Updating drivers in linux updating cdrom drivers

Intel® open source 3D Graphics Drivers for Linux* are the industry-leading drivers for Linux* distributions for all Intel® graphics platforms shipped over the last decade.Because these drivers are integrated into all popular Linux distributions, you can trust that your Linux system will deliver stunning, high quality graphics without needing additional hardware or extra driver software.That's no longer the case thanks to the Proprietary GPU Drivers PPA, which offers stable proprietary Nvidia graphics driver updates, without updating other libraries to unstable versions (some libraries may still be updated using this PPA, if they are needed by the drivers, but there's nothing unstable in the PPA).

The xorg-edgers ppa provides the very latest nvidia drivers. Now the ppa is setup and the package information is also updated.

For use with Microsoft® Windows operating systems equipped with AMD Radeon™ discrete desktop/mobile and APU graphics.

Download and run directly onto the system you want to update For Linux® systems, Apple Boot Camp systems or other AMD graphics products such as AMD Fire Pro™ and Embedded graphics, please select your driver using the selection menus below.

Sometimes, when you have a very new graphics card from Nvidia, you have a problem: the closed source non-free Nvidia driver in the repositories of Ubuntu or Linux Mint, isn't recent enough.

A sure sign for that, is when Driver Manager (Mint) or Additional Drivers (Ubuntu) doesn't offer you a proprietary driver for your brand-new Nvidia video card....
