Indeed 3.19.49 is probably a better bet (it wasn't available when I started
using current). The 325.xx series is more a development branch (aka
"shortlived" in Nvidia's terms). I personally have had no issues with the
325.xx branch on either 14.0 and current but ultimately, it is up to the
package maintainer to choose which one he'd rather use.
