    Does anyone know if this builds with the 3.0-rcX kernels without patches?

      While nvidia moves forward with supporting more and more new gpu's why don't they make the support of RandR in their proprietary driver? Or just make it possible to swap monitors without xorg restart...

      This is so annoying that each time i want to connect to external display I have to reload my session...

          Does anyone know if this release also fixes the issues with Gnome-Shell + Nvidia when trying to enable multiple monitors?

          My GF9400M currently corrupts + locks every time I try to enable an external monitor in addition to my laptop's built-in LCD.

            Confused

            I'm running Ubuntu Natty and I have Nvidia driver version 270.41.06. Still update-manager tells me that there are no available updates.

            Wat do?

              You know, that a driver release from nvidia has nothing to do with updates in your distro?
              Nvidia doesnt packaging drivers for any distro.

                  Sounds good, just the kind of thing I was looking for. But I was wondering if that repository is for the latest bleeding edge drivers or latest stable releases? (I'm looking for the latest stable Nvidia driver, as described in the news article)

                    The latest stable releases are at https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat/+archive/x-updates , but they don't have the new driver yet.

                    If you really want to install these new drivers, you can download the individual DEB packages from the xorg-edgers PPA:

                    64 bit:

                      This stable release has some bugs - and probably shouldn't have left beta quite yet.

                      there are some 'icon' bugs - in gnome-shell, and i have noticed in firefox the auto-scrolling icon doesn't display properly.

                      i believe bug reports have been filed in both cases though...

                      i use compiz with gnome3 - and haven't noticed any problems aside from firefox (which is minor - i would actually like to disable that icon anyway..lol).
