I haven't finished the control files therefore I suggest you to follow
these instructions so as to install only
the nvidia-$(flavour)-kernel-source package (which is the one that
builds the kernel module):

1) install the linux-headers for your kernel
2) build the packages (a simple "dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot" will be
enough)
3) install the nvidia-$(flavour)-kernel-source package and its
dependencies

This package will try to build the kernel module with dkms. If the build
fails, DKMS will tell you where you can find the log
(/var/lib/dkms/nvidia/your_driver_version/build/make.log).

NOTE-1: the patches which I'm using are in "debian.binary/patches" as
usual.

NOTE-2: none of the 4 flavours builds with Intrepid's kernel (since it's
Xen-enabled). They do build with Hardy's Xen kernel though (thanks to
the patches which I have included).

I look forward to seeing you patches.

Thanks in advance,

Alberto Milone (aka tseliot)
