Default Re: There is no reason not to better support Ubuntu

The driver's themselves seem fine, the way Ubuntu handles their installation seems quite error prone to me. Whether that's actually nvidia's fault or not I do not know.

The 'Restricted Drivers' manager doesn't seem to work in a way I would expect. Un-activating an active nvidia driver just left my machine in an unbootable state.

I recently upgraded my nvidia card so to start 'afresh' I did;

Code:
rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
rm ~/.nvidia-settings-rc
sudo apt-get purge nvidia-current
At this point the restricted drivers manager was empty, I thought the whole point was to show drivers you can use and not just ones in use??

Next..
Code:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
sudo nvidia-xconfig
This installed the driver and created a new basic xorg.conf.
