I second the Nux-dextop repo .. If you have an nvidia graphics card, you
will need to run the nvidia proprietary drivers.

You need the nvidia drivers that that have 32bit drivers as well.

The last version that works and seems to have 32bit support is the
390x.xx series:


That is what I use on CentOS-7 with an NVIDIA card and I play Civ6 on
CentOS-7 via Steam (Steam initially installed via the nux-dextop repo ..
then updated as necessary from Steam).

If you install a new xorg-x11-server update, you will need to recompile
the NVIDIA drivers as it replaces some CentOS files for GL.
