NVIDIA 510.60.02 driver rolls out for Linux

By - | Views: 15,292

NVIDIA has released the latest update to their Linux driver with version 510.60.02 available now with new GPU support and also some bug fixes. Not as big as previous driver releases but still some essential fixes included.

Here's what's changed:

  • Added support for the following GPUs:
    • NVIDIA RTX A4000H
      NVIDIA RTX A5500
  • Fixed a bug that could cause displays with HDMI or DisplayPort audio to be deselected as the default audio output device after resuming from suspend.
  • Fixed a regression that could cause OpenGL applications to hang or render incorrectly after suspend/resume cycles or VT-switches
  • Fixed a bug, introduced in 495.29.05, that caused GPU "Model:" in /proc/driver/nvidia/gpus//information to be "Unknown" for some GPUs.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the nvidia-settings control panel to print spurious error messages
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent nvidia-installer from detecting the scripts/sign-file kernel module signing tool when using separate kernel source and output directories.
  • Fixed a bug which prevented kernel modules linked from precompiled kernel interface object files from being loaded on recent Linux kernels. This affected custom packages which were prepared with nvidia-installer's --add-this-kernel option, for example.

How to upgrade? That all depends on what Linux distribution you're on, as they all have their own way of doing it.

But no old gpu support, nor opensource support for older gpus. While AMD and intel still get updates (not because they need to, but because they love to see it work).
(IMHO: NVidia is just slightly better than being the D-Link of GPU's).

what? they have legacy drivers for older GPUs which also get updates for newer LTS kernels from time to time.
not opensource, yes, but that's the way they do stuff.

Hnnnnng... I just want the Vulkan extension that is required for gamescope to work to be added (like the AMD driver has), and the bug they intruduced several versions ago that just broke DOOM Eternal to be fixed. This was fixed in the windows driver the very next update, and the linux driver has had this bug for several months.....

I had an issue where resuming always caused it to be selected as default and I had to figure out how to blacklist the card specifically and keep my other Intel HDA going.. I wonder if that's fixed with this.

I had to roll back to the 470 driver. The 510 caused an insane amount of flickering.
