It was just yesterday that we at Phoronix told you to be on the lookout for a new NVIDIA Linux driver. Well, a new Linux driver is now available. The NVIDIA 100.14.23 display driver features improved hotkey switching support for some Lenovo notebooks, improved modesetting for Quadro GPUs, fixed a problem with Compiz after VT-switching, and improved interaction with Barco and Chi Mei 56" DFPs. The improved mode-setting affects the Quadro FX 370, FX 570, FX 1700, NVS 320M, FX 570M, FX 1600M, NVS 290, NVS 140M, NVS 130M, NVS 135M, and FX 360M. We do not yet know if the NVIDIA 100.14.23 display driver fixes any of the issues that were brought up in the 100.14.19 display driver. Once we know more information or have benchmarks to share, we will pass them along. If you need technical assistance, stop by the Phoronix Forums. The NVIDIA driver can be downloaded from the NVIDIA website.
