One shouldn't have to go looking for information on how to fix "issues"
with installing a video card driver !  Imagine if we had to do that for
every piece of hardware on a PC !

BTW: Here is a good post on this topic.

Because they use these stupid proprietary drivers and every time I
update my kernel I have to screw around building drivers for the nvidia
cards.  Total waste of my time.  Totally unnecessary !

I will never buy an NVIDIA card again for this reason.  I'd replace the
one I have except its built into my laptop.
