NVIDIA drivers for Linux have been protected from unauthorized access since they were released. The company now announces that it will provide Linux drivers for its graphics card under a dual GPL / MIT license, both closed and open, starting with R515. The NVIDIA Open GPU Kernel Modules repository will contain the related source code.
What does this mean to Linux users? This move will have no impact on gamers or ordinary consumers. The code’s full version is currently only available for drivers for graphics cards used in data centers that use Turing and Ampere GPUs. Developers of Linux distributions have the ability to include drivers in their software repositories.
