Fix a bug with GLX_EXT_buffer_age where incorrect buffer age values would be reported for SLI AFR configurations. In such configurations buffer age may now be greater than 3, the previous maximum buffer age.
Fixed a bug that could cause hanging and Xids when performing RandR transforms with Overlay and SLI enabled.
Improved handling of framebuffer console restore on systems booted in UEFI mode.
Extended the information reported by the NVIDIA Xinerama X extension to report PRIME displays in addition to directly-connected displays.
Fixed a bug that caused HDMI audio devices to appear or disappear inconsistently when HDMI devices were hotplugged or unplugged.
Fixed a bug that could cause driver errors when setting modes on X screens running at Depth 8 or Depth 15.
Fixed a bug that could cause intermittent kernel panics when running with PRIME Sync.
Fixed a bug that caused a kernel panic when hotplugging HDMI displays on some Zotac mini PCs.
Updated nvidia-installer to label kernel modules with SELinux file type 'modules_object_t'. Some system SELinux policies only permit loading of kernel modules with this SELinux file type.
Removed support for checking for and downloading updated driver packages and precompiled kernel interfaces from nvidia-installer.This functionality was limited to unencrypted ftp and http, and was implemented using code that is no longer actively maintained.
Note that many Linux distributions provide their own packages of the NVIDIA Linux Graphics Driver in the distribution's native package management format. This may interact better with the rest of your distribution's framework, and you may want to use this rather than NVIDIA's official package.
Also note that SuSE users should read the SuSE NVIDIA Installer HOWTO before downloading the driver.
Installation instructions: Once you have downloaded the driver, change to the directory containing the driver package and install the driver by running, as root, sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-375.82.run
One of the last installation steps will offer to update your X configuration file. Either accept that offer, edit your X configuration file manually so that the NVIDIA X driver will be used, or run nvidia-xconfig
Note that the list of supported GPU products is provided to indicate which GPUs are supported by a particular driver version. Some designs incorporating supported GPUs may not be compatible with the NVIDIA Linux driver: in particular, notebook and all-in-one desktop designs with switchable (hybrid) or Optimus graphics will not work if means to disable the integrated graphics in hardware are not available. Hardware designs will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, so please consult with a system's manufacturer to determine whether that particular system is compatible.
