      I installed the 384 beta driver last night, and now my superposition scores exceed the fastest recorded on the Unigine site (8752 vs 8642). Not sure if it were Unigine updates or the drivers or both. But in any case, the performance on Linux looks very good.

          There are many Debian packages for the nvidia driver that are difficult to remove. Using the installer script is much easier. Also ubuntu/debian does not have the resources to test packages. Patching is simpler too when you use the .run file, you can work in your home directory instead of system directories.

            That's so dumb. Package management exists for very good reasons. Google them. You need to before you give out retarded advice.

              In the phoronix forum you find a discussion, where a laptop with nv gpu owner had a broken system after trying to roll back the gpu driver by using Debian/ubuntu packages. It is much simpler to type nvxxx.run --uninstall. Debian/ubuntu also has old nv drivers, like Inside Job writes. Solution: use the nvdidia driver from the nvidia site.

                That's not the point. If you need a different version of the driver or a modified installation, learn how to package for your distribution first. It is very irresponsible to ask users (especially new ones) to pollute their file systems with non-tracked files.
                They end up complaining to their distributions which can't be held responsible for files installed outside the package manager.
                You end up wasting people's time and in some cases causing damage that is not easily reverted.
                Again, learn how to create packages for your distribution or stick to stock packages.
                Even NVIDIA suggests you use distribution packages.

                    after having had problems with ppa, I install the first time from the distro so all is in place but later updates always from Nvidia. Never had problems like this.
