    Red face followed pure h8te's cuda guide -- nvidia driver fails

    Hi there,
    I am trying to install the Nvidia driver according to pure h8te's guid.

    the driver downloads alright and it even runs but when I go to install almost anything now I get an error
    Code:
    rrors were encountered while processing:
     nvidia-driver
     cuda-toolkit
     cuda-sdk
    even for nvclock or most things now... i get this

    Code:
    john@smithy1:~$ sudo apt-get install nvclock
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    nvclock is already the newest version.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    3 not fully installed or removed.

    Did you stop the Xserver? The nvidia-driver package is currently broken and I have having trouble fixing it with the new kernel. I would suggest using the source driver.
