173.14.17 (legacy) for FreeBSD i386 released
 
Release Highlights (changes since 173.14.12):
  • Re-enabled support for non-SSE CPUs.
  • Fixed a server crash triggered by Kopete's 'new message' popup dialog when a composite manager is enabled.
  • Fixed a bug that caused window decorations to be corrupted in Compiz.
  • Fixed corruption in KDE 4 when OpenOffice is launched.
  • Fixed a problem that prevented the console from being restored on some notebooks.
  • Resolved an event-handling bug in the X driver responsible for X server crashes upon starting a windowed OpenGL application while using Compiz.
The 173.14.17 NVIDIA Accelerated FreeBSD Graphics Driver Set for FreeBSD/i386 is available for download via FTP.

Please see the README for more information about this release.

If you are using FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE or a more recent FreeBSD 6.x release, please make sure that the compat5x-i386 package is installed.

Note that the gtk-2.x ports package(s) shipped with FreeBSD releases > 5.3-RELEASE are binary incompatible with those shipped with FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE; due to this, the `nvidia-settings` binary shipped with 173.14.17 will not work on FreeBSD > 5.3-RELEASE. This problem can be solved by (re-)building `nvidia-settings` from source:

# fetch ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/nv...3.14.17.tar.gz
# tar zxf nvidia-settings-173.14.17.tar.gz
# cd nvidia-settings-1.0# gmake
# install nvidia-settings /usr/X11R6/bin
Please note: This NVIDIA FreeBSD graphics driver release supports GeForceFX and newer NVIDIA GPUs, GeForce4 and older GPUs are supported through the 96.43.xx and 71.86.xx NVIDIA legacy graphics drivers.

Please also note: If you encounter any problems with the 173.14.17 NVIDIA FreeBSD graphics driver release, please start a new thread and include a detailed description of the problem, reproduction steps and generate/attach an nvidia-bug-report.log file (please see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678 for details).
