"working, stable" until the next time libGL gets updated in Fedora and your
overwritten libGL gets replaced with the system version.

NVidia still doesn't understand that you need to use to
override the library with a custom version, not go berserk overwriting
files, so their installer is the quickest way to break your system. They
also overwrite other system files, not just libGL.
