[News] New NVIDIA Driver Released for Linux

Hash: SHA1

NVIDIA Releases 177.82 Linux Driver

,----[ Quote ]
| NVIDIA had released their 177.80 display driver more than a month ago, but 
| arriving today is a point release update to this binary Linux driver. The 
| NVIDIA 177.82 driver adds support for several new GPUs, a mobile power 
| management fix, a mobile hot-key switching fix, and a Firefox 3.0 image 
| corruption issue. The new ASICs supported in the NVIDIA 177.82 driver include 
| the Quadro NVS 450, Quadro FX 370 LP, Quadro FX 5800, Quadro FX 4800, Quadro 
| FX 470, and Quadro CX.       



NVIDIA 177.80 Display Driver

| For those using NVIDIA graphics on Linux, Solaris, or FreeBSD operating
| systems, head on over to the NVIDIA UNIX Portal to download the latest driver
| release. The FreeBSD and Solaris drivers ship with a similar set of changes.
| NVIDIA's two legacy drivers -- the 1.0-71xx and 1.0-9xx series -- have yet to
| be updated with support for X.Org 7.4, Linux 2.6.27, or any of these new
| bug-fixes.


NVIDIA 177.76 Display Driver

,----[ Quote ]
| Last month we saw the release of the NVIDIA 177.67 Linux driver along with
| the 177.67 beta driver, and a 177.70 driver. In the fourth NVIDIA Linux
| driver release in under a month's time, the 177.76 display driver has been
| released. This too looks like another beta driver with more fixes in store
| for those with GeForce or Quadro hardware owners.


The Multi-Seat Display Manager

,----[ Quote ]
| For those interested in configuring a multi-seat system with multiple
| monitors, keyboards, and mice, they can build the Multi-Seat Display Manager
| from git, use the provided Debian packages, or try out their Ubuntu 8.04
| LiveCD with MDM pre-installed.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
