Re: [SOLVED] What is the nvidia-304xx-lts?

This particular version enjoys long-term support (LTS) from upstream(NVIDIA), including security fixes and some feature backports, especially useful for Arch users seeking for the most stable packages arround.

But you must remember that because this packages are less times updated, it may come without support for some newer cards and capabilities.

It's the legacy nvidia driver for our lts kernel (linux-lts); it has nothing to do with lts drivers provided by nvidia.
