If you look at your examples you can see that settings are missing from the Nvidia generated xorg.conf.
Sure, the basic monitor settings are there, some basic default input device settings, and that is about all.
Well, that is what you get the very first time you boot Puppy, default xorg.conf settings.
Nvidia xorg.conf got monitor setting changes into xorg.conf, but dropped custom settings for other settings in xorg.conf

Other Puppy config programs put stuff into xorg.conf.
Nvidia X server Settings program knows nothing about other Puppy settings that can be in xorg.conf


The Nvidia driver is being controlled by a different settings file when it is loaded and controlling graphics hardware.
A hidden file that the Nvidia Xserver settings program controls.
/root/.nvidia-settings-rc

Shinobar: 1.5 pet solves everything in xenial64. I can't believe it. All the library conflicts are gone. This bug had years (blaming wine developers didn't help at all).
Thank you very much.

LE (complete results):
a) tahr64 and xenial64 (most important), 340 driver - I've found nothing wrong
b) beaver64 presents the following issues:
- "xwin" command doesn't start xorg, after an apparently flawless installation.
- xorg log said that nvidia driver couldn't be loaded, and nouveau was nowhere to be found - therefore black screen. I reloaded the nvidia.sfs from a fresh savefile and it worked after I manually chose "nvidia" in xorgwizard.
- tested with wine and a glx library error occured, this time explicitly saying that I have the wrong lib32 library
- mpv didn't start, again some library error.
- I remade the sfs without the silent option. A series of writing errors appeared in connecton with cuda library and something else, basically saying some version of cuda is already installed and if I want to bypass it.

I realize that this is a bad report. I should post the exact errors, but again, beaver64 is not fully ready. If you think it's the right time, I'll post them.
Imho, if 1.5 performs well with newer drivers maybe is enough. This is a 10+ years video card though.
