NVIDIA driver 525.85.05 is out now for Linux

By - | Views: 29,029

NVIDIA have put up a smaller stable update for their Linux driver with a couple of noted fixes included. Here's the details. Since this is a stable driver in their Production Branch, all users should be okay to upgrade.

Here's what's included in version 525.85.05:

  • Improved the reliability of suspend and resume on UEFI systems when using certain display panels.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented some controls in the nvidia-settings control panel from working when running an X server as an unprivileged user.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause VK_ERROR_DEVICE_LOST when using VK_MEMORY_ALLOCATE_DEVICE_ADDRESS_CAPTURE_REPLAY_BIT to allocate memory.
  • Disabled Fixed Rate Link (FRL) when using passive DisplayPort to HDMI dongles, which are incompatible with FRL.

On GitHub, their open GPU kernel modules were also updated along with it to fix build problems with Clang 15.0.

Is there a bug in the NVIDIA drivers you're waiting on a fix for? Let me know in the comments.

Quoting: omer666The driver keeps needing manual recompiling of the kernel module on Fedora 37, which is pretty annoying

Couldn't you just install akmod-nvidia from rpmfusion? I'm running fedora silverblue 37 so that's basically the only way for me to install the nvidia drivers.

BUT I need to wait for the new drivers to actually be posted on the repo. I did have the issue of a passive DP->HDMI port not showing the correct refresh rates as I posted on this thread here on the developer forums.

I am indeed using akmod from RPMFusion, the module compiles automatically but the driver can't find it. I need to pass dnf remove kmod-nvidia* and then akmods --force and reboot.
Don't you have the same problem on Silverblue?
Maybe my install is getting a bit old...

Not really and I can't either way. Because Silverblue is immutable it's probably prebuild before sending it to rpm-ostree. I have to wait for a stable atomic update/upgrade.

Usually during Nvidia version transitions I can't update my system for half a day or up to a day like now because of dependency issues.

But because of the atomic updates the current one I'm using is stable and so will be the next one when they fix out the quirks.

P.S.

You're removing kmod-nvidia*, right? I have akmod-nvidia (with an a at the start) installed which should build the kernel stuffs during udpates.

https://rpmfusion.org/Howto/NVIDIA, section Installing the drivers

 
sudo dnf update -y # and reboot if you are not on the latest kernel
sudo dnf install akmod-nvidia # rhel/centos users can use kmod-nvidia instead
sudo dnf install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-cuda #optional for cuda/nvdec/nvenc support
