Downloader and installer for the nVidia driver package (325.15)

Installing these packages can take a long time. These packages will automatically download the NVIDIA driver (+-70MB) 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:

- Update to 325.15

  * Added support for the following GPUs:
        GRID K340
        NVS 315
        Quadro K500M
  * Fixed a bug in the nvidia-settings control panel that could cause
    spurious messages about layout inconsistencies to be printed when
    changing the display layout while SLI is enabled.
  * Fixed a bug that could cause display flickering after setting
    some scaling configurations.
  * Fixed a bug that prevented the status bar on the "PowerMizer" and
    "X Server XVideo Settings" pages in the nvidia-settings control panel
    from being updated when settings were changed by another NV-CONTROL client.
  * Fixed a bug that could cause some UI elements to be duplicated in the
    nvidia-settings control panel following a VT switch on X server
    configurations with multiple NVIDIA X screens.
  * Changed the default PCIe interrupt delivery method from virtual-wire
    to MSI. Note that if the NVIDIA Linux driver fails to initialize with
    an error indicating that it is not receiving interrupts, MSI can be
    disabled by setting the module parameter "NVreg_EnableMSI=0" when
    loading the NVIDIA kernel module.
  * Removed support for Linux 2.4 kernels. The NVIDIA Linux driver now
    requires Linux 2.6.9 or later.
  * Fixed a bug that prevented the creation of a mode via RandR with
    the same name as a previously created mode, even after the previous
    mode had been deleted.
  * Fixed a bug in nvidia-settings that caused GTK+ theme colors to be
    ignored for some UI elements.
  * Fixed a bug that caused nvidia-settings to write hostname-based color
    correction settings to the .nvidia-settings-rc configuration file, even when
    the "Include X Display Names in the Config File" option was unset. This
    could lead to a long delay when starting nvidia-settings, if a hostname
    saved to the configuration file failed to resolve.
  * Fixed a bug that exposed edge overlap controls on the SLI Mosai page of
    nvidia-settings on edges where overlap was impossible.
  * Fixed a bug that caused some settings in the nvidia-settings control panel
    to be reset when reprobing displays.
  * Fixed a bug that could cause OpenGL applications that use
    Frame Buffer Objects (FBOs) to crash following a mode switch
    (e.g. changing the resolution of a display or transforming it).
  * Fixed a memory leak that could be triggered by unloading libGL before
    destroying all GLX contexts.
  * Fixed a bug that could cause color correction settings to be applied to
    the wrong display when multiple displays are unplugged and then
    plugged back in again.
  * Fixed a bug that could cause a spurious error message about a missing
    NV-GLX extension when performing indirect rendering from a GLX client with
    the NVIDIA client-side OpenGL libraries to a non-NVIDIA GLX server.
  * Fixed an OpenGL bug that prevented conditional rendering from
    the NV_conditional_render extension from correctly affecting CopyPixels.
  * Improved the rendering performance of complex gradients.
  * Added support for configuring SLI Mosaic and Base Mosaic in
    the "X Server Display Configuration" page of nvidia-settings.
  * Updated nvidia-installer to look for the following files:

        /usr/lib/nvidia/alternate-install-available
        /usr/lib/nvidia/alternate-install-present

  * These files may be provided by NVIDIA driver installers other than the
    official .run package maintained by NVIDIA, to alert nvidia-installer to
    the presence or availability of an alternative installation method. See
    the nvidia-installer(1) manual page for more information.
  * Fixed an X driver bug where the RandR CRTC panning area and tracking area
    were not getting clamped to the current X screen size when the RandR CRTC
    transitioned from disabled to enabled.
  * Fixed an X driver bug where successful RandR X_RRSetScreenConfig requests
    would update the server's RandR 'lastSetTime' too far, potentially causing
    subsequent RandR requests to be unnecessarily rejected.
  * Fixed an X driver bug that caused GPUs to become inaccessible via
    the NV-CONTROL X extension when no corresponding X screens could be initialized.
  * Generate a BadMatch error when applications attempt to create GLX pixmaps
    using glXCreatePixmap() or glXCreateGLXPixmapWithConfigSGIX() and the
    pixmap's depth doesn't match that of the specified GLXFBConfig.
  * Updated nvidia-settings to explicitly specify the direction of rotation
    for configuring per-display rotation configuration.
  * Honor a GPU UUID as the GPU qualifier for X configuration options that
    allow GPU qualifiers (e.g. "MetaModes").
  * Report GPU UUIDs in the X log when verbose logging is enabled in the X server.
  * Enabled conformant glBlitFrameBuffer() scissor test behavior by default.
    A driver-provided application profile enables the previous non-conformant
    behavior for applications that load libcogl, to work around a bug in
    older versions of libcogl.

  * Application profiles can be added to enable the non-conformant behavior
    for other applications that depend upon it. See the "Known Issues"
    section of the README for more details.
  * Fixed a bug that caused applications using CUDA-GL interop to
    crash when run on X servers with Xinerama enabled.
  * Fixed a bug that could prevent some double-bit ECC errors from
    being properly reported.
  * Fixed a bug which could cause a blank screen when changing house
    sync settings on Quadro Kepler GPUs with Quadro Sync boards.
  * Fixed a bug that prevented nested loops with identical loop
    conditions in GLSL shaders from terminating correctly. This could cause
    hangs in applications such as Exa PowerVIZ.
  * Fixed a bug that resulted in corrupt texels when a previously empty
    texture image was specified with glXBindTexImageEXT. In GNOME 3,
    this caused gnome-screenshot to produce garbled window screenshots.
  * Fixed a bug that caused the X server to crash when querying the current
    mode of disabled displays.
