How do I update my nvidia modules after updating my kernel?

At work I have a desktop with an nvidia card.

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GK104 [GeForce GTX 660 Ti] [10de:1183] (rev a1)

When ever I get an update that requires a reboot (Linux/kernel update). The graphics stops working, and I have to login with text terminal. I then type sudo jockey-text --disable=xorg:nvidia_current and sudo reboot. This allows me to login in a low res graphics mode. I Then reinstall, and then enable the nvidia driver, then logout/reboot.

Is there a way to fix this so that the nvidia driver is built into the new kernel?

I have DKMS and kernel headers installed.

To insure that you receive all Nvidia updates without need to reinstall them each time kernel updates use PPA below

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
  • Steinar, your comment seems a bit random. Is it on the correct question? – ctrl-alt-delor Aug 6 '13 at 20:42
