Default latest location

When I look at : ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/latest.txt I see 9629 not the most recent announced of 9631?
is this the correct place to find the latest package?

I did notice this but is the normal ftp location being changed or has it not been updated.

I had no problem downloading it from the ftp site this morning (AUS Sydney time). (Using the link on that thread) If your having trouble, it may be due to server congestion.. try the http: link..

I think your missing the point...
ie the issue is not about if I can download update , its that I monitor the above site for updates, and if they are not using this they should remove it as it gives the impression that the "latest" is 9629 not 31 .

Sorry, that wasn't the impression I got from your post.. If that's the case, then you will need to wait until it gets updated... I also monitor several game companies ftp sites for patch updates, and they are usually many months behind with their updates.. (Even when I managed to get the updates else where) Some have not even been updated to this date, and are already serveral patches behind, even now..

In the past its usually been updated soon, perhaps someone has forgot.
