Default HOWTO: Installing nvidia 100.14.11 on ubuntu (debian way)

I read some posts about installing nvidia drivers by simply run installer, that way not for me.
1) Download the following files:
and patch in attachments
2) Unpack that files:
$ dpkg-source -x nvidia-graphics-drivers_100.14.11-1.dsc
3) Apply patch to that directory (this patch simply replace emul/ia32-linux/usr/lib - debian place for ia32 libraries with usr/lib32 - ubuntu place for ia32 libraries in all paths, also fix one bug). In unpacked directory nvidia-graphics-drivers-100.14.11 run:
$ bzip2 -dc ../nvidia-graphics-drivers-100.14.11.ubuntu.patch.bz2 | patch -p1
4) Build the packages:
$ debian rules build
$ sudo debian rules binary
If you have x86-64 distribution:
$ sudo DEB_BUILD_ARCH=amd64 debian/rules binary
5) Install packages (before that uninstall all nvidia related things):
$ sudo dpkg -i ../nvidia-glx_100.14.11-1_amd64.deb ../nvidia-glx-ia32_100.14.11-1_amd64.deb ../nvidia-kernel-source_100.14.11-1_amd64.deb
6) Fix package version troubles. Add to /etc/apt/preferences:
Package: nvidia-kernel-source
Pin: version 100.14.11*
Pin-Priority: 999

Package: nvidia-glx
Pin: version 100.14.11*
Pin-Priority: 999
7) Install kernel module:
m-a a-i nvidia
Drivers will be installed as a standart deb packages. Thats all.
