Hi All,

I want to manually install the nvidia video driver, so i have the newest 
version. Installing the driver goes fine, and afterwards i can 
edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and restart the X server. Then i have accelerated 

But after i reboot i don't have a working configuration. It turns out the 
kernel module is not the same version as the Xorg driver. Therefore i have to 
run the following 2 commands after the system is booted in text mode:

sudo rmmod nvidia
sudo insmod /lib/modules/2.6.20-16-generic/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko

Could anybody tell me how i can completely disable the driver from kubuntu, so 
the new driver is loaded?

Best regards,
The only stupid question is the one you don't ask
