New nVidia 180.44 drivers for Linux


nVidia has been released another version of its proprietary *nix video drivers. 180.44 includes support for few new GPUs, fixes of OpenGL crash while running KDE4’s Plasma, a lot of VDPAU bugfixes. Traditionally there are version for Linux IA32/IA64/AMD64/EM64T, FreeBSD x86 and Solaris x64/x86. I didn’t update my LinuxMCE box since 180.18. So, tomorrow will do it. Hope it’ll improve performance during HD video playback and maybe it’ll help to get audio over HDMI (I know that it’s done under Kubuntu 8.10, but I still run 7.10).
