I have installed this PPA, was usefull for me.
I was wondering if you are handling the idea to add the lastest drivers for ati, I mean the 11.4

Good work guys, though one request. Can you possibly keep Lucid's nvidia-current up to date at least until it's LTS expires?

After updating to 270.41.19 my computer doesn't boot up anymore in its graphical environment.
In dmesg I have this error message:

API mismatch: the client has the version 270.41.19, but this kernel module has the version 270.41.06. Please make sure that this kernel module and all NVIDIA driver components have the same version.

@Daniele have you run jockey and activated nvidia-current after installing 270.41.19?

i am wondering why you release the latest nvidia control panel for natty - but not the driver matching to this?

I'm with thomas d.

Why release the latest control panel, but not the driver?

<p>FWIW, the driver itself (275.09.07) is available in the <a href="http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/xorg-edgers">xorg-edgers ppa</a>.</p>

hi all,
I was wondering if will be more updates for lucid? I mean that the lastest version of fglrx is 2:8.801 and it was uploaded on (2010-12-18).

I really appreciate the work that you are doing with this PPA, as you know, is a bit hard install the propietary ati drivers by the common way.

thanks in advance
