This is the proprietary binary video driver from NVidia for the X.Org
X-server. This package does not include the kernel-module - it is a
part of the nvidia-kernel package at

NOTE: 64-bit x86_64 support ONLY for Slackware64. For x86 32-bit
support, use nvidia-legacy390-{driver,kernel}

The Wine libraries are now installed by default. To disable, pass
WINE="no" to the script.

Installing the 32-bit compatibility libraries is available:
if desired, do:

COMPAT32="yes" ./nvidia-legacy470-driver.SlackBuild

This script now gives the option of installing the nvidia-persitenced
daemon. For details, see README.nvidia-persitenced.

Several useful utilities are included: nvidia-xsettings, nvidia-smi,
and nvidia-settings. Please refer to the Nvidia documentation and
man pages for details and usage.

For CUDA/OpenCL to work after reboot, and for utilites such as
nvidia-smi, you might need to include the following line in your
(This is required if you plan on running nvidia-persistenced)

# Create missing nvidia device nodes after reboot
/usr/bin/nvidia-modprobe -c 0 -u

1. You still need to blacklist the open source nouveau driver.
This is easily done by installing xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist in
extra/xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist on the distibution DVD.

2. It is now no longer required to remove the old driver before
running this script.

3. With Slackware 15.0, nvidia-switch has been dropped once and for
all as there are no longer any conflicts.

CAUTION! Please DO NOT USE this script for Slackware(64) versions 14.2
or older as it WILL corrupt the mesa and xorg installations.
Please use the script from those repos instead.

The Nvidia 470.xx series will be supported through December 2024.
