Written by Michael Larabel in NVIDIA on 17 June 2008 at 09:49 AM EDT. 15 Comments
NVIDIA has released the 173.14.09 binary display driver. However, support for the GeForce GTX 200 series is not part of the change-log, unfortunately. This driver is just a bug-fix release for the recently released 173.14.05. Though this driver does have the following fixes: aliased font rendering corruption on X.Org Server 1.5, display corruption problem driving two dual-link DFPs with the Quadro FX 1700, a regression that prevented the X driver from starting on some GeForce FX/6/7 series, and fixing a locale-interaction issue in the nvidia-settings parser. In addition, this release also has preliminary support for the Linux 2.6.26 kernel. To download the x86 and x86_64 NVIDIA Linux drivers, click here and here, respectively.

Update: NVIDIA has released a 177.13 Beta driver, which adds GTX 200 series support. It can be found here.
