To install the NVIDIA driver contained within the .run file without

using nvidia-installer, you can use the included Makefile:
 

    sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run --extract-only

    cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1

    make install
 

This method of installation is not recommended, and is only provided

as a last resort, should nvidia-installer not work correctly on

your system.
