NVidia Strikes Again

At work I have been progressing nicely with converting the imaging station from Ubuntu to Debian. On my list of things to test is the proprietary NVidia drivers. Fortunately only two workstations need that support. Everything else has AMD or Intel video.

I discovered the 304 series of drivers no longer are supported by the upstream NVidia folks. There is no support beyond Xorg 1.19.

Debian 10 includes Xorg 1.20. That means no 304 drivers in Debian 10.

Of the two workstations, one workstation needs the 304 drivers.

I will test the 340 drivers. We also have an older AMD card to test.

I do not like NVidia and haven’t for many years.
