NVidia Driver Installer errors

I've recently upgraded my kernel, and as a result I've had to reinstall my NVidia driver. However, it seems I've lost my accelerated graphics as the installer is confused as to what directory to look in for


-> Uninstalling NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 (1.0-7174):
-> done.
-> Uninstallation of existing driver: NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for
   Linux-x86 (1.0-7174) is complete.
-> Installing 'NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86' (1.0-7174):
   executing: './usr/src/nv/'...
   executing: '/sbin/ldconfig'...
   /sbin/ldconfig: /usr/local/lib/ is not a symbolic link
   /sbin/ldconfig: /usr/local/lib/ is not a symbolic link
   /sbin/ldconfig: /usr/local/lib/ is not a symbolic link
   /sbin/ldconfig: /usr/lib/ is not a symbolic link
   /sbin/ldconfig: /usr/lib/ is not a symbolic link
   executing: '/sbin/depmod -aq'...
-> done.
-> Driver file installation is complete.
-> Running post-install sanity check:
-> done.
-> Post-install sanity check passed.
-> Shared memory test passed.
-> Running runtime sanity check:
ERROR: The runtime configuration check failed for library ''
       (expected: '/usr/lib/', found: '/usr/local/lib/'). 
       The most likely reason for this is that conflicting OpenGL libraries are
       installed in a location not inspected by nvidia-installer.  Please be
       sure you have uninstalled any third-party OpenGL and third-party
       graphics driver packages.
-> done.
-> Runtime sanity check failed.
ERROR: Installation has failed.  Please see the file
       '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details.  You may find suggestions
       on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
       driver download page at
So, instead of looking in /usr/lib, it's taking the entry for /usr/local/lib (which I don't know what package it belongs to). So does anyone have any ideas as to how to point the installer back in the right direction?
