Arrow 185.18.08 (BETA) for Linux x86/x86-64 released

Noteworthy changes since 185.18.04:
  • Fixed stability problems with some GeForce 6200/7200/7300 GPUs on multi-core/SMP systems.
  • Improved recovery from certain types of errors.
  • Fixed a problem that caused DisplayPort monitors to never light up or lose sync intermittently on some Quadro GPUs.
  • Fixed a bug that caused some performance levels to be disabled on certain GeForce 9 series notebooks.
  • Fixed a problem that could result in temporary stalls when moving OpenGL application windows on GeForce 8 and later GPUs.
  • Fixed a bug that could interfere with the detection of display devices attached to secondary GPUs when first starting X after cold boots.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented VGA fonts from being saved/restored correctly on GeForce 8 and later GPUs.
  • Loaded the NVIDIA kernel module earlier in the X driver's initialization path to facilitate more graceful fallbacks if the kernel module cannot be loaded. Removed the LoadKernelModule X configuration option.
  • Fixed a bug that caused kernel crashes when attempting to initialize NvAGP on Linux/x86-64 kernels built with the CONFIG_GART_IOMMU kernel option.
