Kernel 3.17 was due out by now, but we have another release candidate instead – rc7..
No problems with the latest VMware (10.0.3 patched) and NVIDIA (340.32) drivers, which compile and load OK.. The latest NVIDIA ‘beta’ (343.22) compiles/loads OK, but I need to test it more thoroughly with VMware, as the previous version broke the VM display on my main system..
