1.167.1. RHBA-2011:0121: bug fix update

An updated xorg-x11-drv-nv package that fixes a bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
xorg-x11-drv-nv is a video driver for the X.Org implementation of the X Window System that provides a support for NVIDIA cards.
This update fixes the following bug:
* Currently, the nv driver for NVIDIA graphics devices does not fully support the DisplayPort digital display interface. To prevent possible issues, this update disables this driver on the following chips that are known to have DisplayPort outputs:
FX4800 (PCI device ID 0x05fe) FX1800 (PCI device ID 0x0638) FX380 (PCI device ID 0x0658) FX580 (PCI device ID 0x0659) NVS450 (PCI device ID 0x06fa) NVS295 (PCI device ID 0x06fd)
Users with these chips may still use the nv driver by explicitly enabling it in the X.Org configuration, otherwise the vesa fallback driver will be used instead. ( BZ#566228)
All users of the xorg-x11-drv-nv driver should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
