Downloader and installer for the nVidia driver package (430.14)

Downloader and installer for the nVidia driver package

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

Release info

- Update to 430.14

* Improved performance of the Vulkan title, DiRT4.
* Added support for presentation from queue families which only
expose VK_QUEUE_COMPUTE_BIT. This improves performance of
Steam Play title, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.
* Fixed a bug that could cause the display to be driven at a low
resolution when configuring PRIME display offloading with
`nvidia-xconfig --prime`.
* Added HEVC YUV 4:4:4 decode support to the NVIDIA VDPAU driver.
* Added the new per-decoder profile capability bit
* Added new VdpYCbCrFormats VDP_YCBCR_FORMAT_Y_UV_444 and
VDP_YCBCR_FORMAT_Y_U_V_444 for accessing YUV 4:4:4 surfaces via
VdpVideoSurfaceGetBitsYCbCr() and VdpVideoSurfacePutBitsYCbCr()
in the NVIDIA VDPAU driver.
* Added support for creation of YUV 4:4:4 video surfaces in the
* Raised the minimum supported X.Org xserver version to 1.7
(video driver ABI version 6).
* Updated the NVIDIA VDPAU driver to support allocating VDPAU
video surfaces with explicit field or frame picture structure.
* Added support for the GL_NV_vdpau_interop2 OpenGL extension,
which allows VDPAU/OpenGL surface sharing with explicit field
or frame picture structure. Picture structure selection by
applications can avoid the need for implicit surface structure
conversion by the OpenGL implementation.
* Updated nvidia-installer to avoid problems with commands whose
proper functionality may be dependent on system localization
(e.g. via the LANG environment variable.) For example, some
kernel configurations may produce unusable kernel modules if
LANG is set to a language other than English.
