NVIDIA 367.57 Adds NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 Stereo Support on Linux

NVIDIA 3D Vision

NVIDIA Linux driver 367.57 has been released as the latest long lived branch version.

NVIDIA 367.57 adds support for NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 Stereo on Linux. This IR emitter can be used with stereo mode “10” set in the X configuration file.

Besides that, only following bugs has been fixed in this release:

  • Fixed a bug that could prevent systems with GPUs configured in SLI from resuming correctly from ACPI S3/S4 sleep/hibernate states.
  • Fixed a bug in nvidia-persistenced that caused it to incorrectly delete the PID file if a second instance of the daemon is started.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed nvidia-installer to attempt loading kernel modules that were built against non-running kernels.
