NVIDIA drivers 290.03 for Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris


Recommended Posts






Solaris-x86 (pending)

======== Release 290 Entries ========

* Fixed a bug that prevented the driver from loading on some systems with

integrated graphics.

* Fixed issues in VDPAU that prevented allocating and displaying extremely

large VdpOutputSurfaces.

* Added support for limiting heap allocations in the OpenGL driver through

the use of the __GL_HEAP_ALLOC_LIMIT environment variable. See the README

for further details.

* Added an "Accel" option to the X driver to allow disabling its use of the

graphics processing hardware. This is useful when other components, such

as CUDA, require exclusive use of the GPU's processing cores.

* Modified how the OpenGL driver allocates executable memory so it may

continue to function properly if /tmp is mounted noexec. As some fallback

allocation methods may be prohibited under SELinux policy, the driver now

supports detection of this policy as well as manual override of this

detection via the __GL_SELINUX_BOOLEANS environment variable.

* Fixed a bug that caused various GLSL built-in uniforms to not

be updated properly when calling glPopAttrib.

* Improved performance by caching compiled OpenGL shaders to disk. Added a

"GLShaderDiskCache" option to the X driver to enable/disable this


environment variables for further configuration. See the README for

further details.
