Need latest nvidia driver (340.104)

This driver is not in the repository. It is new - 9/19/2017.

How long do these generally take to appear in the repo?

Or, to whom do I address this notice for best results?

Thanks.
MR

It will probably first appear here:

I'm not sure why you need the latest of the latest (for legacy cards).

<a href="http://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/123703/en-us" title="http://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/123703/en-us">http://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/123703/en-us</a>

Not sure how safe it is if you install it yourself.

Cannot answer your other questions.

Regards.

I didn't see anything about it in their update notes, and they're not
planning to address it henceforth. I'm disappointed (duh) since their
Windows driver works just fine. I really don't acre to shlep the
windows HDD around with me for those few instances where I want to
hook up an external monitor through the DP.

Thanks.

Hi,

I didn't follow this thread, assuming you shouldn't have done this
already, consider to switch to the FLOSS nouveau driver and if you still
should experience this issue, to report it upstream, or if it should be
already reported, to add a comment to the existing bug report.
