but the glx alternative does not add it as a slave and link it to

Which nvidia/cuda packages do you have installed?

dpkg -l | grep -E 'nvidia|cuda'

(i.e. for which usage scenario do you want to use nvidia-persistenced?)


Notes to myself:
* nvidia-persistenced does not have a dependency on a driver component
(either xorg driver or libcuda1)
* nvidia-alternative-glx probably needs to put libnvidia-cfg.so.1 into
misc_slaves to be available on cudaonly
* nvidia-alternative-glx: lib*_mesa_slaves should look in mesa-diverted
first, all the /mesa/ path bits can go away - that was never used
