Default Re: HELP "execution attempt in: /usr/lib64/opengl/nvidia/lib/"

PAX protects against things SELinux doesn't like preventing programs from writing code in their data region and thexecuting it like the nvidia driver apparently does. You can see why that is a security risk.
Selinux does the same, programs are not allowed to execute code unless explicitly granted.

The nvidia-installer labels the files "textrel_shlib_t" which let selinux allow it to do what it does.
