Added a workaround for some Pascal based notebooks, where the GPU could fall off the bus when idle.
Added support for the following GPUs:
GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GeForce GTX 1650 Ti with Max-Q Design GeForce RTX 2060 with Max-Q Design Quadro T1000 with Max-Q Design
Added new "Connector-N" display device aliases to the X driver's X configuration option parser. This is useful in conjunction with the "ConnectedMonitor" X configuration option, for emulating the presence of connected monitors without knowing what specific connectors are available. See the "Display Device Names" appendix in the README for details.
Vulkan with flipping enabled on Quadro cards can lead to graphic corruption.
If you think you have run into it you can do either of the following as a workaround:
- Disable flipping in nvidia-settings (uncheck "Allow Flipping" in the "OpenGL Settings" panel)
- Disable UBB (run 'nvidia-xconfig --no-ubb')
- Use a composited desktop
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_64-440.100.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.
