Unreal Engine 4.9 is here! See all 70 pages of release notes:
Linux Display Driver - x86 NVIDIA Certified355.11August 31, 2015
Linux x64 (AMD64/EM64T) Display Driver NVIDIA Certified355.11August 31, 2015
Linux 32-bit ARM Display Driver NVIDIA Certified355.11August 31, 2015
Solaris Display Driver – x64/x86 NVIDIA Certified355.11August 31, 2015
FreeBSD Display Driver – x86 NVIDIA Certified355.11August 31, 2015
FreeBSD Display Driver – x64 NVIDIA Certified355.11August 31, 2015

  • Added support for the following GPUs:
    • GeForce GTX 950
      Quadro M4000
      Quadro M5000
  • Fixed a bug that caused applications using OpenCL or CUDA with OpenGL interopability to crash when using GLX indirect rendering.
  • Fixed a bug that caused VDPAU to only display the top half of a video frame when decoding and displaying H.265/HEVC encoded video streams.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause GPU exceptions when using glReadPixels() on the depth or stencil buffers of multisample windows while resizing or moving the windows.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause data from one texture level to overwrite data from the next lowest level, when creating a texture view that did not include the higher of the two levels.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the nvidia-settings control panel to crash when updating the display layout.
  • Corrected some erroneous reporting of support for GLX extensions: several extensions were being reported as supported for indirect GLX, which were in fact only supported under direct rendering.
  • Added support for the following EGL extensions:
    • EGL_KHR_swap_buffers_with_damage
  • Replaced the build system for the NVIDIA kernel modules and updated the installer package and nvidia-installer to use the new build system and kernel module source code layout. For more information about the new build system and layout, see the README document at:
  • Added experimental full OpenGL support to EGL.
  • Marked the DeleteUnusedDP12Displays option as deprecated.

    Version 1.5.0 of the X Resize and Rotate specification added a note that dynamically-created outputs will not be destroyed, so this option is deprecated and will be removed in a future driver release.
  • Added support for VDPAU profiles added in VDPAU 0.9:
  • Fixed a bug that prevented more than one RandR output from sharing user-added modes.
  • Fixed a bug that caused application-specified swap intervals to be ignored on some screens when using Xinerama.
  • Fixed a bug that caused user-supplied RandR modes with nonsensical combinations of the +HSync, -HSync, +VSync, and -VSync flags to corrupt the mode list.
  • Added support to make an OpenGL 3.0 and above context current without making current to any drawable.

GpuTest / Re: Support for multiple GPU cards on the same host
« Last post by JeGX on August 28, 2015, 07:11:34 PM »
On windows, multiple gaming GPUs are only supported on SLI or CrossFire setups (with some minor tweaks in the graphics driver control panel). On OSX, virtual screens should allow to run GpuTest on a specific GPU (I wrote an article about virtual screen here: ). On Linux, we can launch the test on a specific GPU (with a correct specification of the display:window parameters if I'm not wrong) but there is no command line param in GpuTest for that and I haven't tested this feature yet...

What is your system?

I should link the Python plugin with something that is present on every linux distro like You can still try to copy the Python shared objects in the GLSL Hacker plugin dir and rename one of them in That should work...

I will look at this issue for the next Linux update of GLSL Hacker.
