Default Installing 7167 under Ubuntu


How do you install these drivers under Ubuntu without using apt. I installed the package linux-source, which I think contains the kernel sources and I tried to do init 3 , but that didn't work.

So then I went into XF86Config and switched the driver to something that I knew wouldn't work so that X would just crash and not load. This got me past the "X is running" message when installing the nVidia driver. But, then when I tried to install I got an error right when it was about to compile the driver.

I checked the sources and found out linux-source just puts a bz2 file in /usr/src. So then I went and extracted the file there and set up a symbolic link to the directory called linux. And then tried, but got the same error that something went wrong.

Any ideas what is going on? ANY help would help right now


BTW, I know you can use debian unstable and some pain in the ass installation, but I'd rather just use nVidia's installer because I'm more comfortable with it.
