Hi,

Just gave the new nvidia GFX driver repo, and wanted to say that it works
like a charm once the installation preconditions are met!

However, for the benefits of people with bad reading comprehension like me,
it would be great if future versions of the RPMs could attempt to detect a
manually installed NVidia driver before installation, and either have it
uninstalled automagically or have the RPM installation abort with a "please
remove manually installed driver first" message.

The former has been implemented now via preinstall scriptlet of KMP. Will be
fixed with the next update of the driver RPMs.

Thanks,
Stefan
