Default Re: Keep nvidia module on kernel update

Is there an easy way to prevent the deletion of the old modules ? Is it enough to just copy back a backup of the module (can't try it now) ?

Not enough information, as usual.

Compiling? Name it something different.
Kernel update within the same series? Tough luck, use dkms or a sane package manager.
