Re: Precise xswat nvidia driver 304.43 big problem
On my computer nvidia 304.43, downloaded from nvidia.com runs sweetly on Precise, both 12.04 & 12.0-4.1 but not when downloaded from XSwat as nvidia-current.
But then I have never found the Xswat drivers work on my set-up since the 295.40 catastrophe, so I dont trust it.
Running nvidia-installer -f, or sh NVIDIA.xx.xx.xxx.run -f does un-install any existing nvidia driver - or tries to - whereas with nvidia-current you have to deactivate or remove --purge the previous version - whatever its name - before installing another, whether from a PPA, with Additional Drivers, or Synaptic.

They did things differently in those days, apparently!!
