Default Re: Should we reinstall nvidia driver for new kernels?

All external kernel modules need to be recompiled for each kernel you're running. This isn't specific to nvidia, it's not possible to work differently. In many cases distros have mechanisms to automate it (either packages with pre-compiled modules, or scripts that rebuild the modules, or some such). So you should inquire about how your distro does this.
