I got a message on my nvidia-lts [1] AUR package, with a link to an announcement [2] made by NVIDIA. It appears that some fan speed issues have been reported regarding the latest NVIDIA drivers, which can cause the graphics card to overheat and possibly get damaged. The drivers in question have been removed from the NVIDIA ftp site, and the recommendation is to switch to an version until this issue is investigated and resolved.

Additional info:
* package version(s): 195.36.08-1

This task depends upon

No problem here. My fans seem to be working just fine. I am running Archlinux 64 and have 2x 9500GT SLI with the 195.36.08-1 drivers installed. I have been reading about the nvidia issues for a couple of days and have not seen much of an announcement on so I was wondering what is being done to address this problem.

Quote: "We believe recent NVIDIA UNIX graphics drivers, 195.36.08 and 195.36.03, are also affected by this. Until the problem is resolved, we recommend that UNIX users revert to the 190.53 web release or the 195.30 public beta."
