Always fresh mode and everything returned to normal.

Deleted Nvidia module and done a standard boot and everything still normal.

Put the Nvidia module back and the menu/Icon corruption returned.

I'm starting to think Modules are more hassle than they are worth because if you install Porteus to a Ext4 hardrive with the changes folder active you can then do a standard Nvidia
driver install and the copy disable-nouveau.conf over to /ect/ and reboot as many time as you like and there is never any symlink errors.

As soon as you make a xzm module of your desktop settings then all the symlink errors return.

This icon corruption sounds like a mimeapp cache problem. It's a messy thing, indeed. But it's strange because I didn't face this problem with none of the 3 machines I've tested Nvidia driver module.

Regarding your complaining about modules, I understand your frustration. Linux has this power of causing madness :D But believe me, modules is one of the most interesting things Porteus has. It gives you the ability to have an always fresh OS; so no entropy :good:

--latest
Connect to NVIDIA's FTP site, and report the latest driver version and the url to the latest driver file.

--update
Connect to NVIDIA's FTP site, download the most recent driver file, and install it.
nvidia-installer --latest
nvidia-installer --update

These work from command line , when a new driver comes out i'll try the update function.

@fulalas:
Is this procedure still actual?

Thanks.
Carpe diem.
