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

Guess it's ok to laugh about it now :-)
Btw props to MrMEEE - this driver has totally saved me from having to do cad
in windows. Legendary piece of work! I don't even mind that it wiped my
machine the first time I tried it :-)

Wow - just read the commit thread on github. Took me longer than it did
to reinstall my machine.
Epic. Had no idea that was going on.

Just place the space before usr.

Example:# rm -rf / usr/...

It anyway doesn't come with any warranty so..

“Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.”

Don't think life plain sailing;
There's danger of failing,
Though bright seem the future to be;
But honor and labor,
And truth to your neighbor,
Will bear you safe over life's sea.
