I think Nvidia people could store an md5 checksum for the whole install file, just to be 100% safe. (although the first 6 lines skipped should not cause big trouble.)
Thank you for your interest. I tried to run md5sum against driver and i got same value.
Code:
md5sum NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.44-pkg2.run 
3a342f68d276d8fa020a1ae3145b9175  NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.44-pkg2.run
So it looks ok and when i tried same command like that script, i got this:
Code:
 tail -n +6 NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.44-pkg2.run | md5sum | cut -b-32
6b36ff8e48f8adc80cd89b0d06d79e3b
So everything looks ok, but anyway i got same error like it's written in my first post. Also i tried to comment first 3 rows, but i got this error:
Code:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.44-pkg2.run 
Verifying archive integrity... NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.44-pkg2.run: line 757: [: 4072792172: unary operator expected
OK

NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.44-pkg2.run: line 797: ./nvidia-installer: Permission denied
And yes, i used binary mode for downloading. Help me please Ask me for whatever you want.

PROBLEM SOLVED !

I don't know how, but it's done. I recompiled my kernel again with same config file. But i used only "make" instead "make all" , anyway it should be the same, if i got it right. Really, i don't know where i made a mistake and of course i would like to know that. Thank you very much TZP for your help and i am sorry for wasting your time.
