Code:
# apt-get install module-assistant 
apt-get install nvidia-kernel-common 
apt-get install nvidia-glx 
# apt-get install nvdia-kernel-source 
apt-get install nvidia-xconfig 

# then need to activate the driver from the terminal by typing:

# m-a prepare 
# m-a a-i nvidia 
modprobe nvidia 
nvidia-xconfig 

# then shut-down and reboot the PC and verify if the driver is OK typing from the terminal the command glxinfo | grep render 

 
glxinfo | grep render 


# I looks to work and it gives:
# glxinfo  | grep render
# direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)
# OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) 945GME GEM 20091221 2009Q4 x86/MMX/SSE2
#
# lsmod | grep nvid
# nvidia               9843768  40 
# i2c_core               12803  3 videodev,i2c_i801,nvidia

You could also do
Code:
apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-kernel-dkms
and dkms will do the rest, plus it will build the module on every nvidia or kernel update automatically.
