NVIDIA 375.26 Driver Rolls Out With Several Fixes

In addition to NVIDIA updating their legacy Linux drivers today (xorg-server 1.19 support!), they have released a new build in their 375 driver series.

With the NVIDIA 375 driver already being stable since 375.20, no new features are introduced. The closest to a new feature is the Quadro M3000 SE is now officially supported. Today's NVIDIA 375.26 Linux driver release is primarily comprised of bug fixes.

Among the NVIDIA 375.26 Linux fixes are addressing console restoration on SLI systems, a backlight issue for some notebook displays, a long-standing bug with the NVIDIA X driver not correctly detecting AC/battery hotplug events, and an interaction issue when HARDENED_USERCOPY is enabled. There is also support for the screen_info.ext_lfb_base field to handle UEFI frame-buffer consoles with physical addresses above 4GB.

More details on the NVIDIA 375.26 stable driver update via NVIDIA.com. NVIDIA's next Linux driver beta now shouldn't be too far out, hopefully we'll see it premiere still in 2016.
