OK.  But can I go on to do the install, counting on the nv drivers, at least
not risking a corrupted, non-bootable system?
Or should I wait, in case for how long?

"Perhaps there is no such thing as unilateral power. After all, the man 'in
power' depends on receiving information all the time from outside. He
responds to that information just as much as he 'causes' things to
happen...it is an interaction, and not a lineal situation. But the myth of
power is, of course, a very powerful myth, and probably most people in this
world more or less believe in it. It is a myth, which, if everybody believes
in it, becomes to that extent self-validating. But it is still
epistemological lunacy and leads inevitably to various sorts of disaster."
