Question Re: insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko and can't find my NVIDIA card?

I would be interested in knowing if nvidia somehow plans on dealing with this conflict, though.

That stinks. I wonder if they will mention it in their documentations. I am sure there are plenty of Debian users and they will run into this.
