Nvidia Linux Display Driver 343.13 Beta

The Beta version of the Nvidia video driver for Nvidia graphics cards on Linux OSes
Nvidia Linux Display Driver Beta is a proprietary OpenGL video driver that tries to bring bleeding-edge features for graphics cards produced by Nvidia and used under a GNU/Linux operating system. Both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x86_64) architectures are supported at this time.

Fair warning!

Before reading further, please keep in mind that this is a Beta version. Even if it brings all the latest features and fixes annoying bugs from previous or current stable releases of the driver, it is still an unstable piece of software that may cause unpredictable issues or damage your hardware. Because of this, we do not recommend to install this Beta driver on production machines. You have been warned!

Installation instructions

For 32-bit systems:

Make sure that the kernel headers of your Linux distribution are installed, switch to a TTY console using the CTRL+ALT+F2 keyboard combination, locate the installer and type sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-xxx.xx.run as root (where xxx.xx is the current version number of the package) to install the driver.

For 64-bit systems:

Making sure that the kernel headers of your Linux distribution are installed, switch to a TTY console using the CTRL+ALT+F2 keyboard combination, locate the installer and type sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-xxx.xx.run as root (where xxx.xx is the current version number of the package) to install the driver.

During the installation, users will be asked if they want to edit the X configuration file manually or let the installer do all the work. Alternatively, after installation, you can run the nvidia-xconfig command via a X11 terminal emulator to set the new driver as default and generate the configuration file.

If you’re looking for the current stable releases of the Nvidia Linux Display Driver, do not hesitate to search our Linux section. Keep in mind though that Nvidia provides short and long lived branches, so we recommend to go with the long lived ones for extended support.

What's New in This Release:
  • Fixed a bug that caused disabled displays to be implicitly included in the target selection for some queries and assignments on the nvidia-settings command line interface, in the absence of any explicit target selection.
  • Added a new attribute to the NV-CONTROL API to query the current utilization of the video decode engine.
  • Fixed a bug where the Exchange Stereo Eyes setting in nvidia-settings didn't work in certain stereo configurations.
  • Worked around a Unigine Heaven 3.0 shader bug which could cause corruption when tessellation is enabled by implementing an application profile that uses the "GLIgnoreGLSLExtReqs" setting. See the documentation for the __GL_IGNORE_GLSL_EXT_REQS environment variable for more details.
