Replaced the build system for the NVIDIA kernel modules and updated the installer package and nvidia-installer to use the new build system and kernel module source code layout. For more information about the new build system and layout, see the README document at:
Fixed a bug that prevented more than one RandR output from sharing user-added modes.
Fixed a bug that caused application-specified swap intervals to be ignored on some screens when using Xinerama.
Fixed a bug that caused user-supplied RandR modes with nonsensical combinations of the +HSync, -HSync, +VSync, and -VSync flags to corrupt the mode list.
Added support to make an OpenGL 3.0 and above context current without making current to any drawable.
Known Issues with this release:
* Resuming from suspend may not be reliable on GeForce GTX 9xx boards in some configurations.
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-x86-355.06.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.
