I am a new CentOS 7 Linux desktop user. I need to use Nvidia software for my video editing software and other purposes. How do I install the Nvidia driver on CentOS 7 Linux?

While searching for a working driver for CentOS7 / RHEL 7 as well, I came across this page: https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads?target_os=Linux&target_arch=x86_64&target_distro=RHEL&target_version=7&target_type=rpmnetwork

It offers a repo file and a rpm for the NVidia driver (however not the very latest one).

Hope that helps to easy the process a little bit.
