    NVIDIA Driver 440.64 Version Released And Support Linux Kernel 5.6


    NVIDIA Driver 440.64 Version Released And Support Linux Kernel 5.6

    Newly Added support for the following GPUs:
    • GeForce MX330
    • GeForce MX350

    Fixed Issue

    Fixed a regression that allowed displays to enter Display power management signaling (DPMS) mode even when it is disabled in the X server settings.

    Fixed driver installation failure on Linux kernel 5.6 release candidates, where the NVIDIA kernel module failed to build with error "implicit declaration of function 'ioremap_nocache'".

    New NVIDIA driver version 440.64 with initial support for Linux Kernel 5.6 and other GPUs.

    Note that many Linux distributions provide their own packages of the NVIDIA Linux Graphics Driver in the distribution's native package management format. This may interact better with the rest of your distribution's framework, and you may want to use this rather than NVIDIA's official package.

    Also note that SuSE users should read the SuSE NVIDIA Installer HowTo before downloading the driver. 


    How To Install?

    Once you have downloaded the driver, change to the directory containing the driver package and install the driver by running, as root, sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-440.64.run

    One of the last installation steps will offer to update your X configuration file. Either accept that offer, edit your X configuration file manually so that the NVIDIA X driver will be used, or run nvidia-xconfig.
