The modinfo command does return the string shown above, so my question
is this, right now this machine is booted into the -112 kernel. Can I
run those two "sudo dkms" while still in the -112 kernel, or does it
have to be booted into -116 first? And also, if I do this, will it only
affect the -116 kernel? In other words, if for some reason this doesn't
work, will it still be able to boot into -112 with no changes to the
nVidia graphics in that kernel?
