I would like to know if I can install
nvidia graphics drivers on a system running
Ubuntu 16.0.4 LTS without rebooting.
I have this requirement created that I should be able to:
1) Install nvidia graphics drivers, say version X, on Ubuntu machine. Ubuntu, by default, come with nouveau driver. So this step should uninstall nouveau and install nvidia driver version X 2) Uninstall nvidia driver version X and install nvidia version Y.
Basically, I would like to switch between graphics drivers(uninstall/install) without rebooting the system.
I would like to know if someone has tried this. Or got any idea how to achieve this.
modprobecommand to load kernel modules (drivers).
