Hi generix I have uploaded the .gz file as attachment.

You installed the driver without opengl

nvidia-installer command line:

Without glx, there’s no vsync so anything will tear.
Furthermore, you should use the --dkms option for the driver to survive kernel updates.

Thanks generix, problem solved.
