bug in program! -
without any warning message on deinstall xorg
jockey question root pass and install nvidia-driver, and reboot warning.

We actually disabled the nvidia and fglrx drivers in Jockey in current Natty, as they do not work with our current version. Unfortunately Jockey now creates standard drivers around the existing packages and thus still offers them for installation, which causes this breakage. I fixed that in bzr now, sorry for the mess!

This bug was fixed in the package jockey - 0.9.1-0ubuntu1

jockey (0.9.1-0ubuntu1) natty; urgency=low

  * New upstream bug fix release. Changes since our previous trunk snapshot:
    - Do not create standard drivers for disabled custom drivers. This caused
      NVidia/FGLRX to still be offered in Jockey, causing a lot of damage.
