Too bad that whose who don't known the basics try to make such deep

The last time I really need to reboot after graphics driver update
was when I updated kernel too (actually I updated kernel several times
without rebooting before I updated the NVIDA driver and reboot).

IMHO, the minimal steps to use new NVIDIA driver are
1. shutdown X system;
2. logout as usual user and login as root;
3. unload nvidia (kernel) module;
4. load new nvidia (kernel) module;
5. start X system.
