Downloader and installer for the nVidia driver package (295.40)
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:
* Closed a security vulnerability which made it possible for
attackers to reconfigure GPUs to gain access to arbitrary
system memory. For further details,
* Fixed a bug that caused DisplayPort devices to occasionally
fail to turn back on after the system is resumed from suspend.
* Added a ModeValidation X configuration option token,
"AllowNon3DVisionModes", to allow modes that are not optimized
for NVIDIA 3D Vision to be validated on 3D Vision monitors.
* Added support for the following GPUs:
GeForce GT 635M
