MX 17 Repository: The Nvidia-driver Thread

#1 Post by Stevo » Thu Nov 08, 2018 4:11 pm

We've ported over the latest proprietary Nvidia graphic drivers 390.87 from stretch-backports to our test repo, for those with newer hardware, or perhaps were having trouble with the openCL memory leak that this is supposed to fix. We may also move these to main for the next point release in order to support newer hardware out of the box.

Those that have already installed 390.87 from backports won't see this version as an upgrade, however, since it's versioned to be lower than that set of packages.

If you upgrade to this version, please let us know how they install and perform. Thanks!
