Re: Installing twice works!!
I have a few more questions:
0) Which nvidia driver version did you have installed before you experienced this problem? Or was this the first time you had installed the nvidia driver?
1) Does this problem reproduce every time you install a different nvidia driver version? In other words, if you try to install 1.0-8174, does the problem return?
2) If you install the driver with the -s switch does it still reproduce?
3) Just to confirm, you're installing the driver as root, and not with sudo or any other non-root alternative?
