Ty for linking that, im a sucker for a beta driver
Seems to be working fine here too with the latest current. In fact it seems a bit faster than the 3.52 it replaced.

yes your correct like I posted earlier it was 32 bit problem this is from the change log for the 364.12

Fixed a bug that caused installer manifest entries for some 32-bit compatibility libraries to be duplicated in the installer package.

The 361.xx drivers are tricky, whether via SBo or running Nvidia'a install script. There are 2 sets of libraries: GLVND (new hotness) and non-GLVND (old and busted) and there can only be one set installed. This can also result in more conflicts with Mesa, as well as issues with EGL and GLES. Be aware that 364.xx installs GLVND GLX client libraries by default. Although this fixed some lib conflicts, it can also result in incompatibilities with older OpenGL software.

See also: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/915640

Edit: Note that the SBo packages are hand-crafted to avoid Nvidia installer compatibility issues for both pure and multilib Slackware.

NVidia's new long term driver 361.42, fixes the problem with the 361.28 driver.

The problem with the 361.28 NVidia driver has been fixed with the release of their new long term driver version 361.42.
Among the "fixes" are, as Drakeo pointed out in post #17,

Just wanted those interested to know that using the 364.12-Beta i have been experiencing crashes and one hard freeze in quake2 (the jdolan improved aprq2 executable) going back to the 3.52.63 seems to have fixed the problem.

NVidia has released the 364.15-beta driver.

Among other things it,

Quote:

Added support for the following GPUs:
Quadro M6000 24GB
Fixed several EGL driver interaction problems with resizing windows in Wayland.
Fixed a bug that caused some DRM PRIME configurations to fail when DRM KMS was enabled (i.e., nvidia-drm.ko's modeset kernel module parameter was set to "1").
Fixed a bug that could cause a kernel crash when VDPAU was used while DRM KMS was enabled.
Updated the libglvnd snapshot included in the NVIDIA driver package to libglvnd commit b7d75429677eecc00c3701aaa4deac1304bc51ff. This contains a new revision of the libglvnd ABI. The driver is not compatible with a libglvnd older than commit c5bcda3b848fe52d6ae6ef25c917431c06d62d27.
Limited the default concurrency level in nvidia-settings to 32, to avoid hitting the maximum tasks limit on systems with many CPUs.

Just FYI, google-earth will not work with the 364.16 driver (at least not on this box).

The Nvidia 364.19 driver has been released.

The production version of the Nvidia 364.19 driver has been released.

Quote:
Added support for the following GPUs:
Quadro M6000 24GB
Quadro M5500
Fixed some locking issues in libnvidia-egl-wayland.so.
Fixed several libnvidia-egl-wayland.so interaction problems with buffer management Wayland protocols.
Fixed several EGL driver interaction problems with resizing windows in Wayland.
Fixed a bug that caused some DRM PRIME configurations to fail when DRM KMS was enabled (i.e., nvidia-drm.ko's modeset kernel module parameter was set to "1").
Fixed a bug that could cause a kernel crash when VDPAU was used while DRM KMS was enabled.
Changed the default OpenGL installation type to use the GLVND GLX client libraries rather than the legacy non-GLVND libraries.
Added initial support for Direct Rendering Manager Kernel Modesetting (DRM KMS).See the DRM KMS section of the README for details.
Added a new kernel module, nvidia-drm.ko, which registers as a DRM driver with both PRIME and DRM KMS support.
Added support for the following EGL extensions:

EGL_EXT_platform_wayland

to enable Wayland applications to run on NVIDIA's EGL implementation,

EGL_WL_bind_wayland_display

to enable Wayland compositors to run on NVIDIA's EGL implementation, and

EGL_EXT_device_drm
EGL_EXT_output_drm
EGL_EXT_stream_consumer_egloutput

to enable Mir and Wayland compositors to display their content through EGLDevice, EGLOutput, and EGLstreams.

