Since Solus is meant to be a desktoporiented OS I think that more attention should be focused to new graphicsdrivers for nvidiacards.
There ar alot off us gamers that need somewhat recent driver to get the most ot of our games and gamingexperience.
Specificly better support for DXVK. There are some huge titels out that need 396.18 or later to runt, since they use the vulkan api.
And there are alot games coming that need as much and good vulkansupport as possible to run optimized.
ATM the nvidia 396.24 is the one to use and that works best.
So if you could make it avaliable in the repos as soon as possible, alot of us will be very greatful ! :)
Yes, you can build and install them your self and there's also users who have packaged them for easy install.
But they don't stick during kernelupdates and it can cause sever problems and stability issues.
So something in the repos that are usuable would be really nice.
