Cookbook which installs the NVIDIA binary Xorg driver.

Tested on 10.14.4 but newer and older version should work just fine. File an issue if this isn't the case.
The following platforms have been tested with this cookbook, meaning that the recipes and LWRPs run on these platforms without error:
- ubuntu (12.04)
Please report any additional platforms so they can be added.
There are no external cookbook dependencies.
Depending on the situation and use case there are several ways to install this cookbook. All the methods listed below assume a tagged version release is the target, but omit the tags to get the head of development. A valid Chef repository structure like the Opscode repo is also assumed.
To install this cookbook from the Opscode platform, use the knife command:
knife cookbook site install ubuntu_nvidia_gpu
gem install librarian cd chef-repo librarian-chef init
To use the Opscode platform version:
echo "cookbook 'ubuntu_nvidia_gpu'" >> Cheffile librarian-chef install
Or to reference the Git version:
cat >> Cheffile <<END_OF_CHEFFILE cookbook 'ubuntu_nvidia_gpu', :git => 'https://github.com/fnichol/chef-ubuntu_nvidia_gpu', :ref => 'v0.1.0' END_OF_CHEFFILE librarian-chef install
The knife-github-cookbooks gem is a plugin for knife that supports installing cookbooks directly from a GitHub repository. To install with the plugin:
gem install knife-github-cookbooks cd chef-repo knife cookbook github install fnichol/chef-ubuntu_nvidia_gpu/v0.1.0
If the cookbook needs to downloaded temporarily just to be uploaded to a Chef Server or Opscode Hosted Chef, then a tarball installation might fit the bill:
cd chef-repo/cookbooks curl -Ls https://github.com/fnichol/chef-ubuntu_nvidia_gpu/tarball/v0.1.0 | tar xfz - && \ mv fnichol-chef-ubuntu_nvidia_gpu-* ubuntu_nvidia_gpu
A dated practice (which is discouraged) is to add cookbooks as Git submodules. This is accomplished like so:
cd chef-repo git submodule add git://github.com/fnichol/chef-ubuntu_nvidia_gpu.git cookbooks/ubuntu_nvidia_gpu git submodule init && git submodule update
Note: the head of development will be linked here, not a tagged release.

There are no resources and providers in this cookbook.
Pull requests are very welcome! Make sure your patches are well tested. Ideally create a topic branch for every separate change you make.
