NVIDIA 1.0-8774 Linux Driver Released

Filed under: Uncategorized — ubuntudemon @ 8:48 pm

The drivers that were released today were not the 1.0-9XXX drivers that many were expecting, but rather NVIDIA has squeezed in a final Rel80 series driver. One of the prominent additions to X.Org 7.1 was the inclusion of AIGLX, which requires the OpenGL GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap extension. For those NVIDIA users wanting to use AIGLX, you will need to wait for the Linux 1.0-9XXX drivers.We would anticipate NVIDIA’s inaugural Linux 1.0-9XXX driver release to come in September, based upon other information received.

I hope Edgy will have the 1.0-9XXX driver and thus have AIGLX support for NVIDIA.

  1. Hi there, I guess this must be the first time I comment here, neverless I visit daily about a month or more now.

    I just want to say that I am a big fan of yours and love your work, you have helped me so much that I’ve decided to translate to portuguese one of your guides (Performance Tweaks).

    I hope you don’t mind. Here’s the link (by the way, I did some modifications, not much):

  2. Thank you for your kind words.

    You are welcome to translate and/or derive from my work. I would appreciate it if you would link to the original stuff but I see that you are doing that already 🙂

  3. In the next 11-12 days left of September, I really hope nvidia will get their finger out and release this driver, but I’m thinking we’ll have to wait until October/November 😦

  4. Edgy’s in RC now. No chance of a 9xxx driver getting shipped with it.
