Re: How to get a clean situation for nvidia drivers




Good idea, I'll check the metapackage, though.

The probable reason is that you've got the video drivers metapackage
(exact name escapes me ATM) installed.  As a result, all drivers, whether
needed or not, are installed.

Unless disk space is at a premium, you may as well leave them all in
place.  If nothing else, should you need to change your GFX card in
future, no matter from what manufacturer it comes, the drivers will most
likely already be in place.
