I have installed Tahrpup 6.05 to my HDD.
All is running well, but need help with 2 issues.
I need to install the drivers for my nvidia card. I have the GT740.
Nvidia says I need the 352.79 driver.
I installed nvidia-libopencl1-352_352.63 with Puppy Package Manager.
It shows installed, but when I exit to prompt and run xorgwizard, it says Nvidia needs KMS. So it is still running the nouveau driver.
Did I install the wrong package? Should I remove it and start over?
My display looks great at 1920x1080 but when I try to run Guvcview to do some screencasting it will not open.
Any help you can provide is appreciated.
BTW, is Obs-studio available in Puppy?
Thanks!
Len

I figured out how to install and I have the 3.40 driver running.
Puppy is cool!
