Hey,

I ran the "sudo apt-get install fglrx" and will test it this evening (don't have access to the MD from here). :$

Maybe stupid question, but this must run from the core, right?
Or must I login/run it on the 'moon device'?

We do the install on whatever physically holds the card.

If that be the moon then it be the moon.

IF you installed fglrx on the core... it is a remarkably obnoxious driver, and we will want to purge it with fire and reinstall a bunch of stuff if you find you suddenly have problems with video.
I never quit... I just ping out.

***Slik***, suddenly i'm afraid of restarting my core.
Since I've installed it on my core.  :-[

A simple 'apt-get remove fglrx'  / "apt-get install pluto-nvidia-video-drivers"  won't do the trick?  :-\

Not quite.
sudo apt-get -y remove --purge xorg-driver-fglrx fglrx* --force-yes
sudo apt-get -y install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri --force-yes
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
sudo apt-get -y install --reinstall xserver-xorg-core --force-yes
I never quit... I just ping out.
