Additional information
  • Added NV-CONTROL event notification for NV_CTRL_FRAMELOCK_SYNC_READY status changes.
  • Added a new X configuration option "Interactive", which defaults to enabled, but can be disabled to allow long-running GPU compute programs to run concurrently with X.
  • Fixed a bug in the VDPAU presentation queue that could cause VDPAU "display preemption" when rendering to tiny or zero-sized windows or pixmaps.
  • Fixed a bug in VDPAU which prevented use of the overlay presentation queue following an application exiting without gracefully destroying its VDPAU presentation queue.

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-x86-270.26.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

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.
