Why are the packages for newer > versions in i386 but not amd64? Randall Donald is the DD who maintains all the nvidia packages. He also maintains a web page with news about his work @ http://people.debian.org/~rdonald/ An unofficial package repository is also provided, which you can access by adding the following to your source.list: deb http://people.debian.org/~rdonald/nvidia unstable/amd64/ deb http://people.debian.org/~rdonald/nvidia unstable/all/ One you have the nvidia-kernel-source package installed, it's just a case of: make-kpkg --rootcmd=fakeroot --append-to-version=xxx --added-modules=nvidia-kernel modules_image This results in the creation of a nvidia-kernel*.deb image, which you can install with dpkg. Note that the nvidia-glx package will _not_ install until after nvidia-kernel. I'm running a 2.6.15 kernel with the latest .8178 nvidia drivers here, and haven't experienced any problems whatsoever.
