Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD driver 525.105.17 [production branch release]

Release highlights since 525.89.02:

  • Fixed a bug that could cause the nvidia-settings control panel to crash when resetting the display layout.

  • Fixed a bug that could cause excessive GPU power consumption at idle when driving multiple displays with a high refresh rate.

  • Fixed a bug in nvidia-powerd which could cause excessive CPU usage.

  • Fixed an issue which could cause applications to run at 1 FPS when using an NVIDIA PRIME Display Offload sink as the only active display.

  • Added compatibility for Linux kernels with Indirect Branch Tracking (IBT).

  • Fixed a bug that could cause fullscreen PRIME Render Offload applications and/or X to crash when an NVIDIA GPU is driving multiple displays with Reverse PRIME.

  • Added support for console restoration when using simpledrm.

  • Updated nvidia-modprobe to create symbolic links in /dev/char when creating the /dev/nvidia* device nodes. This resolves an issue that prevented the device nodes from working with newer versions of runc:
