Fixed a resource leak introduced in the 390 series of drivers that could lead to reduced performance after starting and stopping several OpenGL and/or Vulkan applications.

Thanks cwizardone, but ...

Maybe I am doing it wrong ( or maybe NVidia pulled 390.87 ??? ).

When I ran cwizardone's link I was not offered 390.87 for my GForce GTX 970M.

And when I look in the repo: https://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/, there is no 390.87 in the directory either.

Maybe I am doing it wrong ...

Nvidia has updated their web site and your card is listed as supported by the 390.87
driver.
In the future, I'll wait until everything has been posted by Nvidia before listing it here.


Unlike some projects, Nvidia is a company that keeps normal business hours and it is only 10:00 Monday morning at their location on the West (Left) Coast of the U.S.

Looks like this is a reliable place to check for non-beta driver announcements:

If anyone interested, there is 410.48 version of driver available within newly released CUDA 10 installation package. I wasn't able to find the changelog for the driver, but it seems to be working fine. On the other side, it's a big disappointment that CUDA 10 is still not supporting GCC 8 - even if one tries to comment out check for GCC version in corresponding CUDA include file, large number of compile errors get spitted out for example when trying to build CUDA samples. Thus, if developing with CUDA on Slackware, one has to keep maintaining parallel GCC 7 installation.

I did not have the same experience. I downloaded the CUDA package, extracted the contents, and installed the driver, but all I got upon reboot, when going into X, was blank screens. The monitors were receiving a signal, but absolutely nothing was being shown. The driver itself was a normal installation, and I had no hint of anything going wrong. Perhaps this driver is tied to CUDA in a way that makes it unable to function without CUDA installed as well (which I don't, because I have no need for it ATM.) Some clarification or confirmation of my suspicions would be most helpful. Thanks!

It certainly has nothing to do with missing CUDA, as the dependency is other way around - CUDA cannot work without NVIDIA proprietary driver, while all versions of this driver install libcuda.so so that CUDA enabled apps could use GPU(s) for calculations.

In the meantime, it seems that even newer (410.57) version of driver appeared: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1041820. So you may want to check in the release notes is there any hint about your particular GPU, and eventually give it a try. If it doesn't work, you just need to run the driver installation package with "--uninstall" option, and it should properly clean itself (NVIDIA driver installers have always been, in my experience, very good in that regard), then install driver version that worked for you.
