[Slackbuilds-users] [Slackbuilds-user] nvidia update

Just an FYI to the list: I've submitted new proprietary nvidia scripts 
for the 302.17 Short Lived Branch as there were tons of useful updates 
and improvements.  There are a few caveats:

1.  nvidia-switch is for install and and removal only.  I will no longer 
support switching nvidia and F/OSS on-the-fly.  Pick one and stick with it.
2.  No support for any hybrid systems.  It's not as simple as just 
swapping xorg.conf since nvidia stomps on several files.  I will revisit 
this issue when I have more time.  There are a couple of ways to support 
this seamlessly and I have to check some kernel parameters.
3.  Although the nvidia-driver script can add the 32-bit files for 
Slackware64 multilib systems, multilib is still not supported.  If you 
use the COMPAT32 option, make sure you keep any eye on "/usr/lib" when 
you remove the nvidia drivers and go back to F/OSS 32-bit compatibility
