I'm not sure I understand... I'm trying to get nvidia-96 to work
following the updates from 10.10 Alpha 3 (which works as installed and
only breaks when 2:22.214.171.1245-1ubuntu1 is installed in place of
2:126.96.36.1992-0ubuntu2 (btw: you can't back pin 2:188.8.131.522-0ubuntu2
as 905 seems to remove it completely from the system). How would
removing nvidia-current help? Further, it's not installed on this system
as nvidia-current related to 256.35.
But thanks again for trying (I meant that) :-)
