Driver Update: Nvidia 260.19.29 (12-14-2010)

If you’re using the NVIDIA video driver, an update is now available in Update Manager. This update adds support for the following GPUs:

  • GeForce GTX 460 SE
  • GeForce GTX 570
  • Quadro 5000M
  • NVS 300

It also fixes a bug that caused some OpenGL applications to become unresponsive for up to a minute on some GPUs when changing the resolution or refresh rate.

Instructions for using Update Manager are here. Simply apply the update on your PC-BSD system, and reboot. When the bootup starts, select option7 – run display setup wizard at the boot-splash screen, and you will then be able to select the new driver.

    I read somewhere PC BSD can’t utilize the 3D capabilities of the NVIDIA chipset, is that true?

      The PC-BSD NVIDIA driver has full 3D acceleration. However, 3d-vision support is still in beta, even for Linux.

    I’ve been using Ubuntu 10.10 because video is way faster for some reason. Still love my BSD.
    Thanks for the quick reply.
