Comment 1 Eugene Shatokhin 2015-03-02 18:30:53 MSK
A new long-lived branch 346.x of the proprietary driver for NVidia GPUs was released. The driver supports GeForce GTX 400 series and later.

Also note that nvidia346 requires libvdpau 0.9 (update request http://bugs.rosalinux.ru/show_bug.cgi?id=5108), so the udpate request 5108 should be processed first.

Hints for testing. 

XFdrake still knows nothing about nvidia346. This will be fixed by a future update request for ldetect-lst. 

Until then, you can do the following to test the driver.

1. A system with an NVidia graphics card supported by nvidia346 is needed.
See the list of supported GPUs here:

2. Run XFdrake. It should offer nvidia340 as a proprietary driver among other things. Select it then set everything up with XFdrake as usual.

3. Install x11-driver-video-nvidia346. The packages with nvidia340 will be removed during the process.

4. Reboot and check if the graphics works.

I tested this update on our test rack with GeForce GTX 480 on x86_64 and i586, kernel 3.14.33 and 3.18.x.

Phoronix Test Suite, video playback and Steam did not reveal any problems.

ASUS X71SL with G98M [GeForce 9300M GS]: http://hw.rosalinux.ru/index.php?probe=e2b3ce71be

XFdrake suggests nvidia340 driver as expected since the card is not supported by nvidia346.
