Re: MX-17 Beta 2 Feedback

...main 375.82 Nvidia driver has no problem with the 4.13 kernel Yes. Got no problem with it on 4.13 kernel. Since backported nvidia driver appears to me bit newer I choose the one with 375.82- 8 ~bpo9+1 name. Not from main repo. And what's the difference between those main's and bpo's versions? Gr...

Re: MX-17 Beta 2 Feedback

The backported 304xx and 340xx Nvidia legacy drivers are now in the main MX 17 repo for testing with the 4.13 kernels. They are also in the testing repo for MX 15, since we don't have kernels in main that needs those ones.

Re: MX-17 Beta 2 Feedback

The changelog for the 340xx Nivida drivers in Buster says they are patched for 4.14, so a backport should work. There's also a newer 304xx in Buster that should work, too.

Re: MX-17 Beta 2 Feedback

We'll have to see if those legacy drivers are already patched in stretch-backports for the 4.13 kernel there. I did an install in Virtual Box and upgraded to the 4.13.0-1 (4.13.13) kernel in our test repo from the stock bpo 4.13.0-0, and it's running fine. This is seen as a new package, not an upgr...
