[Slackbuilds-users] Problem after nvidia-driver and nvidia-kernel install

I think since the proprietary Nvidia driver replaces some components
such as libGL, that may be the cause of some programs not running when
swapped to another box. It may also depend on if the lib is dynamic or
static linked. This is just off the top of my head - I haven't coded
seriously since Z80 CP/M days.

Personally, if I can't build on the box that will run it, I do the
builds in a straight up stock slackware VM (qemu or Virtualbox). That
way I get fewer surprises.
