Slackware64 nvidia-driver-compat32

EDIT: I added a new script for 195.36.24 as well as a script to compile libvdpau-compat32 on a 64 bit system. I never hear any feedback on this stuff... is it working for other people? Do I have errors anywhere?


ORIGINAL POST:
I'm one of those people that personally don't like installing things on my system without having proper packages made for tracking the files. As such I edited the scripts on SlackBuilds.org for an additional package to support this.

Attached is the build script and accompanying nvidia-switch32. You will need the binary package from nvidia that has pkg2.run on the end as it contains the required usr/lib32 directory.

Also, being that 32bit compatibility for the nvidia driver isn't actually a driver... perhaps calling it nvidia-driver-compat32 isn't exactly right. It is a few OpenGL libraries that get installed to /usr/lib. Maybe nvidia-libs-compat32. Either way, the name is not important. This package does not belong on SlackBuilds.org because they don't really have compat32 packages. Wine and Virtual box don't count.

I doubt this package/build script really has any other place that to be distributed here as an example for the stubborn.

Use and distribute as you wish.

Please provide feedback if you find errors.

    Lumak,

    Thanks for putting these scripts out for public consumption. They work well.

    Regards,
