Fixed a bug that caused the X server to crash if an OpenGL application tried to allocate a drawable when GPU-accessible memory is exhausted.
Fixed a bug that could cause an Xid error when terminating a video playback application using the overlay presentation queue in VDPAU.
Updated nvidia-installer to avoid recursing too deeply into kernel source trees under/usr/lib/modules, mirroring an existing restriction on recursion under /lib/modules.
Fixed a rare deadlock condition when running applications that use OpenGL in multiple threads on a Quadro GPU.
Fixed a kernel memory leak that occurred when looping hardware-accelerated video decoding with VDPAU on Maxwell-based GPUs.
Fixed a bug that caused the X server to crash if a RandR 1.4 output provided by a SinkOutput provider was selected as the primary output onX.Org xserver 1.17 and higher.
Fixed a bug that caused waiting on X Sync Fence objects in OpenGL to hang indefinitely in some cases.
Fixed a bug that prevented OpenGL from properly recovering from hardware errors orsync object waits that had timed out.
Note that many Linux distributions provide their own packages of the NVIDIA Linux Graphics Driver in the distribution's native package management format. This may interact better with the rest of your distribution's framework, and you may want to use this rather than NVIDIA's official package.
Also note that SuSE users should read the SuSE NVIDIA Installer HOWTO before downloading the driver.
Installation instructions: Once you have downloaded the driver, change to the directory containing the driver package and install the driver by running, as root, sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-340.93.run
One of the last installation steps will offer to update your X configuration file. Either accept that offer, edit your X configuration file manually so that the NVIDIA X driver will be used, or run nvidia-xconfig
Note that the list of supported GPU products is provided to indicate which GPUs are supported by a particular driver version. Some designs incorporating supported GPUs may not be compatible with the NVIDIA Linux driver: in particular, notebook and all-in-one desktop designs with switchable (hybrid) or Optimus graphics will not work if means to disable the integrated graphics in hardware are not available. Hardware designs will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, so please consult with a system's manufacturer to determine whether that particular system is compatible.
