Which nvidia driver?
I installed my Slackware 14.0 on my system when it had an Athlon II X2 250, which is 32bit and 64bit. I installed it as 32bit to skip the headaches and such.
Out of habit, I installed the Nvidia driver (from nvidia, not the opensource stuff) which is the 32bit.
I recently upgraded some hardware, specifically the MoBo and the CPU with the new cpu being an AMD FX-6300, which, I think, is only 64bit.
Do the nvidia drivers work according to the software installed as in my Slackware is 32 bit so I *must* install the nvidia 32bit package?
Does the driver go by the hardware that it runs off of? As in my cpu now being a 64bit only.
I've installed the latest x86 310.32 driver and things seem to be working fine (though I have no idea how to tell if it's running 3d as it should or not). Will installing the x86_64 310.32 driver be the better one or not?
