I installed nVidia driver 310.40 from nVidia's website on my 12.04 laptop. Now thier is an update in update manager showing there is a new version of nvidia driver in the repo 304.88-0ubuntu0.0.2. If I wanted to update back to this older version of the repo driver can I just do it over the top of the nvidia proprietary driver? Do I need to uninstall, purge or do anything else before changing back to the repo driver?
If I didn't want to install the repo driver how I can stop it from appearing in the update manager everyday?
Thanks for you help,
