    It should work. Will land in my repos probably tomorrow. Currently using Linux 3.8.1 with 304.64.

    Is it updated to build properly on 3.7 and 3.8 kernels as well? If so, nice to see nvidia updating this legacy driver as I still have a 7900GS that is still running strong.

    It's legacy. Good to hear they have not forgotten us.
    Happy to be NVIDIA customer.

    Is this their long lived branch or legacy(seems to support geforces from 6 and 7 series).
