but that's another can of worms,....

cheers, Robert Schultz

ps: everybody short some NVIDIA stocks,.... since I'am shure it will go up,....
-> next year,....

The same existed for 1.0-7676, although they are no longer sticky, as its no longer a supported driver since the release of 1.0-8174.

Thanks,
Lonni
