Re: [Public WebGL] Chrome stable linux



For me, Firefox seems to be running just great on this setup...that is,
until my driver gets blacklisted.    :-(

Is it necessary to blacklist all of the 260.19.* releases?

The trouble is that nVidia's latest Linux driver is 260.19.36 (which is
just a couple of weeks old).  I'm seeing problems in 260.19.12 (which is
from last October...and then, only in Chrome).  Users have no upgrade
path.  Is there an older driver that's not blacklisted?

Has anyone talked to nVidia?
