Binary packages built by this source
- nvidia-current-updates: NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library
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.
