    Maybe a bit outdated, no 180.18.04, but my script does:

    wget -N http://kanotix.com/files/install-nvidia-debian.sh

    sudo rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

    login in vt1 (ctrl-alt-f1), then run

    sudo sh install-nvidia-debian.sh

    be sure you reset the xorg.conf file like descibed here when you used the u way to install a driver first. the script does enable dkms but after mesa or xorg updates you have to run it again.

    In his world users love open source so much that they don't use adobe flash. No one uses Opera. No one uses the ATI Blob (that conveniently doesn't exist in freedom rants). No one cares about Wine because all it does is run closed source applications. No one cares about graphics performance because no one plays those binary only games. There wasn't any press at all over UT3 for Linux. No one cared, right? It's closed who would.

    Open/Closed. Black/White. Hot/Cold. It's all or nothing. Pick your sides you can't be lukewarm or gray.
    This sums it up nicely

    Linux has always been part operating system and part religion. The problem now is that it is getting harder to stay clear of the fundamentalists... the ones who would happily blow things up to keep them pure.

    Religious groups and individuals are often alleged of having double standards and called hypocrites. For example, in one such religion, it's evil to deal with Nvidia because they provide a closed source solution. At the same time, it is not evil to play a closed source game. The unfaithful like me have a hard time understanding this. The righteous amongst us should either step it up and troll all topics involving closed source software or stop trolling every post about Nvidia software.

    This is funny. Looking at the changelog you can read:

    "Fixed an X server crash when viewing the website www.tim.it."

    What? Lol that website was capable of making the driver crash X server??

    Perhaps Adobe's Hardware accelerated flash exposed a bug? IDK... never had an issue with that site (probably because I never went there ).

    Do you have any idea how many "site specific" bugs have been found and fixed on ALL drivers Foss/blobs and otherwise?

    At least for me, this is the first time I see such a thing in an NVIDIA changelog.
