Installing NVIDIA drivers on Debian - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I've installed Debian GNU/Linux v3.0r2 Linux kernel version 4.18 i686 There were two packages installed: nvidia-kernel-src and nvidia-glx-src I have tried to install NVIDIA drivers as README file of these packages describes it.

    Default Installing NVIDIA drivers on Debian

    I've installed Debian GNU/Linux v3.0r2

    Linux kernel version 4.18 i686

    There were two packages installed: nvidia-kernel-src and nvidia-glx-src

    I have tried to install NVIDIA drivers as README file of these packages
    describes it.

    But when I did everything required, system wanted me to configure kernel
    (why?). I've entered some settings and package for nvidia-kernel was
    compiled.

    All kernel modules on my system are located at 2.4.18-686 directory, but new
    module was placed in the 2.4.18 directory. I'm not able to load this module,
    even if I put it into the right directory.

    So nvidia-glx was installed without problems, but it doesn't work because of
    lack of nvidia-kernel.

    Do you have kernel sources installed on your box? I think that is what
    it is looking for. If or when you do, you'll need to go to the root of
    your kernel source tree and do;

    make mrproper
    make oldconfig
    make dep

    If I got this right, this will create everything you need to compile
    that kernel module.

    BTW, you may want to go and get the latest version. The new installer
    package works very slick!

    You can also compile the nvidia driver installing only the kernel header
    package (kernel-headers-2.4.18-686). This way you save a lot of disk
    space and don't have to configure the source.
