NVIDIA released today the NVIDIA 460.67 proprietary graphics driver as part of its long production branch for GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris platforms.
Coming two months after the NVIDIA 460.39 release, NVIDIA 460.67 is here today to improve support for the latest Linux 5.11 kernel series by fixing a driver installation failures where the NVIDIA kernel module failed to build with the “error: implicit declaration of function ‘sys_close'” or “fatal error: asm/kmap_types.h: No such file or directory” errors.
So if you encountered any of these errors when trying to install previous NVIDIA graphics driver versions on a GNU/Linux distribution powered by Linux kernel 5.11, you should definitely use the new release.
Only on Linux systems, the NVIDIA 460.67 graphics driver also fixes a bug that may have caused apps to become unstable when using ray tracing extensions on multi-GPU setups if the GPUs didn’t match.
For all supported platforms, including Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris, the new NVIDIA graphics driver addresses a issue that prevented G-SYNC from working correctly on Kepler-based GPUs after a mode switch, and patches a bug where the vkCreateSwapchain Vulkan extension could cause the X Server to crash when an invalid imageFormat was provided.
That’s it. I know is not a big release, but considering the Linux 5.11 kernel improvements, I believe the new NVIDIA graphics driver will soon be adopted by some of the most popular rolling-release GNU/Linux distributions.
You can download the NVIDIA 460.67 graphics driver for 64-bit and ARM64 Linux systems, as well as for 64-bit FreeBSD, and 32-bit/64-bit Solaris systems right now from the official website. Detailed installation instructions are provided in the “Additional Information” tab under each download page.
