They finally support Vsync for watching hi-def stuff w/vdpau! And, apparently I'm the only person using them? The latest devnull has is 185.18.14, but I just renamed the ebuild to 185.19 and now have no more tearing in my h264 stuff! This is a heads-up in case anyone else would like to try them, I've been using them for around a week and a half with no problems...

nVidia's version numbers are confusing.

185.18.14 is actually newer than 185.19.
See Release highlights since 185.19 and Current NVIDIA Linux graphics driver releases.
