I was on --Current, which is what this thread is about.

Now after a kernel panic with the new --Current kernel, I reinstalled 14.2 and I'm back to where I started.

Sorry if I was confusing.

Cool! Pat included the commit ID in the version number so it's easy to know the exact commit you're running We had been talking about that here.

I realize this thread is about current but it may be worth knowing that I built 4.14.12 on 14.2 Multilib and then installed the nVidia beta 390 driver from nvidia's installer without a hitch.... all runs fine. So I'd wager it's unlikely there are any serious issues on Current.

I think that would be a safe bet. On my own -current multilib system I am running the latest kernel available as of January 15th:

Code:
andrew@illium~$ uname -rm
4.14.13 x86_64
which I always upgrade cautiously as I use the NVidia binary driver. The following NVidia driver release version runs beautifully on my system with this kernel:

Code:
andrew@illium~$ nvidia-smi --query-gpu=driver_version --format=csv,noheader
384.111
Lots of fun riding the -current waves
