Firmware for nVidia graphics cards
  3 reviews

Contains the firmware-like context programs for the open-source nouveau nVidia drivers. These are required for acceleration (both 2D and 3D) on nVidia cards of the nv40 generation and above (GeForce6 and above).

Although the nouveau drivers are now able to generate this firmware for nv40 generation cards this package still contains the nvidia context programs for debugging purposes.

This package is temporary; the nouveau drivers will soon be able to generate this data on the fly.

Not needed anymore in Mint 11. Mint 11 needs nvc0 firmware, not nv40/50 firmware.
