I tried installing 410.57 and afterwards X failed with some segfaults reported. I didnt try 410.48.

I have been using 390.77 and 396.54 both of which seem to work ok.

My experience matched yours, except without the segfault; I also tried the newer driver, and I had the same result as before. Most curious. I wonder what it is about this series of drivers that causes it not to work. Since I have no interest in troubleshooting when I have "older" but working drivers available, I will keep an eye on these developments to see if anything changes.

YMMV, but at work, with a nvidia 1050Ti, the 410.57 drivers work fine.
at home, with older cards, I'm happily using the 390.87 ones.

What are your graphics cards? 410.57 works fine with Pascal.

Nice card! I stand corrected.

Maybe you guys should report it to NVIDIA: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/board/98/linux/

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

ViewSonic VX2776 Series (DP-0),
Wacom Tech Cintiq 13HD (DVI-D-0)

The display card also has a second dvi port and
an HDMI port.

The HDMI port I often use for a projector when doing lectures or meetings. I use a HDMI->VGA adaptor when the projector requires VGA. I usually have another monitor attached to that one when in the office.

It is a luggable machine with an airline carryon sized case it can drop into along with the cables. I use the Wacom Cintiq with OpenBoard to do presentations. OpenBoard is a great bit of software but is it a bear to get running on Slackware as it requires like a zillion deps and some libraries from Ubuntu Debian Linux.

I can annotate slides and draw graphs and pictures and move stuff around and add in files of any sort and save it all as .pdfs and with the stone cold reliability of Slackware.

The other dvi port can be used with a 4th monitor for running something in the background like vlc playing music or some number crunching or long download, etc.

I try to stay current with the latest Nvidia drivers because I hope that they help maintain the reliability of my setup.

I am using the 390.87 driver now.

If it were me I'd --uninstall the driver. Then see if
Code:
/usr/lib[64]/libGL.so.1.2
  /usr/lib[64]/libGL.la
  /usr/lib[64]/libGLESv1_CM.so.1.0.0
  /usr/lib[64]/libGLESv2.so.2.0.0
  /usr/lib[64]/libEGL.so.1.0.0
  /usr/lib[64]/xorg/modules/libwfb.so
  /usr/lib[64]/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so
is still there. If it is I'd remove it.

Wow a Cintiq! I bet that is fun to use.

A fresh install of slackware-64-current accepts the 410.57 driver without any problems.

I use the cintiq for lectures and meetings. it is very cool
even though it is a simple 13 inch and not the high end professional artist model.
My luggable machine has enough video ports to let me take
good advantage of it in meetings.

The openboard software allows saving presentations as podcast video or as .pdfs.

The pdf feature is great for meetings because on can send out the screen notes as a
reminder of what was decided (if anything) at the meeting. One can also
sign .pdfs with it.

Openboard sounds nice. I've seen people use something like that for Windows.

410.66

Nvidia has released their latest "Long Lived Branch" driver, version 410.66.

https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driv...x/138959/en-us

This driver is 64-bit only.

Release highlights:
Quote:
Added support for the following GPUs:
GeForce RTX 2070
GeForce RTX 2080 Ti
GeForce RTX 2080
Quadro P5200 with Max-Q Design
Quadro P4200 with Max-Q Design
Quadro P2000 with Max-Q Design
Added a graphics API visual indicator. It can be toggled through nvidia-settings' "OpenGL Settings" panel, the
__GL_SHOW_GRAPHICS_OSD environment variable, or the GLShowGraphicsOSD application profile. See the README for more information.
Added support for X11 RandR transformations on outputs where the NVIDIA X driver is used as a synchronized RandR 1.4 output source (i.e., "PRIME Sync").
Fixed a bug that caused OpenGL corruption on outputs where the NVIDIA X driver was used as an RandR 1.4 output source (i.e., "PRIME"), and the output sink required a software cursor.
Fixed an X driver RandR output source (i.e., "PRIME") bug that could cause a duplicate cursor to appear on such outputs.
Exposed EGL 1.5 in the EGL version string. This does not add any extra functionality to the EGL driver. All EGL 1.5 features were already supported through EGL 1.4 plus extensions.
Added the OptiX ray tracing engine, libnvoptix.so.1, to the driver package.
This library is loaded by the liboptix.so.* library bundled with applications that use the OptiX API.
Updated nvidia-installer to allow the --no-cc-version-check option to disable the compiler version check when installing with DKMS.
Added experimental support for VK_EXT_global_priority.
Removed support for the VK_NV_glsl_shader Vulkan extension. This extension was added before the Vulkan ecosystem had mature SPIR-V compilers and tools. Now that the SPIR-V compilers and tools have advanced, Vulkan developers are encouraged to use SPIR-V instead of GLSL.
Fixed a bug that caused VDPAU-decoded H.265/HEVC content to have
interlaced artifacts when shared with OpenGL through the GL_NV_vdpau_interop extension.
Implemented support for Vulkan real-time ray tracing extensions
(VK_NV_raytracing). Two new libraries, libnvidia-rtcore.so and libnvidia-cbl.so, have been added to support the new functionality. These new libraries are needed by Vulkan at run-time to expose the new extension. If they are not found, Vulkan will continue to work without VK_NV_raytracing support.
Removed OpenGL header files from the installer package, which were
deprecated and not installed by default since release 260.19.04, but could still be installed with the '--opengl-headers' option. If your distribution doesn't provide a package with headers, up-to-date headers can be found at these locations: https://www.khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php https://github.com/NVIDIA/libglvnd/t...ter/include/GL
Added a USB-C connector type identifier, such that a display connected
using the USB-C connector that was previously reported as e.g. DP-5 will now be USB-C-0. Scripts and configuration files that use the DP identifier for this connector will be affected.
Edit in: Installed and running well with -current and the 4.18.14 kernel.
