Thank you Valerio,
of course you're right ! It did not correctly add using
NVIDIA-installer-programm to my note - it should have been pointed out to b)
As you mentioned in case of a) Debian has own packages in it's repository.
By the way:
My kernel 184.108.40.206 (running for a while of ~ 1,5 years) resulted of a previous
Debian Sarge installtion with a lower kernel-version, so I had to compile a
new kernel (to fit my hardware AND of course to learn more about
kernel-compiling and adjustment )and therefore the Debian-way at that time
was no option.
