Default Disabling 32 bit compability from commandline

I'm making a script for recompiling the nv-driver whenever a user boots with a new kernel. My problem is that I don't know how to disable the 32 bit compability libs from the command line of nvidia-installer.

Does anyone know?

You can allways use the --extract-only option from the installer and install the files by hand. Run the makefile in the kernel source directory and let it install itself and then copy all libs by hand from the script.

@tingdahl: you could also just alternate between the -pkg0 and the -pkg2 variant of the .run installer, depending on whether you wish to install the 32-bit libraries or not.
