Ever thought about releasing a DKMS rpm/deb package of nvdia drivers
Hi nvidia supporters,
Did you ever mention to release a nvidia driver as a DKMS package ?
This is a great project created by DELL to avoid manually reconfiguring kernel modules after each kernel update.
The software is GPL, so everbody can use it !
We use many dell servers and i'm a real fan of this software, cause i do not have to recompile my kernel driver modules after each kernel update !
Information about DKMS can be found here:
So, would it be hard to release a nvidia dkms package ?
It would make installation and upgrades very easy. just install an newer nvidia dkms rpm or deb file.
And after a kernel update, just reboot and take a look how dkms automatically builds a new nvidia modul for your new kernel !
Whats you opinion about this ?

I think this is up to GNU/Linux distribuitions.
For instance Mandriva provides this way of nvidia/ati/other drivers installation.
mandriva > all
