1.247.  xorg-x11-drv-nv

1.247.1.  RHEA-2009:1342: enhancement update

An enhanced xorg-x11-drv-nv package is now available.
xorg-x11-drv-nv provides a driver for NVIDIA cards for the implementation of the X Window System.
This update resolves the following bug:
  • NVIDIA Quadro FX 570 and Quadro FX 1700 graphics cards obtain modetimings from the X server for mode validation ("native modesetting"). Previously, xorg-x11-drv-nv did not support native modesetting, and therefore would not work with these cards. With native modesetting supported in xorg-x11-drv-nv, this driver now works with Quadro FX 570 and Quadro FX 1700 graphics cards. (BZ#480025)
This update also adds support for:
  • switching between internal and external displays with the Fn+F7 key combination on Lenovo T61p notebooks. (BZ#435285)
  • NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX graphics cards. (BZ#452996)
All users of NVIDIA graphics cards should install this package, which resolves this issue and adds these enhancements.
