    Typo, it was not "beta".

      Afaik, nvidia drivers with RandR support require kernel 3.4. I think it's pretty important, maybe the article should mention this.

        Yet it'll probably be another year until the 600M series works properly with Linux.

          KMS

          Nvidia, can I please have KMS (kernel mode setting) support?

            Where did you read that? I don't see why a specific kernel would be needed, modesetting is in nvidia's module and that one is kernel-agnostic.

            Here we go again... Why exactly?

              Wayland support, probably?

                Should someone come up with a way to display animated pink elephants while booting, are you going to ask for that as well? These drivers (finally) give you RandR which is way more useful, yet your only thought is about KMS...

                  You don't need KMS for that.

                    Oops, my memory is playing tricks on me. I was referring to this one: http://askubuntu.com/questions/13090...realtime-kerne
                    It's not about a newer kernel, it's about a newer X server actually. My bad.
