NVIDIA Gets Happy, Puts Out Two New Blobs

Filed under
Hardware
Software

NVIDIA has put out two new proprietary Linux driver updates. One of the drivers is a pre-release in the 270.xx series that largely is after bug-fixing, but the second driver is more interesting as it's the first (development) NVIDIA Linux driver release in the 275.xx series. The NVIDIA 275.09 beta driver brings new features.

The less-interesting 270.41.19 pre-release fixes a bug in the VDPAU presentation queue that could cause temporary hangs, a bug when capturing SDI video, a case where the OpenGL driver could leak resources, a Linux kernel interface compatibility problem, and two SLI initialization bugs. This stable pre-release can be downloaded via their FTP server.

The more interesting release pushed out yesterday afternoon is the NVIDIA 275.09 beta driver for Linux.
