NVIDIA R304.22 for Linux, Solaris and FreeBSD

NVIDIA R304.22 Linux Mint 13

NVIDIA has published a new graphics driver for Linux that adds the support of GTX 680M as well as Quadro K1000M and K2000M. R304.22 comes with a bunch a new features (like the DKMS —Dynamic Kernel Module Support— support in nvidia-installer: installing the kernel module through DKMS allows the module to be rebuilt automatically when changing to a different Linux kernel) and several bugfixes. The complete changelog is available on the download page.


R304.22 is an OpenGL 4.2 driver and exposes one new GLX server extension compared to R302.11:

  • GLX_EXT_create_context_es_profile

I tested this driver under Linux Mint 13 with a GeForce GTX 680 (I followed this article to install the graphics driver: How to quickly Install NVIDIA R302.11 Drivers Under Linux Mint 13).
