    Phoronix: NVIDIA Releases 185.18.14 Display Driver

    NVIDIA hasn't released as many Linux driver updates in May as they have in past months, but this week they are out with the NVIDIA 185.18.14 driver update. This proprietary driver for x86 and x86_64 Linux features a variety of bug-fixes, VDPAU enhancements, and better support for newer Linux kernels...

    It's nice from nvidia to release new drivers so often. But this doesn't give more games to use with those drivers.
    Could it be possible that Nvidia send one engineer or two to work with Epic on the release of UT3...

    Of course, if AMD would have the same idea for either UT3 or another game that an editor would hesitate to port because of lack of manpower...

    Bridgman, do you copy ??

      OMG, you count on AMD devs to help an already delayed game to be released? The same devs that take ages to add support for newer kernels and xorg releases.

      Hah, I don;t even bother checking the changelog for nvidia, my desktop with nvidia works so great and drivers are so flawless I just upgrade and be happy.

        Don't worry, support for new kernels is still higher priority than porting UT3 to Linux

          Michael Marley aka thefirstm already has this driver up on his PPA for Ubuntu 8.04, 8.10, 9.04, and 9.10 alpha users.

            He calls this driver 185.19.1~really185.18.14 since it's a lower version. He uses a false version so it can update. It's nice that I can have the latest nvidia driver without bricking my machine.

                    Does this mean they took a wrong turn in their development and had to take a step back to work from an older revision?

                        That's FIVE drivers in one month...not bad really. How many has AMD released?

                          Well that driver seems to have got problems with some G86 based cards where 180.37.05 works fine.

                            One a month, and a very bad one let me tell you, which slightly improves over the previous, but leaving you with the sense that by 2028 there will be a good amd driver release.
