View Full Version : [ubuntu] Prevent aptitude from replacing nvidia proprietary drivers

February 7th, 2013, 06:59 PM

I have a bit annoying problem. I have a GTX 570 and I use proprietary drivers because I develop on CUDA and Compute Shaders (OGL 4.3). The problem is that when I do an upgrade, aptitude overwrites the link to libGL.so provided by nvidia. Thus, I have to manually reinstall proprietary drivers each time I do an upgrade.

For now, the solution I found is to put the concerned packages on hold but now I'm stuck because I can't upgrade anymore (lastest KDE upgrade dependencies)

Is there any way to be able to upgrade without overwriting the proprietary drivers ?
