Nvidia 304.60 has been released! Install in Ubuntu (12.10), LinuxMint & Fedora
Nvidia 304.60 has been released, the new release comes with some new features, improvements and bug fixes.
What`s new in Nvidia 304.60?
- Fixed a bug that caused the X server to crash if a display was put into DPMS off mode and subsequently reenabled while screen transformations are in use.
- Fixed a bug that caused the X Resize and Rotate extension to be enabled when Xinerama is enabled. These two X extensions are incompatible and having them both enabled can confuse window managers such as KDE’s kwin. RandR is now correctly disabled when Xinerama is enabled.
- Fixed a bug causing OpenGL stereo applications to not work properly when using passive stereo modes 5 through 9 on Quadro Fermi and newer GPUs.
- Updated nvidia-settings to report Dedicated GPU Memory (i.e., the memory dedicated exclusively to the GPU) and Total GPU Memory (i.e., Dedicated GPU Memory plus any TurboCache(TM)-accessible system memory) separately on the GPU information page.
- Added reporting of the current utilization of Dedicated GPU Memory to the GPU information page of nvidia-settings.
- Added support for the “Backlight” RandR output property for configuring the brightness of some notebook internal panels.
- Fixed a bug that prevented the Ubuntu Unity launcher panel from unhiding: https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bug/1057000
- Fixed a bug that caused nvidia-installer to sometimes attempt to write a log file in a nonexistent directory.
- Fixed a bug that caused incorrect input transformation after resizing an NVIDIA X screen with xserver ABI 12 (xorg-server 1.12) or newer.
- Fixed a bug that caused GLX to leak memory when Xinerama is enabled.
