I’m trying to figure out the nvidia numbering process. Seems like the dev driver version right now is 270.41.19 - but the non-dev version is up to 275.09.07 - is there any relationship between the numbers - i.e. are the changes made to the dev version of the driver ever rolled into some version of the non-dev version ? or are there more pervasive difference like extended debug info etc ?
I ask because ever since switching to the dev driver, my computer’s graphics performance under gnome is noticeably worse. i’m running ubuntu 11.04 with gnome classic desktop.
