It includes these utilities in the package; nvidia-settings, nvidia-smi, glxinfo and glxgerars. To cut down the size (this pet expanded requires about 45 Megabytes), I left out the vdpu and cuda libraries. If you really need them, either post or provide a "PM" to me.

The pet, Luci_Nvidia-256.35-k2.6.33.2-p5.pet, is available at two places:

http://dotpups.de/puppy4/dotpups/XServer/

and

http://puppyfiles.ca/dotpupsde/puppy4/dotpups/XServer/

with a user name of puppy and password of linux.

The installation script makes a backup (/etc/X11/xorg.conf.back) of the original X server configuration.

It includes an un-install script. The un-install script restores the orignal X server configuration. After un-installing (or removal) of the nvidia driver pet, you need to exit t the command prompt (i.e. no xserver running). First command needed is "rmmod nvidia" to remove the nvidia kernel module. The second command is reboot. A reboot is needed! I have found that nvidia leaves something in memory (maybe something with glx) that causes the xserver to startup with "xwin" to fail. The reboot results in a clean configuration and proper operation.

The pet has a documentation directory (/root/nvidia-doc) with a information text file and the man page for the two nvidia utilities in text format.

Thanks to forum member MU, who has made server space available for this and other pets.

Feedback is always welcome. I hope this helps.

Hi JustGreg

Neat instructions in the pinstall.sh. I will duplicate that and put it in the nVidia driver help in Quickpet, it's close as is, but better to be the same. It displays in nicoedit and it prints out just fine (so long as the user has configured the printer Wink )

As for the driver, configured without a fuss,

Cheers
