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

UPDATE - nVidia released 390.25 as a full release follow up to the 390.12 Beta and it failed to build on my 4.14.12 kernel. I'm here to say replacing that kernel with 4.15.0 fixes that or at least it did for me. The full release driver installed without a single hiccup and both work great.
