Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD driver 340.93 (legacy for GeForce 8 and 9 series)
Release highlights since 340.76: [list] [.] Fixed a bug that caused the X server to crash if an OpenGL application tried to allocate a drawable when GPU-accessible memory is exhausted. [/.][.] Fixed a bug that could cause an Xid error when terminating a video playback application using the overlay presentation queue in VDPAU. [/.][.] Updated nvidia-installer to avoid recursing too deeply into kernel source trees under /usr/lib/modules, mirroring an existing restriction on recursion under /lib/modules. [/.][.] Fixed a rare deadlock condition when running applications that use OpenGL in multiple threads on a Quadro GPU. [/.][.] Fixed a kernel memory leak that occurred when looping hardware- accelerated video decoding with VDPAU on Maxwell-based GPUs. [/.][.] Fixed a bug that caused the X server to crash if a RandR 1.4 output provided by a Sink Output provider was selected as the primary output on X.Org xserver 1.17 and higher. [/.][.] Fixed a bug that caused waiting on X Sync Fence objects in OpenGL to hang indefinitely in some cases. [/.][.] Fixed a bug that prevented OpenGL from properly recovering from hardware errors or sync object waits that had timed out. [/.][.] Updated nvidia-installer to use modprobe(8) when leaving the NVIDIA kernel module loaded after installation, instead of insmod(8) or libkmod. This allows the kernel module to honor any configuration directives that apply to it in /etc/modprobe.d when it is loaded. [/.][.] Fixed a bug that allowed console messages from the Linux kernel to be drawn over the user interface of nvidia-installer.
