NVIDIA have put out the 410.93 driver for Linux today

By - | Views: 14,254

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.

Find it on the official NVIDIA site or wait for your distribution to get updated packages through your usual method.

It seems far away the day Linus Torvald insulted Nvidia...
We must accept that NVIDIA today is more cooperative with Linux System.

As a Nvidia user myself, I still feel they are doing the bare minimum just so they can say they support Linux.

In the open source side nothing has change. If Linus won't insult them anymore, is because of his treatment, but not because they are doing things any better.

Agreed, Optimus still can't switch between GPUs without a system re-log.

Also, when I leave my notebook using only the discrete GPU, sometimes the fan goes like crazy even when computer is idle (doing nothing).

That sounds like it's more the ACPI / Power management in your system than it is anything else. The fans on mine only kick off if I'm doing something like watching videos (cranks up when trying to resize a window while a video is playing).

Hell, I have a VM running right now on my laptop, and the fans aren't on at all.

Hmm, I do not agree. I'm happy with my Nvidia drivers. Open Source would be even better, but so what?
They do well, if you remind yourself, that we are about 1% of there customers ;-)

For gamers, perhaps. But I'm sure the overall percentage is much higher; many professional workstations use Linux, not Windows. The average users just have the built-in IGP, and don't factor into their market at all.

Cool. Have they fixed the tearing yet, or are they sorting out the important stuff, like making sure the armpit hair in Hitman has the right level of PhysX glisten?

The control panel still needs to be redone and easier to use.

Nvidia users have still video tearing on Linux...
