libcuda1-304: NVIDIA CUDA runtime library

 The Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) enables NVIDIA
 graphics processing units (GPUs) to be used for massively parallel
 general purpose computation.
 .
 This package contains the driver specific runtime library.
 .
 Supported NVIDIA devices include GPUs starting from GeForce 8 and Quadro FX
 series, as well as the Tesla computing processors.

libcuda1-304-updates: Transitional package for libcuda1-304

 This is a transitional package for libcuda1-304, and can be
 safely removed after the installation is complete.

nvidia-304: NVIDIA legacy binary driver - version 304.135

 The binary driver provide optimized hardware acceleration of OpenGL
 applications via a direct-rendering X Server. AGP, PCIe, SLI, TV-out
 and flat panel displays are also supported.
 .
 This package also includes the source for building the kernel module
 required by the Xorg driver, and provides NVIDIA's implementation of
 the Video Decode and presentation API. The latter enables acceleration
 for GeForce 8 and later series cards for h264 video.
 .
 GPUs such as GeForce series 6 or newer are supported.
