NVIDIA Display Driver 260.19.36

January 31st, 2011 by Crusader

Thanks to Ant for pointing out that NVIDIA released a new display driver, build 260.19.36 (one day I’ll figure out what drives graphics chipset/card manufacturer naming schemes):

  • Updated the NVIDIA kernel module to ensure that all system memory allocated by it for use with GPUs or within user-space components of the NVIDIA driver stack is initialized to zero. A new NVIDIA kernel module option, InitializeSystemMemoryAllocations, allows administrators to revert to the previous behavior.
  • Fixed a bug that caused X servers version 1.9 and higher to crash when color index overlays were enabled.
  • Fixed a bug that caused pixel value 255 to be treated as transparent in color index overlays.
