Yes, the method using module- installer is prefered.  Using nvidias
install script installs stuff on your system without the package
management knowing (e.g. installing changes libraries and stuff).  Can
work without any problem, but can cause many, many problems, e.g. when
update the packages to which those files originaly belong.

Yours sincerely,
