Thread: Linux Display Driver 180.51 released

  1. #1

    Default Linux Display Driver 180.51 released

    Release Highlights
    Added support for the following GPUs:
    GeForce 9600 GSO 512
    GeForce 9400 GT
    GeForce GTS 250
    GeForce GT 140
    GeForce GT 130
    Updated to compress its log file; running `` now produces "nvidia-bug-report.log.gz".
    Addressed a problem that could lead to intermittent hangs and system crashes on some GeForce 9 and later GPUs.
    Fixed an X server crash when viewing the website
    Fixed a DisplayPort interaction problem with power management suspend/resume events.
    Fixed rendering corruption in the OpenGL 16-bit RGB Workstation Overlay.
    Fixed a recent VDPAU regression that caused aborted playback >and hangs when decoding some H.264 clips on G84, G86, G92, G94, G96, and GT200 GPUs.
    Fixed occasional X driver memory management performance problems when a composite manager is running.
    Improved compatibility with recent Linux kernels.
    Reduced CPU usage of nvidia-smi utility for reporting Quadro Plex information.
    Fixed compatibility problem with LandMark GeoProbe.
    Fixed an interaction problem that resulted in corruption of the internal flatpanel's EDID on the Fujitsu Technology Solutions Celsius H270 notebook. Using earlier NVIDIA Linux drivers on this notebook will result in a corrupt EDID, persisting across reboots, that can only be corrected through contacting Fujitsu Technology Solutions technical support. NVIDIA and Fujitsu recommend that all Linux Celsius H270 notebook users use NVIDIA Linux graphics drivers 180.50 or later.
    Fixed a bug that could interfere with the detection of display devices attached to secondary GPUs when first starting X after cold boots.
    Fixed a problem that could result in temporary stalls when moving OpenGL application windows on GeForce 8 and later GPUs.
    Fixed a bug that prevented VGA fonts from being saved/restored correctly on GeForce 8 and later GPUs.

    I think that's a good thing, this driver has been giving me screensaver issues with mythtv.

    Maybe it's a good thing I didn't try to install it. I really dislike having graphics issues...
