I've also added a section "InputDevice" from the older xorg.conf but possibly it isnt needed.
So nvidia driver is loading, mouse and keyboard works but there are some problems with libGL* libraries. glxgears says ELF class is wrong... (( Last edited by takenp on Tue 16 Oct 2018, 03:18; edited 1 time in total

The puppy version is bionicpup64 7.9.5?
That is the latest release and the one to be using.
Have you done Quickpet>Info>Bionicpup updates?
Did you get the 64 bit version of the Nvidia driver?
You are sure that is the correct driver for your hardware?
The one Nvidia web site recommends? _________________ The things they do not tell you, are usually the clue to solving the problem.

I have had the same issue repeatedly with various Pups. I have found that at the end of the compile process Nvidia asks to re-write it's own xorg.conf file. Don't do that, and then run Puppy's xorgwizard and select nvidia and the keyboard works.
