Unofficial NVidia bugzilla?

September 2, 2012

The idea for this really comes from the Unofficial ATI bugzilla at which appears to be successful. For NVidia issues the official way has been to email or the unofficial method of posting on and hoping for a reply. Unfortunately I don’t find forums terribly useful for bug reports and the search functionality is less than ideal for issues.

I’ve been thinking of spinning up a Bugzilla instance for an Unofficial NVidia Bugzilla and inviting all distros to use it as well as the NVidia Linux engineers. But obviously I’d need some user/developer interest in this.

Would you use it?

    I use nvidia drivers on Gentoo and Fedora, both at home and at work. Fortunately, I haven’t found too much bugs before, but if I would, I’d definitely like an issue tracker of any kind.

    I would consider using it. I really, really hate having to just send my bug reports into a black hole and not being able to search for existing issues or be able to keep track of them. I don’t understand why nvidia doesn’t already have a bugzilla (or something like it) open to the public

    As an enduser I would have use of it, to find if I can upgrade to a new kernel and know that my graphics card will work with the closed source driver.

    This sounds really good! Been using nvidia along time, and just now I have been having some troubles and found out that nvnews is a really terrible place.

    Anything that would help keep suspend/hibernate from breaking so much is welcom to me.

    I don’t use the blob driver (or any nvidia GPUs for that matter) but this seems like a great idea.
