May 1st, 2010 by Crusader

NVIDIA has released a new Linux display driver build, version 195.36.24, for 32-bit and 64-bit x86 Linux systems that utilize their graphics hardware (thanks Ant!). Changes:

  • Added support for the following GPUs:
      GeForce GTX 480
      GeForce GTX 470
      Tesla C2050
  • Fixed a problem that caused occasional red flashes in XVideo frames.
  • Added official support for xserver 1.8. The -ignoreABI option is no longer required with this version of the server.
  • Updated the “Supported NVIDIA GPU Products” list to include various supported GPUs that were missing previously.

As always, hit the README for additional info.

    Did I miss the ATi 10.4 release that added support for XOrg 7.5 and therefore Ubuntu 10.04 here?
    I went to ATi because of the releasing of spec docs, better open source driver support (not anymore it seems), and the poor 2d performance of my GF5900 that I could do little about, so bad that Sacred got about 10fps. I got the feeling NVIDIA just decided it was too old of a card and didn’t bother worrying about it, or was about to put it in the legacy driver.
    Still, if all you care about is the binary driver then NVIDIA is the best way to go IMO.

    The NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.15 driver was constantly crashing Xorg on me in Debian testing. I went back to 190.53 and everything was fine again. I think I’ll hold off on updating again for awhile.
