The problem is that this driver drop support for cards from the geforce6/7
So we need to create a separate branch of driver as 304xx and to replace
the main serie with that for compatibility.
Then we will introduce latest stable driver with a new nvidia-latest serie.
That way geforce6/7 users will not update to a driver that doesn't support
Hi Nicolas, and thanks. It makes sense to limit the availability of the
new driver to systems with compatible cards. I'm actually kind of
surprised that hardware isn't already taken into account when
determining package availability, but I'm still learning.
We will also rework the driver a little, so that's the remaining
the problem, then there will be a package review.
Thank makes sense, too. What kind of ballpark would be reasonable to
guess at? Maybe a few/several months or so, or longer?
