381.22 Nvidia driver...anyone using it?

Just curious. Is anyone successfully running the latest Nvidia driver (381.22) on Linux ?

I  am currently on 378.13, with Houdini 16.060 on Ubuntu-Mate16.04 LTS.

IIRC 381 did cause some issues with the OpenCL device being intermittently 'lost'.

Yep, just checked and I am running 381.22 successfully with a bumblebee setup on arch and H16.

Thanks.

Marty, so you aren't running 381?

Carlo, can I ask did you do an upgrade thru 'Software & Updates" or did you do a manual install?

A search on the official Nvidia download page results in version 381.09. Not sure why 381.22 didn't come up.

but (from experience and too many wasted weekends) I am extremely nervous about doing any manual install...

then why do the upgrade? There will be no improvement most likely with the new driver.

Marty

not sure what 'Added support' means, but finally see my Titan XP card listed as having support with 381. Wasn't listed in previous versions.

fair enough - the software & updates in Ubuntu work seamlessly for me.

Installed it using the package manager, I'd only manually install it if you really needed to as I've had headaches in the past too doing it that way

What marty says is good advice - if the driver you have is working for you, and you don't have any particular need to upgrade it, leave it be. OpenGL has effectively tapped out at GL4.5, and the only things added are vendor-specific extensions which we rarely use. Lately Nvidia has had some bad driver releases, especially on the consumer side as they alter the driver support the current AAA game of the month.
