    Anyone who already tried this with Hardy?

    Thanks. I'm running Hardy. I was hoping that envy would help me install these, but it doesn't do so. I'd prefer not to install them manually because doing so with previous versions interfered with me reinstalling a the official/repo drivers.

    BTW, I am interested in these drivers because of a bug in recent drivers that I hope they fixed.

    I installed the driver in livecd mode on my laptop to see if there was any difference. A major bug which caused the display to be corrupted when doing certain tasks appears to have been fixed. I'll wait for envyng to be upgraded rather than attempt through the loopy nvidia installer though.
