Additional information
  • Updated the FreeBSD driver Makefiles to use LOCALBASE instead of the deprecated X11BASE.Fixed a bug where RRGetCrtcInfo could report incorrect size information when an RandR output has a custom ViewPortIn.
  • Fixed a regression that could cause an X server crash when performing a modeset (e.g. changing resolutions, transformation settings, or display layout) when some connected display devices are disabled.
  • Augmented the resolution drop-down in the display configuration page of nvidia-settings with "implicit resolutions": for common resolutions, if a mode with that resolution is not available for a display device, that resolution will be simulated through MetaMode ViewPort scaling.

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_64-310.51.tar.gz && cd NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86_64-310.51 & 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.
