I am using the official nVidia driver because my card (GeForce 750 Ti) isn't yet supported by the Ubuntu one. Every time the kernel updates, my system breaks.
I've formatted my system two-three times because of kernel updates and today I decided to try to fix it. I tried to fix it with this method and surprisingly it works.
Switch to console (After waiting for the nVidia driver to crash, as it does when you switch consoles :p)
Run a complete uninstall
sudo ./<DRIVER>.run -uninstall
Reboot and switch to the on-board card
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Reboot and switch back to the NVIDIA GPU
Is there a better/easier/faster way to update without going through all this?
