I only new help on the syntax of this command as shown below:

--opengl-libdir=OPENGL-LIBDIR
The path relative to the OpenGL library installation prefix
under which the NVIDIA OpenGL components will be installed.
The default is 'lib' on 32bit systems, and 'lib64' or 'lib'
on 64bit systems, depending on the installed Linux
distribution. Only under very rare circumstances should
this option be used.

I want to install some NVIDIA OPENGL files in a directory separate from other OPENGL files that have been previuosly installed. This is a NVIDIA driver install. Let us assume all is well, except I am unsure of the syntax. The reason is that I read that the path is relative to the OPENGL installation prefix which is /usr/. This it would seem easier to put it in via absolute path. I should say I am clear on the difference in the syntax of absolute and relative paths, but why use a relative path here? If that must be used here - then what is the syntax?

Respectfully,
