Hi,

I am running trunk right now from weekly builds. I although still on the 180.X nvidia drivers. there are a lot of fixes in the drivers in the 190 series. How can I upgrade the drivers with packages?

Only thing google leads me two is Jean Avenard's page but if i activate his i get his custome mythtv packages too. which i dont want since they are .21 based.

Thanks,
Mitchell

Here are a couple of promising hits off of Google...

A word of caution... I ran the 180 series betas for a while out of necessity (Compiz didn't like the 170 series with my card). Be prepared to repeat the beta procedure each time the kernel gets upgraded. You will not have a graphical session after a post kernel upgrade reboot.
