View Full Version : [ubuntu] Drivers, Upgrades, and such.

I guess I am a little confused.

I recently upgraded from 2.6.28-14, and then had to re-load my Nvidia drivers. I know I upgraded the kernel, but I am still confused as to why the video drivers needed to be updated as well.

Hopefully someone can shed some light on this.

Did you install the drivers from the repositories or from Nvidia? If they're from Nvidia the system can't update them, or recompile the module.

I downloaded the driver and ran it from the terminal. The repository doesn't have the 185 driver.
