Additional information
  • Added support for the following GPU:
  • GeForce GTX 760
  • GeForce 720M
  • Updated the nvidia-settings control panel to report more detailed locking information.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the X server to crash after power-cycling displays connected behind a DisplayPort 1.2 Multi-Stream Transport hub.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause nvidia-settings to crash when switching VTs after changing some settings.
  • Updated the application profile syntax to allow for multiple patterns within a single rule. See the README for details.
  • Fixed a bug that caused OpenGL programs to crash when the __GL_DOOM3 environment variable was set.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the OpenGL driver to hang sometimes when running the SpeedTree Modeler application.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause an OpenGL application to crash if it creates and destroys multiple threads.
  • Fixed a bug that caused corrupted window content in some cases when moving GLX windows with antialiasing enabled.
  • Fixed a bug that caused DisplayPort devices that failed link training to be reported as connected rather than disconnected.
  • Fixed a regression that could cause a DisplayPort device that was connected to one connector to turn off when a DisplayPort device on a different connector was connected or disconnected.
  • On Kepler-based GPUs, improved the appearance of the tearing that occurs when using RandR 1.4's Source Output capability.While tearing is still expected, the tears should now appear as horizontal lines rather than more noticeable checkerboard or triangular shapes.
  • Added a "Prefer Consistent Performance" PowerMizer Mode to the nvidia-settings control panel, available on Quadro boards that support this feature.

Installation instructions: Once you have downloaded the driver, change to the directory containing the driver package and install the driver by running, as root, tar xzf NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-319.32.tar.gz && cd NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-319.32 & make install

Then, edit your X configuration file so that the NVIDIA X driver will be used; this can normally be done by running 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.

See the README for more detailed instructions.
