I just noticed that nvidia-tls is in two places under each /usr/lib* directory.

Interestingly, the files under each directory are different and none are symlinks !

Note that I reinstalled the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-384.90.run this morning after installing linux-4.4.92

Anyhow ... see below

-- kjh

Code:
# for d in  /usr/lib /usr/lib64  ; do /bin/ls -lad $(find $d -type f -iname "libnvidia-tls*") ; echo "" ; done

kjhambrick,
what happens when you run '/usr/bin/32/glxgears' without the preload?

new computer with 1050

I just bought a new computer today with GT 1030 inside. I've picked the driver from Nvidia site by going through the menus, specifying what card and OS I have. Downloaded what has been offered, without checking version. Installation was clean, simple and flawless, worked like a charm. Without it, I was limited to 1024x768.

kjhambrick, thanks for the feedback. I have no idea why nvidia-installer is glitching on /usr/lib/tls/libnvidia-tls.so.384.90. I'm basically just doing what the .run script does anyway, but just adding options to send the installation to $PKG (ie /tmp/SBo/...) to make a portable package. I am using the nvidia-installer source instead of the pre-built binary in the Nvidia's .run script and blob. I've added a work around for now and will post the update to Slackbuilds.org.

Release highlights,
Its working good! There is one strange bug that was introduced in the last release but its not too big of a deal but its still present. It pauses the desktop for a second when loading a video in QMPlay2 the first time after booting/exiting suspend. It doesn't do it after that even after closing the application & starting it again.

As reported here,
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...re-4175620102/

NVIDIA will stop producing video drivers for 32-bit operating systems.

End of NVIDIA Driver Support for 32-bit Operating Systems
Answer ID 4604
Updated 12/21/2017 04:23 PM
When is the NVIDIA driver ending support for 32-bit operating systems?

After Release 390, NVIDIA will no longer release drivers for 32-bit operating systems1 for any GPU architecture. Later driver release versions will not operate, nor install, on 32-bit operating systems. Driver enhancements, driver optimizations, and operating system features in driver versions after Release 390 will not be incorporated back into Release 390 or earlier versions. This impacts the following operating systems:

Microsoft Windows 7
Microsoft Windows 8/8.1
Microsoft Windows 10
Linux
FreeBSD

NVIDIA intends to support critical driver security fixes until January 2019. For more details on product security, see http://www.nvidia.com/security.

1. Applicable to operating systems running on x64 and x32 CPU architectures.

I wonder if that means they're multilib support will be gone. If so, does that mean steam will no longer work or just 32bit steam games? I'm not sure if steam requires 32bit driver support to start up.

If 32bit support is completely removed, that may cause gamers in Linux to move to AMD with their open source amdgpu driver.
