No, he has a Debian Sarge!
You can unpack the nvidia drivers with NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run --extract-only
and search for makedevices.sh
in the newly NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1/usr/src/nv
created folder. At the end, you have this code:
if [ ! -c /dev/.devfsd ];
Now copy all that code up to fi
to a little script. Then, you can call it each time your system boots. You can call it just at the end of /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
(you have to call it before any initialisation splash screen is displayed).
