Re: Problem after dist-upgrade and dpkg install -f (Probably nvidia packages related)

Hmm, bad thing. Maybe you should remove kdm, gdm or whatever loginmanager you 
are using out of the way, so it will not start after boot and force you into a 
bad X.

Then you can try dpkg-configure -a again.

You can also try to delete nvidia.ko in the kernel libs, so it inhibits to 
start nvidia-driver.

Try then dpkg-reconfigure -a again. Maybe it is working now.

You might try to deinstall the downloaded package with 
dpkg -r nvidia-blabla.deb

If this all fails, trigger me again, maybe I have some other ideas.

Good luck!
