Warning Linux 5.9
« on: 2020/10/31, 13:15:56 »
With the release of linux kernel 5.9.3 it will become available without the need of experimental repo.
As a warning, nvidia will may not work, vbox has to be version 6.1.16 and vmware need to be patched.

Breaking news: Download NVIDIA Driver R455 for Linux Kernel 5.9+

"+", they're very optimistic. ;-)
