[SUA 252-1] Updated nVidia driver packages

Debian Stable Updates Announcement SUA 252-1     https://www.debian.org
debian-release@lists.debian.org                        Andreas Beckmann

This update addresses problems in three non-free driver packages supporting
nVidia graphics cards.
The Linux kernel released in Debian 12.5 changed an inlined function to
call two GPL-only symbols, making that function inaccessible to non-free
kernel modules.

As a result, the nVidia kernel modules cannot be built via DKMS at
installation time for the updated kernel. This issue could not be resolved
in time for the release of Debian 12.5.

In addition, the source packages nvidia-graphics-drivers and
nvidia-settings now build binaries for ppc64el, and
nvidia-graphics-drivers-tesla builds transitional packages to ease future

The following packages have been updated to correct the problem:

    Source package                     Fixed version
    ==============                     =============
    nvidia-graphics-drivers            525.147.05-7~deb12u1
    nvidia-graphics-drivers-tesla      525.147.05-7~deb12u1
    nvidia-graphics-drivers-tesla-470  470.223.02-4~deb12u1
    nvidia-settings                    525.147.05-1~deb12u1
