Just one addition : Don't delete the unpacked nvidia driver sources after
installation. If you install a new kernel version, you can run
./nvidia-installer -aK -k <new kernel version>
to build the nvidia kernel driver module for the new kernel version before
booting the new kernel.
No need to boot into textmode first to reinstall the nvidia drivers any more.


Good tip. I was not aware this was possible.

As regards the <new kernel version>, is this one obtained from "uname
-r"? On the Pc here, it is "3.11.6-4-desktop".

Would the command be ./nvidia-installer -aK -k 3.11.6-4-desktop?
