Nvidia Linux Display Driver - x86

  • Added support for the following new GPUs:
    • GeForce GTX 260
    • GeForce GTX 280
    • GeForce 9800 GTX+
    • GeForce 9800 GT
    • GeForce 9700M GTS
    • GeForce 9500 GT
    • GeForce 8100P
    • nForce 780a SLI
    • nForce 750a SLI
    • Quadro FX 770M
    • Quadro NVS 160M
    • Quadro NVS 150M
  • Improved support for RENDER masks, as well as RENDER repeating modes and transformations, for video memory pixmaps.
  • Added accelerated support for RENDER convolution filters for video memory pixmaps on GeForce 8, 9 and GTX GPUs.
  • Improved support for RENDER operations with the same source and destination; this should performance in some situations, e.g. when dragging Plasma applets in KDE4.
  • Improved GPU video memory management coordination between the NVIDIA X driver and OpenGL implementation; this should improve performance with e.g. the KDE4 OpenGL compositing manager.
  • Added an ´AllowSHMPixmaps´ X configuration option, which can be used to prevent applications from using shared memory pixmaps; the latter may cause some optimizations in the NVIDIA X driver to be disabled.
  • Fixed a text rendering performance regression that affected GeForce 6 and 7 series GPUs.
  • Fixed a regression that caused the ´Auto´ SLI X option setting to not enable SLI.
  • Fixed a bug that caused system hangs when using the NV-CONTROL interface to change GPU clock frequencies.
  • Added support for DisplayPort display devices (including 30-bit devices).
  • Resolved various stability problems on GeForce 8, 9 and GTX GPUs, as well as some GeForce 6 and 7 PCI-E GPUs.
  • Fixed a bug that resulted in GPU errors when changing the TwinView display configuration while using Compiz.
  • Further improved the error recovery paths taken in case of GPU command stream corruption.
  • Updated mode validation, in cases when no EDID is detected, such that 1024x768 @ 60Hz and 800x600 @ 60Hz are allowed, rather than just 640x480 @ 60Hz.
  • Removed an old workaround that caused incorrect Xinerama information to be reported after enabling a second TwinView display.
  • Fixed corruption when using SLI in SFR mode with OpenGL-based composite managers.
  • Fixed the subpicture component order reported by the NVIDIA X driver´s XvMC implementation.
  • Added a workaround for broken EDIDs provided by some Acer AL1512 monitors.
  • Fixed a bug that caused GLXBadDrawable errors to be generated when running more than one OpenGL application with anti-aliasing enabled on GeForce 6 and 7 GPUs, e.g. wine.
  • Fixed a problem that could result in IRQs being disabled on some multi-GPU SMP configurations.
  • Worked around cache flushing problems (on some Linux kernels) that caused corruption and stability problems.
  • Added experimental support for PCI-E MSI.
  • Fixed a bug that resulted in AGP FW/SBA settings and overrides being applied incorrectly when using the Linux kernel´s AGP GART driver.
  • Improved compatibility with recent Linux 2.6 kernels.
  • Updated the X driver to consider /sys/class/power_supply when determining the AC power state.
