    Default NVIDIA 180.22 x86/x86_64 Linux Driver Released

    Phoronix: NVIDIA 180.22 x86/x86_64 Linux Driver Released

    Up to this point NVIDIA had released several betas in the 180.xx driver series that introduced VDPAU acceleration support, OpenGL 3.0, CUDA 2.1, and other Linux work. This afternoon all of these new features are finally supported by NVIDIA with the release of the first stable Linux driver in this latest series. The NVIDIA 180.22 Linux driver also officially adds in support for new GeForce and Quadro GPUs, workstation performance optimizations, glyph cache by default, improved X pixmap placement, and various bug-fixes...

    woot! I'm glad to see that all these awesome features are now in a stable branch. However...I'm gonna keep using what i'm currently using (173.14.05) because...It has everything i need, it supports my card and everything i use it for works flawlessly.

    I, on the other hand, can't wait till this new driver will hit Arch's repos Hope it will be a good release with few not very annoying bugs.

    Well, for me, this driver still borks the suspend feature on my laptop. All of the 180.* did that for me.

    Anybody got the suspend working?

    I was scared for a little while. A few of the beta releases left out the GeForce 6 series in their supported line-up, but looks like they're a go for the final release. I know my 6200 doesn't support VDPAU, but the 170-series drivers had some issues with KDE4. As soon as this new one hits the OpenSUSE repos I'll have to give it a spin.

    Should be soon, Stefan is working on it. Maybe by later today since no major changes are needed to the existing spec files.
