I am trying to set up my computer for CUDA development as per this instruction. Before installation it recommends uninstalling nvidia drivers and suggest running
apt-get remove --purge "nvidia*". But this command will also remove ubuntu-desktop. Is this safe? I don't want to fall in bigger mess while solving smaller problems.
My laptop runs ubuntu 12.04 64-bit, Nvidia gt325M, optimus graphics card.
Please also take a note is the instruction good enough or not. I know optimus makes serious trouble with linux and I want to play on safe side here.
