Re: nvidia 295.xx for Ubuntu 12.10
Hi!, dannyboy79, et alia,
That was true for the 295.xxx nvidia drivers and before, but not for 304.xx onwards.
So, YES, if you're running an nvidia driver from their website that gets installed via their script, it will need to be reinstalled when a kernel upgrade occurs so that it can be compiled against the new kernel.
The recent nvidia.com drivers are DKMS compatible, so the kernal module gets updated, just as it does with the Ubuntu ppa nvidia-current drivers.
