Added support for: Quadro FX 290, Quadro FX 370, Quadro FX 570, Quadro FX 1700; improved GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap out-of-memory handling, fixed a performance regression on GeForce 8, improved compatibility with recent X.Org X servers, further improved interaction with ATi RS480/482 based mainboards.
The latest Version, 1.0-9755, of NVIDIA graphic drivers for linux was released with support for Quadro FX 4600 and Quadro FX 5600 and for NVIDIA SLI with GeForce 8800, Quadro FX 4600, and Quadro FX 5600. Download links within.
A pledge was started by David Nielsen back in November to raise $10,000 to be given to the Project Nouveau developers, no-strings. His pledge has completed and hoping that people actually pony up the dough then this effort from the Linux community to solving one of their biggest problems, proprietary drivers.
A new NVIDIA Linux display driver has been released. 1.0-9746 adds support for GeForce 8800 GTS and GeForce 8800 GTX boards.
* Added initial support for GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap.
* Added new "Display Configuration" page in nvidia-settings.
* Improved workstation OpenGL performance in Xinerama.
A new NVIDIA display driver has been released which fixes the exploit reported last week. Vulnerable to a buffer overflow that allows an attacker to run arbitrary code as root. This bug can be exploited both locally or remotely (via a remote X client or an X client which visits a malicious web page). Read more for download.
NVPerfKit is a comprehensive suite of performance tools to help debug and profile OpenGL and Direct3D applications. It gives you access to low-level performance counters inside the driver and hardware counters inside the GPU itself. The counters can be used to determine exactly how your application is using the GPU, identify performance issues, and confirm that performance problems have been resolved.
The NVIDIA Binary Graphics Driver for Linux is vulnerable to a buffer overflow that allows an attacker to run arbitrary code as root. This bug can be exploited both locally or remotely (via a remote X client or an X client which visits a malicious web page).
A working proof-of-concept root exploit is included with this advisory.
