Well, the 352.41 driver had an effectively short life - 355.11 is now stable.

Since the older 355.06 beta was newer than the 352.30 stable, I thought the next stable might take care of this - and it still might.

I'll install the 355.11, and will report back if there's an issue, but the sgfxi fix should take care of this thread issue anyway. But it might be the case that the fix is not be needed for the 355 driver.

Thanks. Gene, nice to see you here.

EDIT:

h2, as you might have guessed, the script wants to install 352.41.

yes, I saw that earlier, but didn't get around to updating sgfxi.

that's now updated.

Remember, if you have any issues, make sure to post a proper nvidia forum bug report, otherwise they may not know about the problem.

nvidia has a very easy to use debugging tool, in fact, I modeled sgfxi's after it.

The new older stable 352.63 and new latest 358.16 have been out for a while. When the script was 11/24/15 (and then perhaps 11/29/15), I downloaded the latest (358.16), and placed it into /usr/src/sgfxi-downloads/, then messed with the sgfxi script, and installed it. But there must have been some change (in perhaps the 11/29/15 script and) in the 12/09/15 script.

Bottom line: please update sgfxi. It still wants to install the old drivers.

Thanks

This was actually an nvidia failure, I updated sgfxi today, nvidia usually has a downloadable version file I use to check versions, but it seems like the nvidia guy who usually updates it was gone for a few weeks.

I updated sgfxi this morning with the new current, and legacy 340/304 drivers.

I was waiting for them to update it, they finally did today. Hmm, but there's a glitch in my checker tool as well I see, that's odd. Maybe they changed the syntax, I'll check.

The 4.3 kernel just came into SID yesterday, and that may be the reason that nvidia guy (Daniel Dadap?) finally updated that downloadable version file.

358.16 installed. Thanks.

No, debian has nothing to do with nvidia's driver version file, that's maintained by aaron p, of nvidia.

He maintains it as a courtesy to people who need to track that info, like me. Or nvidia package maintainers, etc.

I also had a glitch in my checker script, I think, or not, but he didn't update it for a long time.
