Years ago I updated my Linux installation and was left with no display. I managed to remedy this situation by trying something radical, I thought. I downloaded Edgers Nvidia drivers, supposedly tweaked and debugged. And it worked!!!
Are Edgers drivers people still around and active? What is the status of Edgers these days?
xorg-edgers is an Ubuntu PPA made because aren’t updated enough, especially on aging Ubuntu version, a problem that on Arch-based don’t exist.
For the more adventurous in the AUR there are mesa-git, xorg-server-git, etc…
