NVIDIA Releases Updated OSS Driver
As a late Friday night release, NVIDIA's Aaron Plattner has announced xf86-video-nv 2.1.9. Back in March the xf86-video-nv 2.1.8 driver was released with initial support for the GeForce 9600GT and today's release improves the G80 support as well as fixing some startup bugs, sorting the supported devices table, adding an option to allow validation of dual-link DVI modes, and a few other minor changes. This announcement can be read on the xorg mailing list.
For those interested in more than the obfuscated and 2D-limited "nv" driver, we mentioned in the Phoronix Forums that a new NVIDIA binary driver release will likely come next week.
