Found one but some details that I could see in the on board readme were
not in the in line readme... There are some problem with the in line
doc: I begin from the French nvidia web site and some information or
download are not easily available by this way (for instance I did not
found the 100.14.23 package. Once I was searching the last x86_64
driver, and I got it through the american web site)...

In fact I am searching information on "mobile" option: I read on some
list that this is important to have my laptop hibernating but it is not
clear at all: some say that this option must be set at 1 others at 3,
others at 4....

All what I could see is that this option must set but it is not well
working for my laptop (toshiba; hibernating and resuming take a long
time) and I would like to find the best way.

I try these "experiences" with the livna driver but I was wondering if
the "official" driver from nvidia was not better for this purpose.
