Can't the slackbuilds script be used with Porteus?

@evan:
nvidia drivers have to be built according to your card and according to kernel, devel and krippled kernel sources. Porteus might have a different kernel than slackware version:

Unless, I am wrong. It has been many years since I had to build a nvidia driver. But it was really simple, once you know how to do it. :)

Shame we can't get the drivers from USM as it would make life so much easier , especially with updating instead of having to re-build.
