Quick Question about nVidia Installers

I see that I have both nVidia-inst & nVidia-installer-dkms on my system…should I remove the dkms installer?

I think you should be able to, as nvidia-inst replaces nvidiia-installer-dkms

Would also recommend paying attention to the output when removing it, and report any conflict/dependancy issues if they should occur, so the EOS team could research if needed.
