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 fi

This will compile and install the driver each time the kernel is updated.

Hi Akemi, this looks like a good option to put into the nvidia how to. Any
further ideas?
