Re: Easy nVidia driver update and installation
Aaron, I have another suggestion.
Why does nvidia-installer checks if it can rmmod nvidia driver at all? nvidia.ko binary module can be replaced in place (files are usually not locked in Unix'es as in Windows), and then user simply restarts X server, while X server nvidia driver reloads kernel module. I don't think it's difficult to check if nvidia.ko has changed on X server restart.
