I've seen many older "issue" statements re: non-supported NVIDIA =
graphics systyems.
For instance, on my Dell Precision 5820 Workstation, Ubuntu 16.04 =
interfered with window manager logins so that it would always rest =
mid-logion and come back to the same login input box.

Unfortunately, there is not an immediate "resolved" status nearby those =
issue postings.
So, did it also occur in some ways w/r/t FreeBSD?

Who knows what the independent-contracting CIA and computer-invasive =
NVIDIA are really up to.:

	"NVIDIA, the microprocessor manufacturer that powers much of the =
world=92s gaming and cloud needs, will also join hands in this unlikely =
partnership between a retail giant, a government funded tech firm and =
the CIA. NVIDIA will provide the deep learning training needed by the AI =
system that will process billions of images collected by SpaceNet and =
turn it into =93actionable intelligence.=94 - fropm =

	"In 2016, it was revealed that DigitalGlobe was working with CIA =
chipmaker NVIDIA and Amazon Web Services to create an AI-run satellite =
surveillance network known as Spacenet." -- from =

tempt-to-provoke-tensions-with-north-korea/>

I am avoiding their "graphics" systems.
Is its "issue list" resolved (or better-hidden, like Microsoft's  =
backdoor spyware) for newer platforms?
I suspect that not supporting drivers for older systems is a bit like =
[cr]Apple killing off the X in MacOSX, along with all non-proprietary =
security tools like Doorstop X Suite. "That would be telling." [The =
Prisoner]=20

This getting "fixed" oddly seems like "fixing a dog does to the dog... =
more like forcing manufactured issues resolution "code" closer to where =
OS security lives?
I'm not "paranoid... just experienced.

thanks,
frank
