NVIDIA 169.07 Linux Display Driver
Phoronix: NVIDIA 169.07 Linux Display Driver
Just in time for the holidays, NVIDIA has released a new Linux display driver, which is a stable version of their previous 169.04 beta last month. In addition, the new NVIDIA 169.07 Linux driver has a few changes, while most of the release highlights were already found in the 169.04 release. We are preparing additional Linux tests with this new driver, but for right now we have the details on this proprietary display driver.
Hi. Its a non-issue, but could you correct the 'release notes and download link' to 'NVIDIA website' in the last para of the article to the 169.07 page (it points to 169.04 as I see at the moment .) Thanks, and happy holidays.
As with the previous beta, i still have texture corruption in Unreal Tournament engine based games like Americas Army 2.5 and Unreal Tournament 2004.
i have noticed a performence loss in glxgears didnt have the time to test games:
i have a 7950GT
100.14.19 : around 18000 fps
169.07 : around 15000 fps
Did anyone else notice this? My UT2004 is running perfectly without any hitches with the 100.14.19-driver. I'll skip the 169.04 driver, if its a widespread bug among other systems.

I have a strange problem with this driver and my 8800gts.The problem is that the gpu fan is very noisy.I have go back to 169.04 which is very stable for my card.
The "fan at full throttle" thing is a known bug (#379270), Nvidia are already working on it.
