Release highlights since 304.125:
- Removed libvdpau and libvdpau_trace from the NVIDIA driver package. VDPAU is not supported on the legacy hardware supported on the release 304 legacy driver branch. The libvdpau_nvidia vendor library is still included, so users who wish to use VDPAU with newer hardware that still works with release 304 drivers may install libvdpau from packages provided by the OS vendor where available, or from the source code available at:
- Updated nvidia-installer to use modprobe(8) when leaving the NVIDIA kernel module loaded after installation, instead of insmod(8) or libkmod. This allows the kernel module to honor any configuration directives that apply to it in /etc/modprobe.d when it is loaded.
- Fixed a bug that allowed console messages from the Linux kernel to be drawn over the user interface of nvidia-installer.
