Ready to take the (next) Nvidia plunge?

Post by ajgringo619 » Mon Oct 15, 2018 5:28 pm

Version 410.57 just came out (via the PPA). I heard a couple of Arch users talking about this last week; supposedly it fixes a bunch of problems, but I didn't bother to verify as my 396.54 drivers have been excellent.

OK, I just did it - so far, so good. My display seems a little brighter that it was; at least the installation completed without any errors.

Nothing earth-shattering. It's running fine here.
