The NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Driver Set brings accelerated 2D functionality and high-performance OpenGL support to Linux x86_64 with the use of NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs).

These drivers provide optimized hardware acceleration for OpenGL and X applications and support nearly all recent NVIDIA graphics chips (please see Appendix A, Supported NVIDIA Graphics Chips for a complete list of supported chips). TwinView, TV-Out and flat panel displays are also supported.

This README describes how to install, configure, and use the NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Driver Set. Answers to frequently asked questions and problem diagnoses for common issues are also provided. These pages are posted on NVIDIA's web site (, and are installed in /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/.
