with the new self-extracting .run installer from Nvidia getting drivers to install is simple, but how do you get rid of the old drivers and what is the proper way to do things to upgrade in linux?
one of my favorite things about the window vs of the Nvidia drivers is that you can just run the new installer and it will take care of all of the details like removing what needs to be removed and adding what is required to run the system. once you reboot you are on the fresh new driver set.
how does this work in linux. i am experiancing issues with the last set of Nvidia drivers on my one linux box that i play World of Warcraft on via Cedega, and this is the next step in figuring out why all of the sudden i am having FPS issues.
been playing the game just fine on that system until about a week ago the system lag started getting bad in some areas, now my FPS is stuck no higher then 2FPS.
up until that happend NOTHING changed in my system. ihave not run an apt-get upgrade in a while as nothing was broke.
my distro is Debian-sarge with the 2.4.x-speakup kernel.
