nvidia grafic driver solution running multiple kernels
I finally found the solution for running the nvidia grafic driver with multiple kernels.
Here are my steps:
1. boot with the new kernel.
2. go to the following directory : /lib/modules/OLDKERNELVERSION/kernel/drivers/video
replace OLDKERNELVERSION with your own specific settings
3. make a copy of the old driver: cp nvidia.(k)o nvidia.(k)o.old
4. run the nvidia installer
this will create the new driver in /lib/modules/CURRENTKERNELVERSION/kernel/drivers/video
5. in the same directory as mentioned under 2 do a rename to the original name
mv nvidia.(k)o.old nvidia.(k)o
Now you should have a working driver with both kernel versions.
