How to deal with experimental repos on Siduction
« on: 2018/09/17, 02:50:58 »
Hey guys whats'up?

Guys, what is the best way to deal with 396.x NVIDIA drivers on Siduction?

I have alrealdy installed everything i need from the experimental repository (including the driver), but i dont know if now i disable this experimental repo or if i keep it and try to configure the apt to give preference to the SID repo, but keeping the experimental enabled (making kind of a hibrid Debian). Or maybe there something totally diferent i should do? What is the right way to do with this in Siduction keeping the max of stability?

Thank you guys!

For keeping max stability, try not to use experimental in the first place. If you feel the need to do so, deativate it after installing stuff. Just my 2 cents.

I don't have a problem with experimental as of yet, all my games play ;)

apt update; apt install nvidia-driver nvidia-driver-libs nvidia-settings nvidia-smi nvidia-kernel-dkms -t experimental

I either give too many fucks or no fucks at all, it's like I cannot find a middle ground for a moderate fuck distribution, it's like what the fuck
