I have not done this for a while but you can automate the installation
of the proprietary Nvidia driver by providing appropriate flags. The
following command worked when I tested:
sh ./NVIDIAxxxxx.run -a -q -N --ui=none
Others posted this:
sh ./NVIDIAxxxxx.run --no-network -s -K -n
Once you find the way to get the installalation working without human
intervention, you can put it in a place like /etc/rc.local :
if [ ! -e /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko ]; then
echo "Installing the proprietary NVIDIA driver."
/full/path/to/ NVIDIAxxxxx.run --no-network -s -K -n
This will compile and install the driver each time the kernel is updated.
