Downloader and installer for the nVidia driver package (390.25)

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.

Please be aware that recompiling the module by dkms can take several minutes depending on your system. Dkms will halt the start of the graphical system till compilation is finished.

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

- Use the legacy GLX library

- Update to 390.25

 * Added support for the following GPUs:
        GeForce GTX 1060 5GB
        Quadro P620
 * Fixed a regression introduced in 390.12 that prevented displays
   from working normally when running multiple X screens with
   emulated overlays.
 * Fixed a regression introduced in 390.12 that caused occasional
   hangs and hard lockup messages in the system log when screen
   transformations are in use.
 * Added new application profile settings, "EGLVisibleDGPUDevices"
   and "EGLVisibleTegraDevices", to control which discrete and
   Tegra GPU devices, respectively, may be enumerated by EGL.
   See the "Application Profiles" appendix of the driver README
   for more details.
 * Corrected the SONAME of the copy of the libnvidia-egl-wayland
   library included in the .run installer package to
   libnvidia-egl-wayland.so.1. The SONAME had previously been
   versioned incorrectly with the full version number of the
 * Updated nvidia.ko to veto the ACPI_VIDEO_NOTIFY_PROBE event
   on kernels that allow the handler for this event to be
   overridden, to improve interaction between the NVIDIA driver
   and acpi_video on display hotplug events.
 * Updated the SLI Mosaic layout page in the nvidia-settings
   control panel to support topologies with up to 32 displays.
 * Fixed a bug that prevented Xinerama Info from being handled
   properly in SLI or Base Mosaic layouts with more than
   24 displays.
 * Updated the X driver's composition pipeline (used for
   rotation, warp and blend, transformation matrices, etc) to
   also support stereo.
 * Added an OpenGL stereo preview feature to the screen page in
 * Fixed a bug where GetTexSubImage() would read incorrect data
   into a pixel buffer object when supplied with a target of
   GL_TEXTURE_1D_ARRAY and a non-zero yoffset value.
 * Added support for generic active stereo with in-band
   DisplayPort signaling. The X configuration option
   "InbandStereoSignaling" is deprecated in favor of this stereo
   mode. See "Appendix B. X Config Options" in the README for
   more information.
 * Modified the driver to avoid restoring framebuffer console
   modes on virtual reality head-mounted displays.
 * Fixed a bug which could cause X servers that export a Video
   Driver ABI earlier than 0.8 to crash when running X11
   applications which call XRenderAddTraps().
