    Default NVIDIA 275.19 Linux Driver Published

    Phoronix: NVIDIA 275.19 Linux Driver Published

    While NVIDIA is already in the middle of working on the 280 driver series and there's been a public beta of that, this Friday morning NVIDIA has released a new 275.xx stable release. While this release is still tagged in the 275 series, it does contain a few worthwhile fixes and new hardware enablement...

    Default And still no optimus support...

    Too bad, the major part of systems using this chip also uses an Optimus setup, which makes the official driver almost unusable.

    Someone on NVNews did find a workaround for making Nvidia acceleration with Optimus work. I don't have a link, though.

    Default Slower boot

    On my Intel Core i7 920 PC with nVidia GTX260 graphic hardware, I obtain the impression that with this updated driver the boot time is a bit slower. I've seen this on both 64-bit openSUSE-11.3 KDE-4.4.4 and 64-bit openSUSE-11.4 KDE-4.6.0 partitions on same PC. After one waits sufficient time for the boot, the functionality appears ok.

    Driver installed from .run file.

    I've read of a possible work around, which while it may not make Optimus work, does allow better use with the nVidia hardware, called 'bumblebee'. Is that what you are referring to ? http://linux-hybrid-graphics.blogspo...bumblebee.html

    I don't have Optimus hardware myself ... I've read of it and noted some users are not particularly happy about the support
