So, your beloved NVIDIA blobs survived to the latest X.org 1.20 ?

Just curious, a response lengthily of a sentence will be fine.

Not sure what changes showed up in the Nouveau driver, but I can now use it to play videos full-screen. And that's just in time to take over from the nVidia "official" driver (INTTF patched version 304.137) which suddenly stopped working with the X.org ABI change...

All good here. (But please don't take this as a criticism against anyone. All good here, and that's good enough for me.)

If it works for you, great!

In the past Nvidia has always updated their drivers to meet whatever the challenge and we will probably see new and/or patched drivers released this coming week.

390.59 has added support for X.Org xserver ABI 24 (xorg-server 1.20)

Nvidia has released a new "long lived branch" driver, version 390.59, which supports, among many others, the GT-705, 710, 720 and 730. It can be found at, http://www.nvidia.com/Download/drive...x/134262/en-us

Release highlights,

Quote:
Added support for the following GPUs:
GeForce GTX 1050 with Max-Q Design
Quadro P3200
Quadro P4200
Added support for X.Org xserver ABI 24 (xorg-server 1.20).
Improved nvidia-bug-report.sh to check for kern.log which is the default kernel log-file location for many Debian-based Linux distributions.
Fixed a bug which could cause X servers that export a Video Driver ABI earlier than 0.8 to crash when running X11 applications which call XRenderAddTraps().

@cwizardone

You are kind to tell me which one are the series with last support for 32-bit systems?

IIRC, the 390 series is the last to support 32-bit.
However, the 64-bit drivers will continue to provide 32-bit compatibility libraries for those who need them.

FWIW, the 390.59 driver is running perfectly with xorg-1.20, in -current with the DUSK-4.16.9 kernel.

It never fails ...

I install a new Kernel along with the latest NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-XXX.YY.run blob and soon after, NVidia releases an update

I am all set to install NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.59.run along with 4.4.132 but I've got work work to finish before I can reboot.

Tomorrow is another day, Scarlet ...

I haven't been paying attention. What are the advantages of this Dusk kernel?

Dave's Unofficial Slackbuilt Kernels

https://dusk.idlemoor.tk/

The the 4.16.xx series provides improved support for the AMD Ryzen and newer Intel CPUs (as did the now EOL 4.15. series).

Just now got around to installing the latest 390.59 driver. Steam is back in operation.

From a technical perspective, there isn't any advantage to using the DUSK kernel instead of compiling your own.

From a personal standpoint, however, if the prospect of downloading the kernel sources and compiling is daunting to you, then perhaps it is advantageous to download a precompiled kernel, if the stock Slackware kernel is unsatisfactory.

Really, the choice is up to you.
