NVIDIA has just announced the immediate availability for download of the 304.116 Legacy version of its graphics driver for Linux operating systems.

A day after launching a new, major driver for its latest graphic cards, NVIDIA has also released an update for its older cards.

According to the developers, the nvidia-installer has been updated in order to consider the "libglamoregl.so" X loadable, and the compatibility with recent Linux kernels has been improved.

Also, the NVIDIA OpenGL driver has been updated and it's now capable of writing files to $TMPDIR if it is set, instead of unconditionally writing to /tmp, and a fallback for writing temporary files to $HOME/.nvidia has been implemented and $HOME/.nv is now used instead.

Check out the changelog for a complete list of fixes and improvements.
