  • Fixed an X server crash on X.Org xserver 1.13 when it is compiled without support for DRI2.
  • Fixed a regression that broke color controls on older X servers.
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes caused the display layout area of the Nvidia-settings control panel to be laid out incorrectly.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented panning from working correctly after a modeswitch on some X servers with support for cursor constraining.
  • Gamma ramp and colormap adjustments now apply correctly when screen transformations such as rotation and keystone correction are in use.
  • Fixed RandR per-CRTC gamma persistence across modeswitches and VT-switches.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the X server to sometimes hang in response to input events.
  • Fixed a reduction in rendering performance for core X11 rendering on certain GPUs that occurred in the 290.series of releases.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented PowerMizer from working correctly on some boards with GDDR5 memory, such as some GeForce GT 240 SKUs.
  • Fixed a bug that caused OpenGL applications to not animate properly when a rotation or a transformation was applied on some older X server versions.
  • Enabled FXAA with Unified Back Buffers.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the "Reset Hardware Defaults" button in the Display Settings page of Nvidia-settings from being activated.

Note: that many Linux distributions provide their own packages of the Nvidia Linux Graphics Driver in the distribution's native package management format. This may interact better with the rest of your distribution's framework, and you may want to use this rather than Nvidia's official package.

Also note that SuSE users should read the SuSE Nvidia Installer HOWTO before downloading the driver.

Installation instructions: Once you have downloaded the driver, change to the directory containing the driver package and install the driver by running, as root, sh ./Nvidia-Linux-x86-304.51.run

One of the last installation steps will offer to update your X configuration file. Either accept that offer, edit your X configuration file manually so that the Nvidia X driver will be used, or run Nvidia-xconfig

Note that the list of supported GPU products is provided to indicate which GPUs are supported by a particular driver version. Some designs incorporating supported GPUs may not be compatible with the Nvidia Linux driver: in particular, notebook and all-in-one desktop designs with switchable (hybrid) or Optimus graphics will not work if means to disable the integrated graphics in hardware are not available. Hardware designs will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, so please consult with a system's manufacturer to determine whether that particular system is compatible.

See the README for more detailed instructions.
