Like I said, this indeed worked fine but at the moment I can only build
the 6111 version of the drivers even though I have the following
I assume I need the 6629 version of nvidia-kernel-source before
module-assistant will build this version?
It appears to be available in unstable
unstable (x11): NVIDIA binary kernel module source [non-free]
So I would like to know if it is possible to get that (and only that)
package from unstable and use it to build the newer version of the
drivers with module-assistant.
Or would this be considered unwise? Would I be able to revert back to
the current driver if anything goes wrong?
