New Nvidia Drivers with Much Improved Performance
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 7, 2012
The result of almost a year of development by NVIDIA, Valve and other game developers, the new GeForce R310 drivers are designed to give GeForce customers the best possible Linux-based PC gaming experience — and showcase the enormous potential of the world’s biggest open-source operating system.
Available for download at www.geforce.com, the new R310 drivers were also thoroughly tested with Steam for Linux, the extension of Valve’s phenomenally popular Steam gaming platform that officially opened to gamers starting today.
“With this release, NVIDIA has managed to increase the overall gaming performance under Linux,” said Doug Lombardi, vice president of marketing at Valve. “NVIDIA took an unquestioned leadership position developing R310 drivers with us and other studios to provide an absolutely unequalled solution for Linux gamers.”
The R310 drivers support the newest GeForce GTX 600 series GPUs, which have redefined gaming for desktop and n
Nvidia drivers with Ubuntu Studio

Has anyone had any luck with getting "nvidia-current" and "nvidia-current-updates" working with Ubuntu-Studio.
I keep running into:
"Running module version sanity check.
- Original module
- No original module exists within this kernel
- Installing to /lib/modules/3.5.0-25-lowlatency/updates/dkms/
"ERROR (dkms apport): kernel package linux-headers-3.8.3-030803-generic is not supported
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.8.3-030803-generic (x86_64)
I know this is really an issue with the underlying low-latency kernel, but I am having no luck with ferreting out if it is possbile with the low latency kernel at all. There are some description for getting it to work with the latest stock kernels here:
But it is not clear to me if this is applicable to low-latency scenario

Can't install Nvidia drivers with Linux Kernel 3.0.1 in Sid
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 17, 2011
Hello, i have Linux Mint Debian Edition 64 Bit and when the update manager said Kernel 3.0.1 was available (mint update) I got excited, so I installed it. When i rebooted It gave soime errors about Nouveu not being installed (which is good) And wouldn't load X (No driver). So i did a terminal login and Navigated to my Folder that contained the Nvidia Driver, and when i type in
nothing happens. I tried typing out the full name, and still no joy. Then i rebooted into 2.32.x and renamed the driver to nv.run, and retried the process, and still nothing happened except a File/folder doesn't exist error. Yes the file is executable. In order to install the driver on 2.32.x i just used the command, sudo ./N(tab) (no x check) and it ran correctly. What am I doing wrong? Any ideas?
New nVidia drivers 325.15 support 3.10 kernel
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 6, 2013
And, like it was planned, -current moves to 3.10 series and nVidia releases a new driver 325.15
If you are running bumblebee, I expect the official / unofficial repo maintained by jgeboski to be updated shortly. If you are impatient and running -current, I keep a repo that has everything you need ready to go:
I am running this on an Asus N56 laptop right now. All working smooth and sweet.

[SOLVED] Installing nVidia drivers with Optimus support, startx gives error "no screens found"
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 2, 2013
Just spent most of the day seeing if I could figure this out on my own. I feel like I did reasonably well for a first attempt, but X will not start and I haven't been able to figure out how to fix it...so here we go!
I have a Dell XPS 17 laptop that has both Intel and nVidia graphics with Optimus. I spent some time reading the Slackware documentation, along with the instructions on SlackBuilds.org before attempting the procedure.
Here's a summary of what I did:
1) Install xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist package from /extra on the Slackware disc
2) Install nvidia-kernel from SlackBuilds
3) Install libvdpau from SlackBuilds
4) Install nvidia-driver with COMPAT32="yes" from SlackBuilds
5) Copy /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-nvidia.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
After doing this, everything seemed to be ok. I saw no errors during boot, and I also saw a message that the nvidia module had been loaded successfully. I saw no mention of nouveau anywhere, indicating it h
[SOLVED}New Nvidia Drivers in Jaunty Gnome does not work
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 21, 2009
I have been using xinerema with the default drivers which came with the ubuntu. Unfortunetlly when i enable xinerema i cannot use compiz. I read that if i enable twin view, that will let me use compiz with two monitors. In nvidia settings twin view was greyed out. A friend of mine told me that i need to install latest drivers from nvidia,com. I am using Jaunty x64 by the way. So i downloaded the file below and installed it.
I stopped the X server before install and everything went smoothly. After i restart i get the message below.
After i click ok it asked me if i want to create a new configuration file for the hardware or use the default conf file. First i tried new conf file, after restart same thing happened. Then i chose default conf file. This time i did not get any error, gnome started successfully. However there is a problem. When i went to enable twin view to nvidia settings by typing "gksudo nvidia-settings"

New Nvidia Drivers Fedora Core 2
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 7, 2004
Help for a noob, please. I'm running the 2.3.3-1.435.2.3 kernel, which doesn't have a precompiled kernel interface, so I have to download the kernel-source package (kernel-sourcecode-2.6.6-1.435.2.3.noarch.rpm) from download.fedora.redhat.com. The question is - should I use the rpm install on this package, and if so, what directory? Anything I should watch out for? Don't want to hose my system after 2 weeks of tweaking it.
nVidia closed source drivers with a new GeForce 560 Ti
- date: September 19, 2011
I just installed me new graphics card. It's an nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB manufactured by EVGA. However I foolishly didn't uninstall the old binary drivers for my 9600 GT. At any rate, upon booting Ubuntu for the first time with my new gfx card and old nVidia driver, it reverted to nouveau. So my system runs, just without proprietary 3D acceleration, without compiz. So I use the Additional Drivers GUI utility that comes with Ubuntu to uninstall the proprietary nVidia drivers. I reinstall them. It asks me to reboot. I do; but nouveau is still in use. I open my xorg.conf with the intent to change the driver entry from nouveau to nv, but my xorg.conf is practically empty. Here is what my new xorg.conf looks like:
Identifier "Default Device"
Option "NoLogo" "True"
And here is the output of compiz-check courtesy of compiz developer Forlong:
