           Summary: initrd rebuild and legacy nvidia...

           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED

if you have linux-restricted-modules installed and want to use NOT the nvidia driver from that  
version (or can't, as you have an old card), you have a problem: the new, not working driver get's  
rebuild after each reboot... Same would happe, if you want a newer driver...  
possible solutions:  
a) find a way to use the version from nvidia-installer first  
b) find a way to disable the rebuild for specific drivers
