Arriving today, NVIDIA have their first bug-fix release of the year with the 410.93 driver as part of their longer supported series.
NVIDIA currently run a few different driver series, with the 410.93 driver being a "long-lived branch release". This means it will see bug fixes for a longer period, while not adding in breaking changes which would be reserved for their short-lived branch releases.
Here's what's changed in 410.93:
- Added support for the following GPUs:
- Quadro RTX 8000
- Fixed a bug that could prevent display detection from working on displays connected to some notebook docking stations.
- Fixed a bug which could cause VK_KHR_external_semaphore_fd operations to fail.
- Fixed a build failure, "implicit declaration of function
'vm_insert_pfn'", when building the NVIDIA DRM kernel module for Linux
kernel 4.20 release candidates.
- Fixed a build failure, "unknown type name 'ipmi_user_t'", when building the NVIDIA kernel module for Linux kernel 4.20 release candidates.
- Fixed a bug that caused kwin OpenGL compositing to crash when launching certain OpenGL applications.
- Added a new kernel module parameter, NVreg_RestrictProfilingToAdminUsers, to allow restricting the use of GPU performance counters to system administrators only.
