Hi Ed

Can you also fix the following typos?

The README for nvidia-driver.SlackBuild states :

GLVND GLX client libraries are noe the default. If these cause any
compatibility issues with older GLX sofware, either upgrade your software
or try:
  GLNVD="no" ./nvidia-driver.SlackBuild

The first typo is in the first sentence. It should be 'now' instead of

The second typo is in the example. It should be GLVND instead of GLNVD.
I realized this when I copied and pasted the example and ended up
building unwanted libraries
