    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.

                      Thanks deanjo. I'm using Ubuntu Intrepid and the nvidia-glx package is at 96.43.05. :P I wonder why 100.x isn't in intrepid.

                      I just checked and apparently I should be using nvidia-glx-173 with my Quadro FX 1100. I had swapped it out for an old ATI card because the black windows made it unusable.

                        I would recommend using the 173.14.15's for your Quadro.

                          Hi all.

                          After upgrading from 177.82 to 180.22 my suspend stop working correctly and my compiz-fusion started to crash the hole system (Debian Lenny nvidia 9300gs. Downgraded to 177.82 and all works again.

                            Well, on my MSI MegaBook GX600P-208NL with GeForce 8600M GT onboard I wasn't very successful with s2ram using 177.82 drivers. Hope freshly released version will bring major improvement in this matter.
