I found that the 6111 version amd64 driver installer installs the 64 bit
OpenGL libs in the right place but then overwrites them with the 32 bit
ones, which is why you see a few error messages while installing.

I have a script attached which unpacks the archive and puts the files
where I think they should go. It could be wrong, but the UT2004 amd64
demo works nicely after running it. Run it in a directory with the
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6111-pkg2.run file.
