Default Switching between Nvidia drivers and default ones

I would be interested to get an idiot-proof recipe for switching between the Nvidia driver and the default one shipped with the X windows system, a decision to be made whenever X is started. I understand that the Nvidia driver is called nvidia in the xorg.conf file, and the default one is called nv. However, I also uderstand that the Nvidia installation does something to some system libraries.

Any help here would be appreciated.

Ask your linux vendor for that..

Suse users have this:

switch2nv & switch2nvidia

it's quite easy.

Hmm... Those two scripts do not seem to take into account that installing the Nvidia drivers also changes some libraries, like libglx.so and libGL.so, I believe. How do they get around that?
