After updating nvidia-drivers from 290.10 to 295.20-r1, I cannot start X<br>

NVRM: this kernel module has the version 290.10.<br>
What could be the problem?  I&#39;ve seen no other reports of<br>
this issue.<br>
The above error means that the kernel module that is currently loaded is the old one while the X driver is the new one.  In other words, you only tried to restart X instead of rebooting the machine or terminating X, doing &quot;modprobe -r nvidia&quot; and then restarting X.<br>

Contrary to other posts, you do NOT need to rebuild your kernel.  You only need to load the new kernel module.<br>
