Installation instructions: Once you have downloaded the driver, change to the directory containing the driver package and install the driver by running, as root, sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.87.run
One of the last installation steps will offer to update your X configuration file. Either accept that offer, edit your X configuration file manually so that the NVIDIA X driver will be used, or run nvidia-xconfig
For Maximus systems (Quadro + Tesla in the same system), download the latest recommended Quadro driver. Quadro drivers are qualified for workstations and rendering applications, including Maximus configurations that use Quadro for visualization and Tesla GPUs for compute acceleration.
