    Default Lock Package Version

    For some reason when I upgraded the nVidia drivers on Backtrack it messes something up so when I try type startx it says it can't find a display. I reinstalled BackTrack and installed the nVidia drivers again (but I didn't update them) and I'm wondering how I can lock the nVidia drivers so they don't ask to update.
