I'm trying to install the latest and stable proprietary Nvidia drivers for my newly built Skylake PC. It is running on Ubuntu 15.10. My VGA card id Nvidia GTX 660.
First I tried installing the drivers using
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
It's installing a legacy driver 304.128 but not the latest one. Then I purged all the nividia packages
sudo apt-get purge nvidia-* and tried installing
sudo apt-get install nvidia-355
When installing the drivers 355 the installation is giving me some errors about corrupted packages and the whole system crashes thus I couldn't get the error details as well.
So what I'm doing wrong here? Do I have to install it as a module to kernel as specified here? And why the current driver is a legacy driver (304.128)
Note: I haven't add any ppa, just went with the drivers that came with the distro.
