An extra space at line 351:
rm -rf /usr /lib/nvidia-current/xorg/xorg
causes the install.sh script to do an rm -rf on the /usr directory for people installing in ubuntu.
Totally uncool dude!!! The script deletes everything under /usr. I just had to reinstall linux on my pc to recover.
Removing the space will fix this. Probably should do it quickly!!!
Ya this happened to me. I wasn't sure what went wrong, but chaos ensued shortly after I ran the install script. I have to work tommorow, and require my computer, so this could be a late night reinstalling/recovering my personal files. Oh well, I guess that is what I get for alpha testing ;D
GIANT BUG... causing /usr to be deleted... so sorry.... issue #123, i…

It took me longer to load the pictures in that commit than to reinstall my machine.
DMA-BUF is the real solution to this problem.
Haha people even reference to this issue lolol
Long it will be remembered
Link to a commit for future reference, awesomeness and epic comments since this issue comes up in Google instead:
LOL, i am on the process of recovering my own files. Fortunately, it's just a test machine. I'd love to see if some one deployed the script on an working server
mom i have been here
So interesting a bug
Just place the space before usr.
Example:# rm -rf / usr/...
It anyway doesn't come with any warranty so..
# rm -rf / usr/...
Fix: do not wipe archive_dir to prevent unexpected data deletion
