        Sounds like it can be patched http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=3083

        I imagine they'll support 6.2 before any mainstream distros start delivering it. Fedora 37 is on 6.0.

          It's been like this FOREVER. Either get used to waiting 6 hours to 6 weeks for the newest kernel support to hit or buy something that has support baked into the kernel. Literally why pick on this to post about, nobody cares, it's old news this is how it is, and literally nobody cares except Nvidia users.

            I care despite not using NVIDIA.

            It is a nice reminder to not buy GPUs where the vendor does not provide the related hardware documentation as to enable open source driver development.

              Yes, using his patch seems also to help for 525 drivers. I have tested it. Needs some little modifications.

                    True, and since all professionals on Linux are using nVidia GPUs in combination with enterprise-tier distributions with LTS kernels, they couldn't care less whether nVidia's driver works with the newest upstream Linux version or not, since the customers can rely on the fact that when the time comes to upgrade to the next LTS version, nVidia's Linux driver will support that particular revision flawlessly, guaranteed.
