Nvidia driver on 16.04

I had seen that in 16.04 actually, and had to

sudo apt-get purge nvidia*


sudo apt-get install nvidia-somenumber

twice, once to get the thing to at least start to light up the screen when plugged in to Nvidia, second time to get it to let past the login screen. Ctrl+Alt+F2 and plugging monitor into the builtin - not nvidia - is your friend while this bug is hopefully fixed asap!!

I’ve moved this to the Support & Help Requests category because this site isn’t designed to take tech support questions. Sorry. I’d recommend using IRC, the Ubuntu Forums or AskUbuntu
