Default Find out what nvidia driver version - HOWTO?

Hi forum,

Sorry for asking a probably easy question, but searching gives way too many results to drill down to an actual solution...

How do I find out what nvidia driver version a linux system is running?

I have found nvidia-settings -v, but this is reporting the nvidia-settings version off course...

Thanks a lot for helping out!

Erwin

Wew, thanks for your very quick reply!

Code:
linuxmce@dcerouter:~$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/version
NVRM version: NVIDIA UNIX x86 Kernel Module  180.18  Thu Dec 18 14:29:33 PST 2008

I knew it must be simple, but it's not simple if you don't know... :-)

Thanks a lot!
