Nvidia 352.41 Playing Bad with GNU/Linux Slackware

A Gaming Laptop working well under a GNU/Linux distribution is not a dream anymore. Though some unwanted drivers like the intel management engine that go undetected is a blessing in disguise, most devices already have a driver in the Linux Kernel. Some of them have to be instructed to be loaded while others are proprietary needing some manually intervention and configuration in some rare cases.
