Release Highlights

  • Fixed a bug that could cause display flickering after setting some scaling configurations.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the status bar on the "PowerMizer" and "X Server XVideo Settings" pages in the nvidia-settings control panel from being updated when settings were changed by another NV-CONTROL client.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause some UI elements to be duplicated in the nvidia-settings control panel following a VT switch on X server configurations with multiple NVIDIA X screens.
  • Changed the default PCIe interrupt delivery method from virtual-wire to MSI. Note that if the NVIDIA Linux driver fails to initialize with an error indicating that it is not receiving interrupts, MSI can be disabled by setting the module parameter "NVreg_EnableMSI=0" when loading the NVIDIA kernel module.
  • Removed support for Linux 2.4 kernels. The NVIDIA Linux driver now requires Linux 2.6.9 or later.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the creation of a mode via RandR with the same name as a previously created mode, even after the previous mode had been deleted.
  • Fixed a bug in nvidia-settings that caused GTK+ theme colors to be ignored for some UI elements.
  • Fixed a bug that caused nvidia-settings to write hostname-based color correction settings to the .nvidia-settings-rc configuration file, even when the "Include X Display Names in the Config File" option was unset. This could lead to a long delay when starting nvidia-settings, if a hostname saved to the configuration file failed to resolve.
  • Fixed a bug that exposed edge overlap controls on the SLI Mosaic page of nvidia-settings on edges where overlap was impossible.
  • Fixed a bug that caused some settings in the nvidia-settings control panel to be reset when reprobing displays.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause OpenGL applications that use Frame Buffer Objects (FBOs) to crash following a mode switch (e.g. changing the resolution of a display or transforming it).
  • Fixed a memory leak that could be triggered by unloading libGL before destroying all GLX contexts.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause color correction settings to be applied to the wrong display when multiple displays are unplugged and then plugged back in again.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause a spurious error message about a missing NV-GLX extension when performing indirect rendering from a GLX client with the NVIDIA client-side OpenGL libraries to a non-NVIDIA GLX server.
  • Fixed an OpenGL bug that prevented conditional rendering from the NV_conditional_render extension from correctly affecting CopyPixels.
  • Improved the rendering performance of complex gradients.
  • Added support for configuring SLI Mosaic and Base Mosaic in the "X Server Display Configuration" page of nvidia-settings.
  • Updated nvidia-installer to look for the following files:
  • /usr/lib/nvidia/alternate-install-available
  • /usr/lib/nvidia/alternate-install-present
    These files may be provided by NVIDIA driver installers other than the official .run package maintained by NVIDIA, to alert nvidia-installer to the presence or availability of an alternative installation method. See the nvidia-installer(1) manual page for more information.
  • Fixed an X driver bug where the RandR CRTC panning area and tracking area were not getting clamped to the current X screen size when the RandR CRTC transitioned from disabled to enabled.
  • Fixed an X driver bug where successful RandR X_RRSetScreenConfig requests would update the server's RandR 'lastSetTime' too far, potentially causing subsequent RandR requests to be unnecessarily rejected.
  • Fixed an X driver bug that caused GPUs to become inaccessible via the NV-CONTROL X extension when no corresponding X screens could be initialized.
  • Generate a BadMatch error when applications attempt to create GLX pixmaps using glXCreatePixmap() or glXCreateGLXPixmapWithConfigSGIX() and the pixmap's depth doesn't match that of the specified GLXFBConfig.
  • Updated nvidia-settings to explicitly specify the direction of rotation for configuring per-display rotation configuration.
  • Honor a GPU UUID as the GPU qualifier for X configuration options that allow GPU qualifiers (e.g. "MetaModes").
  • Report GPU UUIDs in the X log when verbose logging is enabled in the X server.
  • Enabled conformant glBlitFrameBuffer() scissor test behavior by default. A driver-provided application profile enables the previous non-conformant behavior for applications that load libcogl, to work around a bug in older versions of libcogl.
  • Application profiles can be added to enable the non-conformant behavior for other applications that depend upon it. See the "Known Issues" section of the README for more details.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the X server to crash when querying the current mode of disabled displays.

Additional Information

Note that many Linux distributions provide their own packages of the NVIDIA Linux Graphics Driver in the distribution's native package management format. This may interact better with the rest of your distribution's framework, and you may want to use this rather than NVIDIA's official package.

Also note that SuSE users should read the SuSE NVIDIA Installer HOWTO before downloading the driver.

Installation instructions: Once you have downloaded the driver, change to the directory containing the driver package and install the driver by running, as root, sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-325.08.run

One of the last installation steps will offer to update your X configuration file. Either accept that offer, edit your X configuration file manually so that the NVIDIA X driver will be used, or run nvidia-xconfig

Note that the list of supported GPU products is provided to indicate which GPUs are supported by a particular driver version. Some designs incorporating supported GPUs may not be compatible with the NVIDIA Linux driver: in particular, notebook and all-in-one desktop designs with switchable (hybrid) or Optimus graphics will not work if means to disable the integrated graphics in hardware are not available. Hardware designs will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, so please consult with a system's manufacturer to determine whether that particular system is compatible.

See the README for more detailed instructions.
