NVIDIA 7000m and envyNG

Postby alkastan » Mon Feb 09, 2009 1:18 pm

Hello,

I tested on live cd mint 6 and I see the possibility to install driver for Nvidia version 177.xxx.xxx, on Mint 5 that I have installed on laptop, the newest version available of Nvidia drivers via EnvyNG is version 173.xxx.xxx; I want to stay in Mint 5 and as I have some freezes sometimes I wonder if install a newer version of drivers would help.

What do u think about it?
I saw on Nvidia websites also a version 180.xxx.xxx Is it better?

Thanks in advance for your help

Adrien

There is no way to tell beforehand whether one version of a software will work better than the other on a given system. In my case, for example, I see my system work better with the 17x.xx branch than with the 18x.xx, but there are many users who declare quite the opposite on various Linux forums. So, again, we can not tell you if the latest version of the driver will improve your system stability.
