 +====== Clean Driver Installation ======
 +===== Installing new drivers =====
 +On some occasions errors within Knald or Lys are due to cached shaders that the driver hasn't compiled correctly or are corrupted in some way. Whenever you install a new driver we always recommend that you perform a clean installation and delete any cached shaders if they are present on your system.
 +===== NVIDIA GPUs =====
 +==== Performing a Clean Installation of the driver ====
