Question Uninstalling NVIDIA driver in Linux

I am going to the competitor's side (ATI) soon. How and where do I uninstall NVIDIA's driver and clean up the left overs?

Thank you in advance.

Sacrilege! Well, its inevitable on occasion, but have fun getting acceleration to work with their drivers!



If you installed simply with the nvidia-installer you can have the great pleasure of its use again.

nvidia-installer --uninstall

If you didn't extract all that out of the .run file, you can do the same, however I can't verify the command line right now, try:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run --help

I think that'll get you started. Leftovers should be scarce if at all present, I'll leave that to anyone who has actually uninstalled them!
