nVIDIA Linux Display Driver 169.09 Released

Nvidia Linux Display Driver version 169.09 release, whichis actually more like a patch for that wicked 100% fan speed bug encountered in all GeForce 8 cards. This bug was introduced in the previous release!

Release Highlights

  • Fixed a problem causing the fan on some GPUs to always run at full speed.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the X driver to crash if the X.Org GLX extension module was loaded intead of NVIDIA’s.
  • Improved the X driver’s awareness of the current notebook docking status.
  • Fixed brightness control on HP Compaq notebooks.
  • Fixed a bug in the Linux/i2c algorithm driver implementation that prevented core transfer types from succeeding.

As you can see, this new driver fixes another important bug which caused a crash if the GLX extension module was loaded instead of NVIDIA’s one. Moreover, the brightness control for HP Compaq laptops is fixed now.

    That’s the 32-bit version. For those of us who prefer the way of the future, the 64-bit version is here.

    I haven’t had enough lack of memory in three years to run 32-bit.
