Hello,

The NVidia driver included with Karmic (v. 185) includes a regression that shows up when connecting dual Viewsonic VX2835wm flat panel displays, among others. The NVidia support forums indicate that they have released a fixed driver for Windoze, and I chimed in on the same thread asking for the release of an equivalent Linux driver.

Can this patched driver be made available when it is posted by NVidia?

Thanks,
Bill

FWIW, while waiting for the driver in 9.10 to be fixed, the work-around described in this post still works:

Albeit with the limitation that sound is no longer sent to the monitor's speakers via HDMI.
