Installing Nvidia Driver

For a howto read from here on this page : ...NvidiaGraphicsDrivers... By default Debian comes with a stock kernel : uname -r gives me 2.6.32-5-amd64. You will need module-assistant and nvidia-kernel-common : apt-get install module-assistant nvidia-kernel-common . After that you run the following command m-a auto-install nvidia-kernel${VERSION}-source . And that will be all to build the nvidia kernel module !
After that you will need to install the X driver and user-space libraries package : apt-get install nvidia-glx${VERSION} .
I use the same xorg.conf as on my old computer !
