Arrow 96.43.10 (legacy, BETA) for FreeBSD i386 released

Release Highlights:
  • Added support for X.org server 1.5.99.901.
  • Fixed a text corruption problem on X.org server 1.5 and up.
  • Fixed an X server crash with multiple server generations when GLX is disabled.
  • Fixed a bug that caused corrupt window decorations in Compiz.
  • Worked around an X server bug that causes text to disappear when a composite manager is enabled on X.org 1.5 and newer.
The 96.43.10 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 96.43.10 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...6.43.10.tar.gz
# tar zxf nvidia-settings-96.43.10.tar.gz
# cd nvidia-settings-1.0# gmake
# install nvidia-settings /usr/X11R6/bin
Please note: If you encounter any problems with the 96.43.10 NVIDIA FreeBSD graphics driver release, please start a new thread and include a detailed description of the problem, reproduction steps and any relevant log files.
