Description: nvidia-smi is a util one can use to read the GPU temp without the need for X to be installed. It is included with the standard nvidia driver package, but not included with this package. I think it best belongs to this package.

Additional info:
* package version(s): nvidia-utils 195.36.15-1
* config and/or log files etc.

I am running the nvidia-ck package with the kernel26-ck package (both from the AUR) and have modified the PKGBUILD for nvidia-ck to install nvidia-smi and it works just fine. I simply added these three lines AFTER the sed -i -e "s/KERNEL_VERSION='.*'/KERNEL_VERSION='${_kernver}'/" $startdir/nvidia.install line:

cd $srcdir/NVIDIA-Linux-$ARCH-${pkgver}-pkg0
mkdir -p $pkgdir/usr/bin
install -m755 $srcdir/NVIDIA-Linux-$ARCH-${pkgver}-pkg0/usr/bin/nvidia-smi $pkgdir/usr/bin

Steps to reproduce: N/A
This task depends upon