Added a Wayland platform library, libnvidia-egl-wayland.so, to allow Wayland compositors that support EGLDevice, EGLOutput, and EGLstreams to share EGL buffers with Wayland applications.
Fixed a bug that could cause incorrect frame rate reporting on Quadro Sync configurations with multiple GPUs.
Added support for the Vulkan API version 1.0.
Improved X colormap precision from 8 significant bits to 11 on GeForce GPUs.Quadro GPUs already used 11 bits of precision.
Added a new RandR property, CscMatrix, which specifies a 3x4 color-space conversion matrix.The matrix is applied after the X colormap and before the gamma ramp.This property is available on GF119 and newer GPUs.
Improved handling of the X gamma ramp on GF119 and newer GPUs.On these GPUs, the RandR gamma ramp is always 1024 entries and now applies to the cursor and VDPAU or workstation overlays in addition to the X root window.
Reworked how the NVIDIA driver registers with the Linux kernel's DRM subsystem for PRIME support.As a result, PRIME support requires Linux kernel version 3.13 or newer (previously, PRIME support required Linux kernel version 3.10 or newer).
Improved the interactivity of applications that use a hardware cursor while G-SYNC is active.

This one works with google-earth.

The Nvidia 367.18-*Beta* Driver has been released.

The latest Driver from Nvidia, the 3667.18-Beta, has been released with the following fixes and updates:

Quote:
Fixed a bug that would cause OpenGL applications to crash when creating a context on one X display connection, then making it current with no associated drawable on another X display connection. This fixes a crash when starting some versions of Matlab.
Fixed OpenGL presentation to SDI through the GLX_NV_video_out and GLX_NV_present_video extensions, which was broken by the introduction of the nvidia-modeset kernel module in 358.09.
Fixed a bug that caused an incorrect offset to be applied when using the full composition pipeline on a display whose image has both a rotation and a ViewportOut offset applied.
Fixed a bug that could cause nvidia-settings to crash on some systems when responding to events such as hotplugging DisplayPort devices.
Fixed a bug that could cause crashes in OpenGL applications which use glTextureView() with a non-zero minlevel.
Enhanced the Display Device information page in nvidia-settings with additional information for DisplayPort devices to reflect attributes which are specific to DisplayPort connections.
Fixed a bug which could cause deleted application profiles to appear when editing rules in the nvidia-settings control panel.
Fixed a bug that caused hangs when a G-SYNC monitor is unplugged and a non-G-SYNC monitor is connected while G-SYNC is active.
Fixed a bug that caused "nvidia-modeset: ERROR: GPU:0: Activating G-SYNC failed" to be printed to the system log if a G-SYNC monitor is connected and stereo is enabled in xorg.conf on a configuration that doesn't support it.
Added the NV_robustness_video_memory_purge OpenGL extension, which allows applications to know when a mode switching or power event purged the contents of FBOs and BOs residing in video memory.
Fixed a bug that prevented HDMI 2.0 4K monitors from waking up from sleep or hot-replug.
Fixed a bug that sometimes prevented flipping from being enabled on systems with multiple displays.
Fixed a bug that could cause applications to crash when using the EGL_EXT_platform_device extension on a system with multiple GPUs.
Fixed a bug that could cause nvidia-installer's runtime loader test to fail spuriously on some systems.
The NVIDIA Unified Virtual Memory kernel module, nvidia-uvm.ko, now has a minimum kernel requirement of Linux 2.6.32. On older kernel versions, nvidia-uvm.ko will be compiled as a stub kernel module which does not provide any functionality.
Updated the libglvnd snapshot included in the NVIDIA driver package to libglvnd commit b7d75429677eecc00c3701aaa4deac1304bc51ff. This contains a new revision of the libglvnd ABI. The driver is not compatible with a libglvnd older than commit c5bcda3b848fe52d6ae6ef25c917431c06d62d27....
Edit in: Working perfectly on this box. <--strke that.

Well, I've had some trouble with the desktop wallpaper suddenly disappearing, so the 367.18-Beta driver has been removed, the short term 364.19 driver re-installed, and all has returned to what passes for "normal."
