Thanks, I had to install NVidia package with --dkms option to dkms build it at boot.

the issue with dkms is, when i have upgraded my kernel it usually breaks the building of the module from the Nvidia package and it usually means i need a fresh installer archive too

Yes, Nvidia usually isn't too forward thinking with kernel support, loving to play catch up after the fact. This is a bigger problem on -current or people who follow upstream kernel releases. However, if you're on 14.2 and following the kernel updates Pat puts out, you're less likely to run into issues (although, they still pop up occasionally).

Hey, who was it, who needed CUDA? I tried NvEnc with OBS on Slackware-current (430.26), and it appears to be working. (I took a quick desktop video, so nothing strenuous.) I know it was broken on Slackware 14.2 awhile ago.

Does OBS need some sort of NVidia SDK / Cuda or is FFmpeg + nv-codec-headers enough? My curiosity is mostly because I look after the nv-codec-headers slackbuild on SBO...

That I'm not entirely sure about? Cuda isn't overly useful for music, so this is the first time I've actually tried it with OBS.

I am not sure as well . There is a lot of confusing information online, I suspect because requirements for hardware GPU encoding has changed so much over the last year or so. On my own system however the installation of the latest FFmpeg compiled against the latest nv-codecs-headers package + NVidia 430.14 allows for great hardware GPU based encoding with a GTX 1660 Ti. But OBS I am not sure how they do it....

My card (GTX 960) doesn't really need a new driver, but 430.34 is running ok with the 5.2 kernel.
