Revert to pristine state after installing nvidia-driver?
One of my boxes is a dual-boot buildbox for Slackware-13.37 and Slackware64-13.37. It has an NVidia GeForce 6150 graphic card, so I installed the nvidia-driver and nvidia-kernel packages from SlackBuilds.org
The nvidia-driver package contains 'nvidia-switch', a little command-line utility, to switch between libraries replaced by the proprietary driver package and those shipping with X.org.
Only this switch doesn't seem to revert my system to the old state. When trying to compile applications like wxGTK or Firefox ESR, I get complaints about a missing /usr/include/GL/glx.h, and the build exits.
Is there another way to restore my install, e. g. reinstall some of the X.org packages? But which one? I'm a bit lost here.
