Description Gregory Beauregard 2020-11-20 15:29:27 UTC
Upstream has released https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/166883/en-us

This version fixes compatibility with Linux 5.9, enabling use of CUDA and OpenCL again and allowing those needing CUDA to get the security fixes in 5.9

those who needed modesetting to run the driver will also need the https://bugs.gentoo.org/755497 patch, which will enable moving up from the 450 series and fix blocked CUDA 11.1 ugprades

Reproducible: Always
