Downloader and installer for the nVidia driver package (295.33)

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 GPUs:
        GeForce GTX 680
        GeForce GT 630M
        GeForce GT 620
* Fixed a VDPAU bug where decoding some H.264 streams would cause hardware errors on lower-end products,
  resulting in corruption and poor performance.
* Fixed a bug that caused DisplayPort audio to stop working after monitors are hotplugged on GeForce GT 520.
* Improved compatibility with recent Linux kernels.
* Fixed a behavior change that prevented ConnectedMonitor from being usable with DisplayPort connectors.
* Marked the GVO Clone mode NV-CONTROL attributes:

    NV_CTRL_GVO_DISPLAY_X_SCREEN
    NV_CTRL_GVO_X_SCREEN_PAN_X
    NV_CTRL_GVO_X_SCREEN_PAN_Y

    as deprecated. They will be removed in a future release. To display an X screen over GVO,
    it is recommended to use GVO with MetaModes, instead.
* Fixed a bug that caused DisplayPort devices to not be listed in Xorg.*.log. For example,
  if only DisplayPort devices are attached, the log file would contain
    Quote:
    (--) NVIDIA(0): Connected display device(s) on NVIDIA GPU at PCI:2:0:0
    (--) NVIDIA(0): none
* Added support for 3D Vision ready displays that have a NVIDIA 3D Vision infrared emitter
  built inside the panel itself.
* Fixed a bug that caused OpenGL applications to crash with some libc versions, such as eglibc 2.15.
* Fixed a bug that caused HDMI audio to stop working on AppleTV devices when an X server was started.
