NVIDIA liberó ayer la última versión o actualización de sus controladores gráficos para sistemas operativos basados en Linux con sus Nvidia Display Driver 304.60 certificados, los cuales agregan varias mejoras y actualizaciones, como por ejemplo corregir algunos problemas el panel Unity de Ubuntu, entre otros que pueden revisar a continuación.
Highlights of Nvidia Display Driver 304.60:
• A bug, which caused the X server to crash if a display was put into DPMS off mode and subsequently re-enabled while screen transformations are in use, has been fixed;
• A bug that caused the X Resize and Rotate extension to be enabled when Xinerama is enabled, has been repaired. These two X extensions are incompatible and having them both enabled can confuse window managers such as KDE’s kwin;
• RandR is now correctly disabled when Xinerama is enabled;
• A bug causing OpenGL stereo applications to not work properly when using passive stereo modes 5 through 9 on Quadro Fermi and newer GPUs has been fixed;
• Reporting of the current utilization of Dedicated GPU Memory to the GPU information page of nvidia-settings has been added;
• Support for the “Backlight” RandR output property for configuring the brightness of some notebook internal panels has been added;
• A bug that prevented the Ubuntu Unity launcher panel from unhiding was fixed;
• A bug that caused nvidia-installer to sometimes attempt to write a log file in a nonexistent directory was fixed;
• A bug that caused GLX to leak memory when Xinerama is enabled was fixed.
