Upgrade removes Nvidia-Smi (Nvidia Driver?)


New Member

I currently have a proxmox installation with GPU pass through on some containers for transcoding. I download the Nvidia driver from their website and install it, which works as expected. This driver is installed on both the host as well as the LXC that uses the pass through. I have come to notice that whenever the PVE updates (not the container) it seems to remove the nvidia driver from the system and I have to reinstall it again to get the "nvidia-smi" command to work again. Is there something I should be doing differently?
