Stopped packaging and installing OpenGL and VDPAU header files
with the driver. Those interested in these files can get them from
their distributions' packages, where available, or upstream from:
Note that while libvdpau.so is still included in 260.xx drivers,
it will be removed from a future release series in early 2011.
Distributors are encouraged to package libvdpau.so from
- Fixed a bug in VDPAU that could cause a "display preemption" when
toggling MPlayer to full-screen the first time.
- Added OpenGL 4.1 support for Quadro Fermi, GeForce GTX 4xx, and
- Enhanced VDPAU to fully support Xinerama.
- Fixed a bug in the X driver that prevented operation of Xinerama when
using multiple NVIDIA GPUs from different major hardware generations
on X with ABI 4 or greater.
- Fixed a bug in the OpenGL driver's Xinerama support.
Rendering should have ocurred to all physical X screens driven by an
NVIDIA GPU compatible with the NVIDIA GPU driving physical X screen 0.
However, if some physical X screen did not satisfy that requirement,
then not only would that physical X screen not be rendered to (as
expected), but also all physical X screens with a higher number would
not be rendered to (which was unexpected).
- Added GPU "Processor Clock" reporting to the nvidia-settings PowerMizer
- Implemented support for SLI Mosaic Mode on Quadro FX 5800 and
Quadro Fermi and newer Quadro GPUs.
- Enhanced the VDPAU overlay-based presentation queue to allow it to be
used when SLI is active, and in some cases when the X composite
extension is enabled. See the README for further details.
- Added support for configuring the dithering mode used when driving
a flat panel with a GeForce 8 family or Quadro 4600/5600 or
newer GPU.See the "Dithering Controls" in the Flat Panel page
- Added unofficial GLX protocol support (i.e., for GLX indirect
rendering) for the following OpenGL extensions:
- Added GLX protocol support (i.e., for GLX indirect rendering)
for the following OpenGL extensions:
- GLX protocol for the following OpenGL extension is promoted
from unofficial GLX ptotocol to ARB approved GLX protocol:
- Added support for configuring individual displays as any eye in passive
stereo mode "4" when using TwinView or SLI Mosaic through extensions to
the MetaMode syntax.
- Added ColorSpace and ColorRange features for HDMI. These give
the ability to output YUV over HDMI and select full/reduced
color range on RGB over HDMI. ColorSpace and ColorRange
are X Configuration options and can be changed dynamically
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-Solaris-x86-260.19.04.run
Then, edit your X configuration file so that the NVIDIA X driver will be used; this can normally be done by running nvidia-xconfig

for more detailed instructions.
