Please use XFdrake to install nvidia proprietary drivers. You can run this program by selecting the "Set up the graphical server" item in the "Configure Your Desktop" menu or by running XFdrake command in the terminal. Then enter to Video Driver configuration and select proprietary driver (nvidia340).

The nvidia proprietary driver should not be installed via NVIDIA-Linux-*.run file directly. This may damage your system configuration.

Please also upload your hardware configuration and logs to our database before and after driver installation so that we can analyse them for errors:

su; hw-probe -all -upload -id PC_NAME

Thank you.

Sorry, but hw-probe fails the upload of my configuration with the following error:
curl: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libcurl.so.4: undefined symbol: SSL_CTX_set_srp_password
ERROR: failed to upload data, curl error code "127"
In any case I'm now running 343 series manually updated from rpmdrake and then patched to comply with kernel 3.18.x
