NVIDIA driver 535.54.03 stable rolls out for Linux

By - | Views: 25,192

NVIDIA has today released their latest stable driver for Linux version 535.54.03, following on from their recent 535.43.02 Beta driver in late May.

Compared with the Beta, NVIDIA added in these extra bug fixes:

  • Fixed a bug that caused modesets to fail in some Wayland configurations.
  • Fixed a bug that caused head-mounted displays (HMDs) to display black after a modeset.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented SLI Mosaic controls from being displayed in the nvidia-settings control panel when using GSP Firmware.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause image corruption when unbinding Vulkan sparse textures.
  • Fixed a bug that caused head-mounted displays (HMDs) to display black after a modeset.

The rest of the changes are as follows:

  • Added support for the VK_EXT_memory_priority, and VK_EXT_pageable_device_memory extensions for Turing+ GPUs.
  • Improved the performance of Minecraft Java Edition on RTX 3000 series GPUs.
  • Fixed a memory leak in the NVIDIA GLX driver, as reported at: https://forums.developer.nvidia.com/t/222697
  • Added support for driving very high pixel clock mode timings such as 8K @ 60Hz. Please see the "MaxOneHardwareHead" X11 ModeValidation token in the README for details.
  • Extended Dynamic Boost support on notebooks to include older Renoir and Cezanne chipsets, in addition to Rembrandt and newer AMD chipsets.
  • Fixed a bug that caused Vulkan X11 swapchain creation to fail on GPUs without a display engine when the VK_KHR_present_id extension is used.
  • Fixed console restore on legacy VGA consoles when using the NVIDIA Open GPU Kernel Modules.
  • Added nvoptix.bin to the driver package. This data file is used by the OptiX ray tracing engine library, libnvoptix.so.1.
  • Removed libnvidia-compiler.so.VERSION from the driver package. This functionality is now provided by other driver libraries.
  • Added power usage and power limits information to nvidia-settings PowerMizer page.
  • Updated NV_CTRL_GPU_POWER_SOURCE NV-CONTROL API to report undersized power source.
  • Add support for version 4 of the linux-dmabuf wayland protocol.
  • Added NV-CONTROL attributes NV_CTRL_FRAMELOCK_MULTIPLY_DIVIDE_MODE and NV_CTRL_FRAMELOCK_MULTIPLY_DIVIDE_VALUE to allow syncing a Quadro Sync II card to different House Sync signal rates. This feature requires firmware version 2.18 or later; to download the latest firmware version, please visit: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/drivers/firmware/quadro-sync-firmware-driver/
  • Added support for the VK_KHR_video_queue, VK_KHR_video_decode_queue, VK_KHR_video_decode_h264 and VK_KHR_video_decode_h265 extensions.
  • Added an application profile to avoid performance problems in Xfce 4 when the OpenGL compositor backend is enabled along with G-SYNC.
  • Added support for suspend and resume when using GSP firmware.
  • Moved the nvidia-settings application icon into the 'hicolor' icon theme, which allows it to be customized by other icon themes selected in the desktop environment.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented PRIME render offload from working for Wayland applications when running on a system with an AMD iGPU.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented nvidia-installer from recording kernel log output to the installer log in some module loading failure paths.
  • Changed nvidia-installer to no longer use the $XDG_DATA_DIRS environment variable. XDG data files are now installed to a path specified by the --xdg-data-dir option, or /usr/share if not specified.
  • This fixes a problem when Flatpak is installed that caused the installer to place the nvidia-settings.desktop file in /root/.local/share/flatpak/exports/share/applications.
  • Changed the behavior of glXGetRefreshRateSGI() for non-integer refresh rates to round to the nearest whole number rather than truncating.
  • Changed the compression format of the .run installer package from xz to zstd. This results in a smaller compressed package, and faster decompression performance. A fallback zstd decompressor is embedded into the installer package for systems which do not already have a zstd decompression program installed.
  • Fixed a bug that caused nvidia-installer to mistakenly unload some already loaded non-NVIDIA kernel modules.
  • Fixed a bug which caused incorrect reporting of presentation times when using the VK_NV_present_barrier Vulkan extension.

You can download it direct here, or wait for your usual Linux distribution packaging updates. How and when you get it will depend on whatever distribution you're on.

Was there something you're happy to see added or fixed here? Are you waiting on NVIDIA fixing something else? Let me know in the comments.

Quoting: DennisGood news, new updates from nvidia.
I really wished they removed the x11 flag for overclock / undervolt or added it somehow to wayland.
Unless I can not undervolt my GPU on wayland, I feel like I need to stay on X11 :/

How do you undervolt your GPU?
The voltage controls are not exposed by the Linux driver AFAIK.

Sry, I am a bit late, wasnt logged in here for a while:

You can undervolt, not direct but you can set offsets and limits, so you hit other P states that uses lower voltages, its described here in the 2. comment https://forums.developer.nvidia.com/t/undervolting-can-damage-video-card/214471/3 Works well, kinda tricky to configure

This is what I do on my 3070ti: (First make sure you have a X11 session - wayland not working „ootb“ and set the coolbit flag 8 in the x11.org file, this will enable power controll its described here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/NVIDIA/Tips_and_tricks

The commands I use for undervolting:

sudo nvidia-smi -pm 1

sudo nvidia-smi -i 0 -pl 290

sudo nvidia-smi -i 0 -lgc 210,1890

sudo /usr/bin/nvidia-settings -a "[gpu:0]/GPUGraphicsClockOffsetAllPerformanceLevels=210"
