Will sgfxi support using glvnd installation of the Nvidia driver?

See https://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/98373/en-us

By default, nvidia-installer will install the legacy, non-GLVND GLX client libraries. The --glvnd-glx-client command line option can be used to override the default, and install the GLVND GLX client libraries instead. Please contact the vendors of any applications that are not compatible with GLVND to ensure that their applications be updated for compatibility with GLVND.

I can add an option to make that happen, but I won't take any responsibility for the results.

New Nvidia installer is already using GLVND mode by default: https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/101818/en-us

Changed the default OpenGL installation type to use the GLVND GLX client libraries rather than the legacy non-GLVND libraries.


I guess sgfxi will do that as well?

If the run package defaults to that, from nvidia, then so will sgfxi.
