[Slackbuilds-users] nvidia-kernel vs. xorg.conf

Hello there,

Recently, a new bit of code, that will put an xorg.conf.d/device.conf to
the resulting package, has been added to the nvidia-kernel SlackBuild.

While this is convenient for most first time installs, it's less
convenient when updating, because the hardcoded device.conf will
overwrite any user-made changes and will clash with certain multi-head

I think I'd rather have the device.conf in the doc-directory and a hint
in the README. Still convenient for first-time installs, but won't break
existing setups. What do you think?
