You might remember there was a problem with nvidia 340xx drivers about three weeks ago. After that the developers decided to drop the 340xx drivers from the arch repositories:
I really do not understand this. My computer does not work with nouveau drivers (although the developers “hope” so) from the beginning of this year (linux versions above 4.10).
So I decided at last to install linux-lts. But I cannot boot linux-lts, the booting gets stuck with a blinking cursor, which indicates that for my hardware the nouveau is causing problems. On the other hand, nvidia will drop support for 340xx at the end of the year, so a solution is clearly needed for me. My questions:
- anybody knows from where I could get last nvidia 340xx-lts driver to make my linux-lts work?
- any ideea about a replacement of the old video (GeForce 405) card with a newer one (if anybody has/had the same problem)?
