How to remove nvidia kernel module 295.40?

Postby skipper on Sun Mar 10, 2013 3:59 pm

I tried to install cuda 5.0 on Linux Mint 13 as follows:

1. add relevant stuff to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

blacklist amd76x_edac
blacklist vga16fb
blacklist nouveau
blacklist rivafb
blacklist nvidiafb
blacklist rivatv

2. remove nvidia drivers and shut down the X-server

sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia*
sudo service mdm stop

3. install cuda 5.0

chmod +x cuda_5.0.35_linux_64_ubuntu11.10-1.run
sudo ./cuda_5.0.35_linux_64_ubuntu11.10-1.run

ISSUE: After the restart, an error message tells that the nvidia kernel module version is 295.40 and the installed driver version is 304.54.

How can I replace nvidia kernel module version 295.40 with version 304.54?

Hi Skipper-

the easiest way would be got to synaptic and simply do a search for nvidia remove nvidia 295. xx and install 304.xx

good luck

It's too bad jocky-gtk doesn't work in 14. that was even easier :(

Just found this on the Mint 14 page.
Additional drivers
To install additional drivers, please run the "Software Sources" tool from "Menu->Preferences->Software Sources" and click on the "Additional Drivers" tab. The tool used in previous versions of Linux Mint (Jockey) was discontinued upstream in Ubuntu.


you may want to try that first.
