    Nvidia-current reverted back in QQ.

    Nvidia-current is reverted back to the version 304.43 to cope with nvidia-cuda-toolkit.

    Re: Nvidia-current reverted back in QQ.

    I have just read the bug report. Interesting reading. This is what concerns me:

    The bug is reported on 2012-09-26 as relating to version 304.51 of the Nvidia driver that is being pushed out by the ubuntu-x-swat ppa. Which I do not have enabled on this 12.10 install.

    So, why did I get this particular driver installed on my system with yesterday's standard update.

    I note this post in that bug report:

    Looks like Alberto has already uploaded 304.51 to quantal.
    The comment was made in a post on 2012-10-05.

    So, why did a driver with a known issue get pushed into the standard Quantal repositories?

    Just when I thought it was safe to go back into the Nvidia water!

    If I chose to tick the proposed repository box or install an experimental ppa then I expect problems. And I ought to be ready to fix it.

    Surely the purpose of using these experimental repositories is to identify issues before they get into the main trunk.

    Regards.

    I installed the driver from nvidia 304.51, and there's really no bugs that could be found..
    I wonder if there running mid-range cards? As there are known issues with the 4x and 5x series but 6X is pretty gosh darn stable.
