Plymouth no longer hangs when booting with more than 1 monitor connected!

However, same result as charlie-tca regarding actual driver installation.

I consider it failed if it shows all three nvidia drivers installed, but none "are currently in use". The average user is not going to be aware they must remove the driver they want to install.

Installation via Jockey worked only if I clicked on 'remove' first and then after "removing" the non-installed driver I could finally choose 'activate'.
