    While NVIDIA's official 195.36.18 driver has been around for about one month, the Santa Clara engineers are getting ready to pump out a new official update. In fact, before the week ended, NVIDIA put out the 195.36.24 pre-release, which may be marked as their official stable release this week...

        Why are the nVidia drivers named like this?

        NVIDIA 195.36.24 with support for a new board series and has a number like this? Why not 196.1.12 or something to that effect?

        Anyone with a clue?

          Fixed in this release is also a problem that caused occasional red flashes during X-Video playback.
          Finally!

          Although I thought that had been fixed in the latest 190.xx release that I had from one of the PPAs.

            ok i try this driver helping a frend install this driver...

            and we fail...

            in an geforce 8600 we install 195.36.24 over a ubuntu 10.04+ NVIDIA 195.36.15 and .... it fails...

            the NVIDIA 195.36.24 fails to uninstall NVIDIA 195.36.15 and after the install of NVIDIA 195.36.24 the system does not start X at start

            if we install the driver on every startup in bash after that we can do a 'startx'

            befor that some old NVIDIA 195.36.15 kernel modules was found and he do not find the .24 ones..

            in the end... we are down and rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

            fuck of nvidia,,, next day we reinstall kubuntu 10.04 complete and try to install this fucking fuck driver again without broken NVIDIA 195.36.15 files.

              The only failure here is your failure to read the instructions. You uninstall the old driver first and then install the new. It even warns you when you install the driver. The other factor is that you probably first started with a prepackaged for ubuntu instead of using the actual nvidia installer. Considering I did the EXACT same install of the driver on a Ubuntu 10.04 system with a 8600 card with no troubles points to user error.

                Your incompetence has nothing to do with the driver itself.

                    oh yes... thats true.. but 'users' are always incompetence!

                    if the nvidia installer fails on my incompetence the nvidia installer fails on any non skilled user!

                    i install nvidia and ati/amd cloused source drivers for 7 years now on linux..

                    and only nvidia fails to uninstall the old driver first at the install script !
