Getting nvml_fix to work adequately on Debian

nvml_fix is an excelent piece of hackery. It gets your nvidia-smi showing some stats usually only “supported” on flagship GPU's. Go check out the link for more information.

There's a small perk, though. README mentions dpkg-divert etc. but it won't solve the problem. Install nvidia-smi package as normal, then rename the symbolic link to (like …so.666.66). Then do the make install accordingly. The reason is: is nvml_fix hacking itself into the middle, but it still needs to find the original Nvidia library. If you run ldd, you can see where it expects to find the original library.

And voilà

Source: idk, I just ran into that mess a bit too many times.
