Default Re: Problem installing NVIDIA driver on Debian

Im running debian unstable and there the nvidia drivers are simply available as packages (binaries for stock debian kernels, as well as source). No need to use the nvidia installer.

Personally I just get the kernel source and nvidia module source from debian, unpack them both in /usr/src, config the kernel and do the following from the kernel source dir :

make-kpkg --append-to-version blah kernel_image modules_image

And then install the resulting packages in /usr/src. Works like a charm, cleaner than using the nvidia installer.
