    Default NVIDIA Releases Four New Linux Drivers

    Phoronix: NVIDIA Releases Four New Linux Drivers

    The NVIDIA 180.22 Linux driver was released less than three weeks ago, but today NVIDIA has released a new 180.xx display driver update. In addition, NVIDIA has updated all three of their legacy display drivers.

    What the NVIDIA 180.25 Linux driver lacks, however, is official support for X Server 1.6.
    Thats not true, it does support xorg ABI 5 (i.e xserver 1.6) it was just missed in the changelog.

    I expected something like that, it would be quite strange if all of the legacy drivers would support xserver 1.6, but the driver for "new" cards wouldn't.

    Don't get me wrong, but I wish Nvidia would pay a little more attention the windows driver. It's a pain in the rear to find a working driver for mobile Nvidia gpus on windows, but I have never had a problem on linux.

    Talking The biggest of the bugs still here!

    Indeed the closed hardware programming manual bug is still here... sad, and AMD/Intel/Via have fixed that bug. nvidia is quite late.

    Any one tested hibernate/suspend on this version?
    On 180.22 it was messed up.

    works fine with both versions for me, and the changelog mentions fixes in this area, so if it was broken for you its worth trying again with 180.25
