NVIDIA binary kernel module source
This package provides the source for the NVIDIA Xorg binary kernel module needed by nvidia-driver in a form suitable for use by module-assistant or kernel-package.
The NVIDIA binary drivers provide optimized hardware acceleration of OpenGL applications via a direct-rendering X Server for graphics cards using NVIDIA chip sets. AGP, PCIe, SLI, TV-out and flat panel displays are also supported.
PLEASE read /usr/share/doc/nvidia-kernel-source/README.Debian.gz for building information. If you want the kernel module to be automatically installed via DKMS, install nvidia-kernel-dkms instead.
This version only supports GeForce 8xxx and higher of the Geforce GPUs plus corresponding Quadros and nforce. Look at the legacy packages for older cards.
See /usr/share/doc/nvidia-kernel-source/README.txt.gz for a complete list of supported GPUs and PCI IDs.
