As promised, NVIDIA drivers 71.86.07 and 96.43.09 are now available for testing in Intrepid’s proposed repositories. If you don’t know how to use these repositories you can read the instructions.
Please give feedback here (say something like “driver 96 works for me”, etc.).
There is also a small fix which will solve a problem with diversions for drivers 177 and 173.
Please give feedback here
I have also fixed a bug in nvidia-settings (i.e. NVIDIA’s control panel) which made it segfault when no ServerLayout section is available in the xorg.conf.
Please test the package and give feedback here.
The sooner you test these packages, the sooner they will enter Intrepid’s stable repositories.
