I am curious as to why niki said both tarballs downloaded. Yes, for
Slack64 it doesn't matter which one you use for nvidia-kernel.
However, I put a switch in for nividia-driver to default to looking
for "-no-compat32" for the 64 bit purists. The default was the
opposite in nvidia-kernel and should have been the same (see readme).
That way you d/l just the one you want and not both.

What I might do, is just set up the script to require the full package
(64+32 bit) and a switch fo allow the choice during package creation.
That might be a lot simpler that having decide which one to download.

Ok thumbs tired on this blackberry. Back to chicken wings and beer...
