Switching from DDM to sgfxi might be an option that Sparky might consider..?..
That would be reasonable, would save a lot of work and probably would allow to re-include some more "exotic" kernel configurations (like Liquorix) into the distro, especially if sgfxi can also install or at least suggest the needed kernel headers. Pavroo, maybe we should do some tests on this?
EDIT: Although smxi got the job done and installed the nVidia drivers, I can see a few negative things about it:
1. Source install - instant breakage when kernel upgrades happen.
2. smxi annoys the hell out of me with all those questions and it's not something easy to use for someone without at least some Linux knowledge.
3. It requires the user to go down to CLI to run (won't run in a X terminal). A big no-no in our case.

As I said: it gets the job done, but it's too loud and asks too many questions. However... we could base our GUI solutions on those scripts.
