Description Andrey Bondrov 2014-12-08 14:48:57 MSK
New version of nvidia 340.x driver was released.
Comment 1 Andrey Bondrov 2014-12-08 14:52:58 MSK
Advisory: 

"New version 340.58. It adds support for the following GPUs: GeForce, GT820M, GeForce GTX 760A, GeForce GTX 850A, GeForce 810A, GeForce 820A, GeForce 840A, Tesla K8. 

Other changes:
- Fixed a bug that could cause VT-switching to fail following a suspend, resume, and driver reload sequence.
- Fixed a bug that caused incorrect colors to be displayed on X screens running at depth 8 on some GPUs.
- Fixed a bug that prevented GPUs from being correctly recognized in MetaMode strings when identified by UUID.
- Implemented support for disabling indirect GLX context creation using the -iglx option available on X.Org server release 1.16 and newer. Note that future X.Org server releases may make the -iglx option the default. To re-enable support for indirect GLX on such servers, use the +iglx option.
- Added the "AllowIndirectGLXProtocol" X config option. This option can be used to disallow use of GLX protocol. See "Appendix B. X Config Options" in the README for more details.
- Fixed a bug that could cause the CUDA debugger to fail after exiting X on systems with persistence mode enabled.
- Fixed a bug that could cause silent and intermittent failures when a CUDA application writes to a peer device's memory with GPUDirect.
- Improved compatibility with recent Linux kernels."

@QA-Team
As a personal favor , can you please , keep an eye out for this update and 
threat it with higher priority , please?
Seems that it fixed the X crash when R5 reach the kdm user login, on
GeForce cards, on kernel 3.14.25 ( latest in R5).
Thank you in advance, and thanks to Pulfer for update.
