If you use the Official NVIDIA-foo.run installer it installs all the GL stuff it needs and checks for conflicts in the process.

I'm wondering if he scrambled his GL* links between the open source driver/mesa and NVIDIA.

I doubt it. Upon initial boot up from a Slackware fresh install, it defaults to Nouveau and "stock" Mesa and GL, at least for me. At the first Runlevel 3 CLI, I use a prepared copy of the Nvidia .run file which ckhecks for GL and Mesa conflicts and usually asks 1) If I want it to attempt to blacklist Nouveau, and 2) If I want 32 bit compatibility installed. I don't have an estimate for how often the auto blacklist is successful, but more often than not. Besides that's not the point here. The point here is whether or not the Open Source Nouveau scrambles GL to where nVidia can't "unscramble" it. That has never been my experience in hundreds of installs.

In fact once about a year ago I saw a fairly major update to GL and Mesa so I downloaded those relevant packages, did an "upgradepkg --install-new" and then followed up by reinstalling nVidia with the .run installer. It worked perfectly.

This is what I got:

Code:
ls: cannot access '/usr/lib*/libGLX*': No such file or directory
Anyway I did (again).. a fresh install... and the nouveau are working smoothly..

I get
Code:
bash-5.0$ ls -l /usr/lib*/libGLX* | grep indirect
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      23 Aug  1 02:57 /usr/lib/libGLX_indirect.so.0 -> libGLX_nvidia.so.450.57
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      23 Aug  1 02:57 /usr/lib64/libGLX_indirect.so.0 -> libGLX_nvidia.so.450.57
Did you try to use the .run file by itself (not using a slackbuild)?
Code:
bash-5.0# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-450.57.run
I'm confused. Sorry I couldn't help.
