NVIDIA release the 460.39 Linux driver update, improved support for kernel 5.10+

Ready for a new stable NVIDIA driver for Linux? There’s a new one out now with added GPU support and some tidying up work done with bug fixes too.

  • Fixed a bug that could intermittently cause NvFBC applications to fail with the error message “Unable to send exported fds”.
