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

It took me longer to load the pictures in that commit than to reinstall my machine.

@diegoviola

DMA-BUF is the real solution to this problem.

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
