Default Re: Need explanation of options for NVIDIA driver install

./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1.run --advanced-options

NOTE: sh <file> and ./<file> are basically the same thing, but using ./ requires that the file permissions be executable (chmod +x <file>)

as far as the options, -aqn basically just speeds up the process by removing some of the questions the installer would normally make you answer.

Remember, you can almost always run <command> --help to get more info regarding options, in this case --help points you to --advanced-options for the complete list

Code:
  -a, --accept-license
      Bypass the display and prompting for acceptance of the
      NVIDIA Software License Agreement.  By passing this option
      to nvidia-installer, you indicate that you have read and
      accept the License Agreement contained in the file
      'LICENSE' (in the top level directory of the driver
      package).


  -q, --no-questions
      Do not ask any questions; the default (normally 'yes') is
      assumed for all yes/no questions, and the default string is
      assumed in any situation where the user is prompted for
      string input.  The one question that is not bypassed by
      this option is license acceptance; the license may be
      accepted with the commandline option '--accept-license'.


  -n, --no-precompiled-interface
      Disable use of precompiled kernel interfaces.
