A few day ago, Ubuntu 16.04 repository released 4.4.0-66-generic kernel updates. Unfortunate for me, the updated kernel resulted in a purple screen after a reboot. I gathered it was because I had installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-375.39.run in linux 4.4.0-64-generic kernel and the updated kernel did not have the 375.39 driver. I managed to recover my system back to using linux 4.4.0-64-generic kernel. However, my present issue are:
- How do I install the 375.39 driver for linux 4.4.0-66-generic kernel when my system is updated?
- In my present system using 4.4.0-64-generic kernel, the recovery somehow resulted in tty1 to tty6 all covered by a black screen. The recovery procedures executed are described here https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2354955.. This black screen now prevents me from having command line access to linux, which is very problematic. Example, I can't stop lightdm to uninstall the 375.39 driver or even install any NVidia driver
Appreciate instructions that can resolve my 2 issues.
