Question NVIDIA, please release updated 290.xx drivers for new kernels and X.org versions

295.53 and 302.11 drivers both have a "text consoles are dead" issue.

302.11 - doesn't work with suspend for a lot of us.

Aaron, Zander and other NVIDIA engineers, can you please release updated 290.xx drivers for new kernels and X.org versions?

To NV forums users: if you like this idea please leave a message in this thread.

I second this, i hacked some installation files and used 290.10 with 3.4 kernel (pae) + xorg-server 1.12.2 with ignoreabi, but i've had a kernel freeze after some minutes of use.
Now with 295.53 i've blank tty after a while and i'm using a second Xorg server as a tty replacement.
Still, hibernation is a pain because it uses tty.

Seriously... We cannot expect them to resume an old piece of software that has some security vulnerabilities too... Better to wait a bit IMHO, but i definitely hope that 30x series will be released only when every nasty regression is fixed...

vaccaaa,

There's a serious flaw in your reasoning since there's no regression at all:

We're trying to figure out what happened, but since we don't understand exactly what happened yet, we can't promise that it will be fixed. Even if we do end up fixing it, please don't take that as a sign that we support non-VGA consoles.

@artem,
we're still talking about non-VGA consoles.

hopefully the stability issues with gpus <=G80 get also fixed soon
a release that fixes a bug instead of introducing a load of new regressions would be nice

+1 from me to.
I need my tty's and I think it is shocking some of us are experiencing this. Not everyone has a newer card.
I've been advised to use the 290* series instead, which is what I have done.
So far today I have had over 10 nvidia-tls segfaults. !!!!!
Sure, I have my consoles now, just that my window manager crashes about 10 times a day now.
Geeez.

In drivers 295.59 persist this problem.
In the 290.xx NO problem.
I have kernel 3.4.1.

Do you know what I mean? I'm going to put the kernel 3.2.20 with 290.10 and otherwise butterfly. Why not take the instability that is making Linux drivers.
