NVIDIA Updates Its Old GeForce 6 Series Driver

While NVIDIA may not be doing much to help out Nouveau at the moment, they at least are supporting their Linux customers well in continuing to maintain their legacy binary Linux graphics drivers. The 304.1190 Linux driver was released today to fix a problem from NVIDIA's Nalu days.

The NVIDIA 304.1190 was uploaded this morning and it has just one official fix: it takes care of a driver crash when using WebGL in Firefox in conjunction with a GeForce 6 series graphics processor. That's it for the official changes.

This new NVIDIA 304.1190 Linux graphics driver can be downloaded from NVIDIA.com. It's not too bad though that there's just one official change with this driver update given that the legacy driver was updated last month as well. On the AMD side they have basically already abandoned supporting anything with Catalyst on Linux older than the Radeon HD 5000 series.
