Constantly having trouble with the Nvidia drivers install.

Quick howto:

If there is already any NVdiai driver installed, then run :

telinit 1 #to go to single user mode

sudo /usr/bin/nvidia-installer --latest

If to be installed freshly:

sudo su -
cd /root
cat latest

This tells you the latest version then you can


I have no idea why

wget`cat latest.txt| awk '{print $2}'`

doesnt work, I will need to look into this deeper.


telinit 1
cd /root
apt-get remove nouveau* 


Reboot afterwards
