NVIDIA 525.85.05 Linux Driver Brings Few Fixes
NVIDIA 525.85.05 for Linux is now available. Being another point release into the rather mature R525 series, there are just a few bug fixes with today's release. There is improved reliability of suspend-and-resume for UEFI systems with certain display panels, a Vulkan driver bug fix, a NVIDIA Settings control panel fix, and disabling Fixed Rate Link mode when using passive DisplayPort to HDMI dongles.
- Improved the reliability of suspend and resume on UEFI systems when using certain display panels.
- Fixed a bug that prevented some controls in the nvidia-settings control panel from working when running an X server as an unprivileged user.
- Fixed a bug that could cause VK_ERROR_DEVICE_LOST when using VK_MEMORY_ALLOCATE_DEVICE_ADDRESS_CAPTURE_REPLAY_BIT to allocate memory.
- Disabled Fixed Rate Link (FRL) when using passive DisplayPort to HDMI dongles, which are incompatible with FRL.
It's a small update but if you want/need it for those few fixes, the NVIDIA 525.85.05 Linux driver can be downloaded at NVIDIA.com.
NVIDIA also updated their open GPU kernel driver sources on GitHub with a fix to address compiling their open-source GPU kernel driver with the LLVM Clang 15 compiler.
