Slackware does not install any Nvidia packages. They are left to the users to build and install.

I am using 195.36.31 and have been for a long time. That is what I'm using on 3.5.10 too, where I don't see this behavior.

Is changing the Nvidia package the answer? Many people are going to be attracted to TDE because of the potential to run on older hardware. If those people have older Nvidia cards they will be using legacy drivers.
