Default Re: Easy nVidia driver update and installation

Missing hardware is one reason, definitely, but there are others that include EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL symbols, system-level problems that prevent the driver from probing the GPUs, and other drivers such as nvidiafb attaching to the GPUs and preventing the nvidia module from working. I'm sure there are other reasons too -- zander would have a better idea of what exactly can go wrong.
