03.11.2005 - NVIDIA Linux IA32/AMD64 Display Driver vIA32 1.0-7167



View NVIDIA-drivers related news. The NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Driver Set brings both accelerated 2D functionality and high performance OpenGL support to Linux x86 with the use of NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs).

These drivers provide optimized hardware acceleration of OpenGL applications via a direct-rendering X Server and support nearly all NVIDIA graphics chips (please see APPENDIX A for a complete list of supported chips). TwinView, TV-Out and flat panel displays are also supported.

This README describes how to install, configure, and use the NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Driver Set. This file is posted on NVIDIA's web site (www.nvidia.com), and is installed in /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/.
