a need for nvidia-glx?

Hi, I have just installed the NVIDIA kernel from the script(?) downloaded from Everything works fine but I have a little question.

You see. If you install the driver the debian way, you have to install the nvidia-glx package. But if you install the driver from the script downloaded from, do you still need to install nvidia-glx?
