Default Re: BIG problem with ALL officials .run files on Debian-SID AMD64

My guess is that the Linux KBUILD build system can't handle the space in the path name /home/raziel/Download/Drivers/AMD64/Chipset Nvidia/. The problem should go away if you rename the directory in question to e.g. to ChipsetNvidia.

Please note, however, that the 1.0-7676 NVIDIA .run installer likely won't be able to install the X driver modules and OpenGL libraries in the correct location on your system, since Debian GNU/Linux doesn't follow the ../lib64 convention used by other vendors. This will be worked around in future `nvidia-installer` versions. If you want, you can give the attached replacement binary a try with 1.0-7676:

# sh /path/to/ --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7676-pkg2
# unzip -ox /path/to/
# ./nvidia-installer -n
