X.Org Server 1.20 released!!
 
After what has been too long a wait, 1.20 has finally been released! I downloaded the source and built it, and am happily running on 1.20 with NVIDIA driver release 396.24!

w00t!!

Actually, I beat him by about 2 hours. It was easy enough to compile it. Just a little impatient, I guess:)

EDIT:Sorry, didn't read the timestamp close enough. You're right, he did beat me. Oops.

I have mirrored the update but not installed yet, just waiting to see if there is any blowback. Only potential damage so far looks like I will have to install NVidia 396.24 but that is downloaded and ready for testing...

I haven't had an issue yet but I am running stock AMD video..

kjhambrick 05-11-2018 11:45 AM

for the record, I rebuilt and reinstalled xrdp-0.9.6-x86_64-1_SBo and xorgxrdp-0.2.6-x86_64-1_SBo on Slackware64 14.2+current against the new X.Org Server 1.20.

It compiled and runs just fine -- iow, I can run the Slackware64 14.2+current KDE4 Desktop remotely via RDesktop where ever I can fire up and RDP Client.

Thanks to the dev team !

And now finally updated here with absolutely zero issues seen :) Binary blob NVidia 396.24 running nicely...

orbea 05-16-2018 09:12 PM

I've updated and found that with nouveau using DRI3 and the modesetting xorg driver all opengl programs (glxgears for example) no longer work and just give me a black screen that proceeds to do nothing. Using xf86-video-nouveau with DRI3 doesn't have this issue, but has several other deal breaking issues (Some of them are old) and xf86-video-nouveau and DRI2 works fine so far. I have not tested nvidia's driver and am not interested in running the blob.

Unfortunately DRI3 has provided a not insignificant performance boost in the past...

How do you get that driver to show up on a search,, the latest I can see is 390.59 whenever I try it?

The latest "long lived branch" driver, version 390.59, should work just fine, but you can find the "short lived branch" 396.24 driver here,

Interesting Q

Something didn't get updated on NVidia's Site this time.

The following command ( :) I believe I got it from cwizardone :) ) does not yet report 390.59:

Code:

# basename $(curl -s http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/latest.txt |gawk '{ print $2 }')

NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.48.run

That happened once before but after a few days they 'fixed' it :)

Nvidia's list of Unix drivers shows the 390.59 as the latest "long lived branch," and the 396.24 as the latest "short lived branch" (as of sometime yesterday). From there you just click on the version number that floats your boat.

The version number shown for the latest Nvidia driver on Distrowatch.com is often, and for long periods of time, not correct.

dTd: Both the long-lived 390.xx and the short-lived 396.xx branch work well on the 4.16.x kernel branch. Just pick one which suits your fancy, and you should experience no issues. I myself have tested both of these on xorg 1.20 and both work flawlessly.
