Default nvidia drivers how to compile just once

hi, i'm a linux user, i would like to know if it's possible to compile the nvidia driver just once, not everytime i change or upgrade the kernel.

thanks

No. If you use the official nVidia Linux drivers you must compile them each time you update the kernel.
The only way around this is to install the Kmod-nvidia drivers. Then these will get updated when you update the Kernel.
