Why 195.36.03 when 195.36.08 is the latest stable?
It's the version he was using.

As Qaridarium comes across as a possible ATI fanboi I wasn't sure if the intent of his post was just a dig at the nVidia drivers. I was simply highlighting how simple the standard installation procedure was, and if he was having legitimate issues, it would show him how to accomplish his end goal.
Additionally, although your script may automate adding the nVidia driver with a dkms.conf, etc. some people aren't comfortable installing software from non-qualified sources, and the standard procedure would also be of use for those.
I don't think the 190 blob will build on the .33 kernel yet. The 195 blobs might, but they've been pulled because of that minor issue with the firmware frying the graphics chip by not activating the gpu fan under heavy stress.
Indeed. I mistakenly took that version number from the post by hdas. But it was my intention to use the version number in the post that Qaridarium was using. Doesn't change the fact that's it's a fairly irrelevant point though.
The nVidia driver's installation procedure hasn't change much in a long, long time. If he can't generalise the instructions across installer file names then he's likely not qualified to be installing it in the first place.
