Downloader and installer for the nVidia driver package (352.63)

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.

Tips and tricks

You can use the /usr/lib/nvidia/switch-libGL.sh or /usr/lib64/nvidia/switch-libGL.sh to force the use of the nVidia libGL* libraries.
This is only necessary if an application is compiled with hard linked library paths ( the rpath option was used ).
A better solution is to start the offending application with:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/nvidia:/usr/lib/nvidia/vdpau <application_name> [ <arguments> ]

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib64/nvidia:/usr/lib64/nvidia/vdpau <application_name> [ <arguments> ]

and force the application to use the nVidia libs.

Release info

        GeForce 945M
        Quadro M5000M
        Quadro M4000M
        Quadro M3000M

 * Fixed a regression that prevented DPMS from working correctly on
   some DisplayPort displays.
 * Fixed a bug that could prevent X from starting when configured
   with multiple X screens, some of which scan out to display devices,
   and some of which do not.
 * Fixed a bug that could cause texture corruption in some OpenGL
   applications when video memory is exhausted by a combination of
   simultaneously running graphical and compute workloads.
 * Added support for X.Org xserver ABI 20 (xorg-server 1.18).
