With work, the excitment of the upcoming new release, I got all in a tither. Here and the SBo mailing list, some of you had issues with the SBo Nvidia-driver.SlackBuild and had to revert to running nvidia *.run installer. Most of those were sillyb mistakes. My apologies.
Correct versions, and updated to include the big securty fix are here:
These are unofficial
, of course, but will be merged into SBo when things settle down.
The current Nvidia-driver.SlackBuild on Sbo is still missing one symlink that, under some conditions, will result in a "libvdpau_nvpau.so missing" error. The fix is:
ln -sf libvdpau_nvidia.so.3042.17 libvdpau_nvidia.so
or you can edit the Nvidia-driver.SlackBuild to put
ln -sf libvdpau_nvidia.so.$VERSION libvdpau_nvidia.so
under "#symlinks" and "# symlinks for optional 32-bit support"
Also note, that the current SBo version still copies the various glx.h files from the nvidia package. This will cause errors with some compiles (Firefox
ESR). You can update to the new version (see above), manually revert the glx.h-xorg files, or stop X, login as root and:
# nvidia-switch --remove
# nvidia-switch --install
Thanks to Niki Kovacs for that one.
That should do it. If anyone still has issues, post on LQ, the SBo mailing list or pop (or IMAP if you prefer
) me an email.
