    Default Nvidia beta driver in the nvidia repository

    Hi all, recently I learned that there is now a beta driver available in the nvidia repository in the nvidia-compute-G06 package.
    Now I do not mind this at all, but I do think that the description of the package should specify that this is a beta driver.

    I also wonder why there is a beta driver for a pretty crucial piece of hardware in the repositoriy for a stable distrobution?

    Does anyone know why nvidia did this?

    Default AW: Nvidia beta driver in the nvidia repository

    I think, the maintainer Stefan Dirsch will not read here, maybe its better to ask on the mailing list?

    After installing Nvidia proprietary drivers you cannot call your system "stable".
