nVidia 465 packages available in non-free/testing repo for Lx 4.2

Hello,

  • OpenMandriva Lx version:

Lx 4.2

  • Desktop environment (KDE, LXQT…):

ALL

  • Description of the issue (screenshots if relevant):

Issue is we need users to test nvida packages or there is no reason to build them. Community distribution of Linux folks. Community has to do things or they won’t get done. There are no employee’s.

  • Relevant information (hardware involved, software version, logs or output…):

nvidia 465.27-1 packages available in Lx 4.2 non-free/testing repo.

The packages will install here. Don’t know if they will work with the kernel 5.11.12 available in Lx 4.2. Would appreciate if some users could test this and report.

Why don’t I test this? Because I do not have nvidia hardware.

To install in Lx 4.2 x86_64:

$ sudo dnf install nvidia --enablerepo rock-testing-x86_64-non-free

To install in Lx 4.2 znver1:

$ sudo dnf install nvidia --enablerepo rock-testing-znver1-non-free

just see this for any version nvidia before
( see for long term support LTS 3 years / production is only 1 year )
