Jockey proceeds to uninstall 'ubuntu-desktop' and X server in Natty
Currently the proprietary Nvidia driver in Ubuntu Natty does not work with the X server. Therefore, both packages conflict with each other. Installing 'nvidia-current', or any other Nvidia driver, will remove the X server and with that also 'ubuntu-desktop'. Install the X server, and therefore also 'ubuntu-desktop', will uninstall any proprietary Nvidia driver still present on the desktop.
At the moment the proprietary Nvidia drivers are still visible in Jockey. You can install them, and Jockey will proceed to install the 'nvidia-current' or 'nvidia-173' package, depending on your choice. Jockey will even do this when it requires the removal of the X server and 'ubuntu-desktop'.
I think that Jockey should refuse to install any driver when it leads to the removal of 'ubuntu-desktop' or such a key element of the desktop as the X server. It should warn the user that it is impossible to proceed and abort. Currently there is a risk that users break their own system and end up without a graphical shell.
