Default automated installation of 32-bit compatibility libraries

Hi,

During an interactive installation, the installer asks whether we want to install the compatibility 32-bit libraries (and I reply "yes", I need them).

I see no equivalent option for NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8774-pkg2.run, an option that would install the 32-bit compatibility libraries alongside the 64-bit ones. Am I missing something?

I'm currently using these options:
-s -n -k

Default Re: automated installation of 32-bit compatibility libraries

The 32bit compatibility libraries are installed by default if you perform a silent (-s) installation.

Thanks,

Great! I haven't seen this documented anywhere though. Maybe it should be documented in the README and also in the in the -s option help printed by the -A option.

Also, maybe an option should be added to not install the 32-bit compatibility libraries for those that don't want them.

This behavior is documented, though it may not be completely obvious: the -s/--silent option implies the -q/--no-questions option, which instructs `nvidia-installer` to assume the default, yes, for all questions normally asked (please see the manual page for details). I guess a set of explicit options for the 32-bit compatibility libraries could be useful, but those who don't need the libraries could just use the -pkg0 variant of the .run installer.
