Downloader and installer for the nVidia driver package (295.09) (beta)
Installing these packages can take a long time. These packages will automatically download the NVIDIA driver (+-50MB) from
http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64 or http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86 and save it in /usr/src.
The driver and libraries will be installed after the download.
The installer will install the nVidia files the Bumblebee way. The libraries will NOT interfere with any other libraries of a distribution and will be installed in a seperate nvidia directory. Usage will be controlled by editing the ld.so.conf(.d) and/or using the "ModulePath" var in xorg.conf.
You can also download the NVIDIA package yourself and copy it to the /usr/src directory. The installer will then skip the download part and just install the driver and libraries the Bumblebee way.
These rpms can be used by normal and Optimus enabled nVidia systems.
New in this release:
* Added support for the following GPU:
* Tesla X2090
* Fixed an OpenGL bug where using display lists on Fermi-based GPUs could result in missing rendering in some cases.
* Fixed an OpenGL bug that caused incorrect rendering when using framebuffer objects to render to 16-bit color textures with alpha.
* Fixed two bugs that caused sporadic application crashes in some multi-threaded OpenGL applications.
* Fixed a bug that caused creating OpenGL 4.2 contexts with glXCreateContextAttribsARB to fail.
* Fixed a bug that caused OpenGL to print
Xlib: extension "NV-GLX" missing on display ":0".
when used with a non-NVIDIA implementation of the GLX X extension.
* Implemented color depth 30 (10 bits per component) support for GeForce 8 series and higher GPUs.
* Implemented support for constraining cursors to the visible regions of connected displays; see the "ConstrainCursor" X Option in the README for details.
* Fixed a bug that would cause Firefox to abort on pages with Flash when layers acceleration was force-enabled on Linux and Solaris.
