and another release :D

Quote:
Release Highlights:

* Added support for the following GPUs:
o Quadro FX 2700M
o GeForce 9400M G
o GeForce 9800 GT
o GeForce 9800 GT
o GeForce 8200M G
o GeForce Go 7700
o GeForce 9800M GTX
o GeForce 9800M GT
o GeForce 9800M GS
o GeForce 9500 GT
o GeForce 9700M GT
o GeForce 9650M GT
o GeForce 9500 GT
* Fixed a problem with the SDI sync skew controls in nvidia-settings.
* Fixed a problem that caused some SDI applications to hang or crash.
* Fixed an nvidia-settings crash when xorg.conf contains Device and Screen sections but no ServerLayout section.
* Fixed a problem that caused the Linux OpenGL library to crash when used inside FreeBSD's Linux emulation layer.
* Updated VDPAU:
o VdpDecoderCreate API has changed incompatibly. All client applications must be rebuilt because of this change.
o For H.264, require the application to tell VDPAU how many reference frames to allow. This allows the application to request more than 4 reference frames. VDPAU should now support level 4.1 reference frame limits on all GPUs (or very close to this limit). The application now has control over this aspect of VDPAU's memory usage.
o Fix corruption decoding some H.264 streams on some GPUs.
o Fix a bug that prevented VC-1/WMV3 decode from being allowed on some GPUs.
o Documentation enhancements and cleanups to vdpau.h.
o Don't paint the color key to presentation queue targets until the first frame is presented. This should reduce or remove the time the key is displayed before the presented frame is visible.

Manually
cd /usr/portage/local/layman/berkano/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers/ (or your path)
sudo cp ./nvidia-drivers-180.11.ebuild ./nvidia-drivers-180.16.ebuild
sudo ebuild cp ./nvidia-drivers-180.16.ebuild digest
sudo emerge nvidia-drivers

What's that to do with nvidia-drivers? Seems you've got a garbled .kde directory.

Well, I think it is nvidia-driver because this happens only since I updated to the 180.* driver ...

Code:
plasma[5662] trap stack segment ip:7f0cae75f772 sp:7f0bdbf76ee0 error:0
in dmesg and thats all (plasma get down).

The kwin error mention some libGL in the trace too. But it seems to be only me :/

And nvidia-settings as well. Also a vdpau prepatched mplayer snapshot: mplayer-1.0_rc2_p27960.ebuild 8)

it might not have much changes compared to 180.18 but it's tagged stable:

nvidia-drivers 180.22 STABLE release
